Rumor: Next Xbox to be launched in 2015

Microsoft designer 'investigating user experiences and hardware for 2015'

The description alongside the image reads: "Confidential / Collaboration with Microsoft's IEB design group investigating future user experiences and hardware for 2015. *Work samples only permissible in person.* (March 2011)"

IEB, by the way, stands for "Interactive Entertainment Business." 2015 seems like a likely release date for the system, as it would satisfy Microsoft's planned 10-year lifespan for the 360. Considering that four years ago, in 2007, now-ubiquitous HDTVs and iPhones were the Big Deal, we've got no idea what kind of power a 2015 console will exhibit. We look forward to seeing more butterfly tech demos and the like.
