Yesterday Mashable revealed that a Microsoft document, dating as far back as mid-2010, shows the plans for their upcoming gaming console. The document itself was quickly removed since its discovery.
Some notable features were listed for the “Xbox 720.” These include the Xbox SmartGlass, support for Blu-ray, 3D glasses, cloud-based gaming abilities, and an improved Kinect system. New Kinect 2 hardware will incorporate better voice recognition, hardware processing, and stereo imaging. If this is still the plan, it proves that Microsoft isn’t just improving the way you play the game; its changing it. The console will also have 1080p output with full 3D support, according to The Verge. The documents also showcased plans for the “Fortaleza” Kinect glasses, which will be sold separately. The glasses will be able to connect to WiFi and incorporate augmented reality into gaming. These are marked for debut sometime in 2014.
The sleek black design that was shown in the document (as well as above) seemingly will be the only entertainment device you’ll need, besides the TV of course. Microsoft’s goal is to sell 100 million units at around $299 a piece in 2013.
