(RUMOR) - Next Xbox may "require" internet connection
According to a report by Edge, the Xbox 720 will allegedly require an internet connection to function. A new Xbox Live will also play a huge role in the consoles services, and improved Kinect hardware will launch alongside the system.
Edges sources also explain that the Xbox 720 will use Blu-ray discs for physical media. Furthermore, the report claims that the recent Xbox spec rumors are largely accurate, including Microsofts use of an AMD eight-core x64 1.6 GHz CPU, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and a robust hard drive. While the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 apparently resemble PC architecture, other development sources claim that Sonys upcoming next-gen equipment is a preferable platform to work on, and its OS is less "oppressive" than Microsofts next-gen solution.
