Slimline Xbox 360 due in December?

Microsoft exec in the firing line

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Microsoft has fanned the flame of speculation that it's working on a slimline Xbox 360, by retracting an executive’s claim that an announcement will be made before Christmas.

According to a report by Split Screen, Rahul Datta, Microsoft India’s Retail Services Manager, told the gaming website that an announcement regarding a slimline Xbox 360 can be expected around December.

Before you all rush off to place advance orders, it’s worth digging your spoons into a bag of salt because the comment is neither a confirmation nor denial of a slimmer Xbox 360.

However, it’s odd that Microsoft would discredit Datta’s statement by telling Split Screen that his comments were not in relation to a slimline Xbox 360 after all.

So Microsoft will still make an announcement in December - it hasn't denied that. But what is it going to say?

We’ll leave it up to you to make a decision on this one.
