On his blog ilike. code, under the title `Stupid, Stupid xBox', Brown said that `the past 5 years, and the last year in particular, have been simply painful to watch.'

According to the Daily Mail, the attack came after it emerged that Microsoft are likely to announce their Xbox 360 successor, codenamed Durango, at E3 in Los Angeles in June this year.

He also cited two `critical problems' with the Xbox 360, blasting Microsoft's membership model and the console's operating system, the paper asid.
