I'm not taking rumours as fact, however, when rumours are repeated over and over again by multiple sources, they usually turn out to be true - theres no smoke without fire.
Reading this thread and more so the comments on today's Xbox rumours on front page is amusing. People seem to be taking all these rumours as fact.
For example, anyone who visits this site regularly would have known a lot about the PS4 WAAAAAAY before it was revealed (controller with touchpad/move functionality, specs, etc).
If the new xbox doesnt have Kinect 2.0, DRM/always-on, a used-game block and if it does have backwards compatibility i'll be very surprised......
