Rare, others already prototyping games for the Xbox 720 According to the latest issue of Xbox World magazine, developers Rare, Lionhead and Turn 10 are already prototyping new games for the "Xbox 720," or whatever the console will eventually be named.
"Rare, Lionhead and Turn 10 all have teams in place too. Rare, we hear, are even prototyping ideas for a new 'mature' title," reads the report.

One source says Microsoft will unveil the console at next year's E3 event, for a launch in the holiday season of 2013.

Turn 10, the makers of Forza, have remained on a two year schedule for their games and a late 2013 launch for Forza 5 could perfectly coincide with the release of a new console.

The same goes for Fable and Rare's new "mature" game for the upcoming console.

yes xyqo you are right and as for the rare bit making a mature game please let it be a remake of killer instinct cause I've been dying to play it on a console with updated graphics

A "mature" game...I wonder what that actually means? Will it be a "mature" rating, or will it be Porno + Kinect?

Just a codename for us to be able to refer to it as something other than "the next Xbox/Microsoft console." Same reason the Playstation Vita was the NGP or whatever it was. And the Wii was the Revolution.
