Xbox 720 aka Durango Rumors Have Gamers on Alert

Sometime this year Microsoft will unveil the new Xbox 720 aka Durango. Leaked information and rumors say that the new Xbox requires games to be installed on the HDD and that the box is always online. Games would need to be activated online.

Some leaked information suggests that you would not be able to sell used games. This would be a major sales blocker as games cost a small fortune ($60). If gamers cannot trade used games to recoup some of the cost, they will not by the Xbox 720.

A game activation system that prevents used game sales would require cutting the cost of games by at least 50%. 

I expect though, that Microsoft will not change the current system. So keep cool and look forward to what the new Xbox 720 will offer.

Details on the leaked info can be found on VGLeaks . Via TheVerge .

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
