Everyone is beginning to accept that the Xbox 360 is heading towards the final years of its life cycle however Microsoft still remains tight lipped about the console’s successor.

Chris Lewis, Vice President Of Interactive Entertainment Business for Microsoft had a few things to say about the new console to Eurogamer;

“I would only say it’s too long if things are stagnating. If developers are finding they’re bumping their heads against the glass ceiling of development scope, if we weren’t bringing revolutionary technology like Kinect, if we weren’t able to, frankly, completely update the UI of Xbox Live without predicating that on people buying new hardware, were those things not true I might be more in agreement with your assessment.”

“I actually don’t think it’s too long if the experience continues to grow, if people continue to flock to it and they feel like they’re getting great value. That is everything we’re experiencing right now. That’s how I’d answer that.”

“I’m being charged with more growth this year versus next year. Sure, I chew the back of my hand a little bit when I think about what that means. We had a very good year last year. But, I do also believe there is sufficient in what’s coming and exists right now for that to be a very realistic ambition. We’re not talking about any additional or new generations of hardware at the moment. We’re fixated on what we’ve got going on right now.”

So it would appear that as long as Kinect is still going strong then Microsoft are happy to continue supporting this current generation.
