Microsoft Considers Slimmed Down Xbox One to Rival Apple TV

Microsoft is considering the release of a slimmed down Xbox One to rival the new Apple TV, reports Brad Sams at Petri IT Knowledgebase.I have heard from internal sources that the company is considering plans for a lightweight Xbox One that may only be for Windows store games and would compete with the Apple TV, but it’s not clear if these plans have been scrapped. A similar device was rumored around the initial Xbox One launch and those plans were put on hold but this device is said to be from a similar vein. If this device does materialize, it will not launch until the second half of the year and have a much lower price-point than the Xbox One.The move seems logical as the new Apple TV has generated a lot of excitement among developers and customers. It’s cheaper, smaller, and can now run variety of games and applications.
