Microsoft to unveil its upcoming console on 21st May

It's official this time.

Microsoft has finally confirmed when and where it will be unveiling its upcoming console. On Tuesday, 21st May, it will hold a special press event on the Xbox Campus in Redmond, Washington at 10 a.m. PST, so 6p.m. in the UK.

"On Tuesday May 21st, we'll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment," wrote Microsoft community man Major Nelson on his blog. "On that day, we'll share our vision for Xbox, and give you a real taste of the future. Then, 19-days later at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, we'll continue the conversation and showcase our full lineup of blockbuster games."

Thankfully, the reveal event will be livestreamed so you can watch it anywhere, assuming you have the internet. And if the always-online rumours are true, Microsoft is pretty confident that you do.
