Gadgehit reports this rumor, or rather states the potential of it as being up in the air who will be making Microsoft’s next console. They feel a Microsoft branded, third-party home console will be somehow wrapped up in the future of the Xbox experience.
After pointing to the RROD (Red Ring of Death) which has plagued many Xbox 360 consoles at launch and even merits mentioning to this day, Gadgehit proceeds to discuss the fact that Microsoft has already begun a deal with Samsung to have such an arrangement take place with the Microsoft Surface 2.
