Just a few months ago, Sony revealed their upcoming PlayStation 4 for the holiday season. Microsoft has had rumors and speculation thrown at it for a while now but still has made no official statement as to their next generation system. That will all chance in just a month as Major Nelson has announced the date for the company's reveal.
The "A New Generation Revealed" press event in Redmond, Washington is described as follows:
"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.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."
While there is no explicit statement of this being the next Xbox system they discuss, it is heavily implied and 99% likely. Of course, Microsoft would be putting themselves up against difficult odds if they didn't release a new system this year to compete with Sony.
Those who can't physically attend the event will still be able to watch via an official streams on Xbox.com and Xbox Live, or through Spike TV. Chances are other sites are set to host their own streams as well. Hopefully Microsoft is better able to manage a stream than Sony.
Do you think the rumors we've been hearing about the next Microsoft system are true?
