Good. I hope it stays that way too. It'd be stupid for a console to be released so soon when the full potential probably isn't even shown yet...

It says nothing about a new console. They are talking about redesigning the currecnt 360 since the rumor is that the CPU and GPU will all be shrunk down to fit on one die...

It would be videogame suicide for Microsoft to even think about releasing a new console till the end of 2010 at least. They have to give this current console generation at least 5 years and if they are smart even when the new console does release they need to keep supporting the 360 with games...

Thats right ladies and gentleman, they will be announcing the next X Box and will probably stop production of the X Box 360 in 2009! Lots of 360 owners will be ANGRY!

Being destroyed by the PS3 day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, generation after generation.

They dont plan that far ahead. That started making the 360 in summer 2005 after all...
