XBOX 360 was one of the biggest rulers of the gaming arena. Now it’s the turn of the new breed of gaming consoles to rule the arena. Microsoft will be launching the next gen XBOX on 21st May 2013 at the XBOX campus in Redmond, Washington at 10:00 AM. It is to be noted that Sony unveiled its PlayStation 4 just three months back.

The New Next Gen XBOX

On Tuesday May 21st, we’ll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment. On that day, we’ll be holding a special press event on the Xbox campus, and we invite you to join us via the live global stream that will be available on Xbox.com, Xbox LIVE and broadcast on Spike TV if you are in the US or Canada.

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.

Nothing is known of the new XBOX, even the name is also not revealed by the company. However the rumored name XBOX 720 and Project Durango is catching up over the web.

The gamers are expecting the new XBOX to provide these features

  • Eight-core processor
  • 8GB of system memory
  • 800MHz graphics processor
  • Blu-ray drive

If rumors are to be believed then it has been rumored that the new XBOX will need a constant internet connection, as it would protect it against pirated games. But Microsoft has maintained total secrecy over its new product and even refused to comment.

So this winters we could really see some great action both in the gaming arena and off the arena among the two biggest companies (Microsoft and Sony) with their latest offerings i.e the new XBOX and PS4. May the best one Win 😉
