We’ll see a new MS console before the apocalypse

The words are in from the horse’s mouth, with the equine specimen in this case being played by gaming industry specialist, Michael Pachter: “In order to succeed at its original vision, Microsoft probably has to sell us a new SKU…”

Drum roll, please.

“…this will come with the next version of the Xbox 360, which I expect to launch with Project Natal, likely at year-end 2010 or early 2011.”

There it is folks, it seems that we could all be loosening our grip on the money hose and splashing out new consoles as early as next year. Personally, I don’t see the hurry, apart from being on console #8, my gaming life is chugging along quite happily. Here’s hoping that I don’t have to shell out too soon.

Sam Finch

Sam has been unable to peel his bloodshot eyes and RSI-ridden wrists from the world of gaming since he was first introduced to it, like all good junkies, by his Grandad. From those early days of MegaDrive sweetness, bashing through the throngs of enemies on Shining Force II, his love of all things games has extended upwards and outwards onto a variety of platforms. You can either believe that spiel, or get the real scoop and know that his spaceship actually crashed here some years ago and he is currently incognito as a games writer for Console Monster.
