Rumor: next Xbox comes in 2014 due to problems with the license Blu-ray
After so many rumors coming from the four corners of the globe, today I propose a rumor "original" even if our hope is that proves wrong. Our source, the same one that we had anticipated correctly the release of his latest Xbox 360 update, informed us that the new Xbox will fail to see the light at the end of 2013, as many expect, but comes instead in 2014, presumably in the first half of the year.
Our informant explains that "leaked" comes from the management of a large chain commerciale italiana, which is preparing to launch PS4 at the end of the year and does not expect the release this year of the new Xbox. According to the source it looks like Microsoft is having trouble getting the Blu-ray license for the new reader installed on your console, and this caused a delay in the time to market. It is not clear yet whether such incidents are related solely to the European market or if it is a problem globally.
The fact that a simple licensing problem to postpone a major launch of a new console there seems frankly very strange, but this adds to recent rumors that Microsoft would be delayed by six months on developing games for the console, so slippage, if confirmed, could also have other justifications.
As always, we invite you to take this rumor with extreme caution: hopefully during the May 21 event Microsoft could finally shed light on everything.

We've heard from other sources that Microsoft is not where they want to be at this point in the pre-launch development of Durango. A reliable source—one who was not part of our reporting about the Respawn game—tells us that Microsoft is as much as six months behind in producing content for the new console, despite an expected late-2013 launch. Another tells us that Microsoft recently cancelled several internal next-gen projects because they were not coming together as hoped. These sources have told us that, comparatively, Sony is in better shape and further along with hardware and software development for PlayStation 4.
We'd also heard from an industry insider that Microsoft was aggressively trying to sign exclusive games for Durango. Given the lack of internal development at Microsoft—their internal studios, while talented, are outnumbered by those of Sony and Nintendo—and given some of the apparent recent stumbles and slowdowns internally, signing an exclusive Respawn-EA game would suit the Durango quite well.

Microsoft's successor to the Xbox 360 appears to be called Xbox Infinity, according to a report by The International Business Times.
"Sources have now revealed the console will be named Infinity and
that development kits are already in the hands of studios," read the
report. This corroborates a recently leaked logo on Reddit, shown below.
Elsewhere in the rumour mill, Microsoft remains "uncertain" about its previously rumoured "Xbox TV" video-streaming set top box, according to a report at the Wall Street Journal (via VG247).
The report noted that Microsoft is still testing this side-project, and
afraid that it might cannibalise its console sales or otherwise not
stand out in a competitive market. Last we checked, this Xbox TV project
was planned for a launch next year after the new console.
Of course Microsoft still maintains that it "does not comment on
rumour and speculation," so we won't know any of this for sure until the
new console's unveiling on 21st May.
