Microsoft and Blizzard Discussing Next Xbox Console

While analyst Michael Pachter claimed earlier this week that this round of consoles will be the last one, Blizzard's Rob Pardo revealed at GDC's Luminaries Lunch that they are in contact with Microsoft and having preliminary discussions about the next Xbox console. The main talking points seem to be the input device and ways of making it easier for users to interact with games, particularly MMOs and RTS titles. It's one of the reasons Blizzard is not currently supporting consoles.
