The deets on the next Xbox, affectionately referred to as the 720, but rumored to sport a codename of Durango, are still few and far between. However, Xbox World, a print publication, claims to have more details on the next gen video game console, which is rumored to be announced before next year’s E3.
Under the hood is a quad-core processor and up to 8GB of RAM. It should result in some speedy hardware that can handle a serious walloping from game developers. Blu-ray seems inevitable, though the technology is already beginning to get a bit long in the tooth. We suppose if household bandwidth could efficiently support game downloads of an HD caliber they’d negate that piece of hardware, but it doesn’t hurt to have a player built-in for movies. Not much more is known, though the print pub says that it will be simply called “Xbox” and include “directional audio, a TV output AND input, ‘innovative controller’ and – at a later stage of the console’s life – AR glasses.” We should also expect the arrival of Kinect 2.0, which we already told you about.
To be candid, the picture above is merely a mockup derived from rumor and speculation.
