The Xbox 720 Is Gaining Heat

Yeah, that's true, according to the sources of IGN the Xbox 720 graphic chip sets will be started producing in the end of 2012 and will probably hit the store shelves in 2013 in late October or early November. It is also rumoured that the Xbox 720 will be six times as fast as the current Xbox 360.

As mentioned by IGN,
Following initial reports from tech blogs Fudzilla and SemiAccurate, our sources have confirmed that mass production of the system's GPU will indeed begin by the end of 2012 but will not, however, be based on AMD's 7000 series Southern Islands GPU. Instead, the processor will be derived from the 6000 series, which was introduced last year. More specifically, it will be akin to the Radeon HD 6670, which offers support for DirectX11, multidisplay output, 3D and 1080p HD output. The chip currently has a market price of upwards of $79.99.

The Xbox 720 is also expected to be ahead of the Wii U, Wii's upcoming buzz. The Xbox 720's graphics will be 20% better than the Wii U.

I also hope that the Xbox 720 will not include the following controller:
