IGN is reporting that the electronic company that built the original Xbox and the Xbox 360 has already begun building the new Xbox 720. And even though Xbox representatives are not saying anything, it kinda makes sense for them to start now as to allow the top game developers access so they too can start developing games for the new system. This new Xbox is said to be revolutionary with its GPU based on ATI’s Radeon HD 6670, 1080p HD output, and SSD hard drives. Speculation puts it as being up to be 6 times faster than the Xbox 360. I can only hope the games will be at least 5 times cooler than they are now so I can justify spending the hundreds of dollars I will spend on this console.
