Microsoft next-gen Xbox details leak

Redmond rapidly requests removal

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

An allegedly leaked Microsoft presentation which details next-gen Xbox plans, has been removed at the request of the software company's lawyers, adding weight its authenticity.

The 56-page document claims the next Xbox will feature a Blu-ray Disc optical drive, support for augmented reality glasses and the second-generation of Kinect, all for a retail price of $300 (£191).

If the plans are true, the 'Xbox 720' will roll out in 2013.

The paper also says the console will feature graphic capability 4-6x better than the current hardware and goes on to detail tech such as Smart Glass, which was announced by Microsoft at E3, long after this particular document first surfaced.

In fact, the presentation dates back to August 2010, so we'd assume the company has packed much more up its next-gen sleeve by now.

While the Redmond firm has had the documents removed at the request of its law team - Covington & Burling - the full 56-page next-gen Xbox document can still be snagged over at Game Informer. ®
