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 Now if you don't mind - back to Half-Life 2 on my plain old soon-to-be-outdated Xbox 360.

Xbox 720? I hate marketing. Why not call it what it is, an Xbox 3, just like Windows 7 should actually be called Windows 6.1. Are consumers really this stupid?

Duh, then it would be no better than PS3... (just like X2 would be no better than PS2)

At best we can hope for some proper name, I suppose (SmartGlass -> Xbox Glass? ;p )
