Microsoft has denied that it will be launching a new version of its Xbox console sometime next year. Various pundits had got themselves excited after Steve Ballmer appeared to say that there was a new console on its way during a speech.

Turns out, that's not the case, as Microsoft's Major Nelson pointed out in a blog post:  "We are not even halfway through the current console generation lifecycle and believe Xbox 360 will be the entertainment center in the home for long into the next decade."

But, because there's never enough rumours, everyone is now speculating that what Ballmer really meant, was that Project Natal will be available next year, probably as a bundle with Xbox 360, despite Microsoft staying tight-lipped about delivery for its new motion sensing control system.
