So says Xbox’s Major Nelson, who announced the news today on his blog. Microsoft will show the new console at its campus in Washington, with a live stream available for those keen to see what the new Xbox, codenamed “Durango”, will offer — especially in light of the recent PS3 announcement, which Microsoft took a subtle swipe at by saying the Xbox would offer “a real taste of the future”.
For those concerned about Microsoft’s presence at E3, don’t be. Microsoft will use the massive gaming expo to showcase the software coming to the new system, with a focus on games, as well as TV and entertainment.
