Xbox 720 is based on Windows 8 core

Microsoft’s next-gen system will be based on Windows 8 core, it has been revealed.

Paul Thurrot, who accurately predicted the May 21st reveal date for the Next Xbox, has mentioned on Twitter that the console will use Windows 8 in some capacity.

It isn’t a new thing though. We had also posted ages ago that the Xbox 720 will be running on Windows 8.

This move makes the console in sync with PC gaming but it’s not clear whether Microsoft would open it up to that extent. The console will have a lot of features that the OS brings to the table, so you can expect some great graphics and a fast kernel, which means faster boot times.

Check out this tweet below. The next Xbox will be revealed on May 21st, Microsoft has confirmed.
