Microsoft says next Xbox still distant

The
original Xbox lasted only four years in the market before its next-gen
sibling arrived, but it looks like the Xbox 360 is going to be around a
bit longer than that. At least according to Microsoft’s Entertainment
and Devices president Robbie Bach, who claims the company will focus on
improving the Xbox’s games and features rather than rushing to
introduce a new model.

Microsoft appears to be eyeing a page
in Nintendo’s playbook, whose insanely successful Wii console almost
devalued technological horsepower in favor of innovative controls and
mass-market appeal. It’s evident that the next generation of consoles
will have to do more than simply push pixels. Of course, Bach also
notes that the current global economic crisis would make it all the
more difficult to convince users to upgrade their game consoles,
especially with the quality of graphics on today’s consoles.

Part
of the decision could also be attributed to the explosion of Xbox Live,
the general trend toward multiplayer online games and digital
distribution on the rise. But most importantly, Microsoft seems to have
finally gotten its gaming business to the point where it is actually
turning a profit, so to rush the beginning of the next cycle would
certainly make no sense.

大意:
xbox一代只活跃了四年。但微软的娱乐及器材主席说,xbox 360的生命力会更长,微软并不急于推出新型号,但会着力于提升360的游戏及功能体验。

任天堂的疯卖证明了,次世代不是提升一下分辨率就可以成功的,微软也当然注意到这点。在金融危机下,现在恐怕很难说服玩家在现在的画质基础上再花钱升级机器。

Xbox Live也是一个让微软不愿意立刻推陈出新的原因,在线多人游戏和在线数字发售的形式已是大势所趋。更重要的是,微软的游戏事业似乎终于开始盈利,急于又进入一个新的循环显然不明智。
