XboxneXt was the name for Xbox One, not a new console

Rumours appeared yesterday of a developer at Microsoft working on the next Xbox, after the word 'XboxNext' was spotted on his LinkedIn profile. Well, as it turns out, someone didn't do their research properly, because all 'XboxneXt' is was the old codename for Xbox One.

A simple email to Microsoft would likely have revealed the truth, but the story came out and therefore Microsoft was forced to deny any plans for a new console with the following statement.

"Xbox neXt was an old internal team name for a group that worked on releasing Xbox One and is not related to a future console. We have nothing further to share."?

Phil Spencer recently said that he wouldn't be a big fan of providing a slightly improved console as per the rumoured PS4K, saying, ?"If we're going to go forward with anything, I want it to be a really substantial change for people - an upgrade," while in our eyes means a completely new Xbox with new features rather than just one with increased performance.?

They have already provided a slightly improved console with the elite, giving it a faster hard drive (SSHD). But a new Xbox ONE would need to have more power than just being 4K as currently some games are like 1080p on PS4 whereas 900p on Xbox ONE.
