UPDATE - Multiple sources are claiming that this supposed insider information is 100% false.
Thanks to all that sent this in!

Well, if this rumor is to be believed, Nintendo could be in for a rough battle come E3. According to an inside source, Microsoft has already sent out a very early dev kit for the 360 successor to EA. Obviously, EA and Microsoft aren’t confirming this. This same source believes that a launch by 2012’s end is possible, with initial details revealed at this year’s E3. Why the sudden rumors of Microsoft’s next-gene system?

“Why let Nintendo steal the thunder in June [At E3]? It doesn’t want to lose momentum. That’s why I think Microsoft is rushing to make an announcement at E3.” - inside source

Thanks to OptimusKoopa for the heads up!
