As Microsoft inches closer to unveiling the next-generation Xbox (widely believed to be named Xbox 360), new details about the console are appearing at a rapid pace. The latest Xbox information floating around the Internet involves pictures of what's reportedly the next Xbox. Several game developers have confirmed that the pictures—one of which is from OurColony.net, Microsoft's viral marketing site for the next Xbox—are the real deal, according to several gaming-industry Web sites. The design appears to be much smaller than that of the original Xbox, but it looks relativity plain. Lack of noticeable ports for controllers also seems to confirm that the new console will include wireless controllers, by default. The console, which Microsoft will unveil on MTV next month, is expected to debut with 15 to 20 game titles this fall, followed by new waves of games every few weeks following the launch. Stay tuned for more details.
