New hints point towards possible new Microsoft console...

An online portfolio may have turned up new details about future Microsoft hardware, leading to further speculation about the possibility of a new Microsoft console.

The website of designer Ben Peterson (via ZDNet) lists a “Confidential / Collaboration with Microsoft's IEB design group investigating future user experiences and hardware for 2015.”

A March 2011 date is attached to the post, suggesting the consultation is currently at a preliminary stage. The partial image on the right accompanied the post, along with the note “Work samples only permissible in person.”

Microsoft recently posted a job listing for a Graphics Hardware Architect, suggesting that significant new hardware is in the works. Whether the work of Peterson is related to that project, or another Microsoft device, is currently unclear.

2015 would mark 10 years from the launch of Xbox 360, in line with previous comments from hardware manufacturers regarding the lifespan of the current console generation.

Update: It's fake.

Peterson reached out to Eurogamer to confirm that he's not actually designing the next Xbox.

"I'm a student desinger, it's not real..." he revealed.
