    On the latest Windows Weekly podcast, a rumour was mentioned claiming that the next Xbox will be announced on CES 2012. Some other rumoured details about the next-gen console mentioned in the podcast are shown below,

    - Codenamed TEN, is all about Metro, embedded Silverlight and an Apple-like integration with Windows and Windows Phone

    - The dashboard preview is supposedly this week (tomorrow?) and will include the Bing search integration, Live TV hooks and more

    While the credibility of this source is dubious, it is worth noting that the host of this podcast, Paul Thurrott is known for being well-versed in aspects concerning Microsoft. We'll find out whether this is true or not at CES 2012, which starts in two months.

    Funny, on Kotaku it says the codename is "Loop".

    Dreamland.
    By way of google, most news sites have Loop as the code name, though some also have Ten as well.

    Yeah, it doesn't mean they won't bring out a new console? They'll just continue to support it..

    They better still support it. With all the 360s RRinging left and right, how are we gonna play 360 games in 5 years?

    I would be happy if the next console could play all xbox originals and 360 originals. As well as install them without needing the disc.

    Considering this is just "codename" stuff, the product could potentially be released in another 4 years, thus making the 360s lifespan 10 years.

    i wonder how many rings they've allocated this time... more rings to go red?

    seriously, i've never gotten the point of making an expensive hardware that fries itself... sure, it has pretty games, but man, the meltdowns are ridiculous.

    if they finally figured out how to not make their hardware melt like wax, maybe i'll be able to consider this iteration of the Xbox as feasible.

    Sure, announced at CES 2012. Meanwhile Wii U is launching in 2012. It'll have a lead.

    And anyway it's not like the Wii needed to be released before the PS3 and 360 to succeed.

    That will never happen for copyright reasons. If it didn't need the disc, you'd be able to install the game to hard-drive then trade the game in. Or rent a game from Blockbuster GameFly or RedBox and install it and keep it forever. It'll never happen.
