New Xbox 'Features Mystery Stripes'
Next-gen console dev kits spark rumours among gamers...
The next-generation Xbox games console could come adorned with go-faster stripes if industry reports are to be believed.
Kotaku claims that the Xbox 720 development kits which have been sent out so far come with a striking design featuring black and white intersecting stripes.
The games website quotes four individual sources as confirming that dev kits for the new device - codenamed Durango - feature the unusual designs.
And there has been speculation that the stripes could be different on each - allowing Microsoft to trace the source of any leaked pictures which might emerge.
Another theory mooted among gamers is that the stripes could provide a visual anchor point for the Kinect controller.
And it is also possible that the design is only for pre-release versions of the console.
