An internal document of "Xbox 720" accidentally found its way online on Sunday. Microsoft had the documents removed from Scribd after finding out about the leak quickly.
The 56-page document was all about Microsoft's future plan on Xbox TV apps, SmartGlass and augmented glasses. The new console by Microsoft is referred as "Xbox 720" or with its codename "Yukon". If the leaked document is valid, users can expect to see the new console six times more powerful than the old one, Blu-ray drive like PlayStation 3, full 3D support and full 1080p output. The new device will be packed with either ARM or Intel CPU cores with 4GB of DDR4 memory. It will be also packed with an additional 3.2GHz PowerPC CPU to support Xbox 360's old games.
Microsoft is also planning to add TV tuner and PVR function in the Xbox to make it work like a TV box. People would be able to record their favorite shows while playing a game without impacting the gaming performance or recording tasks.
"Yukon will enable the next step in cross screen functionality," the leaked document reveals. "At its most basic Yukon will be little different than a PC, Windows Phone or Slate albeit with a unique I/O interface. Developers and Creators will be able to deliver application experiences across three screens easily and dependably via HTML5 authoring and the scotch platform. The platform will enable cross platform game development to allow companion gaming experiences."
After looking at the plans, it won't be wrong to say Microsoft is planning to take over the living room completely with its new console. There are also some hints about the cloud gaming service in the document. The company is also planning to add Kinect 2 with the Xbox 720.
The request for removal in Scribd was made by Covington & Burling LLP and not Microsoft. However, Microsoft is a client of the law firm.
