Microsoft Says Plenty of Life Left in Xbox 360

Techstination feature for Monday, June 28, 2010

Microsoft says there's plenty of life left in the Xbox 360. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. The Xbox 360 will turn five years old later this year. But instead of talking about building a brand new game console, Microsoft is out with a redesign. Senior product manager David Hufford...

"It's got a new, shiny black finish to it. We've doubled the storage space to 250 gigabytes of storage. And we've added WiFi into the box."

And this fall, Microsoft will release Kinect, which will let game players use their bodies and voice to control specially designed games. So where are we in the life cycle of Xbox 360.;..

"The Xbox 360 is really not even half way through its life cycle."

That would give it at least another five years. Of course, that may depend on what the competition does. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
