Xbox 720 rumours are doing the rounds as the specifications of the new Xbox variant were revealed by Xbox World magazine. Xbox 720, reportedly code-named ‘Durango’ will feature four hardware cores with each further divided into four logical cores. The new Xbox features list published by Xbox World is slated to be derived from a leaked Microsoft document.
The Xbox 720 or simply the Xbox is speculated to feature the much-awaited Blu-ray support, 8GB of RAM, directional audio, TV input and output and an innovative controller to increase the level of experience for the gaming community regulars. The new controller is alleged to be similar to Nintendo Wii U’s second screen controller.
The Xbox 720 is rumoured to operate on Kinect 2.0 and sport Augmented Reality (AR) feature in the later stages of its arrival with the support of Google Project Glass. The report in Xbox magazine also declares the Xbox 720 release date to fall in 2013. Microsoft has neither denied nor confirmed any existing rumours about its new gaming console.
Rumours about Microsoft building a Xbox Surface gaming tablet have also hit the market after the technology giant released its own tablet. Gaming faithfuls would be hoping for a PS Vita-style syncing mechanism for the two variants of the gaming console. Xbox World has been at the helm for reporting news about Xbox 720, but the report’s originality is yet to be verified.
Xbox’s rival PlayStation 4 speculations have already flooded the market as reports suggest that PS4 is in its testing mode through developers and is reported to be based on AMD’s A10 APU series.
