Best/Worst glossed-over factoid: Goodnight, sweet Xbox
Release Date: Holiday 2006
During the Microsoft pre-E3 press conference, the head honcho of the Xbox Peter Moore inadvertently pronounced our tried and true, big green machine dead (or close to death). As Moore rattled through a roughly two hour spiel on the future of Microsoft, he neglected to touch on the current Xbox with anything beyond a passing mention.
"By Holiday 2006, we'll have 832 titles for the Xbox," stated Moore proudly, and then promptly moved on - not mentioning what those titles would be or how many would actually be new titles. With Xbox Live already making a near-complete conversion to next-gen content, we're saddened to see our old console striding proudly into a late 2006 sunset.
