The Xbox 720 Documents Microsoft Doesn't Want You To See

These documents supposedly detail the next Xbox ("Xbox 720"), the Kinect 2, virtual reality glasses codenamed "Fortaleza," along with the rest of Microsoft's vision for the living room over the next four years. It looks pretty wild.

A year-by-year roadmap of how Microsoft apparently plans to get you to wear goofy glasses like Google's Project Glass — I guess there's officially a worldwide conspiracy — but notice that step 1 is happening right now, along with 2, sorta.

Though legit looking, they could be fake, since they simply appeared on the internet with no source —  but it's curious that a law firm who reps Microsoft's been running around getting them pulled them from the web. Scribd won't even let you upload the document anymore. Which typically doesn't happen with totally fake leaks that have no basis in reality. And even if they are real, plans change, especially over the course of years — so it might not perfectly map out to what actually happens in reality. There are 56 slides in total, and if you'd like to download the whole thing for yourself, you can snag them here, here, or here. It's a fun little tour, fake or not.
