Rumor Thirst: Next Xbox already in the works, AMD won GPU deal

I said in an article that Microsoft will jump into the next generation of consoles before Sony, and if this rumor turns out to be true, it would vindicate my opinion. The Xbox 360 don't have much wind left to blow, and the Redmond giant knows it. According to fudzilla, AMD has already won a deal to produce the GPU for the next Xbox.

The GPU in the current Xbox 360 was also made by AMD, so it seems Microsoft is happy with AMD's offerings, and decided if it ain't broke don't fix it?

The report states that the new console will be released in 2010 since the current economic crisis prevented both Microsoft and Sony from releasing their next gen systems earlier. Get the full thing here. Remember it's a rumor, so take with a grain of salt.
