Xbox 720 leaks are a big concern for Microsoft, so the company is reportedly increasing security at its key Redmond office.

CVG reports on a Geekwire claim that Microsoft will boost its security measures to “an unprecedented level”, in a bid to plug any potential leaks.

The report also states that Microsoft employees at Redmond have been notified of the new measures, which include physical security checks, limited employee access to offices and more. Business visitors are allegedly being asked to -pre-register their trip to the studio online and be escorted by an employee at all times.

When Xbox 720 will launch is still up for debate, but something is definitely happening at Microsoft HQ. More as we get it.
