Sony's gaming division is tracking the growing rumours of a new Microsoft console, with the aim being to release its PlayStation4 as near to it as possible -- so there won't be a huge headstart for Microsoft this time around.
Someone with apparent links to Microsoft's gaming division has made some big claims about its follow up to the Xbox 360, claiming it'll be called the Xbox Loop and is a small, cheap thing with loads of Kinect functionality. Great.
Rumours have it Microsoft is making content deals for Xbox Live, with LoveFilm specifically on the cards. With the PS3 packing LoveFilm, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and 4oD, the Xbox could certainly do with a content boost in the UK. [Bloomberg via TechRadar]
