Rumor: Next Xbox Will Have Two GPUs and Need Constant Internet Connection

According to VG247, the Next Xbox (720) will have two GPUs based on AMD's Southern Islands architect (the same GPU the PlayStation Orbis is rumored to have) but “not CrossFire or SLI.” Their sources also say it will have a Blu-ray drive (I doubt it, because if they do they will have to pay money to Sony for every console sold), a processor with four to six cores, a built in next generation Kinect, and just like the PlayStation Orbis is also rumored to have, you have to be connected to the Internet--if not it won't work--as an anti-piracy measure (it could also be used to block used-games).  

VG247 also said it will be released by Christmas 2013.

If this rumor and the PlayStation Orbis rumor are true it looks like the Next Xbox and PlayStation Orbis will be only 0.5 to 2 times more powerful than the Wii U.
