I like the sound of 4GB of RAM and possible X86 architecture in the Xbox 720. Maybe we can get some decent console ports to the PC now.
If this is a legitimate document then I might be interested in buying one. Decent hardware specs and a revised Kinect experience might be worth the price of admission. I presume that the $299 price point is with a 2 year Xbox live contract. It makes sense because they are testing that business model out on the current 360. However, I would never suggest that anyone ever sign up for a contract like that for a console.
I also wouldn't want to be Nintendo right now. They have less than a year to pump and dump as many Wii U's as they can before Microsoft and Sony release much more powerful and versatile systems.
EDIT: While reading through the document I found this:
• Stream and play your AAA games remotely to any device
I bet that this explains all of the rumors about being able to play Xbox games on Windows 8. Looks like it'll act like a small personal cloud gaming service for your other devices.
Looks like they will also have a plan on keeping the 720 around for 10 years:
Should NOT require glasses or cloud processing
. Those will be layered inpost 2013.
Sounds like a hybrid cloud gaming service?Edited by AtomicFrost - 6/16/12 at 9:35am
