Xbox One is currently enjoying larger sales compared to the gaming systems before it. However, the same could not be said when it is compared to the sales of its major competitor the PS4. Sony will reportedly release their PS4.5 console this year in September. Could the Xbox Two be released ahead of time so that Microsoft could get ahead?
