The year is already a third of the way over, and we’ve not heard much of anything out of official channels until now. Today, invitations went out for a next-gen Xbox unveiling event in Redmond on May 21.
At 10am Pacific Time on the 21st, Microsoft’s Don Mattrick will be announcing the details of the next Xbox. While only select press will get to see it in person, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has confirmed that the event will be streaming live on Xbox.com and Xbox Live while Spike TV will be covering it on cable. Just two and a half weeks later, Microsoft will be out in full force at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) to show off next-gen games. Finally, we’ll get to see the PS4 and Xbox 720 go head-to-head on the showroom floor.
