Another day, another rumor regarding the Microsoft Xbox 720 next generation video game console. Reports are now coming in that the console has gone into beta testing, and prototype kits are making the rounds to video game developers.

Twitter user, SuperDae, the same user who leaked the image of Xbox Kinect 2, is the source of the latest rumor. Now, if the leaked Xbox Kinect 2 image is real, then there is a chance the Xbox 720 is truly in beta stage, which could mean gamers could be in for a treat when E3 2013 takes centerstage next year.

Xbox 720 rumors began making headlines quiet regularly since the beginning of 2012, and got even more as 2012 comes to an end. The first big rumor was about so-called leaked details of the console that found its way on the Internet. Information found in this leaked document suggested that the Xbox 720 would feature 8GB of RAM, Blu-Ray disc drive, Xbox Kinect 2.0 built in, AR Glasses and a new controller.

Another rumor not too long ago claimed the Xbox 720 CPU is expected to clock at 1.66GHz, which is slightly faster than the slow CPU found in the Nintendo Wii U. Obviously, all rumors should be taken lightly until Microsoft or well known game developers make any form of official announcement regarding the specifications and features of the Xbox 720.

E3 2013 is right around the corner. Everything gamers want to know about the console should be revealed there along with the launch date and price. That's if rumors of the console launching in time for holidays next year hold any merit.
