According to this Kotaku piece, this month’s EGM is rumouring that Microsoft is considering allowing third-parties to make hardware that will play Xbox 360 games.

All sounds a bit “Pace” to us. From the mag:

We’ll tell you what’s up with Microsoft: new hardware options. It may sound totally insane — trust us, we did a double-take the first time Qmann whispered it in our ears — but word has it that Microsoft may begin allowing third-party manufacturers to create Xbox 360 hardware. And we’re not talking about peripherals, people; we mean hardware that runs 360 game discs created by someone other than Microsoft.
