A whole host of Xbox One leaks have been posted on NeoGAF today by a user called ntkrnl who apparently checks out as a reliable source. Nonetheless, consider the following all rumours until officially confirmed by Microsoft. Below is a round-up of the major leaks:

 

Xbox One Console News

Xbox One looks set to get a $100 price cut this year.

A white Xbox One release is planned.

A limited edition 1TB Xbox One is also planned.

It's possible that an Xbox One "without an Optical Disc Drive" will be released.

A Limited Edition Titanfall bundle is planned (and has been confirmed - see image below)

Halo News

Halo 2: Anniversary Edition is in the works for Xbox One and is due for release on November 11th. It will be in 1080p resolution and will include Beta access to Halo 5, which has now been pushed back to a 2015 release.

Halo 3 and Halo 4 will both get Xbox One ports as part of a 'War Collection' edition of Halo 2: Anniversary.

There are two separate live action Halo television shows.

Sequels

Crackdown 3 is planned, but is unlikely to be released until 2016,  so don't expect any news about it this coming E3.

Forza Horizon 2 is planned for a release later this year (likely sometime in November). As with the first game it will have an open world focus, and will include a host of co-op/social features. It is in 1080p.

Release Dates

Quantum Break is planned for this holiday.

Sunset Overdrive is also planned for a holiday 2014 release.

Fable Legends is due to release next summer.

Work has only just started on the next Gears of War title, so a release is not expected for another couple of years at least.

Platinum Games are working on an Xbox One title, codenamed Project Nagano. It is expected to release in 2016.
