Xbox 720 will land 201, come packing Kinect 2 and AR glasses?
The document features a placeholder design for the Xbox 720 that’s thinner and more squared-off than the Xbox 360 – looking somewhat like a Blu-ray player. That slimline frame will serve up a Blu-ray drive, a Kinect V2 sensor with 4-player tracking and an improved camera, along with a new Xbox Live dashboard. Core titles are expected to include new Halo, Fable and Gears of War games. They’ll be “4x-6x” better than current-gen titles, the document claims.
Now, it’s worth taking the document with a pinch of salt – it apparently dates back to 2010, so even if it’s authentic, Microsoft‘s plans may have changed since then. Details of its contents first appeared in early May on Nukezilla. Microsoft’s lawyers had the original Scribd leak taken down – which suggests it contains at least a grain of truth. GameInformer has it to view here, if you want to make up your own mind. Leak or fake? Whichever, it’s certainly an interesting read.
