    Xbox 720 Will Be Cheaper, 'Far Smaller Than 360' And Run On Windows 9 [Rumor]

    www.industrygamers.com



    Xbox 360's successor is clearly in the works, although it's debatable when exactly it'll be unveiled. In the meantime, reports continue to surface on what Microsoft has planned for its next games console. One of the newest reports comes from a source known as "MS nerd," who indicates that the next Xbox will be based on Windows 9 and an ARM architecture.

    Moreover, it'll be much smaller and, importantly, cheaper than the existing Xbox 360, enabling Microsoft to better drive adoption of its hardware and the Kinect platform.

    The MS nerd source is not just any blogger, as this person had accurate information on Microsoft's Courier, (the abandoned tablet project) well in advance, so clearly there's a connection here to Microsoft's Entertainment & Devices group.

    Regarding the next Xbox, MS nerd wrote, "With a heady mix of rumors, tips and speculation, I am now stating that Xbox codename 'loop'(the erstwhile XboxTV) will indeed debut a modified Win9 core. It will use a Zune HD-like hardware platform—a 'main' processor with multiple dedicated assistive cores for graphics, AI, physics, sound, networking, encryption and sensors. It will be custom designed by Microsoft and two partners based on the ARM architecture. It will be cheaper than the 360, further enabling Kinect adoption. And it will be far smaller than the 360. It will also demonstrate how Windows Phone could possible implement Win9’s dev platform on the lower end."

    For now, of course, take this information with several grains of salt, but it certainly sounds plausible.

    Agree! Microsoft loves making money!
    If hardware is easy to manufacture it should be cheaper I hear they never really profit from selling consoles, probably most of the money goes into research and development.
    ARM Architecture hopefully...that means faster and not a mobile platform.

    It's always great to hear these types of rumors. Lets you know that xbox will continue and i can keep playing it. I agree with sterling it does sound plausible. Being cheaper i can doubt that. All the new software(if they are making an xbox 720) would just be plain great. I can look forward to playing the new COD on it lol.

    This is fascinating news to me. Look at how the psx went to psone . I know the camparison is no way same as internal kit involved.

    Wonder if it will be x-clamped micro version bummer lol.
