Rumor Alert: Xbox 720

Word travels faster than Sonic in the gaming world, so when former Microsoft executive Joachim Kempin leaked some information about the next-gen version of Xbox this week, the news spread like wildfire on Twitter. Unfortunately, with rumors that Xbox 720 will block second hand gaming and always be connected to the internet, the Twitterverse remains unhappy – and we can’t blame them!

We’re looking forward to another exciting recap next week! Anything in particular you’d like us to discuss? Tell us what’s on your mind – we want to hear #TheSkinny!
