The new video game console from Microsoft will be called simply "Xbox," according to Xbox World Magazine.

In a recent interview with CVG, Editor in chief Dan Dawkins spoke about the final issue of Xbox World Magazine and its cover story the next generation Xbox. He also discussed the systems potential features including, augmented reality headsets, directional sound and the next version of the Kinect.

"Xbox World has been at the cutting edge of Durango coverage for over 12 months," Dawkins told CVG. "Unless something really dramatic changes, everything we reveal in our penultimate issue will be revealed long before E3 in June."

The final issue of the magazine reveals that the system will simply be called "Xbox" and will use Blu-ray discs, directional audio, Kinect 2.0, AR glasses and a innovative controller, according to CVG.

CVG also writes that the new Xbox's Durango developer kits "boast a CPU with 'four hardware cores, each divided into four logical cores" and an impressive 8GB of RAM, XBW reports.'"

Xbox World Magazine has even created a mock version of the new system that uses many of the material found in current Windows products like the Surface tablet. The mock up is impressive and features a very sleek and modern look.

The mock features hidden USB slots, an easy to access HDD compartment and a touch-button Sync switch.  

"We built ours with the same glossy face and patented VapourMG magnesium alloy Microsoft uses for its Surface tablet, and modeled the silver band after its new 'Wedge' touch keyboard and flexible Arc Touch mouse," Xbox World Magazine writes, according to CVG. "The future will be black, sharp and curved."

The latest issue of the magazine is available for purchase online here or on Apple Newstand in the U.S. here. Remember these are just rumors for now and Microsoft has not confirmed or revealed anything about the new system.
