Microsoft Beefing Up Security? Guess Xbox 720 Is A Go
Microsoft has unofficially telegraphed the development of their nextgen console with the news that they’re currently in the process of severely ramping up internal security. Employees have received notification this week that new physical security measures, including the strict limiting of employee access at Xbox-related buildings, are being implemented at Microsoft HQ. Clearly, this is evidence that Xbox 720 is moving beyond the dev kit stage and into actual creation.
As Geek Wire notes, this level of security is unprecedented. What makes this interesting is that even in the memo, Microsoft isn’t saying diddly about just what IP they’re protecting. They still have not officially announced the new console nor have the said when they wish it to launch. Clearly, they know the news of heightened security would hit the internet fairly quickly, they’re keen to avoid another leak like this one, and would like to save the official announcement for the time of their choosing.
But come on; it’s Xbox 720. You know it. I know it. And now, Microsoft employees know it, but best pretend they don’t or they’re getting fired.
