Xbox caused quite a stir in the gaming world with its powerful and user friendly features. It had almost everything what a gamer can ask for. Rumours about the latest version of Xbox have been doing the rounds for a while now.
The new version is named as Xbox 720. The gaming console is sure to have some amazing features. The system will be enabled with DVR or digital video recording. One amazing feature the system is going to have is that it will come with a tablet type control system to assist the game controls. It also acts as a second screen for gaming contents.
The touch screen interface tablet that comes with the console will be the main selling point of the system. It may come with a high definition touch screen display which will be coming in very handy if you want to enjoy games, videos and other media content in it. It is also speculated to feature Windows 8 interface. If this is true then we can expect pretty powerful controller that can double as an additional entertainment system.
The touch screen controls in it will offer an entirely different experience for the gamers. Even if the game is played in another display the in-game controls and options can be seen through the tablet and this offers ease of game play along with a real-life gaming experience. The tablet controller can even be used to play mini games. Xbox live contents and game plays can be streamed to it so that you can take it to another room if required and still enjoy the contents.
The control set up will be provided with kinetic motion sensor. That is the gamer can navigate and proceed through the game by utilizing kinetic controls like tilting the controller up or down or sideways. All these specifications are expected and the company officials have not offered a clear confirmation on the above.
Xbox 720 is expected to be introduced some time during the consumer electronics show. The officials have kept the tight lip approach because they might still have some more amazing features under the hood and may be waiting for the right time to announce them so as to take the gaming world by surprise. Still the tech world expects some more specifications and probably a price quote during this week.
