Report: Xbox 8 to be revealed at April event

Report: Xbox 8 to be revealed at April event
According to multiple reports, Microsoft is preparing to reveal their Xbox successor at an event in April.

Sony recently showed off features and some gameplay demos for its upcoming PlayStation 4, although the company did not unveil the actual hardware itself. The console is set for launch in November.



Giving more credence to the rumor is the fact that Microsoft partner Ustechs has already registered the domain XboxEvent.com. Ustechs has partnered with Microsoft in the past for previous media briefings like last year's E3.

The new Xbox is expected to launch with Kinect 2, a Blu-ray drive, majorly improved specs and improved speech recognition, much like Apple's Siri service. Supposedly, it will support "wake on voice", natural language controls and provide for speech-to-text.

    8gb GDDR5 ram blew me away no boot times there are loads of cool features on PS4.

    An affordable 1TB hard drive would be nice.
