So many Xbox fans have been looking forward to the release since rumors of this new console surfaced a few years ago. The 720 is expected to be released in time for Christmas next year. So what can we expect from the 720?
The rumors suggest that it will come with AMD’s revision of the 7000 series graphics. The GPU setup in the 720 will be “like two PC`s tapped together”. What does this mean? Two graphics cards running in SLI? The AMD 7000 series graphics would put the new Xbox on a par with the current specs of the play station 4 which is also rumored to contain AMD Southern Islands graphics as well as an AMD x86 CPU.
On February 10, 2012, Xbox World magazine reported that the controller will be “an HD screen surrounded by the traditional 360 buttons and sticks” and that it “could be a remote control when you’re watching TV, a browser when you’re on the internet, extra buttons and information when you’re playing a game or a portable display when you want to take your game with you.”
How much would we be expected to pay for the console, a leaked document from Microsoft mentioned a price point of £190 which is extremely cheap and generous from Microsoft; maybe because the PS4 is being released just around the same time, but I expect it to be a bit more.
