The new head of Microsoft Japan's Xbox division, Yoshihiro Maruyama, has commented on the company's plans for its next-generation console, stating that the hardware will be smaller and is due to launch in 2006. That date will depend heavily on when Sony decides to launch the PS3. "Whether we'll release the successor of the Xbox before the PS2's needs to be decided carefully," he commented. "It has strong pros and cons."

What is it with this "new" executives, last week a new european executive at Sony commented on Sony PSP details. Seems those guys try to rebel a bit inside the big corporations or try to make a name for themselves.
The last time we heard something about the next generation XBox was back in june from Steve Balmer.
