    Microsoft will have their own direct digital event to celebrate next-generation Xbox, gaming, and the community.



    E3 has always been an important moment for Team Xbox. Given this decision, this year we'll celebrate the next generation of gaming with the @Xbox community and all who love to play via an Xbox digital event. Details on timing and more in the coming weeks.​

    Nah, not on May 7. I feel like this is closer to XSX pricing and pre-order announcement time.

    It's confirmed to be a 3rd-party showcase. 1st-party will show at a summer event.

    I hope it's not lame like, AC looking like just another PC/current gen title/cinematic/. Little else. Cyberpunk seems way too much to hope for.

    Hope the showing is all RT games. Otherwise I won’t be able to see anything.

    After finally digesting the news one thing I noticed is that they say monthly updates, but then they skip June & go to the July update. Odd.

    Also looks the tag for XSX games is "Xbox Series X Optimized" - "built to take advantage of the powerful Xbox Series X features that make games look and feel incredible, including 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, DirectStorage, hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing, super-fast load times and much more".

    Some of the fan-made box renders I've seen already expected something like this. With the box just saying "Xbox" & then have a smaller logo for "Series X"-enabled titles.

    The YouTube video is the boot screen & sound supposedly. If so, I like, but we''ll rarely hear or see it if the machine is always on/low-power mode.

    Not read it yet.
    But the talk was that the next event that everyone was expecting to be in June was actually in July, so that lines up.

    It's one of the reasons I said ms may be able to give price after Sony, if Sony has event in June.

    Stands to reason as they said next xbox is just called xbox, and that's the series x version.

    It's the less gamey boot sound that I ever ever ever heard in my life

    Definitely different. I like it though. Too bad I won't hear it much. I hardly ever hear my XB1X boot-up.

    Wonder what it is then, as they've not actually said. Could be xbox indie event, but wouldn't see why they wouldn't just say if that was the case.

    Considering their doing monthly events, they can wait to reveal price knowing that they got event coming up. July sounds like good time for it though.

    According to Bloomberg, June will cover "the Xbox platform and services". So probably info on platform-level feature upgrades over the XB1 (stuff like streaming/share functionality, for example), plus Game Pass news and probably more details on xCloud and how that will integrate with Game Pass and the platform itself.

    I'm guessing that will probably be an info dump via selected press outlets like the initial spec reveal, rather than a livestream like we're expecting on Thursday and for the July first-party show.
