I have a thread on another forum about the new Xbox.

- Feature Version 2 of Kinect, allowing up to 4 players at a time, and working in smaller areas
- Includes SmartGlass technology
- Fortaleza Technology. Basically what this is, is glasses that when you put them on, it shows your HUD display on any game. Ammo, Health, mini-map, etc. It wont be ready for the systems launch, but later on as a add-on.
- Could be "Used Game" Industry Killer.
- 10 year life-cycle for the 720
- Cloud interaction for media streaming
- The "No disc Drive" Rumor is looking true also, sadly to say.
- if true, then the xbox may be on a entire digital platform
- Download codes will be available. Sadly.
Pros of this: Midnight realeases, impulsive buys, conveniant, and saves gas for some.
Cons: Difficult for playing on multiple consoles, licensing problems, have to re-download when moving consoles instead of moving with memory, no used game sales, most people prefer physical copies, sales are likley to dwindle down.
- THE CONTROLLER!
- It looks very much like the wii U controller.
- BUT! YES BUT! Microsoft has said they might try to push it into a remote controller for the tv, AND a portable console.
- Controller may be new next gen mobile gaming system.
- The new xbox will require constant internet connection, just trying to go with rival PS4, which will need to be activated online to play games, but not constant connection.
So with all this, to me it seems we may be able to blame Sony for all this."
Updates that I found, next gen Xbox is either named 720, Durango, or simply, Xbox.
I am excited about the Fortaleza. I havnt searched hard in awhile, so I might do this. Also, the magazine Xbox World is supposed to be revealing everything about the Xbox this December issue. Which is also their last.
