"Xbox 720" rumors are becoming reality
The rumors we reported on early last week about a next-generation Xbox are all but confirmed at this point. Four resumes all point to various Microsoft employees having positions on "next-gen console development" teams. While the title may not specifically mention the new console, all of the job description talk about the "next-gen" or "next-generation" as it pertains to Xbox.
The positions are as follows:
- Jeff Faulkner as the “Xbox Next Gen Creative Director,”
- Jonathan Harris as the“Senior Creative Director for Xbox”
- Joe Langevin as the “Xbox Hardware Intern at Microsoft,”
- Patrick Corrigan shows he worked on “XBOX UI + Branding at Microsoft"
We still know nothing about the actually hardware, but someone is working on it right now. What to name it though? You could go with an "on the nose" approach and call it "Next-Gen Xbox", but what do you g1s think? Xbox 720, Next-Gen Xbox, or even NEXTBOX...
Bring on new consoles, im all for POWER as my name implies
how bout the xbox U cuz thats working so well for nintendo
y does someone working on the user interface also have to work on the branding,isnt 1 supposed to b a technical job and the other a marketing job,r they gonna market their user interface,if thats going to b microsoft's usp then the console would b ................................... & backwards compatability is going to b rudimentaey coz windows 8 will b able to play 360 games & pc is going to get a kinect controller,& i dont think microsoft will come up with a new & better controller in time,wii u is very unpredectable so i c very few early adopters for these systems,so people r gonna stick with their old consoles and pc
no one probably knew this Easter egg in a movie i guess but i saw real steel and in there in a match was an ad for a 720 so we know it will come out by 2027 at least
If their is going to be one thing. The next Xbox will have kinect built in so how about instead of saying Xbox it is called the Holopanel or Monitor X.
How about we call it the Xbox Holodeck? However, I'm still having a great deal of awesome with the current-gen hardware.
I agree, 720 just seems lazy and weaksauce
I hope they come up with a better name than an xbox 720...
pretty good news for xbox fans
no no no no no not yet i dont want a new nex gen console yet its way to early!!!!!
How about Ybox
What know whats odd? In the recent movie "Real Steel", theres even ads that saids Xbox 720 inside the robot stadium during a event. Maybe it puts more truth into this news.
