    Microsoft to spill Xbox 720 beans this week? (MCVUK)

    Microsoft to spill Xbox 720 beans this week?


    The press could get its first look at the Xbox 720 this Wednesday, it is being claimed.


    “Wait, select press are going to be at the Microsoft fiscal year 2014 event this week?” Superannuation Tweeted. “I thought that it was MS partners only. Hmm. There are a bunch of invite-only sessions about Xbox.”


    Microsoft's FY2014 Event is not normally a place for game or tech briefings with the games press, and is normally reserved for investors and publishing partners.


    However, the event's timetable shows invite-only sessions across both Wednesday March 6th and Thursday March 7th. They carry titles such as “IEB Xbox Platform Overview”, “Xbox Platform Deep Dive” and “Xbox Games”. Only one of the early sessions references “Xbox 360” by name.


    It is entirely plausible that Microsoft has decided to use the pre-scheduled event to grant press a first look at its new console following Sony's decision to debut the PS4 at a globally viewed dedicated press briefing last month.


    Press could likely be directed to start issuing information as early as this week – a prolonged embargo would not seem to work in Microsoft's favour. Certainly, a behind closed doors demonstration this early in year would seem to suggest that the machine will be revealed way ahead of E3 in the summer.

    It would be a smart move to shut down all the rumors going on, which usually aren't favoring Microsoft at all. Even under NDA, it will be easy to hype things up until April.
    Yup I'm Back. If you wonder, read this. =)
    "Fake Effects"? Read This. Move on. I'm not interested. Thank you

    Logical move from their perspective, but we will have to wait and see

    This, especially about that rumor of no backwards compatability. That is if they aren't doing that.

    I just want the damn name revealed because I am SO SICK of hearing it called "Xbox 720". That name just makes no sense at all lol.

    The term "360" was chosen because the Xbox allowed you to play with people all over the world. All 360 degrees of it.

    DUDE!!!

    I 1,000,000,000,000% Agree on that that name is so Lame I wouldn't even buy it if MS actually called it that. I think they should Just call it an XBOX as a lot if not most people just call the 360 that anyways, or something simple.

    Agreed. Infinity sounds cool as hell. Not to mention the logo would be sweet!

    I am thinking it is going to be called Infinity as well, the 720 name isn't a good console name, just reminds me of this old skateboarding game I use to play:

    I wish they'd just start numbering it logically. Who the $#@! cares if Sony had one gen of console ahead of them (based on the rationale that they chose 360, in part because of the connecting everyone ideal, as well as not wanting XBox2 to sound "inferior" to PS3)?

    That's not their fault. It would save from the corny $#@!ing "Code names" that people come up with.

    Call it XBOX3 with some Win8/Metro style font and design and be done with it.

    @Admartian- I hate most of the code names that come out. I think Durango has to be one of the worst of all time. They are usually forgotten very quickly once the console is named though.

    I don't think that's right. I'm pretty sure it had to do with fully encompassing your entertainment needs as a whole

    A revolution in gaming. The game revolves around the player.

    From what I've read, I hope some of the rumors aren't. I better be impressed, when they reveal it.

    I still can't figure out how they got it. That is like calling the PS4 a PS6. WTF?
