    See, i told you. When they said "natal does not need a new console", that doesn't mean there won't be one.

    My Xbox isn't central to the TV either above or below it, how could this possibly work if the Natal 'controller is housed in the console on the floor?

    I think this is a bit misleading, I thought what they had denied was a new 'nexgen' Xbox, like the Xbox 3 basically?

    Saying there's going to be an updated 360 isn't really confirming a new Xbox for 2010 in the way it's written anyway.

    Of course there will be a new xbox, it will be a 160GB and be a different colour. Nothing else will have changed.

    A built-in camera doesn't make any sense. He probably means a bundle of console and camera.

    It will just be a new SKU with the Natal controller bundled with it, and maybe a bigger HDD.

    If you read what they have stated carefully, they have never actually denied there was a new xbox coming, only that natal would work with the 360.

    As for "built in" natal. That doesn't necessarily mean built into the actual console, because that would be incredibly retarded, why they probably mean is that a natal camera is standard with every one of these new xboxes.

    The title is misleading. They didn't confirm a new Xbox, only a new Xbox 360.

    I think it would be a bad idea to put the natal stuff built into a console as some people may not be able to set it up to be in front of them, they may not have the space for it. So the add-on with a cable sound to be a better idea

    For some reason, ever since the dawn of the 360, I've always wanted an Xbox 180..

    There's a new Xbox bundle on the way, fits both answers.

    Natal bundled with a 360? Sounds like what they're saying.

    Xbox 3/720/whatever won't come out before 2011/2012 Christmas time I'd guess. If anyone asked me, that is... :)

    What would make the most sense in my opinion would be a Xbox 360 with decent sized HDD, proper cooling and Natal bundled.

    If they meant the Xbox 720 (lack of a better name) then of course they are going to jump up and scream NO NO NO! If everyone knew a new-gen Xbox was coming out, the adoption rate of the 360 would plummet. (For example, I've been wanting to get one for about 2 years, but would hold off a bit longer if I thought the 720 was due out in short order.) It'd be a kick to the crotch for Sony though.

    If they meant a new version of the Xbox 360 (New color / bundle / this Natal-Wii-clone-thing) Then I don't see the big deal. We could hope that they are finally bundling BluRay with it. If they'd do that I'm sure they could sway some fence-sitters on which console to buy. ("I like the games on the 360, but the PS3 is more future-proof with BluRay") The one good thing about pushing a new base-bundle out would be it might knock the current 360-Pro down to the Arcade pricing level (and obsolete / end the sales of the Arcade). It'd finally be wihtin my reach to buy one.

    They won't be bundling the 360 with a Blu Ray drive. Not now, not ever. MS are about as far into the digital downloads camp as they can be.

    Besides, there is no such thing as a future proof console. Even when they were announced, there were more powerful things about. Or very shortly afterwards at least. Blu Ray isn't even future proof, since no one knows how long itis going to last, especially since adoption is still no where near that of DVD. And with dedicated Blu Ray players available for around the £150 mark, the PS3 is no longer also the cheapest player.

    Just a thought... Natal senses movement, which means that if they integrate Natal in the Xbox there will be plenty of movement around...

    Has nobody else thought of the disc scratch problem?
