Xbox Top Rumors About Microsoft's Next XboxRumors are swirling that Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) will announce the next-gen Xbox at a May 21 event.

Code-named “Durango,” Thurrott says the system will cost $500 for the standard console and $300 for a subscription-based version.

Along with the new console, there are rumors that the Xbox 360 will be redesigned and sold as a $99 entertainment console to compete with Roku and other devices.
