    Xbox 720 Specs Reportedly Leaked

    Posted 01/22/2013 at 4:09am | by Pulkit Chandna

    Xbox 720 will reportedly pack an eight-core 1.6GHz processor
    The first reports about the Xbox 720 (or whatever Microsoft’s next-gen console ends up being called) began appearing as early as 2006, even prompting Microsoft EMEA (European, Middle East, and Africa) vice president Chris Lewis to plead for “a chance to catch a breath” when asked about the Xbox 360’s predecessor during an interview in October that year. Now that Microsoft has had more than enough time to do so, people are growing restless. And when that happens, the rumor mill experiences heightened activity.
    VGLeaks, which claimed to have the dope on both Microsoft and Sony’s next-generation consoles over the weekend, has published an article detailing what it claims to be Durango’s (codename for Xbox 360’s successor) innards — complete with a block diagram (below) and all.
    According to the site, Durango packs an eight-core x64 powerplant with each core clocked at 1.6GHz. Further, the console is said to have 8GB of RAM, an 800MHz GPU with 12 shader cores, 50 GB 6x Blu-ray Disc drive, hard drive, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi direct.
    While this is nothing more than a rumor, it is not the most farfetched Xbox-related stuff we have come across recently. That honor belongs to Forbes columnist Adam Hartung’s suggestion that Microsoft’s entertainment division could end up getting “spun off, sold to someone like Sony or possibly Barnes & Noble, or dramatically reduced in size.”
    Anyway, VGLeaks is now promising to leak the tech specs of Sony’s eighth-generation console (code-named Orbis) which according to a separate report will hit the market after the Xbox 720.

    300-400$ depending on hard drive size I would have to assume. Can't go over that as the PS3 showed in it's 500 dollar days.

    It would be great if Microsoft came out with a bare-bones 360 replacement that was able to use the 360's existing hard drive and controller, at a discounted price (fat chance of that).

    I don't see any controller besting the current MS wireless one and the hard drive would be pretty easy to pop off and install on the new unit. If they could put this out at around $250, they'd really get the jump on the PS 4

    Just beefed my PC up. Friggen processor cost more then my Xbox. Might be tempted to do a 3 screen setup for games later on. Depends on the next gen graphics cards.

    As for the next Xbox, they could use a bit more power to do background detail, but that should really be easy now since they only have to do 1080 graphics

    8 x 1.6GHz = 12.8
    only 8 gigs of RAM for a next gen console.
    800MHz GPU with 12 shader cores?


    me thinks sony can do much better

    Probably, but the head start and manufacturers optimizing for xbox ahead of time makes a difference. Bethesda is still trying to get skyrim to work on PS3 a year + after it's release.

    Hello exactly.

    Does that mean services like gamefly will be done? Im not nearly the gamer I used to be and even when I was there were few and far between games I would pay $60 for (GTA). Especially when titles go on sales in a few months for +50% off on the PC side.

    This is fucking ridiculous. So if people want to get together and play games all day, everyone has to bring their individual systems (or everyone is expected to buy the same games)?

    It's all about control and squeezing out piracy. You'd think with that kind of control, game prices would go down...

    I wouldn't be surprised if GameFly/GameStop will sue for monopolizing the marketplace. If they don't, they go the way of Blockbuster.

    That part never seems to happen though. Just look at the way the industries over quote what piracy costs. Many people who pirate would never pay retail prices anyway and also pirate games the probably will never play. Besides havent they made it a real pain in the ass to pirate now, even harder to play pirated online.

    Not to mention reports are saying the starting price for PS4 is 400$ and up from there depending on the model. 33% less then their last systems start price but still 400$ is kinda steep for me. I can get two video card upgrades with that money which is about 5 years or more worth of gaming.

    My last 200$ card lasted 3 years I believe and technically I could still use it but fuck that shit, I'm a fancy man!

    New console price point should be $300. That should be your sweet spot. I sense Xbox's entry level console will be that.

    You can always get an Oooyahhh box and play the same crappy games for Android phones, only on a 55 inch TV screen.
