Sounds a bit weird, seeing that likely a large amount of consoles have already been manufactured at previous specs. Something like GPU clock speed can be tweaked on a software level. Even RAM on PC could be easily switched, but I believe consoles have their RAMs soldered.
I hope it's true and apparently they have a good reason to believe it would be true, but from a manufacturing PoV it seems quite late to make the change. Hope it's true though!

My initial reaction was to call BS. because of the unboxing video
In said video the only component that doesn't get mentioned is the RAM. Maybe that's a gamescom bombshell??
Does indeed add fuel to the rumour mill.

Yeah, that would be a nice bit of info to release at Gamescom.
IDK why I'm at a point where I am thirsty for XB1 news... good, bad, and rumors, I'll take what I can get.

I'm very skeptical, but if the rumor turns out to be true, I never want to hear a PS4 fanboy speak ever again. They would have no valid arguments left.

With self publishing and an open app store, any developer can create a unique app that leverages the Kinect for the living-room. We might be seeing entire security systems in the app store. This extra power would be good for games AND apps.

As said, I sure hope it's true, who wouldn't want 12gb instead of 8gb? :D

I'm sure 8 GB will be fine. Both the One and PS4 have about the same amount of usable RAM, so I wonder if there would have even be an improvement with extra RAM in the ONE, seeing as how devs often code to the lowest denominator and port to the others.
