XBOX 720 rumors

Xbox World, a U.K. based magazine, has an article on the upcoming next generation console from Microsoft. Microsoft's Xbox 720 will unveil a new version of Kinect, a Blu-ray drive, and an A/V port for watching and recording broadcast TV.

The latest issue of Xbox World dug up several reported specs on Microsoft's next console.
-The Xbox 720 will introduce Kinect 2.0.
-The rumor of a Blu-ray drive has been touted for a few years now.
-To mention a few other thing it will include directional audio, an input and output for watching and recording TV shows, and an "innovative controller".
-Last February, Xbox World said that the redesigned controller would come with a built-in HD touch screen.
-Microsoft is also eyeing AR (augmented reality) glasses for the 720 at some future stage.

The new Xbox would be powered by a CPU with "four hardware cores, each divided into four logical cores" and 8GB of RAM.

The Xbox 360 has been out since around 2005 with no real new hardware specifications so I'm very excited the read news about Microsoft's newest upcoming console.
