Gizmodo reports that the details of the upcoming Xbox 720 console have been leaked in the form of a leaked Microsoft presentation document dating back to 2010. Some pretty nice features are included such as Blue-Ray support, Kinnect 2, PVR functionality, full HD with 3D, Virtual reality via added glasses peripheral, and the new smartglass system. All for around $299! My opinion here is that this “leak” was on purpose and is there to take some of the wind out of Nintendo’s sails. Will it? Hard to say. But, Microsoft is clearly trying to make the Xbox become the only entertainment box you need in your living-room. Yes this leak dates back awhile, and things like Blue-Ray support and VR goggles might get dropped. Surely though, Sony and Nintendo are now on notice. Unfortunately for Nintendo, R&D time is over for their new Wii U. They better put out some amazing games. And now the ball is in Sony’s court to wow us with their plan for a new Playstation product.
