May 21st, the date that the world will get to see the next generation of the Xbox. What does Microsoft have to do in the event to succeed?
[talking about showing the actual console and the nasty tweet made by Major Nelson]
"After this sort of tweet from an employee, choosing to do the same thing as Sony and not revealing the console itself would be a major mistake from Microsoft."
I just got bombarded with disagrees in another article for saying exactly this haha. Well bring em on again because I'm repeating the same sentiment, not showing a console would make MS look foolish.
Perhaps, if they are releasing in Oct. However I dont feel Sony made a mistake at that time as it was pretty far and they had time at e3 ... 5 things ms needs to do - games , games , games, games, games.
Come on, if you were in their shoes, you wouldn't have showed the console? It's not because they just didn't want to, they probably didn't have a final build of the outter shell.
I refuse to read any more opinions that list 5 or 8 or what ever number of things. Always a waste of time. The Next Xbox will be shown at this event. It is only a few weeks from E3 so it makes no since to wait.
MS will put on a good show. I predict it will be similar to sony's but more detailed. It will be better than what sony showed.
Whilst on a whole i was very impressed with what Sony showed us in Feb (even if they didn't show the console) I also have high hopes for MS and what they may bring to the table. I'll get both eventually but which will i get first? I'll know after E3 I'd say..... bring on May 21st.....and then let them duke it out at E3... I hope there are some differences though....If MS have some good new exclusives (even if less than sony) and some other good features / services then it's win / win for me....
I really suspect the nextbox will be released before or no later then 11/5, when COD is released. It really wouldn't make sense to have COD at your reveal showing off their new game and then release the game before the nextbox is out. I expect a mid-to-late October release. Or, release on 11/5 with a COD bundle package.
