According to VGLeaks, the Durango XDK contains information that may shed some light on the constant internet connection the Xbox 720 is rumored to require.

There is no way of telling whether this information is accurate or not. If it does prove to be genuine, there is a chance that the information may be out of date.

According to the Durango Hardware Overview document, “the console will be ready instantly when users want to play, and will always maintain a network connection so that the console software and games are always current.”

“With this ‘Always On, Always Connected’ design, users will quickly and easily enjoy their connected entertainment experiences, with no waiting for the console to restart or install updates.”

The Durango will also apparently come with a Kinect “which will be required for the system to operate.”

The hard drive capacity has not been detailed but the Durango will be completely dependent on the hard drive as “play from the optical disc will not be supported.”

Microsoft is expected to reveal their next-gen console over the next couple of months.
