X Box 720 rumors have begun....

http://www.gamechup.com/xbox-720-spe...dows-8-kernel/

"This latest rumour is via BD, who posts regularly on TGFC, which is a Chinese forum. What’s special about him? Well, he is an ex-Ubisoft employee, and claims to know all information about the Xbox 720, including the RAM, and plenty of other stuff.

According to him, the Xbox 720 will have an eight-core CPU, and an 8800 series GPU. This also fits in with our previous report where we mentioned that the Xbox 720 could be running on a AMD HD 8000M graphics card.

It is also said that Microsoft will be using Windows 8 kernel for the system, which is pretty straightforward, as they have been pushing it a lot. He said that it will have 8 GB memory and a 640 GB hard drive."

You know, current PC systems have 8 gig of memory. Memory issues have plagued the systems for the past year plus of the cycle (Skyrim, Fallout games) so I wonder if that is too low. The fact that the guy is a former employe to a major company gives the rumor some credence, though I really expected 16 gig of memory. Gotta keep costs down though. Windows 8 isn't a surprise at all, not for a home console. Windows 7 still much better on a PC.

Wouldn't have a problem with anything in the article. Even the concept design looks great.

I wonder what the price of the Xbox 720 will be? I would say $500 but I wouldn't be surprised if its higher than that.

Pretty sure it's Xbox 8 now. Codename Durango.

Don't touch the controller, that's all I ask.

I don't really expect 8 GB of RAM to be an issue at all, especially when you consider that the current XBOX only has 512 MB of RAM.

Agreed. The controller is perfect. One of my favourites for any console, along with the 'Cube and N64's...

That's honestly really sad.

No but 7 years ago people had about a gig at the most and the lack of memory has been a sticking point with games such as Skyrim and Fallout, so it's shown it's age.

8 gig may be enough for 7 more years til the Ps5 and X Box 1440 or whatever they call it. I guess it depends how much 8 vs 16 gig would be for the systems in terms of cost increase.
