Rumor: Images of supposed Durango Alpha Kit show Blu-Ray, Kinect on next generation Xbox
I have got to stress to you guys to take this with the biggest grain of salt you’ve ever seen in your life. VG Leaks is at it again, this time showing off pictures of what they say is the DevKit for the next-generation Xbox system, Durango.
Durango has been the rumored codename for the Xbox 3 for some time now. VG Leaks has in the past “revealed” the specs of the Wii U and other information. I will come right out and say I am already skeptical of VG Leaks.
The images they posted show what looks like a normal PC case but they say is the Alpha Kit for the next Xbox. On the back of the case you can see a Kinect port as well as a port for an Xbox controller.
Another image shows the words “Durango” on a television screen while revealing the fact that this PC in the picture (whether it is the next Xbox or not) has a Blu-Ray drive.
Could VG Leaks really have pictures of the next generation Xbox? I guess it is possible, though I do find it odd that with strict NDA’s over information on the Wii U that Nintendo never really cared that VG Leaks was supposedly “leaking” information about their next home console. So that makes me question the legitimacy of these leaks.
Nonetheless I don’t think anyone is surprised by the idea of the next Xbox using Kinect and Blu-Ray. Microsoft will likely continue its Kinect push through next-gen and Blu-Ray is the smartest choice for gaming going forward as far disc storage is concerned.
What do you make of this? Legit or bogus?
