Between the new interface and T.V. jazz, Xbox 360’s are very quickly moving on up (if they weren’t already at the top).
Earlier today, IGN announced an insider scoop on the next generation Xbox 360. Sources close to the project let it slip that the new one will have six times the processing power of the current Xbox 360, and it will be hitting retailers as soon as 2013!! (We say “as soon as” with sarcasm, but we’re patient none of the less).
Fans have already given the guy a nickname: the “Xbox 720”. Mass production of the system’s new graphics processing unit (GPU) will begin by the end of 2012. Not only will the new GPU make it six times better, but it will also yield 20% greater performance than Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U.
Princing and images haven’t yet been announced, but developers are estimating that the console should be on shelves by October/November-ish of next year. Til then, read a book!
