A tech magazine has confirmed certain features, although the launch date and several other information was kept delayed for announcement.
Till now very few though exciting details officially announced about the upcoming Microsoft's next-gen Xbox kept us waiting for the device launch.
We knew about the directional sound and a four-player finger-tracking Kinect (2.0), however, adding to the desperation and building more hype, some additional details have been leaked out by the Xbox World's editor in chief, in honor of the magzine's final issue.
The additional features will include a Blu-ray drive (finally!), directional audio, a TV output and input, an 'innovative controller' and even AR glasses. Although the launch has still not been revealed.
Also the editor Dawkins has rolled out a predicted 3D mock up of how the next-gen Xbox would look like. The outlined display has been crafted based on the magazine's leaked information and with due creative contribution from other trusted sources.
"We built ours with the same glossy face and patented VapourMG magnesium alloy Microsoft uses for its Surface tablet, and modelled the silver band after its new 'Wedge' touch keyboard and flexible Arc Touch mouse," said Dawkins.
Without attesting to the final specs, Dawkins said that the version of the Xbox 720 Durango developer kit would be equipped with a CPU loaded with four hardware cores, each divided into four logical cores along with 8GB of RAM.
The Xbox 360 launched way back in 2005 and has garnered overwhelming response from the users. The console is powered by a 3.2 GHz PowerPC Tri-Core Xenon, 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM clocked at 700 MHz, along with a 500 MHz ATI Xenos (graphics).
