U.K based magazine Xbox world said the next-generation Xbox 720 will showcase a much broader hardware and a full array of enhancers that will surely make it the most advanced gaming console to ever hit the market.

Microsoft is reportedly scheduled to unveil the latest version of their XBOX console late next year and is expected to take gaming experience to another level with the incorporation of multimedia enhancers such as a Blue-ray drive, an upgraded version of Kinect, and an A/V port for both watchng and recording broadcast TV.

Xbox world’s latest edition provides a sneak of peak of what to expect in Microsoft 720, calling it a ‘promising’ next generation console.

With regards to the next version of Kinect, Microsoft hasn’t announced any details about it yet but Kinect 2.0 will reportedly offer a higher level of accuracy, better voice recognition, stereo imaging, and the capability to track four players at once.

There are also reports that Microsoft will add a Blue-ray drive into its system along with directional audio, an innovative controller and a built-in HD Touch screen.

In an interview with CVG, Xbox world editor-in-chief Dan Dawkins revealed that they have been monitoring the development of Durango project and his team will likely release a full preview of the next-gen console even before the E3 convention in June.

“Xbox World has been at the cutting edge of Durango coverage for over 12 months. Unless something really dramatic changes, everything we reveal in our penultimate issue will be revealed long before E3 in June,” said Dawkins.

The current developer kit of Xbox 720 features a CPU with four hardware cored and 8 Gigabyte of RAM.

The same VapourMG magnesium, which was used in the development of Microsoft’s tablet Surface RT, will also be utilized for the manufacturing of new Xbox.
