We've already heard rumors about Sony cooking up a more powerful "PlayStation 4.5" console and now Kotaku claims Microsoft has similar plans for its Xbox One.
First up is a cheaper, smaller Xbox One console. This model is expected to be launched this year and one source claims it may have a 2TB HDD, double as much as the current top model. More details are expected at the E3 show in June.
Then there's the 2017 Xbox, which is reportedly codenamed Scorpio. This new Xbox console has a more powerful GPU and will reportedly support the Oculus Rift VR headset and some form of 4K gaming.
Going forward, Microsoft is keen on switching the Xbox to an "Apple-like model" of yearly iterations. Instead of doing a console hardware revision every five years or so, the software giant plans to evolve towards an incremental model, with more frequent hardware releases. This introduces new problems but apparently Microsoft wants to move to a PC-like evolution for its Xbox, with games that are both forwards and backwards compatible across both the Windows 10 ecosystem and different Xbox models.
