Xbox World magazine goes all out with 8-page feature on Xbox 8 including specs, mocks Xbox World, which is set to cease publication after their December issue, has published a large 8-page feature showing off "everything" they know about the upcoming Xbox 8/Xbox 720/Xbox Next/Xbox/Durango.
The magazine has a good track record for Microsoft Xbox leaks, but with no official confirmation until next year, at least, take everything written with a grain of salt.

Says editor-in-chief Dan Dawkins (via CVG): "Xbox World has been at the cutting edge of Durango coverage for over 12 months. Unless something really dramatic changes, everything we reveal in our penultimate issue will be revealed long before E3 in June."

The mag speculates Microsoft will name the upcoming console simply "Xbox," similar to how Apple has stopped numbering their iPad tablets.

With its release, the new Xbox will introduce Kinect 2.0, Blu-ray support, directional audio, a TV output and input, a new 'innovative controller' and finally, augmented reality glasses (to be released in 2014/15).

Current dev kits "boast a CPU with four hardware cores, each divided into four logical cores" and 8GB of RAM, says the magazine.

Finally, the company created a mock of the upcoming console based on Microsoft's new products and industry sources.

Very ugly mockup, but then that has lots of time to change (just look at some of the early PS3 concepts). Odd that it has TV input but apparently no cablecard support. Not sure how much value support for antenna TV adds to it. Maybe it has something like an IR blaster...but if you need a cablebox anyway, it adds little value to the Xbox. I sure hope they keep some kind of numbering system on it if only to remove confusion.

Looks a lot better than the classic 360 IMO.
Looking forward to it though, if only to narrow the technological rift between current consoles and PCs so more cross-platforms work out better.

Calling it just "Xbox" is a terrible idea. It will cause mass confusion when trying to do internet searches. Most people already use the term Xbox for their 360 and then theres the original Xbox too. Trying to differentiate which console is showing up in search results will be a huge pain.
