Eurogamer has been chatting to one of the all powerful Microsoft execs, Phil Spencer, who has come out and stated that consumers don’t want another Xbox machine at the moment and Microsoft have no immediate plans to release one.
Rather they are treating the release of Natal as a new console launch and he thinks consumers are going to be happy with that.
And you know what? He’s right. While there are a lot complaints about the 360’s unreliability or the fact that we have to pay for Live I am yet to hear anyone complain about the technical limitations of the Xbox 360.
The games are getting better all the time and according to Phil the Xbox 360 hasn’t even peaked yet which I guess means we are looking at another 4 years of Xbox 360’s to come.
I would never have guessed that the 360 would have such long legs but I can honestly say that I am happy to stay with the 360 now until they have something truly awesome to replace it with technology that we haven’t even seen yet.
In the same vein I think you can replace 360 with PS3 in this article and the sentiment stays the same. The Wii could however do with a few more horses under the hood.
