xboxnewrevealHey! In the next few moments, Microsoft will be revealing its Next Big Thing: the follow-up to the Xbox 360. This event, which is taking place at Microsoft's campus, is available to watch at a couple of places, including Xbox.com, GameTrailers and your own Xbox. You can also catch it on Spike TV, if you've got a television handy. Aside from those streams, IGN is also streaming it live via YouTube. Check it out:

NOTE: For some weird reason the live streaming embed isn't working quite right in some browsers. If you're having issues, give Google Chrome a try which seems to work fine.

Word on the street is that Microsoft will be announcing a bunch of phone and tablet support. What we do know is that we'll see some games and services at the event. Specifically, the next Call of Duty title, Call of Duty: Ghosts, is going to get some airtime, in addition to the next generation of EA sports titles, including a UFC and FIFA game. Who knows, maybe even that next entry in the NBA Live franchise will finally appear. Who knows! That's half the fun.

The event should be pretty cool, and, hey, even if mobile doesn't get all the showtime, this is a big deal in the industry that'll set the tone moving into E3 and for the next-generation of video game playing devices.

    I was right about new smart glass just saying.

    Never heard so much insincere marketing BeeEss, truly nauseating. "And of course… my favourite, Game of Thrones" - had to switch off at that point.

  • iammane

    Partnership between Microsoft and EA - nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ah well back to work.

      The freemium plague is spreading.

  • araczynski

    wow, calling that disappointing is an understatement. more of the same, maybe it can finally do 720p across the board as a minimum. looking forward to what the ps4 has to offer more.

    • swarmster

      I imagine they'll have actual games to show next month. They've said as much.

      Unfortunately it sounded like you'd still have to pay hundreds of dollars extra to play multiplayer games, so Sony still has a considerable edge.

  • themostunclean

    PS4 is a technological milestone. This is just a sequel.

    • jeffyg3

      Doesn't make any sense. They seem to both be both equally powerful.
      I probably won't be getting the PS4 or Xbox One until they come out with the hardware redesigns for both, besides I have too many unfinished games on the Xbox 360 (especially) and PS3...those should keep me busy until the 2nd gen hardware comes for both, tho I'm a lot more excited about the Xbox One due to the possibility of the Illuminiroom(sp?) being released half way thu, and also I can't live without halo and gears of war

  • Madison

    Wait for PS4. That will be the winner.

    • Greyskull

      Has the PS4 been unveiled yet?

      • Galenmereth

        Over a month ago.

      • captainugboots

        Only out of focus from a distance, and really close up macro shots.

        So, kind of.

    IT looks like and old VHS player. And the kinect is also ugly as hell.
    Maybe the gamepad is okay

  • RickyBrooke

    Not impressed with the Xbox One - I'm jumping ship to the Playstation 4 it's won over my heart already with its great range of launch titles...

  • Doc Robby

    I really like Xbox be eez zo FUGLY!

  • raviadso

    Kinect is what is keeping me Microsoft which is strange since it really is wonky this gen. If the kinect works like they showed and it can control my whole tv watching experience, then it's worth it. Motion controls on universal remotes are $100+ and don't always work for a unified experience. Count me in for one if the games are also there.

  • ODMay

    PS4 about to go to work on XBOX ONE.

  • coolwhip

    Sony trolls are hilarious. Trust me the Sony execs just crapped their drawers. The PS4 is just another console (I hope they can get the PS4 to work within a year of release). Microsoft just mopped the floor with Sonys PS4 reveal.

  • Castleman711

    Huh? Microsoft just ruined their future in gaming. I have never witnessed such a backlash from the gaming public as I did today. The Wii U looks like superman after that

  • grits

    Looks good to me. Looking forward to E3 where I'm sure they'll show tons of awesome games. I think they just had to get all this stuff out of the way.
    Kinect seems very promising and the controller tweaks look great.

  • oldgamer dude

    All in one entertainment system ? Like the PS3 ? Oh you can Skype from your tv , yippee . Colour me underwhelmed .

    • MidianGTX

      I dunno why you're comparing it to PS3 when it looks almost exactly like the atrocity the 360 turned into.

  • oldgamer dude

    But they do have blu ray finally :) fake applause , fake applause lol .

  • NeonGreenKermit

    As an Xbox 360 owner from launch day, I'm hugely underwhelmed. The ability to watch live TV, browse on IE (ughghgh), listen to music and make Skype calls all simultaneously would perhaps be more appealing if I hadn't already owned computers for the last two decades. What's more alarming is the lack of exclusive games - sure, there will be 15, but they must be pretty sucktastic if they couldn't even be bothered to give them a short teaser montage. It's very disappointing as I want a next-gen games console, not a lounge entertainment hub. Also, Kinect makes my skin crawl.
