The Dallas Morning News on Saturday, January 5, by Victor Godinez:
"Who's ready to start talking about the next Xbox?
Yeah, I know, it sounds idiotic – didn't the 360 just come out? But one glance at a calendar suggests it won't be long before we start hearing all sorts of tidbits about the Xbox 720.
After all, the original Xbox came out in the fall of 2001.
The Xbox 360 was released in 2005.
Repeating that four-year lifespan, the 720 (or whatever it ends up being called) should come out, um, let's see, next year!"
Godinez explains why Microsoft will rush out a successor console ahead of everyone else - the Wii factor!
