Xbox 360 successor to be six times more powerful

According to IGN, a new rumour has surfaced about the upcoming successor to the Xbox 360. IGN has stated that their sources have confirmed that the production of the systems GPU will begin before the year is out. It will be based on AMD’s 6000 series, which was introduced last year.

To put this into perspective, based on these rumours, the Xbox 360 successor will be six times more powerful than the current Xbox 360 and roughly 20% more powerful than Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U.

Also, more rumours have been floating around suggesting that it may use Blu-ray discs and may sport some kind of ‘anti-used-game’ technology. This could be a real downer for those who want to resell, or lend a game to someone else. However, it also poses the possibility that games will have a lower price tag because of this. Only time will tell what Xbox plans to do with its future console.
