A report by CNET.com has indicated that the next generation Xbox console will be arriving in 2013, citing unnamed sources. It’s far from an official confirmation, but as Brenna pointed out yesterday, a much better guess than 2012.
There’s also word today that the design lead on the Xbox 720 project has been swapped. According to CNET, Don Coyner (the past lead) has been replaced by Emma Williams who was part of the team that just revamped the Xbox dashboard. She was officially “general manager of Xbox experiences.”

Don Coyner, the man behind the design of Xbox 360, has left his post as lead of the design and experience group for Xbox, according to Cnet. Coyner has taken a new position inside Microsoft, according to Cnet sources, but it isn’t specified where that is. His replacement for the D&E Xbox group is Emma Williams, who is responsible for the recent Xbox Dashboard redesign. Coyner was mentioned in VentureBeat writer Dean Takahashi’s book ‘The Xbox 360 Uncloaked’ as having pushed for a “whole user experience to be consistent, like an Apple product.”
