Microsoft's UK director of Xbox and Entertainment, Stephen McGill, has apparently put the sword to any further iterations of the Xbox.
Speaking at the UK launch of Kinect, Mr McGill stated, "We've no plans for another Xbox. You'll continue to see us bring amazing new experiences to the console, without you having to buy a brand new console. A couple of years ago we didn't have movies, Sky, Facebook and Twitter - now we've got things like Kinect.
We'll continue to evolve those gaming and entertainment experiences through the power of software updates, rather than new chipsets and plastic."
It was fun while it lasted.
