Xbox Event Website Registered, Presentation Imminent
Sony announced the PlayStation 4 this past Wednesday and now everyone is wondering what Microsoft is up to. We’ve heard rumors about a new Xbox being developed that is allegedly being codenamed Durango. It seems that we may or may not be finding out Microsoft’s plans sooner rather than later as Destructoid is reporting a website registered by the company has been discovered.
Event planners Eventcore have registered the URL XboxEvent.com. It’s worth nothing that this was registered yesterday, February 21st, one day after Sony’s PlayStation meeting. NeoGAF notes that these are the same people who were listed as putting together Microsoft’s E3 2012 media event last year. So this obviously suggest that Microsoft may have a presentation of their own soon.
If I were to guess, I would think what everyone else would probably figure and say that Microsoft will unveil the next Xbox console at this alleged presentation and that this presentation will be before E3 2013. CVG is reporting that many industry insiders, including one from Sony, believe that the event will take place in April. Other rumors suggest that a March presentation during or around the time of the Game Developers Conference.
In all honesty, a lot of this is speculation with not very much merit to them and some of it is just straight up guessing. Either way, it will be interested to see if Microsoft has something that can best all of the features Sony is now promising with their PlayStation 4. Microsoft recently has been gearing the Xbox 360 as more of a media hub rather than a video game console so I would think that the next Xbox would reflect that.
However, that is only my personal opinion! What do you think about this registering of a website? Is it a sign of things to come? Are you excited for the next Microsoft console? Leave a comment below and let us know.
