Microsoft Corp. will not unveil the next generation of its Xbox video game console at the Game Developers Conference in March, the company said on Monday.

Citing a conversation with Microsoft (Research) management, American Technology Research analyst P.J. McNealy said the company was more likely to take the wraps off its new console in May at the broader Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

A Microsoft spokeswoman confirmed McNealy's report that the new Xbox would not be shown off at GDC.

As opposed to E3, which takes in publishers, marketers and retailers, GDC is aimed more narrowly at game developers. It was at GDC five years ago that Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates unveiled the original Xbox.

The new Xbox, code-named "Xenon," is widely expected within the industry to launch later this year. Microsoft has said little publicly about it, though, and on a conference call last week suggested there would be little news until E3.

Last week Microsoft cited strong sales of its "Halo 2" video game for the Xbox as one of the key drivers of its financial results for the December quarter.

they probably don't have anything ready yet...

a couple of days before E3 they will slap together some pc. stick it in a box with a cut down XP kernel and call it the next thing in console gaming....


"Mrs. Jones, I'm sorry to inform you, but we've run the tests, and it appears that you have XP. Now don't cry - it's bad, but it's not a death sentence. Modern science has advanced in recent years, and it's now possible to live a reasonably happy life with XP. And there's a survivor's group that you'll want to meet as well."

Why not, the original XBox motherboard (original xbox had 3 seperate motheboards if i recall) was designed by Intel, the person designing it was Tim Menard (IceMyst's dad) in the Beaverton, OR office... Ever wonder why they'd hire a company to build a motherboard that has no fucking clue wtf a gaming system's motherboard is for?

Funny thing is, microsoft gave them 3 months to do a 12 month project, THEN had the guall to not fulfil on their "you made it you get a free xbox" deal they had and gave him a $10 coupon for an xbox lol...
