On May 21st 2013, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) will officially unveil their next generation of Xbox game consoles. The tech giant recently sent out invitations to the press and media. The invites read, “A New Generation Revealed. Don Mattrick and the Xbox team invite you to the Xbox campus for a special unveiling.”
The Xbox is one of the most popular gaming consoles on the market and it’s been overdue for an upgrade for a long time. The device is more than just a gaming console, it’s also an all-in-one home entertainment device that allows users to stream movies, music, connect on the internet, and more. It also offers a variety of apps to entertain and improve the user experience. Just recently, Xbox teamed up with Pizza Hut for a pizza-ordering app. Now gamers can order pizzas without leaving their game console.
In a recent official Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) blog post, the company says the event will, “mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV, and entertainment. 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.”
There isn’t a whole lot of information about the upcoming Xbox or the official reveal, which is understandable as most companies don’t like to share information about the devices before the launch. The next generation gaming device is expected to feature more impressive graphic processing power, more interactive streaming media, and an improved Kinect gaming system. It’s highly unlikely the new Xbox will disappoint. Many Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) fans have been waiting for a long time for another Xbox generation to arrive and now they won’t have to wait much longer. The next Xbox could be just the thing to help boost Microsoft as a company.
