There has been a lot of talk about the next generation of consoles over the last 2 months. When you look back on console life spans, we are getting pretty close to where the next generation of consoles would be announced and released soon after. Well according to a recent interview, Microsoft might just have other plans.
Usually consoles have a 5 to 7 year life span, by which time they have recouped their costs and made some extra money to bank. As most consoles sell at a loss when launched, the years long life cycle is there to make sure the research and development dollars investment are returned to profit. But as the years go on, the CPU’s and GPU’s in them begin to show their age and the next revision comes along.
Speaking to Gamespot in a recent interview, Microsoft has said that they believe there is still 2 years life in the xbox 360 yet. While this isnt a confirmation that the “xbox720″ wont come out before then, it does show that they aren’t exactly in a rush to stop the cash cow just yet.
“It’s a platform that has really reached scale; this is the time when you really see the great content showing up. The future in a lot of ways is always tomorrow: [things like] the SmartGlass technology and Windows 8 [show that] things are going to constantly evolve. The world where everything gets centered around one console and when that comes out–we kind of have to evolve away from just thinking about that, [especially] with the service-based nature of games today. Right now the Xbox 360 is really healthy and it’s doing incredibly well. I think the 360 has a lot more than two years [left]. It has legs for a long time.”
