He or, of course, she or it added, “It will be an ARM-based platform price-competitive with the Apple TV (if you own a Kinect already).”

He then lays out the groundwork for the 'Xbox Next' with, At some point after that, we’ll see a Xbox Next, a true successor to the 360.

"Details about it are very hazy, except that, like the 360, it will do games for core-audiences & the same media apps as the other device, also with Kinect.”

BGR also reports him saying that, "the Kinect controller will likely receive a camera upgrade after the Xbox 360′s successor launches, and a new Kinect may debut around 2015."
