    Microsoft seems to have covered up the initial, massive Xbox 720 leak that we saw earlier this year pretty well. You should remember the now infamous Fortaleza document leak, which apparently revealed...

    Not understanding their idea to just call it "Xbox". They already had a system called that. I think that will just create confusion on what people talk to. Sure people can say 360 to mean that, but if I say I got an Xbox, you have to find some new way to say it because you could be talking about 3 different generations. Seems like people at MS want to have brands don't think about what sort of effect that will have in what people ending up calling (as without a proper differentiator it will be commonly referred to as whatever catches on in the web).

    I kinda like how it looks actually, tho don't think that will be what it will look like at all :D 8gb ram that's nice.

    I quite like it tbh even if it looks like a PS3 tho. It must be that black/chrome combo.

    Based on the loading slot I'm assuming its length is around 14in/35cm+/-. Ps3 is 12.75in/32.38cm and slim 11.42in/29cm.

    But then again I highly doubt this is even remotely close to the finished product. But you never know.

    It looks like a Mac Mini or Apple TV. Hopefully they don't get sued. :O

    Only 8GB ram? I guess its enough.

    I like the idea of logical threading for the CPU, I wonder what type of video processing they will put in it.

    Also pretty sure that rectangular design with rounded edges falls into apple's patents. :stewpid:
    Anyone else think its terribly ugly? Only my opinion ...

    Not at all, looks fine to me, plus, easily stackable, unlike the ps3

    No way, it's not ugly at all. I think that looks pretty sleek.

    Not only that, but it looks like the thing fits in an entertainment center. That's something that needs to be taken into account. These consoles aren't just for games anymore, they're entertainment centers. They need to fit that role functionally and aesthetically.

    I think that does it, but this is probably just a mock-up anyway.

    This design more than any other console blends in better with audio receivers, DVR's, BluRay players, cable boxes, etc.

    Still reminds me of the iPhone 4 :p Sounds impressive, I hope studios make larger maps and improve the physics we have in games and not just make them shiny ... who am I kidding.

    4 threads per core? I can't tell if that's overkill or not.
