Xbox 720 (bet they wish they'd called it this instead!)

However, AMD, the tech company responsible for Xbox 360 graphics tech, said the next Xbox will be able to render graphical detail on par with James Cameron's sci-fi opus.

AMD won't confirm it's working on the new Xbox, but, according to the Official Xbox Magazine, AMD said the new Xbox will launch with that level of graphics.

What's more, AMD's Neal Robison added that the upcoming A.I. will enable every pedestrian in, say, Grand Theft Auto have their own personality and react to situations differently.

This sounds like AMD talking up whatever they're working on. Fingers crossed it actually pans out, because words like these can come back to haunt you.

Kotaku is following up with Microsoft and will update this post should the company comment.

I hope it's a damn sight better than Avatar else I'll be really peeved. Avatar looks just like a high poly count version of stuff we've already got, and I demand better from MS.

The likelihood of Microsoft willingly calling their next console the Xbox 720 is equal to the likelihood of me willingly calling myself a massive cockmuncher.

EDIT: screw it, If the console is officially revealed under that name then you can change my tag on TOP. :P

I'll change your name by deep poll if they do name it 720.
Also. It will be shit. Avatar and every pedestrian my fucking ballsack. They always promise this and that, and it is nearly always woefully short. Every one of them this is, not just MS>
However. I will get one.

Meh anything people talk about a a console at this stage is usually pure BS. Until the first one roles off the production line then I'll start deciding which one to get. I remember way back when the N64 was in development the claims made about it's power were just completely wild and were nothing compared to what they finished up with(the N64 was and still is awesome though). I'm just gonna wait and see how it pans out. For me I still prefer the 360 cos of the controller, don't like ps pads.

That's because you're a raging homosexual pedophile.

I'm sure it's been posted somewhere in these forums already but couldn't find it: MS 'leaked' strategy document

Time to change your sig, qazi?

Crap. I'm going to continue believing that it's a codename, a placeholder, a working title. Perhaps. :?

I kinda like it. They'll never go for that though, I reckon it'll be something along the lines of Kinect, and they'll drop the XBox moniker altogether.

Tomorrow, we'll know if Qazimod is a massive cockmuncher or not.
