Microsoft to hold Xbox event on May 21April 24, 2013 @ 3:53 pm
REDMOND, Wash. (AP) - Microsoft is inviting journalists to an Xbox event at its Redmond., Wash., headquarters that will likely shed light on its next video game console.
Microsoft Corp. said Wednesday that the May 21 event will reveal a new generation of games, TV and entertainment. Nineteen days later Microsoft plans to reveal more details about its games at the E3 video game expo in Los Angeles.
Microsoft says the event will be broadcast on Xbox.com and on Xbox Live and on Spike TV in the U.S. and Canada.
In February Sony Corp. gave some details about its next gaming machine, the PlayStation 4, at a New York event. Nintendo's latest game console, the Wii U, launched last fall.
All three are trying to position their devices as entertainment hubs.
