Source: Next Xbox Reveal Set For May 21

Game Informer has just received word that Microsoft is about to send out invitations for an unveiling event for the next Xbox. According to our source, which as asked to for anonymity, the proceedings will take place on May 21 in Redmond, Washington.

While the presentation will be held in an intimate setting, it will be streamed live on Xbox.com, Xbox Live, and Spike TV in the US and Canada. We are looking forward to finding out the truth about the rumors swirling around the next-generation hardware, specifically whether the console will require a constant internet connection. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

"On Tuesday May 21st, we’ll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment."

Yet another part of the rumors that was proven true. They have been dead on so far. PS4 was exactly what they said it'd be, and now Xbox is turning out to be exactly what they said it'd be.

"Yet another part of the rumors that was proven true"

What other parts have also been proven true? To my knowledge this has been the only thing that has been confirmed by Microsoft.

I was talking about both the PS4 and Next Xbox rumors, I should have clarified. Since both were coming out around the same time, and in some cases were coming from the same sources, I spoke of them together. The PS4's rumors all turned out to be true, and now we're seeing the Xbox end of things starting to pan out as well.

Meh.

It worries me that they mention TV and entertainment in the same category as games :/

Did it worry you when you bought your current console be it PS3, 360, Wii or Wii U and it had Netflix, Hulu or Youtube plastered on the box?

I think all the consoles will have similar apps, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with advertising your console to do other things, it'll draw in more people, and that is what Microsoft wants. It's not like they sold off their gaming studios to add these other features.

sway_z  +   701d ago
Let's see what kind of competition MS will bring to table.

Real time games running...not PC spec'd.

I'm just glad we can be done with the stupid speculation and rumor articles. Now our disappointment will have facts to back it up. :P

Ron_Danger  +   701d ago
Finally something concrete.
DarkZane  +   701d ago
Sony is planning to make another event before E3. Doing it a few days earlier than MS would completely undermine what MS is gonna show.

Not that it matters what MS do, Sony already has this in the bag.
Roper316  +   701d ago
Nice to have a date finally but what is up with a 1:00 pm EST reveal? Do they want everyone to be at work when it's revealed? Who is the idiot that came up with that time of day for their initial reveal?
IronFistChinMi  +   701d ago
They want to conquer Europe perhaps. Whilst they have the UK, mainland Europe is predominantly Sony.

Finally because I'm soo sick of theses daily rumors... But Let's see what MS has to offer, I hope it's not just a Kinectables event!!
VoiceMale  +   701d ago
well am glad that there is something confirmed about MS new console...21st may is not the far off from E3 which is just around the corner in June, but still i will take the earlier date cause there is just too many questions than answers about the DURANGO
