By on

#XboxRevealIn a move to rival Sony’s announcement for the PlayStation 4 earlier this year, Microsoft this morning announced their plans for a “new generation of games, TV and entertainment”. On Wednesday May 22 3am AEST, Microsoft will live broadcast the official reveal from their Xbox campus – available via the official Xbox website, or through Xbox LIVE.

Whether this announcement is Microsoft’s attempt at a next-generation console, or new plans for the Xbox 360 is unknown; but Microsoft will showcase a full lineup of blockbuster games at E3, in relation to this reveal.

In addition, the official Xbox website has been added with a timeline highlighting key events and milestones from both the original Xbox and the Xbox 360 – ranging from the launch of the launch of the original Xbox in 2001, to the tenth anniversary of Xbox LIVE in 2012.
