Ballmer was talking about Natal, says MS

"There will be no new console" after all. 

Microsoft exec Aaron Greenberg has clarified comments by Steve Ballmer regarding the release of a new Xbox 360 in 2010.

"There will be no new console," Greenberg told Kotaku.

"We're not going to be launching a new console any time soon. I really believe he was speaking about Project Natal... We're barely halfway through this generation. We're happy with the Xbox 360, so there are no changes from that standpoint."

That said, Greenberg did confirm Microsoft has "looked at" integrating the Natal tech with new hardware. "But we haven't announced any details for something like that," he added. "We are saying that the Natal will run on the Xbox 360, so there's no new hardware to purchase."
