The new XBOX when releases I don't know honestly.But Its name might be ''XBOX 8''.Not 720.You can call anything you want.The cops aren't gonna catch you.No,It will not run on Windows 8.There might be two editions of it.One Is more like a set top box for your TV.It will play some ARCADE games.Not heavy Titles.Things like Facebook,Twitter,netflix will be used by this device.The other one is for the Games.Might use HD6770 gpu.Don't know anything else about it.And yes The set top box might use Windows 8.
Please notice I used MIGHT everywhere.Cause there are still rumors.But the strongest rumors.cause this was posted in IGN a few months back.couldn't post the link cause couldn't find it.Sorry for taking your time.Thanks for reading this long.
^Dude don't have a care bout whatsoever it got, only thing am looking towards is integrated Kinect modem and of course Blu-ray gaming.
^^^blue-ray gaming ?? :S...i read somewhere the new xbox will dont have any optical drive..only digital downlod
Jani na...dekha jaak ki hoy
no new xbox will have bluray drive. Perhaps the next console after xbox 720 will have digital downloads only.
blue ray thakleo ki na thakleo ki...amra to mod korei chalabo...
Don't you think the whole digital console is too soon? Like Onlive i mean come on even that move was too soon for the generation
I still prefer Blu-ray gaming till Internet becomes free(which would take another decade or so)
anyone noticed this countdown for a major announcement? that is the next xbox.
It will be modable..maybe it will take some time..but surely it will be modable

With just two weeks to go until we "see the future" of PlayStation, we're starting to hear more details on the future of Xbox. Edge magazine reports that Microsoft's new console will require an internet connection with activation codes for games on 50GB-capacity Blu-ray discs. Citing sources with "first-hand experience" of the new Xbox console, Edge says it's likely that purchased games will not be able to be resold.
We've heard rumors about Microsoft's Blu-ray plans and an anti-used-game system before, but an activation system coupled with an online requirement sounds like a key way to prevent piracy for the next-generation of console games. If Microsoft locks out the second-hand market for its next Xbox console then that will not sit well with a number of gamers, so we'd hope that Microsoft has plans to support game sharing somehow.
Edge also backs up previous rumors that an AMD CPU will power the next Xbox, but doesn't shed light on any further specifications. Microsoft is widely expected to fully detail its next-generation Xbox at E3 in the summer, with a release date later this year.

yes this is why i said digital download only gaming is too early for console. If they do that, no way they can sell them in developing markets in Asia.

Xbox 720 has Siri-like voice recognition?
Microsoft supposedly beefing up speech recognition technology for next-generation Xbox.
Microsoft's next-generation Xbox will feature improved voice recognition technology across the board, sources have told The Verge. People reportedly familiar with the next Xbox say it will support "wake on" voice, natural-language controls, and speech-to-text. Gamers will be able to walk into a room and say "Xbox on" to boot up the console, these people said.
In addition, a Kinect sensor--perhaps the rumored Kinect V2--will be able to detect users in a room and suggest appropriate multiplayer games based on a voice search, the sources said.
This natural-language detection is said to be similar to Apple's Siri service, which allows users to ask questions and see results in real time. In an Xbox context, players could ask, "What are my friends playing?" and their friends list would appear.
Speech-to-text will be built into the Xbox 720, the sources said, allowing users to input messages and codes with their voices and not through manual button presses. On top of this, the next-generation platform will reportedly feature Skype integration in some way. Microsoft purchased Skype in 2011 for $8.5 billion, though the video service has yet to appear on the Xbox.
Microsoft has yet to discuss plans beyond the Xbox 360 and declined to comment on this rumor. The company is believed to announce its next-generation platform at an Apple-style media presentation in March, perhaps in conjunction with the Game Developers Conference.
