New Next Gen Xbox Rumors
Edge Online is reporting on a couple of new rumors regarding Microsoft’s next generation Xbox console. According to Edge Online’s sources, the next Xbox will alway be connected to the internet, this also means that the console would require an internet connection to function. A new version of Xbox Live will be released along side the new console. Physical games will come in 50GB capacity Blu Ray discs with an activation code for the game to work although you’ll still be able to buy games online through the Xbox Live Arcade.
In terms of technical specification, the next Xbox is said to be powered by an AMD eight-core x64 1.6GHz CPU, a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics card and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. Specific hard drives have yet to be determined. There will also be a new version of Kinect with new hardware that improves the reliability of the lens/camera.
Only time will tell if these rumors are true. However, with Sony most likely announcing the PS4 in only a matter of weeks, we can expect Microsoft to make its own next-gen move soon as well. On the other side, you can read up on our editor Evan’s opinion on all these rumors here.
