#XboxReveal

On Tuesday May 21st, we’ll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment. On that day, we’ll be holding a special press event on the Xbox campus and we invite you to join us via the live global stream that will be available on Xbox LIVE and Xbox.com. If you are in the US or Canada, you can also watch the broadcast on Spike TV.

On that day, we’ll share our vision for Xbox, and give you a real taste of the future. Then, 19-days later at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, we’ll continue the conversation and showcase our full lineup of blockbuster games.

We are thrilled to pull back the curtain and reveal what we’ve been working on.

A New Generation Revealed
Xbox Campus, Redmond WA
Tuesday, May 21st @ 1p ET/10a PT/17:00 GMT

Follow me on Twitter where I’ll share updates leading up to the event.

      Only one problem, the developer that made the PGR series was shut down by Activision a few years ago. So probably not going to happen. A Forza title is much more likely.

      Sony hasn’t shown us the future. The PS4 specs out about the same as one of today’s mid range gaming PCs. Hopefully MS paid attention to the PS4’s lackluster specs and will bring out a true next generation system. They have an opertunity to leap frog way past Sony.

    Am I the only one that doesn’t really care about backward compatibility? It’s not like my 360 will disappear when I buy the new Xbox. And how often do you really play original Xbox games these days?

    Personally, I still do Halo 1 LANs every chance I get, and I appreciate the ability to be able to play it on my 360, but it wouldn’t be a big deal if I had to use my old Xboxes.

    I own a 360 and Xbox sucks, plain and simple. There’s no games to play. Literally the only games people play online are cod and halo, and both are so played out and boring now.
    Unless 360 is going to be the most amazing thing, with the best graphics and the most games I’m going with ps4.

    Seriously MS/Xbox. I want a proper Perfect Dark and Crackdown, you guys are sitting on dormant IP’s and it makes no sense at all. Give these terrific IP’s the same attention and dev detail you would Gears or Halo.

    You need to really drop the restrictions for approving games for your system. It’s ancient and really bottlenecks devs and publishers trying to put a game on your system. You really need to adopt a Steam like submission or what Sony is planning on doing with their PS4.

    For this next system you really need to emphasize the Indie games. I know this is a long stretch and probably won’t be true but the Indie scene on your system was such a highlight for me. I would love to see it expanded on and made bigger.

        That basically means that the games can be locked to one account and cannot be resold. Also, if the game company turns off their authentication server, the game is now useless and cannot be played.
