Taiwan-based suppliers have received word from Microsoft to begin shipments of a new model in Q1 2014.
Digitimes writes, “Shipments of Xbox One from the manufacturing side began at one million units a month in the third quarter and monthly shipments have been increasing in the fourth quarter, the sources indicated.”
I don’t expect this model to be anything significant as the Xbox One just released and to healthy numbers worldwide as well. The new model could just be the current Xbox One that comes pre-installed with the day 1 update or a version with a larger hard drive. Only time will tell.
