Microsoft Announces New Xbox Reveal Date
Next-gen games console to be unveiled to world in less than a month...
Microsoft has confirmed that its next-generationXboxgames console will be revealed to the world on 21 May.
The computing giant has described its new device - commonly referred to as the Xbox 720 - as "a new generation of games, TV and entertainment".
And the console will be unveiled at a special press event being held at its Redmond campus in Washington, which will be live-streamed on the web for fans.
"On that day, we'll share our vision for Xbox, and give you a real taste of the future," said Xbox Live director Larry Hyrb in a statement.
"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."
The company was recently involved in a bit of PR firefighting after an executive broke ranks on the subject of the controversial "always online" requirement which the machine is expected to include.
