Even though that Major Nelson has a E3 countdown, we know that both Sony and Microsoft may reveal their next-gen consoles before E3, in which Sony’s almost confirmed date in March for a Playstation event.
But how about a Jan. Reveal?
GGG says that the invitation that they got from Microsoft indicates that there will be Xbox-related events in the conference, after leaving the main spotlight at CES (Well, not really if you are counting their appearance at Qualcomm conference)
Here’s Microsoft’s invitation:
“Please join us for an exclusive open house on January 24th in the new Microsoft Technology Center in our Silicon Valley Campus in Mountain View. We will be showcasing some exciting devices, including the Xbox 360, Kinect, Surface, Windows 8 on an 82” touchscreen from Perceptive Pixel, and our newly launched SmartGlass application. We’ll have leading engineers from our hardware, manufacturing, and software teams on-hand to speak about what Microsoft has in store for the future.
As a very special bonus, Alex Kipman, one of the revolutionary minds behind the Kinect, will be delivering our keynote about the future vision for Microsoft and how we are working to join together software and hardware into meaningful, exciting hardware devices in the years to come.
This will be a great opportunity to network with engineers at Microsoft, and get your hands on some of our newest devices AND to enter a drawing to walk away with one! We hope you’ll join us! “
The event will take place in Mountain View, California.
