A document that leaked today purportedly reveals the future of the Xbox platform until 2015, including details about future direction and products. The biggest details include an advanced Kinect system that includes personal glasses, as well as consideration of a buyout of OnLive's cloud gaming service.
The document describes a 2013 launch for the platform, with extra features being rolled out slowly over the ensuing years. In 2014 the document says they'll roll out a new glasses-based Kinect system similar to Google Glass. The image above shows a cowboy character busting through the screen with all players being able to view it regardless of their position.
Perhaps the most tantalizing tidbit, however, says that the system will only cost $299, including a form of Kinect. Few of these details are groundbreaking, and most fall relatively close to what we'd expect from the next console.
This is all firmly in the realm of rumors right now though. We don't yet know whether this is an enormous leak that somehow snuck out of Microsoft HQ in Redmond, WA. Or if this is an incredibly elaborate hoax. Normally we'd wonder why anybody would spend such a colossal amount of time perpetrating a hoax like this (drawn images and all), but we've ceased to be amazing by the Internet's ridiculousness.
The original document has been removed already, but you can head to Ars Technica for a more full run down on the system specs and specifics of the document.
