Aah, the new Xbox. Wouldn’t you like to know more about it?
So would I. So would the Queen of England. So would every Martian from every province and planet of the Milky Way.
The new Xbox is a pretty hot topic.
I’ve addressed Xbox rumours before, as I did in my Xbox 720 rumour round up (a must read if you’re the Queen, a Milky Way Martian or a gamer of any kind) but this new Xbox info, is as close to ‘confirmed’ as the next-gen Xbox hype machine has ever gotten.

In the poll in our sidebar, we’re currently asking you who you like best – Nathan Drake from Uncharted or Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, but today JSX is taking a time out from asking you questions (though you should go and vote, the winner gets a special feature post!) to answer some of the qs that you’re burning to know the answers to.
Spending too much time on the Internet is what I do best, I hoover up links like a black hole of cyber-consumption. I can’t help it. I’m addicted to procrastination, so sue me.
One particular sort of story that I’ve seen cropping up more than usual on the interwebs over these past few days is that of the “rumoured” successor to the Xbox 360, the Xbox 720. I addressed one of these rumours with Friday’s post but since then, even more ‘legit info’ has flooded onto the Internet. Obviously none of these things have been confirmed and are what I like to call the “Internet’s sandwich” – one slice of flamebait, another slice of *mostly* fictitious industry ‘insight’ with a delicious mouth-watering filling of overactive fanboy imaginations.
True or not, these rumours are the closest thing you and I have got to the real deal, so to save you having to join me in my rumour-gobbling Internet hunt, I’ve compiled a list of all of the things worth knowing about the Xbox 720.
This post comes fresh off the news that Sony and Microsoft will be announcing the successors to the current gen of consoles at this year’s E3 in an effort to compete with Nintendo’s next console effort, the Wii U (source).
I’m a skeptical woman, both consoles are rumoured, even if they do come from a highly reputable source, but I’ll still refuse to believe either console’s’ existence until I have the actual, tangible product in my arms and the reality has set in that I now have no money or a social life thanks to them.
However, one can cross all of their fingers, toes and other crossable body parts that come June 2012, both will be confirmed by the Microsoft and Sony bigwigs themselves but until then I’ve put together a list of all of the things we should hope are included (or avoided) in the new next-gen platforms.
