Xbox 720 is now all but confirmed as some inside sources with knowledge of exactly when Microsoft plans to reveal its new console have indicated the Xbox 720 name and that it will be announced in less than two months.
According to a report from VG24/7 today, some inside sources have confirmed that the Xbox 720 will indeed be unveiled this coming April 27th.
This is not surprising that this information has cropped up so soon after the PlayStation 4 was announced.
Many believed things would not stay quiet long before Microsoft decided to fire back and perhaps this is their unofficial way of doing so until they are officially ready to announce, which seems to now be April 27th.
For those who are wondering, some recent reports have surfaced that indicate information regarding the Xbox 720's GPU.
Xbox 720's GPU is allegedly capable of supporting a Direct3D 11, which is the API that powers the DirectX 11 in the most current gaming PCs.
The new GPU has been described as "a departure from previous console generations both in raw performance and in structure."
Current video game systems like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 do not currently support Direct3D 11.
The full report that was released is very detailed and can get technical, but it does mentioned several already surfaced specs and details regarding the Xbox 720.
For example, there supposedly is a 32MB of ESRAM instead of virtual memory, which should enable the Xbox 720 to surpass certain limitations of the Xbox 360.
Things are shaping up rather interestingly in regards to the Xbox 720, especially since most early reports have put the PS4 out as the more powerful system.
Perhaps Microsoft will also answer the question as to whether or not the Xbox 720 will be banning used games or not.
