Upgraded Xbox 360 Confirmed for 2010 ... Or Not...

by Rainier on June 18, 2009 @ 5:09 p.m. PDT

Ever since Microsoft revealed Project Natal at E3, speculation has been running wild about a new Xbox being planned. 1UP claimed the new Xbox is Natal, while TeamXbox stated a new Xbox wouldn't be coming until full HD stereoscopic 3D TVs become more popular. However, during a presentation to the Executive's Club of Chicago, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled that an updated Xbox 360 will launch in 2010 with a natural interface thanks to a built-in camera and voice-recognition capabilities, possibly hinting at a built-in Natal. It was not revealed whether the new version would be beefed up with more RAM, a bigger HD, upgraded gfx and maybe even some more horsepower.

UPDATE: Major Nelson and Xbox boss Aaron Greenberg issued statements that this was just a misinterpretation of Ballmer's words, and claimed there will be no new X360 in 2010.
