New Xbox coming - 21 May
Need we say more? Probably not - we think the invite speaks for itself.
What we will say is that the 21 May date for the 'New Generation' Xbox event comes just a couple of weeks before the big E3 games expo in LA. MSN Tech will be reporting live from E3, so we should be bringing you plenty of juicy next-gen gaming news and views. And don't forget, Sony will be in town as well showing off the new PlayStation 4 as well.
Here's the Twitter hype...
@AceyBongos: Quick note on #XboxReveal timing for my UK and European chums - it'll happen Tuesday May 21st, 6pm UK, 7pm CET. Watch it with your dinner!
@GameOverGreggy: I CAN'T BELIEVE @XBOX IS STEALING MY DAD'S BIRTHDAY FOR THE #XBOXREVEAL!
@RoboDuke: I hope whoever is hosting the #XboxReveal opens with "Always-online will not be a problem because you'll never want to stop playing."
@braydee89: No mention of "product" or "products". Could #xboxreveal include Xbox Surface and Xbox Mini?
Take a look at MSN Tech's guide to the consoles coming your way in 2013
when is xbox gonna take a leaf out of playstations book and stop ripping us off and make live free???
1. RROD permanant fix with ALL launch and future consoles.
2. LIVE either heavily discounted or free.
3. Allow the play of 2nd hand games.
4. Allow backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 and possibly Xbox live arcade titles from 360.
5. Not be too expensive (Most i would pay is £300.)
6. Better tech than PS4...
Fully agree with the internet connection stuff. I gave up gaming on my PC because of Steam !!!
They really should make some kind of emulator so people can choose to use their PC hardware to run the console games even better.
Or even upgradable/ replacement graphic cards for the consoles to avoid the overheating issue that will eventually burn out the onboard chip. Consoles are designed like a laptop - designed for a limited amount of time and when it goes, throw away or get a temp fix.
the amount of crap games I have had to play over the last 4-5 years are all down to consoles. get rid & the pc will always win. much more skill needed & as for a controller well you need to stick it were the sun don't shine!!!
