Road to E3 2011: The Microsoft Report Card

It's that time again; time to speculate about the next-gen Xbox. This time rumor has it the Xbox 720 will be released within the next 18 months, and it will support skype. These claims come courtesy of a few Microsoft job listings.

The first listing is no longer listed. Luckily, Digital Spy copied the information.

It says, "Over the next 18 months Microsoft will release new versions of all of our most significant products including Windows (Client, Server, Phone and Azure), Office and Xbox, along with completely new offerings like Microsoft Surface."

The second job listing is still active. This one seeks a, “UI designer & prototype for Skype” on “next gen Xbox and consumer devices.”

Microsoft recently clarified a quote from Microsoft manager, Brian Hall, that they claim was taken out of context. They reiterated Microsoft plans on launching a new update, not a console.

Do you think these rumors have any weight?
