Microsoft is putting all their eggs in Kinect's basket... for now.



Traditionally, new home consoles release every 5 years or so. That would make it high time for a new Xbox. However, this generation of consoles is going to be slightly different, and instead of new consoles being released, console manufacturers Sony and Microsoft plan to extend the life of their existing offerings with new ways to play.

In a recent interview, Microsoft's Xbox & Entertainment Direct, Stephen McGill discussed the future of the Xbox brand, and how there are currently "no plans" to bring another Xbox to the market.

"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."

Despite executives firmly denying that new consoles are being planned, the amount of research and development time it takes to conceptualize and produce a new console, means next gen iterations of the Xbox and PlayStation are more than likely in the works already.

When do you think the big 3 will announce new consoles?
