Microsoft sent out press invites to its "A New Generation Revealed" event taking place on May 21 at the Xbox Campus in Redmond, Washington. The event will be streamed globally on Xbox LIVE, the console's official website, and the Spike TV channel at 10 a.m PDT.
Microsoft promises to "share our vision for Xbox, and give you a real taste of the future" followed by revealing the console's game line-up at E3 on June 11.
Dubbed the "Xbox 720," Colin Sebastian of Baird Equity Research predicted Microsoft's next generation console would cost approximately US$400 and that "hardware will be largely built from 'off the shelf' high-end PC components along with hybrid physical/digital distribution models, enhanced voice controls and motion sensing (Kinect integration with every Xbox), and broad multi-media capabilities." He added that the system was slated for release in November.
