The Wii's current situation shows the problem with actually waiting until sales drop significantly before you announce a successor console - it´s a bit of a gamble, because the exact timing of the dropoff is hard to estimate.
We´ll see which path MS takes, but I wouldn´t be surprised if the CES announcement rumors come true.
It´s important to remember that both MS and Sony will keep the 360 and PS3 in stores for a long time to come - the PS2 sold tens of millions after the PS3 launched. Especially with Kinect, Move, etc. it will be useful for them to have a bargain-basement entry level console that everyone can afford. The 720 and PS4 don´t mean the death of the 360 and PS3...
EDIT: "Running Windows 8" - I mean, they have Metro coming in the next dashboard update, and I doubt they would actually fork the 360 hardware at this point in the cycle.
