Microsoft Internal Documents Leak Possible Xbox 720 Details, Price, And More *UPDATE*
This article is a rumor, though this is one of the better rumors that I have seen. The documents seem to be from August of 2010, and shows projects that have just been recently announced, like Smart Glass. It adds credibility, but it is a rumor nonetheless.
An internal Microsoft strategy document that appears to be genuine has been discovered by NeoGAF poster jeff_rigby on Scribd.com outlines Redmond’s broad strategy for their post-360 console hardware. The 54 page document labeled “720 9/24″ describes a system 8 times as powerful as the Xbox 360 that will include a Blu-ray drive, whole house DVR capabilites, and an upgraded Kinect v.2 with four player tracking and HD video capture.
This is truly amazing. With major aspects like a $299 price tag, Kinect V2 that allows for HD video recording and 4 person tracking, 120 watts, a 6-8 core x86 or ARM-based CPU, 4GBs of RAM, a separate ARM-based, dual core embedded CPU for low power media functionality, and the original tri-core PowerPC CPU from the 360 for backwards compatibility.
