Leaked Xbox 720 pricing and details likely real

BGR: Purported details surrounding Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox video game and home entertainment console emerged earlier this week when a 56-page document leaked onto the Web. The supposed internal document pointed to a $299 price point for Microsoft’s “Xbox 720,” and it also outlined specs for the unit, including Blu-ray support and true 1080p output, as well as a new Kinect 2 motion and voice-based controller. The authenticity of the leaked file was questionable, however Microsoft’s actions in the days that followed suggest that it is indeed the real deal.

The story is too old to be commented.

If its at this price point, Xbox 720 will sell like crack. Forcing Sony to come with it with the next PS! I love competition..

Price means nothing, when cost is 500 dollar, but sell it for 300 dollar.

And the next generation systems competition will BEGINS next year!!!! MS vs Sony! Which next generation systems will come on top? Next year will be the year for MS and Sony to go head to head at E3 (2013!)! And I can not wait!

Nah. I say $399 to sell it at a profit. Other than that though I totally believe the leaked documents.

I have to say that $399 seems to be the right price for the hardware that they are talking about.

The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) is the industry consortium that develops and licenses Blu-ray Disc technology and is responsible for establishing format standards and promoting business opportunities for Blu-ray Disc. The BDA is divided into three levels of membership: the Board of Directors, Contributors, and General Members.[1]
The "Blu-ray Disc founder group" was started on May 20, 2002 by MIT and nine leading electronic companies: Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Thomson, LG Electronics, Hitachi, Sharp, and Samsung.[2] In order to enable more companies to participate, it announced in May 2004 that it would form the Blu-ray Disc Association, which was inaugurated on October 4, 2004.

They're going to get something out of it.
