Microsoft Internal Documents Leak Possible Xbox 720 Details, Price, And More *UPDATE*

By: ShadowKingpin

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 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.

With a lot to see, please check out the full article for everything here


Microsoft’s lawyers have demanded that the 56 page document be removed.  More in the link here

    It’s fake. Sorry.
    I don’t work for MS but I do with a company very closely linked to them, we were even rivals at one point. Now we know what we’re all doing. And this is such a massive fabrication.

    Well that’s a lie. It might be a lot different or a little different.

    Prototype zero.

    • But not all information is set out to companies who work with them, Microsoft is Microsoft. Funny thing about rumors, they usually turn out to be true.

      • Exactly. Microsoft isn’t stupid enough to share that kind of information with 98% of companies. That’s how leaks happen 😉 Also, these documents might just be rumor, but they look really legit to me from what I have seen. Maybe they are, maybe they aren’t. We will just have to wait and see.

        • Let me also mention, that this document seems to be old and possibly from around August 2010. What’s so important about that? Most of the stuff from that early document, like Smart Glass, were officially announced recently, which shows that this is document shows realism and that it is a rumor that is far more on the lines of being legit, than being fake.

    • Not so fake anymore. Microsofts Lawyers just asked for the information to be taken down via that site. So, see how rumors turn out to be true.
