Vgleaks has recently released some leaked information about the next Xbox (Codename Durango). Besides providing the technical details and system block diagram, the report also indicates that Kinect technology will be build directly into Xbox 720. Such a technology will ensure that every single owner of the new Xbox will automatically be a Kinect owner as well, so Kinect games will be able to reach more people.
