Games "A newly leaked 56-page document sheds some light on the company's plans, for what it calls the 'Xbox 720'. The presentation appears to be from August 2010, and references future improvements like SmartGlass, a Metro dashboard, and Xbox TV apps. Alongside its incremental Xbox 360 updates, Microsoft has a clear vision for its next-generation Xbox 720 console - we've dug into its plans to bring you the best bits." It's important to note the documentation is already two years old - a lifetime in the technology world. Still interesting, though. Now if you don't mind - back to Half-Life 2 on my plain old soon-to-be-outdated Xbox 360.

What's with the 360 -> 720 thing? Will the next one be 1080?
Is it a sign that they are just going in circles?

I'm reasonably certain that 720 + 360 = 1080.

Or 720 could be the estimated number of sales in Japan, if they're lucky ;)

The original XBox release did strike me as very ’MURCA. I think they’ll have their act together this time around and less monster-truck games.
