Microsoft starts E3 countdown, stirring rumors of next Xbox


PCWorld – Without saying much of anything, Microsoft has hinted that its next Xbox will break cover at the E3 trade show in June.

Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, Microsoft’s director of programming for Xbox Live, has posted a countdown timer to E3 on his blog. Nothing accompanies the post except the headline (“Countdown to E3 2013”), a link to the official E3 Website, and the words “And it’s on…”

E3 is scheduled for June 11-13 in Los Angeles, though Microsoft usually holds a press conference the day before the show floor opens.

In fairness, Hryb could be counting down to anything—yet another version of Halo, perhaps, or the rumored “Xbox Surface” tablet. Or maybe he just woke up on this morning and realized he was really excited for a trade show that’s six months away.
