the Microsoft next-gen platform Xbox 720 called Durango, i think it's first console has ever required an Internet connection to function but report claims Microsoft's still-unannounced next-gen platform will require an Internet connection to boot up. they explained that if the system goes offline for more than three minutes, any game or app that is running will be suspended.they claimed the Xbox 720's always-online requirement was an effort to combat piracy.the next Xbox will sport two graphics processing units (GPUs), It's like two PCs taped together. Graphics cards in the system are believed to be equivalent to AMD's 7000 series GPUs, but not CrossFire or SLI.
the Xbox 360 successor will use "four or six" cores for processing. One is for the Kinect and one for the operating system and the next generation Kinect is said to be built into the machine as a standard feature and the Xbox 720 will require Kinect to function.the new version of Kinect is reportedly able to track up to six individuals in the same room at all times. In addition, the peripheral's camera will be able to independently track thumbs, allowing it to know whether a player's hand is open or closed. The camera can also read facial expressions, the documents said, meaning it can tell if a player is angry, sad, or excited.
Microsoft's next Xbox will not have a disc drive.to replace the disc drive, the console will supposedly offer "some sort of interchangeable solid-state card storage." It was not made clear whether or not it will be proprietary or a common format like SD.but in other hand earlier speculation suggested that not only would the next Xbox sport a disc drive, but it would also play Blu-ray discs, an upgrade from the Xbox 360's DVD functionality.
another feature for the Xbox 720 will be game installs.on Xbox 360, players have the choice of whether or not they wish to install a game to their hard drives.all Xbox 720 systems will ship with a 500GB hard drive.
the Xbox 720 will reportedly be able to simultaneously run more than one game or application this is nothing new for PC players,but would be a first for any console. Xbox 720 games can be put into some kind of suspend or constrained modes,so players can pause a game, switch to another title, then return to the first without losing any save information.
Xbox 360 controllers will not work with the next platform, due to Microsoft's new wireless technology.
i hope it helps........
