Microsoft has recently stated to Eurogamer that they’re not interested in creating another Xbox and would rather focus on the Xbox 360 and improving its overall functionality and exploitation of functions like Kinect and Netflix/Facebook/ect.
“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.” said a Microsoft representative, Steven McGill.
A nice thought, but having to purchase add-ons for the Xbox360 such as the Kinect really nullifies any excitement this may have had on me. Microsoft will continue to sponge off the gaming community for years to come. Enjoy!
