A couple of days ago, it was suggested that Microsoft may have hinted at the next-gen Xbox gaming console. The words they used seem to suggest it, but this was denied by Microsoft. However thanks to job listings on Microsoft’s website, it seems that some details of the console and a possible launch time have been revealed. For starters according to a UI Designer/Prototyper listing, Skype appears to be part of the new Xbox.
“The team you’ll join is responsible for Skype in the living room (broadly the home), across various devices but with a focus on the large screen and the next generation of Xbox,”
Next up is the call for someone in the marketing role and basically outlined some of Microsoft’s upcoming products, stating that “Over the next eighteen months Microsoft will release new versions of all of our most significant products including Windows (Client, Server, Phone and Azure), Office and Xbox, along with completely new offerings like Microsoft Surface.”
What do you guys think? Could this “new version” of the Xbox really be unveiled in the next 18 months, or will Microsoft still be sticking to their line of how the Xbox “defied lifecycle conventions,” as a definition of “new”?
