Lot of talk saying this document is likely from 2009-2010. That said, $299 would be freakin' brilliant.

Idk im calling BS with the Blu-ray. Isnt that Sony's invention? I doubt they would be willing to give it to thier competators video game system. Didnt the Wii U have rumours going around about it have blu-ray as well?

Agreed, new console, set at a medium price point for what is already out? Sounds like it would sell a lot. The RemoteFX bit, to me, sounds a bit fishy, while it's already being done by services like OnLive, I really didn't expect consoles to try and jump into it so fast, since general internet speed doesn't really cut it for twitch gaming from what I last read.

MetallicaDragon Well, Sony won't give it to MS for free but Microsoft can pay royalties to use the technology... I think.

MetallicaDragon If I recall sony doesn't have a patent on blu-ray seeing as other manufacturers make blu-ray.

That said this seems too good to be true. But that's just the pessimist in me talking.

Eh.. Microsoft can use it. Blu-Ray was the invention of several companies and no one has a true patent on it. Yes the name is copyright and so is the technology but it's pretty open as far as technology goes.

Let me just say if this is true than Nintendo are *bleep*ed.. The Wii U is rumoured to cost 30,000 Yen which is £280 or $400. If this is true then the Xbox 720 is 23,000 Yen, £190 or $299 and that will get you a console 6x more powerful than Xbox 360 and gets you Kinect 2.0.

Now what makes me believe it is one Microsoft got lawyers involved as you don't do that if it's bullshit and two Microsoft just like Sony are fans of selling at a loss, this could easily be a $400-$500 system being sold at $300.

Well, the leaked document also says the "Wii 2" price is around $249.

Whether the document is real or fake, this kind of information is likely removed because it could either provide false information or as what's suggested.. be an actual leak. Wouldn't want it to float on the internet in both cases if I was Microsoft so I don't think it adds to the credibility.

Does it have a 'full backward compatibility' with 360 games?

Looks fake. But if it isn't...wow, only $299. I thought the Wii U might be that much, and the next Xbox/PS3 being $400.
