The Redmond giant will reveal the console on May 21st at 1PM EST, and the unveiling will take place at the company's campus in Washington.
Xbox Live boss Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb wrote this of the upcoming console:
On Tuesday May 21st, we'll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment. On that day, we'll be holding a special press event on the Xbox campus and we invite you to join us via the live global stream that will be available on Xbox.com, Xbox LIVE and broadcast on Spike TV if you are in the US or Canada.
On that day, we'll share our vision for Xbox, and give you a real taste of the future. Then, 19-days later at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, we'll continue the conversation and showcase our full lineup of blockbuster games.
We are thrilled to pull back the curtain and reveal what we've been working on.
It will be interesting to see how many of the rumored specs and features of the console will be debunked, most notably the notion that used games will be blocked, and you will need to keep an active Internet connection, at all times, even during single player gaming.
