    VGLeaks: First look at Durango XDK (always connected, kinect required, must install)

    http://www.vgleaks.com/durango-xdk/

    - Always on, Always connected
    - Low powered mode
    - Kinect sold with every console, wider FOV, no motors, better tracking
    - Kinect is required to be plugged in
    - Low latency controller with "improved ergonomics", simplified interaction with console OS
    - Bluray drive
    - All games must be installed on HDD [you can start playing few secs after installation starts], game data streaming from optical disc not supported
    - Only digital audio out
    Gaf thread jack

    All games must be installed? Is this a console or a PC?

    Guess this was where they have been pulling some of their rumours from all this time. At least we know a source now

    That screen is too low res to read for me but from the written info it sounds like a perfect storm of next-gen horror stories. Mandatory install for every game... really?

    I wonder why not stream from optical disc. Is it some plan about "second hand" games?

    Most likely. I can see it now.
    XBOX - This game cannot be played because someone already installed the information off this disc on another XBOX.

    It sounds like Microsoft would be going in the complete opposite direction of Sony since the PS4 does not require an internet connection.

    I reckon the game stores will be in on it as well. You can trade in your now useless disc into GAME/gamestop for a few pennies then they re-sell it with a validation code from the publisher. Everyone wins except the consumer

    Nobody bother to read the bit about Kinect being handled by the system, not impacting on game app at all..
    That's pretty much confirmation that there is a system CPU, independent of the game system CPU's.

    Actually it says it will
    always maintain a network connection so that the console software and games are always current.
    With the "always on" "always connected" design, users will quickly and easily enjoy their connected console entertainment experiences with no waiting for the console to restart or install updates.
    That does NOT mean an online connection is required to play, they are merely stating that the network will always be checking for updates.


    Not sure where people get mandatory online from.

    Who was HONESTLY excited for the new Xbox, anyways?
    I mean, yeah I prefer XBL to PSN just for the simple fact of Xboxs' party system and ease of being with your friends online. I still wish the PSN would work like that. I'm hoping that the PS4 takes influence from the Xbox 360 and makes it more user friendly when it comes to parties. I may buy an Xbox 360 right now just so I can play with my friends easier.

    But this is all besides the point:
    Kinect always, ALWAYS needing to be connected? That's such bull! Kinect is garbage and motion control is a gimmick and always will be. True gamers don't want or need it, I think they're incorporating it just to make 'family sales'. Because let's face it, who uses motion control and thinks its a contributor to a fun gaming experience? Children and families. I think this alone let's us all know that the Durango, 720, whatever the final name will be, is and will be marketed for the family demographic, rather than the hardcore gamers.

    We'll see though, it's too early to decide on what your opinion will be.

    Same here. Always connected is actually a good thing IMO. So far I don't see anything that's a deal breaker. It actually sounds pretty good if it's all true.

    Having always connected connect is no different than having an always connected video signal or xbox controller, its part of the system, if it comes with it, it has to be connected.

    It doesn't mean devs have to use it at all, although knowing its is on all machines, and that it hold zero impact on game resources may open it up (if its fast/high res enough).

    Does always connected mean "online ONLY" (aka Simcity)? If so, yuck.
    But the Kinect mandatory makes sense and is not too bad. I mean, the PS4 controller will more or less require the PS Eye2.
    And the mandatory install wouldn't be bad if you don't need the Bluray to be inside the console to play. This would actually be awesome.

    if not, then yeah, it's pretty fail.

    In either case gentlemen/women; these are going to be confirmed/debunked by the time MS comes to stage.

    No, it means background transfers. Not online only.

    Oh cool. So kinda like the PS4 then - always downloading updated etc. Not bad at all then. Though they needed to be more clear with that.

    They also need to show the hardware. Otherwise the console will fail and no one will care.

    Microsoft’s next console will require an Internet connection in order to function, ruling out a second-hand game market for the platform. A new iteration of Xbox Live will be an integral part of Microsoft’s next console, while improved Kinect hardware will also ship alongside the unit.
    After their sources checked out with the ps4, I have no reason to doubt them with the 720 rumors.
