A Microsoft strategy document acquired by a NeoGaf forum poster by the name of jeff_rigby suggest many details on the future XBOX console. In the document (PDF) there are proximately 56 pages with some serious information that the folks over at Microsoft wouldn’t want you to know. To add more wood into the fire, the law firm Covington & Burling, which apparently has represented Microsoft in the past has asked Scribd to remove the document that was available to download.
Below you can see a diagram that was in the document and from the looks of things this new XBOX will be about 8 times faster than the current generation 360.
In addition to the diagram up top, the document shows what appears to be Microsoft’s plans for the next 3 years. In 2013 this new XBOX will be the only box needed for next-gen gaming and entertainment. It also talks about XTV, STB and a new version of the sensor technology Kinect. You can also see that Microsoft is taking that whole smartphone/tablet feature serious and with that the possibilities are endless.
The other interesting thing here is the Fortaleza Glasses, which bring in a whole new experience to gaming in the living room. These glasses will connect to the new XBOX via wi-fi and if true will probably take down the Wii U and anything that sony is planning with the PlayStation 4.
With these things it is best to put them in the rumor section. As of now Microsoft has not announced anything that even suggest a new console, but certain things have made us suspicious on their plans. Let’s hope that this document is real and that these things get announce at E3 next year.
