Quote :

Microsoft's UK Xbox chief Stephen McGill has confirmed that the manufacturer currently has no plans for a new console

"We've no plans for another Xbox," McGill said in an interview with EuroGamer. "You'll continue to see us bring amazing new experiences to the console, without you having to buy a brand new console. A couple of years ago we didn't have movies, Sky, Facebook and Twitter - now we've got things like Kinect."

Kinect launched in the UK today, and is being positioned by Microsoft as a completely new platform.
"We'll continue to evolve those gaming and entertainment experiences through the power of software updates, rather than new chipsets and plastic," added McGill.

Responding to comments made by Microsoft Exec Aaron Greenberg predicting the next Xbox in five years, McGill said: "I'm not sure what the timeframe is. There's a long long way to go with the experiences people deliver on this platform - we're just beginning to scratch the surface.

“We've no plans for another Xbox”

"Obviously we've got this brand new experience platform with Kinect. The launch games and experiences are pretty phenomenal but it's a gateway to unlock a lot of amazing ideas for developers. So there's a long way to go."

Earlier this year, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida predicted that Microsoft would beat Sony in releasing a new console.

Yay! I don't need to pay another $300 for a long long time!

Cool. As long as they keep bringing in the core games, I'll be satisfied.

I think the next xbox won't use optical media for it's games,download only, even more of a reason I need my lazy ISP to get DSL out here.

http://www.examiner.com/video-game-community-in-boston/will-nextbox-720-be-download-only

If this is true than I hope we can use our own drives, SSD are sure to drop in price by then so imagine running games faster than anyone else online if they're using a HDD.

I know, just want to see what it's like to run a game off of something that can read and write at 150MB/s

I highly doubt the next gen of consoles will be download only. Sony have already said Blu-ray is their future format if or when the release a new console. I can't see MS going download only with the "PS4" using disc format. It would be madness as I for one wouldn't be buying a download only console.

Ok but say we already have lines that download at 1GB/s all around the world, would you like to see more download only systems or is it just that you like having the hard copy in your hands.

I hope another xbox isn't released. Tbh even if there were another released soon, I wouldn't get it for another 2 or 3 years or whatever. I'm happy with my current Xbox and if games keep coming to it, I'll be perfectly content to stick with it for perhaps as much as another 4 or 5 years. Though I'll have to wait and see.

It does feel like a new console is going to be shown by next year or early 2012.

I have that feeling too, but it doesn't seem to correct thing to do. Because Microsoft will need to support Kinect, the old Xbox 360, which, remember, just had a new facelift, and the new Xbox.

And game developers also will need to develop games for both the Xbox 360 and the new Xbox, just like Call of Duty 2 and 3 for the Xbox and Xbox 360, because the PS4 still wouldn't be on the market at that time. And that all just seems a little bit chaotic.

kinect is an accessory though. Also ps2 slim came late 2004 and early 2005 we found out about the ps3. 360 s is still an xbox 360,changing the look slightly is not anything drastic.

But PS2 Slim did not add any new features to the PS2 itself. The Xbox 360S on the other hand does, so if they will be announcing a new Xbox in next year, or early 2012, and release it the year after, then that doesn't seem smart. The Kinect would have been only on the market for about 2/3 years, and it would only be compatible with the old Xbox 360, so they'll need to support the Xbox 360 for a longer time.

Making them concentrate on two consoles rather then one.

ps2 slim had a built in modem.360 s just has built in wifi,that existed already on 360 just that its put together just like sony did with ps2. it's still an xbox 360,dont get me wrong i would rather have 2-3 more years with 360 but we will have to see i guess. also i think MS will support 360 even when the other system is out.
