Don't Expect a New Xbox So Soon
Nintendo has unveiled a new system. Sony says the PlayStation 3 is here to stay for the next few years. Where do Microsoft and the Xbox 360 fall?
A lot of people have speculated that the manufacturer would unveil a new console at the next E3, or possibly the one after that. According to Microsoft, however, that's not exactly the case. In an interview with MCV, the Xbox 360 maker stated that the system was barely halfway through its expected lifespan.
"We see it as about halfway through," said Microsoft's Chris Lewis of the Xbox 360's life. "But yes, you are right, Xbox is defying the normal curve you might expect. There's no doubt that Kinect put a huge shot of adrenaline into the business."
I'm glad to see the current generation of consoles lasting so long. Their horsepower and tech are obviously powerful enough. Let's hope the next handful of years provide us with even more stellar titles on the Xbox 360.
