Default Xbox 360 2 In Development?

Listings on professional social-networking site Linkedin.com suggest that Microsoft may be hiring people to work on the next generation Microsoft console.

According to the ads, Microsoft would like to fill these three positions:

The ideal candidate should have a broad background in 3D graphics rendering architectures and algorithms (ideally with gaming applications in mind), 3D software pipelines, and physics. The candidate should also have a solid understanding of graphics hardware implementation, including design methodologies and production yield and cost analysis. The successful candidate is expected to have a working knowledge of how state-of-the-art PC and/or console OS, driver and application code is designed and how it interacts with graphics HW/firmware. The ideal candidate will have been the lead architect and/or implementation lead of a 3D graphics core. The candidate must have taken designs from investigation to end-customer shipment during their career."

Senior Architect and Performance Engineer in XBOX Console Architecture Group -- "Initial Responsibilities - Development of system C models for performance and design verification - Pre-silicon performance and functional validation at the block, chip and system level - Algorithm mapping to verify performance for specified workloads."

Senior Hardware Verification Engineer -- "Do you have a passion for leading edge technology? Are you fascinated by the video game industry and Xbox 360? Come join a dynamic engineering team and play a key role in the development and verification of the Xbox and future platforms. We are looking for an experienced Senior Hardware Design/Verification Engineer. You will be responsible for the design verification and qualification of the Xbox console at the component, motherboard, and system levels. You will lead test strategy discussions, develop test methodologies & plans and project-manage qualification cycles"

Obviously, at this early stage, there is no verified information at all. We have no projected release date, price or name for the theoretical device -- it might not even exist.
But it's not too early to speculate: Any features you'd like to see implemented? Any suggestions for names for a potential next-gen Xbox?

It should play white ray discs and have a feature that toasts your bread.
And the holographic video game technology is a given. Everything has to be wireless and retardedly fast. No loading screens.

They're planning on making the 360 last to 2015 or later.

This actually makes more sense than anything else. Not sure most people will get the reference to the 1080p video but still.

I get it now. Whenever I see a number that's a multiple of 180, the first thing I think about is tricks in any Tonk Hawk video game series that includes a revolution.

Makiba (Oni get! ), Colorful Course, Pure Ruby, and Melonman's OP (although the game seems to think otherwise about the last one)

Wow, I thought I was the only one lolol

Xbox should definitely keep the same style name, it's working out fine already. But of course, it'll probably make a new name that people will criticize at first, and then accept after a couple of months.

Kind of like the Wii. I still think Nintendo Revolution would've been fine.
