Xbox One rumours were ten-a-penny last week, thanks to an anonymous tipster who is apparently now being pursued legally by Microsoft. One such claim was that the company is preparing to unveil a new, cheaper Xbox One model or price-cut on the existing model. Chief of Staff Aaron Greenberg has debunked the rumours.

    Maybe the fact that people get interested in it might give you pause to make something happen?
    or better yet, just make a Sku without the Kinect already.
