Microsoft to allow other companies Xbox 360 consoles?
This is one you probably didn’t see coming–I know I didn’t. According to a rumor at EGM, Microsoft is considering allowing other companies to built Xbox 360 consoles.
Yep, that means you could potentially see a combo Blu-ray player/Xbox 360 console produced by, say, Samsung, Toshiba, etc.
Microsoft is also said to be considering releasing Xbox 360-compatible drives for PCs.
If this is going to be announced I would expect to see it no sooner than the week before E3 opens on July 15th.
