Photos of the next generation Xbox development kits have appeared online. A user named DaE tried to sell the kits for $10,000 on the AssemblerGames Forums. While at first met with much criticism developers who are currently working on next-gen titles have confirmed there legitimacy.Not much is shown besides the standard looking black box, the Durango code name and applications titled "D3D11Game1" and "NuiView," the latter said to be “a simple tool for rendering camera views and data from an attached Kinect peripheral.” according to Digital Foundry. Though the hardware is said to sport many common PC ports.
DaE states that the latest hardware, which was sent out in February, include Intel CPUs, an NVIDA graphics card, 8GB of RAM and a 64-bit operating system. It was previously believed that next-gen consoles would be moving towards AMD graphics though without any official statements from Microsoft there's no telling if this is a sign of what will be used in the Next Xbox.
343 Industries, Crystal Dynamics and id Software are just a few of the developers who mentioned that they are working on next-gen titles and the next iteration of the Xbox is expected to be revealed and released next year.
