Report: Future of Rumored Xbox TV in Question

A source speaking to The Wall Street Journal today tells the publication that Microsoft's long-rumored "Xbox TV" set-top streaming device is struggling, with Microsoft not sure how or if it will move forward with the device.

The unnamed sources claims that the device has gone through several redesigns – including a recent design that integrated the Kinect – but Microsoft is not satisfied with it.

Talk of the Xbox TV device began last year when unnamed sources leaked information on an Xbox-branded set-top box would be released in 2013 running on a modified version of Windows 8. Those rumors claimed that Microsoft's device would be a low cost" alternative to the next Xbox and would support casual games, but not "full" Xbox titles.

Microsoft's next Xbox, which most are calling Xbox 720 (a new rumor today said it might be called Infinity), will be revealed at a press event at the company's headquarters in Redmond, Washington on May 21. The event will be streamed live through, Xbox Live, and on Spike TV in the United States and Canada.
