#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.

      It’s been about 6 or 7 years since the Xbox 360 came out it was time for an upgrade. I don’t mind if it’s not backwards compatible but if it is that would be a good bonus.

    The Xbox wasn’t that popular so it wasn’t a big deal to 99% of Xbox 360 owners. There also was no compelling alternative to Xbox 360 at the time and certainly not for some time afterwards in the same price range. Chances are PS4 and Xbox Next will be priced close, so Microsoft need to offer something the PS4 does not and so far even I am siding with the PS4 and I have been a huge Xbox fan.

    You are also forgetting that its going to be near impossible to have two Kinects in front of the TV at the same time, so its much more of a hassle than it was last generation to have two consoles hooked up at the same time.

    MS……Please do not disappoint us.

    With all the rumors that have been so negative regarding the next xbox, what you announce or show will dictate the console that people pre-order. I definitely have concerns about the next xbox, I hope my concerns are proven wrong.

    Xbox has had it good in the US but gamers are fickle, and will go where the best games, graphics, and features are. I could personally care less about media usage so i hope to see alot of about games and a powerful console that’s at least up to PS4 level. I would hate to think the PS4 will be more powerful, meaning most third party will develop for ir first and then port down. What a backward step that would be…………..

    One of my big concerns is regarding Kinect2.0, if it comes with the console, will all games require it? If so, for someone who doesnt play on a tv but uses a monitor, will they be able to play the games? IF friends are having a multiplayer xbox party, will we have to bring the kinect as well?

    Here’s your XBox ### itinerary… 1. Open with blitz of gameplay from past successful 360 games. 2. Talk about how awesome Xbox 360 was at length. 3. Introduce “the future” with a series of child actors using Kinect 2. 4. Show Forza, let developer discuss his unhealthy attraction to pistons. 5. Show pre-rendered Halo trailer. More Halo self indulgent discussion. 6. Show a long list of non-gaming partners like Comcast, HBO, CNN. Silently quip about the always-on requirement but using cryptic terms like “persistent experience from the moment you turn on your Xbox” 7. Blitz more trailers of shiny happy people dancing, cut in with random clips of main stream news outlets and Jimmy Falon talking about Xbox. 8. Close out with some exclusive trailer like CoD: Ghost or a new Gears.

    Major and Community,
    I have no problem with always on. The original xbox only had a broadband ethernet connection when 56k modems were still in use. “Always on” is a step towards total digital which like it or not will be the standard for the generation after this one.
    Second, the Durango (let’s use the actual name we have even if it’s the code name) is going to be a mutlimedia platform to compete with Apple but with the ability to play actual games. The Durango will match the power of the PS4 but will be an all around media platform. “Hardcore” gamers can sulk in their mom’s basement.
    Finally, I am still holding to the theory I have said all along. Microsoft views it’s competition as Apple not Sony. With this date of a reveal with the full line up revealed at E3, I would guess that it will be an Apple style roll out which means the next Xbox would be out around June 25, 2013. They get a jump out on Sony and are riding the PR wave from announce to E3 to release.

      I’m with you on most everything; except I think Microsoft will keep the core gamers in mind and the Durango will be a Gaming Console that has everything you need to be a multimedia platform…

      I also strongly disagree with the June rollout — or even a summer rollout — the Xbox is a gaming console and always will be — it may do other things, but it’s still mainly for games.

      Consoles always get released in the fall because that’s when it starts to get cold and people are looking for something to do inside. Also, they need the big hype to be there for Xmas.

      The earliest you will see the Durango rollout is going to be September; but I would be surprised if wasn’t released on November the 15th. The original Xbox was released Nov 15th — 15th is a Friday; and with a midnight launch events it allows people to take a 3 day weekend and enjoy…

    I can’t wait to see the next XBOX controller looks. I know it’ll be better than the kids PS4 controllers. PlayStation’s have small controllers with shapes, to help kids learn their shapes. Their controllers the size of the snes controllers; a perfect size for kids hands. XBOX controllers are a perfect size for adult hands; and Microsoft don’t use no shapes for kids.
