Report: Xbox 8 to be revealed at April event According to multiple reports, Microsoft is preparing to reveal their Xbox successor at an event in April.
Sony recently showed off features and some gameplay demos for its upcoming PlayStation 4, although the company did not unveil the actual hardware itself. The console is set for launch in November.

Giving more credence to the rumor is the fact that Microsoft partner Ustechs has already registered the domain XboxEvent.com. Ustechs has partnered with Microsoft in the past for previous media briefings like last year's E3.

The new Xbox is expected to launch with Kinect 2, a Blu-ray drive, majorly improved specs and improved speech recognition, much like Apple's Siri service. Supposedly, it will support "wake on voice", natural language controls and provide for speech-to-text.

lost as to what your talking about the PS4 sounds great unless you enjoy looking at the box they come in.

8gb GDDR5 ram blew me away no boot times there are loads of cool features on PS4.

E3 we will see the box & more games what it looks like means nothing they showed what it can do most important thing imo.

An affordable 1TB hard drive would be nice.
