However, stop me if I'm wrong, but it really sounds like they are going to be powered by AMD's next generation APU or something closely related. Any thoughts on this or speculation on what it means for the hardware and gaming industries if this is true?

I would not be surprised if we get a setup that will last for 10 years.

I hope they go the other way. Just call it an xbox and release an updated model ever year round November time frame. That way they can keep the cost down (say $200 or $99 with a Gold Subscription) and keep the console relevant. As long as the games work / upscale on the newer models, I don't see a problem.
