Microsoft says Windows 8 manager Brian Hall's "new Xbox" quote was misunderstood.

Published on Aug 8, 2012

When a Windows 8 manager says Microsoft wants it's email services to work with a "new Xbox" people tend to notice - and that's exactly what happened earlier this week.

Unfortunately, as we thought it might, Microsoft has revealed it was all a mix-up.

“The comments to The Verge were not understood in their intended context,” reads an MS statement. “When Brian mentioned a ‘new wave of products,’ he was referring to the full lineup of products coming later this year from Microsoft, including Windows 8, Office, Windows Phone and of course our fall Xbox update which will bring a host of new consumer experiences like Xbox Music, Videos, Games on Windows 8 and Xbox SmartGlass.”

Oh well. It's not as if Microsoft isn't working on a next-gen Xbox is it?
