The Xbox 720 could attempt to use the 3D Kinect 2.0 camera in order to achieve further virtual reality and augmented reality gameplay functions. It is currently being expected to see a reveal this April 27, 2013. If all signs point towards what could happen, the Kinect 2 could be implanted directly in the Xbox 720 box itself, rather than be a separate add-on hardware as seen with Kinect original on Xbox 360.
Microsoft has recently been subject to government requests for information. 75,000+ members of Xbox Live, Skype, Hotmail, MSN, and other Microsoft services including Office and Windows and in each case 100% of the time complete information profiles of these individuals were given to the government. Images, voice chats, private messages, and even video chats and Xbox Live gamertags were given upon request as Microsoft submits 100% transparency to the United States.
Persistent rumors (which may or may not be true) also suggest that Microsoft’s Xbox 720 will require always-online internet connection, and will render used games useless. Their cloud-based system will resemble the Blizzard Diablo III system with Battle.net accounts being the key to play the game with while discs and downloads of the entire games’ files are useless without an active connection to Microsoft servers. The data is rumored to be transferred by digital or blu-ray format but the key is what you are really buying, which will be associated with your Xbox Live account.
