Rumour: Next-Gen Xbox to be Revealed on May 21st

By Gary Cutlack on at

Microsoft is said to be planning an Xbox event for May 21st, which it's likely to use as a springboard to give us our first official look at the company's next generation home console.

According to The Verge and its sources, the next Xbox, currently known under the development codename Durango, will be shown off at the May event along with a hadful of Xbox 360 titles. The new Microsoft machine was due to be shown off at the end of April, although this short delay in the timing of the big reveal is not thought to be having an impact on the Q4 launch.

Meanwhile, in a wildly long and rambling podcast, MS watcher Paul Thurrott claims Microsoft is also working on a reworked $99 Xbox 360 to keep its ageing older box alive. [The Verge]
