Xbox Reveal Coming in May


Microsoft is set to debut the next generation Xbox console in May this year, with early reports suggesting that it won't be named Durango - that's just its code name - or the rumoured Xbox 720, but simply Xbox.

This has been a trend, not necessarily with consoles, but in entertainment in general over the past few years - going back to the roots with the naming scheme. Just look at a few Stallone movies, John Rambo, Rocky Balboa. Of course just like these, Xbox will leave people asking, "do you mean the original Xbox, or...?"

The planned date for the Xbox reveal is 21st May, giving us a few weeks lead in the to the E3 expo, where chances are the big three console makers will be going head to head for the attention of consumers and media headlines. Getting the reveal in early gives Microsoft some serious hype going into the show and prevents it from being overshadowed, as Sony currently has the best lead in of the three.

Chances are at E3, we'll get a look at the PS4 too, which will be exciting considering at the big reveal earlier this year, all we saw hardware wise, was the controller.
