Default Time Table for Next Xbox?

With the format war over, its not long before the 360 is seen as out dated. I know some will argue its a game machine first, but remember that Bill Gates himself promoted the 360 as the center on the modern day entertainment center. That being said, has there been any official word on when to expect the next Xbox? What about any industry rumors?

2010 or so is likely... I believe Microsoft has said sometime around 2012, but chances of MS letting the system live more than 5 years is relatively slim unless they pull a PS2 and actually continue to support it in death unlike the bullshit they pulled with the original XBox where they killed it as quickly as possible.

I guess 2010 would be about right since the current machine was released in Nov of 2005. That would give it a 5 year life span.

Blu-ray adoption is slow, but if it becomes main stream it will prompt MS to release their new machine earlier. I'm in no immediate hurry, but always welcome improvement.
