Microsoft Sets Up Mysterious Countdown Clock

 Microsoft Sets Up Mysterious Countdown Clock
topic by MischiefTooReal - 01-03-2013, 11:12 PM - Boxden > BX GameSpot


People are clamoring over every scrap of possible next-gen scrap of news, and Microsoft may have chucked a little piece under the table. Microsoft's Larry Hyrb (Major Nelson) has set up a countdown clock on his official blog.

The timer, which was posted under the headline "And it's on..." reaches zero at E3 2013. The annual show is certainly a big deal for all three of the major console manufacturers, so it's not unreasonable that it could merely be a tease to what will end up being another helping of Xbox 360 fare. Considering Microsoft's relatively tame showing last year (and pervasive speculation that new hardware will be announced in the coming months), it's also not a stretch to think that there's more to "And it's on..." than a countdown leading to something along the lines of Kinect Sports 3.

Only time will tell for sure. In the meantime, do you have any guesses as to what we're looking at here?

Even if their next console is a failure, it's not going to destroy their company. Demise is certainly the wrong word.

They had a countdown clock to the 360s release last gen. This is just for E3 but it's pretty evident that next gen consoles will be revealed.

You sound extremely pathetic and I don't even care which console someone thinks is better. It's a ####ing video game. How pathetic can you be to get that wrapped up in PS3vs360

This is his life man. Look at how many posts he has and how long he's been on this forum. Also we all know he has other aliases.

It counts down to E3, what is mysterious about that? If it was just some random date, it would be mysterious. There is no mystery here.

It's probably just another XBL price hike.
