Microsoft seems to have covered up the initial, massive Xbox 720 leak that we saw earlier this year pretty well. You should remember the now infamous Fortaleza document leak, which apparently revealed the main specifications of the next Xbox, notably the addition of Augmented Reality features, Xbox Glasses, Blu-Ray disc support and Kinect 2.0.
Microsoft has since removed all traces of that document off the internet, but Xbox World has written a feature on the new console in their penultimate issue, again revealing again some of the above specifications of the next console. According to XBW, the next-gen Xbox - which it speculates is likely to be called simply Xbox - will introduce Kinect 2.0, use Blu-ray discs and feature directional audio, a TV output AND input, 'innovative controller' and - at a later stage of the console's life - Augmented reality glasses glasses. Current codename 'Durango' dev kits boast a CPU with "four hardware cores, each divided into four logical cores" and an impressive 8GB of RAM, XBW reports. Overall, the only new thing revealed in this massive blowout seems to be a mock up of the console, which is an image that's been making the rounds on the web these past few days.
