An inside source simply referred to as "SuperDaE has revealed some interesting new tidbits about the Durango. For instance, the Durango will be featured alongside the Kinect 2. Not in some bundles, but as the actual pack-in controller with the system. In fact, the only way to get the Durango to work is to have the Kinect 2. The Kinect 2 can detect 6 people at once, and will be able to track thumbs independantly. In addition, Kinect 2 has a facial recognition system built in, which will allow it to see if you're, happy, angry, sad etc. \
Another mandatory feature for the Durango will be the installation of games directly onto the console. This means no saving your games onto USBs or SD cards. To accomodate all the downloads, the Durango will feature a 500 GB hard drive. Games are also reportedly able to be installed as backgrounds for the Durango. In addition, multiple games and applications can be run at the same time, similar to PCs and smartphones. Xbox 360 controllers will not work for the Durango because of the new wireless technology. As for the specifications of the Durango:
- It will feature an 8 core, 64 bit CPU running at 1.6 GHz
- Additionally, it will have an 800 mhz Direct X 11 capable GPU
- Along with that, it has 8GB of DDR3 memory, and an 50GB optical disk drive
It is also noted that th Durango can run 1080p in 3D quite easily.
