Xbox 720 "Aligned" in Tech with PS4 Says Ubisoft
According to Ubisoft Montreal leader, Yannis Mallat, the new Xbox console that we're calling the Xbox 720 because everybody else is, will be "aligned with what Sony announced" in terms of its broad capabilities.

Yes, that sounds like the sort of "I am not sticking up for either camp so I'm going to say something utterly vanilla here..." statement that we'd make if we were a Tier 1 publisher who didn't want to piss a currently quite powerful platform holder off. But there is more.

According to OXM, Yannis also said that, "It's going to be connected. It's going to be social. It's going to be immersive. It's going to be interactive."

Erm, so, no really not much more at all. He does, however, tell Eurogamer that, "Let's state the obvious: the easy and immediate thing is going to be the graphics. There are some mind-blowing graphics right now on our next-gen technology, both on Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed. That will be the entry door for anyone, even for the mainstream. It's really going to be amazing. Trust me on this one.

"That being said, the connected aspects and the social components will be what will define the difference between a next-gen experience and a current-gen experience. And we're eager to be able to talk about that and show that when we're ready."

So, in short, the new Xbox will be connected and have graphics. CANNOT WAIT.

Seriously, we're expecting to hear launch news very soon indeed.
