Microsoft Will Announce The Next Xbox On May 21

•, Steve Kovach
 Here's what we know about the next Xbox so far:
 It'll reportedly require an Internet connection to play games. The console won't let you play if you lose the connection or can't access one.
 It will link to your cable box via an HDMI cable and add an Xbox layer on top of your regular cable menu. It's very similar to the way Google TV works.
There have also been reports of a second Xbox, a stripped down version that will let you stream content from services like Netflix and HBO GO and play simple downloadable games. That device would be more like the Apple TV or Roku than a powerful gaming console.  
Finally, there are some scattered reports that the next Kinect sensor will have some cool features like enhanced voice control and greater motion sensitivity.
Of course, these are just reports and rumors for now, and we won't know anything for sure until next month.
