New Xbox Spec News

#1Reece504Posted 3/14/2013 4:09:20 PM
The next-generation console rumors have been flying around for the past 2 years. Recently, the speculations have been out of control as a possible announcement date gets closer. Speaking with a source who has had hands-on time with the new Xbox console prototype, we’ve learned a few new details. Under conditions of anonymity the source had this to say in regards to testing:


“Microsoft has the prototypes monitored under a microscope and an air tight confidentiality clause.”



There was some information the source was willing to provide. The full details are below:

While no confirmation on an announcement date, E3 will be “Party Central” in the Xbox booth
The new ’720′ will have 3x the processing speed of the current 360
No hard release date but it looks like Holiday 2013
2 launch versions. 320 GB Arcade / 500 GB Pro. Exact pricing is unknown
1 TB HDD available as a separate purchase
It will not include Blu-Ray
No picture was available as prototype consoles are packaged in a 360 slim case to “avoid complications” about the design until announcement
Tech Specs; AMD eight-core x64 1.6GHz CPU, Direct3d 11.x 800MHz GPU, and 8GB of DDR3 RAM
Xbox Smartglass is still a feature in use
No word on Kinect 2.0
No word on “Immersive” technology being implemented
Expect new information closer to E3.

Yeah they don't own the blu-ray liscense lol.

Frankly if The Next Xbox doesn't go with Blu-Ray.. that would hurt it a LOT.

But why would a source that has just been technically testing it know what the system is going to come out with later on in the year?

I mean I can understand knowing the speccs inside it possibly but why would they tell a person the packages it'll release with?
