Sources say Microsoft plans to invest billions to develop a video game machine, part of a bid to wrest control of the console market from Sony.
Microsoft’s 4-year development project is aimed at creating a living room device code-named X-Box.
Whether X-Box would be marketed by the software company under its own brand name, that of manufacturing partners or both, isn’t clear.
The device is expected to sell for about $299. A complete story is posted at www.zdnn.com.
