Microsoft plans to offer retail Xbox Ones as devkits “not there yet”
Microsoft has responded to indications that they had ditched their plans to offer the Xbox One retail units as development kits.
Senior engineer in the Advanced Technology Group for Xbox, Martin Fuller had stated this week that Microsoft will not be offering the Xbox One retail units as devkits. He said, "In the end, although that was a very admirable goal, it hasn't happened unfortunately. Can't tell you the specifics of exactly why not."
Now Microsoft has indicated that Fuller's comments were not correct. They said in a statement, "The comments today were inaccurate. We remain committed to ensuring the best possible solutions for developers and hobbyists to create games for Xbox One. We will share more details at a later date."
ID@Xbox boss Chris Chara added on the matter in a panel at develop this week, "We're not there yet."
