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.
