The presentation is almost two years old but references newly introduced features like the Metro dashboard and SmartGlass.
If accurate, the next-gen console will support Blu-ray, native 3D output, multi-tasking apps, Kinect 2 and Kinect glasses.
The console promises a 6x performance boost from the Xbox 360, and either "six or eight ARM or x86 cores clocked at 2GHz each with 4GB of DDR4 memory alongside three PPC cores clocked at 3.2GHz each for backwards compatibility with existing Xbox 360 titles," says Verge.
Additionally, the console will have an "always-on" state, allowing for a quick return to gaming and background DVR function.
The Kinect Glasses will likely be the "breakthrough" device, as they are augmented reality Wi-Fi glasses similar to the Project Glass Google devices recently worn by Larry Page. The Glasses will launch in 2014, says the doc.
