Microsoft teases 'huge' Xbox 360 announcement for E3

VP Phil Spencer says company will support current-gen platform for "years to come," hints at "surprising" announcement for E3. Though Microsoft's future is the Xbox One, the platform holder is not leaving the Xbox 360 behind anytime soon.

Microsoft Game Studios executive Phil Spencer told GameSpot that the company will support the platform for "years to come" and even has a "huge" Xbox 360 announcement in the works for next month's Electronic Entertainment Expo. (E3, Industry, Microsoft, Phil Spencer, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Ironically, it's the same exact things they showed on nextbox's reveal.It'll just be the same stuff at E3 again.

smh
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   431d ago
Unfortunetaly "reports of project natal" and E3 2010 was basically the moments that cemented MS's focus towards casual that people perceived in last years, so let's hope next E3 MS conference is nothing like that.

I'm siding with PS4 so far (gotta wait at least 'till E3 to see pricing and other policies to close the deal) but I don't want Sony to go without a hard competition, it made wonders to turn PS3 into the beast it is, I expect the same to happen again and make both One and PS4 the best consoles they can be.
ABizzel1  +   432d ago
I don't think it's a $99 console. More so the Xbox Mini for $99 which is more of an apple TV-like device than an actual 360 console.

Talk about a PR nightmare
I'm sure when they woke up the morning of May 21st they never thought @ 2pm Eastern Time that this would be the outcome of their televised unveiling. They are scrambling right now. They better pull a 12 inch dildo out a woman's ass at E3 to wow the fans, because they are losing ground every day that passes. They are letting this bad press fester too long. They should come out with a statement ASAP

TriforceLightning  +   432d ago
Nothing they could possibly do would reverse the wave upon wave of hatred the gaming community has for them at the moment. This will probably be some price cut and software package deal aimed at the casuals. As mentioned above it will be within $99 to $150 USD and most likely be 2 Kinect games and 2 better with Kinect titles and bundled Kinect. Meh.

Gamers never keep their promise. Everyone is saying they're done with Microsoft but I guarantee they end up selling millions of that trash console.

They'll end up showing 1 cool game and everyone will forgot about the massive amounts of anti-consumer drm packed into Xbox One.

Watch.
Why o why  +   432d ago
Wait. Wasnt you murder dolls. You used to back the 360 and ms to the hills. Times done change I guess
Why o why  +   432d ago
Just checked your profile pic...DEFINITELY murder dolls.. you love that chick....

You definitely disliked the ps3 fans/fanboys with a passion. You may still do but strangely you can see what some of us/them were saying about ms was true. I think the real change was just before kinects release. MS shifted focus and used their fans vehement defending of their practices to help them continue with their just enough attitude towards their core... Fling them less blockbusters, invest in less new ips, rely on 3rd party games and deals, up their xbl fees, release more kinect games than core at a ridiculous ratio.......Our fans will defend us...

FunkMacNasty  +   431d ago
@ Why o why,

Just because some people here enjoyed their 360's doesn't mean that they are happy with Microsofts new console. And just because someone gets fed up with the blind Sony worship that goes on here, doesn't mean they're close-minded too. Its comments like yours that are physical proof that the Sony love around here goes beyond just a preference, its like you have to be part of one "faction" or another. I don't get it.

If Anyone is happy with the XboxOne, they must either not be a serious gamer, or they are likely a blind fanboy that just can't see the truth. I will love my 360 for years to come, but it will live alongside my ps3 and ps4.. no room in my house for the XboxOne. There's nothing there for me and a lot of people who love their 360's are totally turned off from the XboxOne (including a lot of people here who have been labeled MS "fanboys" by the Sony lovers)

This XboxOne reveal was actually the gaming community's shining moment--it was the only single time I can think of where gamers across the globe pretty much stood united in their collective disdain for a single piece of hardware.

Rainstorm81  +   432d ago
You can obviously hook the 360 into the the HDMI in and there you go 360 integrated into XB1....although you would have to swap controllers
ShwankyShpanky  +   431d ago
I'd wager that you won't need to swap controllers.

I'm also wondering if it might not connect via HDMI. If it connected via HDMI, how would you connect a cable box?

This is likely their solution to backwards compatibility, and it's not that bad of an idea. Unless your 360 breaks.

Edit: I bet it'll also add some improved Kinect 2.0 functionality to the 360.

I completely agree with hatred and disappointment towards that but when Microsoft essentially announce 15 exclusives in a year people are still not happy.

Good to hear that the 360 will still be supported. I don't see myself buying the XB1 until at least a couple of years after it's release.
hopefully by then some of these anti consumer tactics Microsoft are currently adopting will be kicked in to touch, or at the very least ironed out to the point that they are not such a bitter pill to swallow.

The 360 is still a perfectly viable gaming option for the next couple of years in my opinion.

Sky_Walker  +   432d ago
I think so...in a way this is good news becuase when the XB1 is not selling MS will have to do a price drop which means I can buy one for cheap.

For those of you wwondering why I would buy one...I am a huge NFL and NBA fans and love fantacy leagues.

The sad thing is going to be that N4G will just be full of PS fans and no wars will happen since XBOX fans wont come here anymore...this place is going to be boring.

Why oh why do I read article after article only to find people still saying well maybe I'll wait or they have 15 new game coming ohhhh Boy good for them I say stick a fork in MS and call it a day cuz there is no excuse in the world to purchase that product period Stop Acting Like Lemmings People WAKE UP!!!!! this is a serious step in the wrong direction for everyone ( kinect can see you) always online , drm, Xbox live fees that people still justify to themselfs mind you in these tuff economic times there was an increase in the price of it all in the name of what oh poor Microsoft poor global corporation that gets revenue from adverts on live cuz you can't deny we get slammed with lots of adds on live and the cost to advertise on live is dependent on us the consumer Microsoft uses there active live user data to determine price to advertise on live boy they get revenue flowing in a complete 360 when it comes to live. Now the purpose of the media is to promote the good in you product infomercial anyone same thing here with Xbox one google news for it most of it is great why is that hm.... Spread the word kill the anti consumer box known as xb1 and if Sony attempts this because they have been beating around the stick I say take your ball and go home people in a year they will change there tune mark my words do not support anything that takes away your rights as a consumer
FunkMacNasty  +   431d ago
Skywalker, Honestly I think N4G will be a better place to kill some free time, if your scenario plays out. There won't be any brand-loyalty nonsense and maybe we'll all actually have rational discussions about games...

...Nah that will never happen..

As long as the internet exists, no one will agree. on anything. ever.

Sky_Walker  +   432d ago
This makes me wonder if the rumors about the 3 XBoxs were true.

The XBox Spyder - A smaller cheaper XBOX 360

The XBox Mini - A device that would do only TV stuff and is suppose to rival Google and Apple TV

The XBox Durango - Purely a next gen gaming machine

In the end I belive they decided to go cheap and said you know what lets combine all three and call it the XBox one.

Jek_Porkins  +   432d ago
Halo 2 HD, and a price drop to $99 for the Xbox 360. Could also have a Xbox 360 super slim or something? E3 is going to be huge for Microsoft.

Guess it puts to rest all the questions about if they'd support the Xbox 360 after the Xbox One comes out, so many ignorant people thought they'd just drop it, but that wouldn't make any sense, it's cheap to produce, third parties will support it like crazy for years, and 80 million people have one. They also haven't had a price drop in 3-4 years! So put it out at $99 and watch people flock to it for the incredible back catalog and Xbox Live features.

I think it could be a stack as well with the 360s and a small version to stack with no drive and can switch and maybe even utilize some of its power to boost the X1.
