$299 Xbox 720, Kinect 2, Kinect Glasses, and More info Leaked on Microsoft’s New Console.

More leaked information is being passed around the internet as a 56-paged document exposed the console inside and out. It is said to be from August of 2010 and reveals information such as SmartGlass, Metro dashboard, and Xbox TV Apps.

The document that is said to be from Microsoft, introduces more than just a console and a controller. It may also come with native 3d glasses. The console is also said to be more powerful. It will have 6x the performance speed (6x RAM maybe?) and true 1080p (duh) and full 3D support. Users can also toggle ‘always on’ switch. The console plays blue-ray and can run more than 1 app at a time. This may be supported by its multi-core processor.

Microsoft appears to have been debating whether to use six or eight ARM or x86 cores clocked at 2GHz each with 4GB of DDR4 memory alongside three PPC cores clocked at 3.2GHz each for backwards compatibility with existing Xbox 360 titles. – Tom Warren from TheVerge.com

Their goal is to make it so that your new Xbox will be all you need for all your entertainment. It will eliminate the need for cable boxes, Blue-ray players, and any other media players.
