Microsoft have stated that they have "no plans for another Xbox," instead focussing their efforts on backing the recently released motion control sensor Kinect in elongating the Xbox 360′s life-cycle.
Such comments were made by Microsoft’s Xbox & Entertainment Director, Stephen McGill during an interview regarding the Kinect launch:
"We’ve no plans for another Xbox," McGill stated during 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.
"We’ll continue to evolve those gaming and entertainment experiences through the power of software updates, rather than new chipsets and plastic."
Such sentiment echoes that of the company’s refusal in acknowledging adopting Blu-ray as a sensible move, and stating that the life-cycle of its current Xbox 360 console is far from over. Elongated in part by the new Xbox 360 S model, and now the new Kinect peripheral.
Yet, they must be working on their next console… surely?
