UK to get own MS event this year

Instead of X07.

Following the news that this year's X0 event has been cancelled, a Microsoft spokesperson has told GamesIndustry.biz that the UK will get its own Xbox 360 event instead.

"X07 is not going ahead," the spokesperson confirmed.

"We're looking at doing something here in the UK. It will be from a UK point of view, not from a European point of view."

According to the spokesperson, the timing for the new UK event is "still to be confirmed". However, he did state that it is set to take place "before Christmas".

News of the X07 cancellation emerged yesterday in a Squad XP podcast. Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg stated, "There is not a real X07 this year, but I think that we will figure out some way to talk about 2008 some time at a different event or a different type of programme."

Microsoft has so far declined to comment on why the decision was taken to cancel X07.
