CES has brought out quite a bit of news, for subjects across the tech industry. The future of the Xbox 360 seems to a subject Microsoft can't talk enough about. Gates' keynote
touched on new media partnerships for Live Marketplace, like the collaboration with Disney/ABC
. A post-keynote email to several games writers noted that 2008 will be the company's year to capitalize on strong hardware and software sales
from the holiday season, and that several as-yet-unannounced exclusive 360 titles are in the works. Fans of the platform might still have some anxiety this year; a rumour on the 1up site indicates Microsoft is already working on a game for the next-next-gen console
to bear the Xbox name.
