When Xbox 720 will be announced is a question that many are asking, but apparently a new report suggests that day will be later this afternoon.
According to a report from IBTimes yesterday, Xbox 720 is likely to be unveiled during the 2014 fiscal year conference call that will take place later today.
Some new details suggest this will happen as such events that are scheduled to take place over the next three days are named: "Xbox Platform Deep Dive, Xbox Games and Xbox Q&A."
Now these events are invite only and are not public, so the company could be doing an inside reveal of the Xbox 720 will NDA's being handed out to everyone in attendance, but don't be surprised if information is leaked.
It's rather common for that to happen nowadays.
Superannuation, who is supposedly attending this event, sent out a few messages regarding the event.
"Wait, select press are going to be at the Microsoft fiscal year 2014 event this week?"
"I thought that it was MS partners only. Hmm. There are a bunch of invite-only sessions about Xbox."
People should be skeptical about any major reveal due to Microsoft making little to no public announcements about this and it happening essentially now.
This seems like a PlayStation Destination situation where people thought that was where the PS4 would be revealed and then Sony held a separate event for it.
Microsoft will be holding a press event for the announcement of the Xbox 720. It is too crucial for them not to do so. The amount of attention and focus that was on the PS4 is too grand for the Xbox 720 to not experience the same.
It would be rather unwise on the part of Microsoft to not make a big deal out of this because let's face it, this is a major deal. How will Microsoft respond to what Sony has done? What will the Xbox 720 have to offer?
