Microsoft Ready to Show New Xbox
Next-generation gaming console will make its debut on MTV next month.

Anyone who wants to learn more about the next Xbox console should tune
in to MTV on May 12, Microsoft says.

The software maker and cable TV channel have struck a marketing deal
to provide an early look at the highly anticipated video game console
on MTV channels in the U.S., Asia Pacific, and Europe during a 24-hour
period, Microsoft says in a statement.

The new Xbox, which is widely expected to be in U.S. stores by the end
of this year, will be featured in a 30-minute show titled "MTV
Presents: The Next Generation Xbox Revealed." The show starts May 12
at 9.30 p.m. Eastern Time and will be hosted by actor Elijah Wood and
also star Las Vegas rock band The Killers, Microsoft says.

The broadcast will show gameplay of future Xbox games, news on the
future of the Xbox Live online gaming service, celebrity interviews,
and footage on the making of the next-generation console, Microsoft
says.

Official Unveiling

Microsoft has gradually been giving out more details of the console
technology and games for the device. The company is expected to
officially unveil the console at the Electronic Entertainment Expo
(E3), which starts May 17 in Los Angeles. Sony is expected to premiere
its new PlayStation console at the same event.

Microsoft introduced the current Xbox game console, the first model,
in late 2001. As of December 31, the company had sold 19.9 million
consoles worldwide, 13.2 million of which were in North America, 5
million in Europe, and 1.7 million in Japan and the Asia-Pacific
region.

Local times for the program, which will air on May 13 in other
regions, are: Japan/Asia, 11:30 a.m.; Australia, 7 p.m.; France and
Germany, 7 p.m.; Netherlands, 7:30 p.m.; Portugal, Romania, and U.K.,
8 p.m.; Poland, 9 p.m.; Spain 9:30 p.m.; Scandinavia, 10 p.m.; and
Italy, 11:30 p.m.

I'm sure in a week or two he'll tell about about IGN's review of Jade
Empire.
