The hopes and anticipations of Xbox users have already been put on a hold by Microsoft after the company announced that it had no plans of launching a successor to Xbox 360 this year. Now, a set of leaked documents confirm that the next-generation gaming console from Microsoft, popularly called Xbox 720, will be released in 2013.


A lot of other details have also been divulged through this 56-page detailed document.  Apparently, the document was created back in August 2010 and contains references that Microsoft had clear plans of appending its  Xbox franchise to its motion-sensor device, Kinect.

Xbox 720 Price and specs:
The price of Xbox 720, as revealed by these details documents, is expected to $299. Moreover, it will come with support for Blu-ray, native 3D output and glasses. The console will also have a number of apps. The video output of the console is touted to be at 1080p which will come will full 3D support.

The documents revealed  Microsoft promising a 6x increase in the power of Xbox, trying to decide whether to use six or eight ARM or x86 cores at 2GHz each and with 4 GB of DDR4 RAM. This is to be used in parallel to three PPC cores at 3.2GHz each. With such a hardware, Microsoft sure plans to pack a lot of power into the upcoming console.

The company has plans of selling Xbox 720 as the ultimate living-room device, one which will remove the need for any other kind of digital entertainment in the living room. From app development to using it like a PC to using apps, playing games, watching movies and much more, Microsoft wants to make Xbox 720 the ultimate living-room entertainment. And it packs the punch with a promised $299 price which will include Kinect 2 hardware.

The next version of Kinect – Kinect 2:
Interestingly, Microsoft also plans of launching a successor to its flagship motion-sensor hardware, Kinect. The successor is called Kinect 2 in the leaked documents and is expected to be revealed together with Xbox 720 next year. Kinect 2 comes with better accuracy, far better voice recognition, stereo imaging, support for 4-player tracking and dedicated hardware processing. According to a note about Kinect 2, written as part of the documents, “In Kinect v2 we can continue to go beyond controllers and offer peripherals and accessories that heighten game immersion.”

Microsoft also cites ambitions regarding an augmented reality glass, much like Google glasses, which it intends to pitch along with Kinect 2 to Xbox gamers.
