Submission + - Xbox 720 will not play old Xbox 360 games (

An anonymous reader writes: A leading video game magazine is reporting that Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox 720 gaming console is not going to be compatible with your current Xbox games. Not only will the Xbox 720 outdate your older games from the Xbox 360 console, but an Internet connection will be required to play the forthcoming console as well. Also specs that have been reported by Edge concerning the new console are that it will feature an AMD 8-core x64 processor, with a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics solution and 8-gigabytes of RAM. And, supposedly, these aren’t rumors, but are “confirmed,” according to Edge’s source.
