Next-Gen Xbox Reveal Confirmed For May 21st

"The Beginning Of A New Generation Of Games, TV & Entertainment"

After a truly awkward couple of months, Microsoft has finally set a date to reveal the Xbox 360's successor. It looks like Paul Thurrott was right on the money.

"On Tuesday May 21st, we’ll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment," explains Microsoft PR man Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb in a new blog post. 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."

"On that day, we’ll share our vision for Xbox, and give you a real taste of the future. Then, 19-days later at theElectronic 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."

We're thrilled as well, partly because Microsoft have been at the mercy of wild speculation and damaging rumours due to their deafening silence. We'll bring you the news as we hear it, and round up all those tasty rumours for you nearer the time.

So, folks, it's time for some speculation on our part. What do you want to see from the reveal event - both in terms of hardware, features and launch lineup?

Better late than never, I guess.

I also find it amusing that he lists games first in his "games, TV, and entertainment", yet when you fire up the current machine, you're spammed with ads and interactivity bull first.:)

I hope they don't go with calling it the "Xbox 720" - it'll be like they're just going in circles.

I'll get me coat.

After months (years?) of rumours, and a tradition in the industry of accurate leaks in the week before a reveal, I'm amazed we've heard pretty much nothing on Microsoft's upcoming machine in the last week or two...
