  1. Xbox 720
    The new Xbox 720 Console has been rumored to have many new features, such as: One time activation code for 720 games, Siri voice detection, ability to recommend certain games depending on group size, requires internet connection to function, x6 performance increase, support for blue-ray, ability to record TV content in the background, Kinect 2

    Siri Voice Detection:It is rumored that the new Xbox 720 will have Siri Voice Detection, this voice detection has the “wake on voice" -- which would activate the system upon hearing the user say "Wake up, Xbox" -- as well as the ability to interpret natural language and turn your speech into text. Users may also be able to automatically pick up video files where they left off by simply asking the console to play a film, and, with the speech-to-text feature, users can send each other voice messages directly over the Xbox.
    One Time Game Activation:New Xbox 720 Games are rumored to have a one time activation code for all 720 games. This feature will not allow you share/trade games with your friends without trading the entire console. Also from what I’ve found out, you will not be able to trade your 720 games into GameStop for another game and/or money.
    Recommending Games: The sensors that come with the Xbox are also rumored to have the ability to determine the amount of people in the room, who is playing and suggest multiplayer games and game modes.
    Internet Connection Required: Any voice recognition/ detection abilities require an internet connection to function (with the exception of windows speech recognition defaulted in all windows computers). So what that means is, if you would like to use your Xbox in any way you must have an active internet connection to use your Console.
    Performance, Support for Blue-Ray: The Xbox 720 is rumored for a 6x performance increase with the Xbox 720, as well as true 1080p output, full support for native 3D output and glasses. You can also play Blue-Ray DVD’s, similar to PlayStation 3. Microsoft appears to have been debating whether to use six or eight ARM or x86 cores clocked at 2GHz each with 4GB of DDR4 memory alongside three PPC cores clocked at 3.2GHz each for backwards compatibility with existing Xbox 360 titles.
    Kinect 2: The Kinect feature will have higher accuracy, stereo imaging, improved voice recognition, support for four-player tracking, an improved RGB camera, dedicated hardware processing, four player gaming, and a pair of augmented reality Kinect Glasses, which are apparently similar to Google's Project Glass.
    Ability to Record TV: The Xbox 720 Console also may have the ability to record Tv shows that are playing on Dish, Direct Tv, and other television providers. You may view your recorded shows under your library at Xbox startup or “Wake Up” (assuming the voice detection rumor is true).
    Everything Posted in this post are only Rumors, None of it may be true but I am not held responsible for any false information provided.
