Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has described the 21st May reveal of the new Xbox as laying the foundation” for the new platform, with most of the new games to be revealed at E3.
Speaking on Major Nelson’s podcast (as transcribed by Videogamer), Microsoft’s chief of staff at the IEB division said, So we’re going to start on the 21st, and really that’s about revealing the next Xbox platform; our vision for the future of games, the future of entertainment.”
"People are going to get a great inside look at the making of the new platform and the team that’s brought it to life,” Greenberg said. To be honest, it’s really about the team, the people here. That’s why we’re inviting people to campus; we’re going to bring them behind the scenes a little bit. We’ve never done this before and so it’s really exciting to be able to do that. It’s a lot of laying the foundation, probably the best way to describe it, and then just a couple of weeks later we go to E3."
Greenberg said that E3 would be the platform where Microsoft will focus on games for the new Xbox.
"E3 is all about the games. At E3, if you’re a gamer, it’s going to be tonnes of exclusives, world premieres, and obviously even beyond that, we have a lot to share between then and this holiday."
The new Xbox will be revealed on 21st May at 11:30 pm IST in an event that will be streamed live on Xbox.com and Xbox LIVE.
