I’m gonna guess they just canceled the current gen versions. We don’t have anything in the system for pre-ordering next gen stuff and probably won’t till E3 or after the Xbox event at the earliest. I will only be alarmed if E3 goes by and they don’t say or show anything about it.
I’m gonna guess that games won’t have a HUGE presence at the reveal. Their anouncement said to check out the games for it on June 11th. I’m guessing the big stuff will be then with more of a focus on the features and why we should want them at the reveal.
