New submitter rabok writes "If a Microsoft job posting can be believed, we are set to get a new Xbox on store shelves by March 2014 at the latest. Regardless of when it does eventually arrive, it seems an image claiming to be the output of a Kinect 2 has hit the web by a user on twitter. Kinect 2 is expected to be much more accurate — even able to see individual fingers, read lips, and gauge moods. This image seems to back up that improvement in both depth perception and the ability to distinguish individual fingers."

    "Xbox, Open the drive bay door!"

    "I'm afraid I cant do that Dave. You have violated the End User License Agreement, by using a copy of Wireshark to spy on my communications."

    "What are you talking about Xbox?" (discretely closes laptop....)

    "It is a violation of my user agreement to attempt to reverse engineer my protocols, Dave. Using an unsanctioned network protocol analysis tool has triggered my safeguards."

    "I just want to play Halo 4 Xbox! Please open the drive bay door!?"

    "I'm Sorry, Dave. I had to blacklist your Live account."
