The Microsoft Xbox has always been a class on its own. Since the very first time when the original Xbox was introduced, this gaming console always gave the Sony PlayStation a tough time. However, the Xbox 360 is quite old now and one may expect Microsoft to unveil a new Xbox some time soon. Actually, it is being said that we might not see a new Xbox as late as 2015.

The image embedded above, has been taken from Ben Patterson’s web portfolio, a part of Intelligent Entertainment Business, which is a group that Microsoft has got involved to look into possible user experience scenarios in the future. If this leak is something to go by, then it is certain that we shall not see a new Xbox until the year 2015.
When it comes to console wars, Sony and Microsoft are always head to head. Previously, it has been reported that the Sony PlayStation 4 release is expected after four years, which puts the release date near to the expected release date of the new Xbox.
What’s worth waiting for so long, is the fact that one would long to see what exactly Microsoft will be able to achieve with the new Xbox in a period by four years. Undoubtedly, in 2015, the technology is going to be far better than what it already is. We just have to painstakingly wait for another four years to find out what Microsoft will bring in the new Xbox.
