Want to know secret details about Microsoft Corp.'s (
) upcoming Xbox 720? Too bad, says Microsoft.
A small army of lawyers at Covington & Burling LLP, among the international law firms whom Microsoft employs, have taken to the internet waging war against a documents leak which hit the web over the weekend. Takedown notices are flying, removing copies of the document on DropBox,
, and more.
, a Czech tech news site also received a notice. Microsoft's lawyers
Microsoft has received information that the domain listed above, which appears to be on servers under your control, is offering unlicensed copies of, or is engaged in other unauthorized activities relating to copyrighted works published by Microsoft.
1. Identification of copyrighted works:
Copyright owner: ?
2. Copyright infringing material or activity found at the following location(s):
Google Inc. (
) claims Microsoft is one of the most legally active companies in terms of takedown notices, requesting that 448,236 URLs be killed this month alone. Some of those are due to its efforts to
stomp out piracy
. But others come from more questionable applications, such as trying to silence leaks.
The leaked Xbox 720 slides describe Kinect 2 and the "Fortaleza project"
a Google-glasses like effort
that could bring augmented reality to the Xbox 720 as early as 2014. Here are a few of the verboeten slides:

#1 it makes absolutely no fucking sense
#2 it makes absolutely no fucking sense
#3 it makes absolutely no fucking sense
Why not Xbox 361? Why not Xbox 3? Why not Xbox next? Whose brilliant idea was to add 360 twice and come up with "Xbox 720".
Man, I really can't wait for PS6. Yes, that's what the next Playstation will be called. Well, it makes just as much fucking sense as calling the 360's successor 720. This doc is a fake and was planted by MS to throw the press and competitors off.

Why was the second Xbox called the Xbox 360 in the first place? Wasn't Xbox 2 good enough?
