With all the Xbox 2 speculation that's fizzing around the internet it's heartening to know that Microsoft has confirmed that the next-gen console's debut will happen not at E3, but on MTV.

The Xbox 2 will be busted out in a "high-energy half-hour program" called MTV Presents: The Next Generation Xbox Revealed. The program will air at 8pm in the UK on Friday, May 13 (unlucky for some?), with other European countries also getting the program on that evening. In the States jammy MTV viewers will see the program an evening earlier on May 12 at 9.30pm. We've listed the full list of times and dates for you below.





Microsoft and MTV are promising "an exclusive look at the Xbox vision for the next generation," with "never-before-seen, action-packed gameplay of future Xbox games, a peek into the future of the Xbox Live online gaming service, backstage celebrity interviews and exclusive insider footage," making up the meat of the show.

Peter Moore, corporate vice president of worldwide marketing and publishing for Xbox at Microsoft, reckons the unusual unveiling will go down a storm. "Just as MTV revolutionised the way the world experiences music, the next-generation video game console from Xbox will spark a revolution in how consumers experience games and other forms of digital entertainment. We are ecstatic about our alliance with MTV and unveiling a video game platform in a way that has never been done."

Renowned ring stroking specialist Elijah Woods will be on hand to do the presenting and The Killers will provide some tunes. Other celebrities are also involved, leaving us to wonder for just how long the actual console will be shown.

Here's the full list of international dates and times for the show. Enjoy!

U.K.: Friday, May 13, at 20:00

North America: Thursday, May 12, at 9:30 p.m. (21:30)

Man, I think this is brilliant of Microsoft to do, because MTV is watched by millions of people, and that just garaunties succes. But, on the downside, it could mean that rivals Sony and Nintendo might steal their ideas from the Xbox2. Anyhow, make sure you all program your Tivo's for this one, I'm sure it's going to rock.

Post your thoughts.

Woot! I.6 post mini-milestone. smile.gif

f*cking gay. I don't have MTV no more. And I was really anticipating the next gen systems, hopefully it will be in the internet without a big download.

By the way. Your "source" is f*cked up.

Thanks for the heads up Made. tounge.gif

They might upload bits and pieces of the show on MTV, but you will probably see all the stuff they talk about the next day all over the internet.

And, if possible, I'll post it up here. smile.gif

So I take it by Australia they mean it will be on MTV's station obviosuly on Foxtel? Oh well I guess the net will be my source for it then even though I doubt I'll be able to afford the new console any time near its release.

To me it sounds too gimicky, I mean getting Eljiah Wood and The Killers in to debut a new console? I mean come on sounds "publicity stunt" to me.

so true, they run it until the tape falls apart, then hand it off to other stations to tape back together and run. plus, there will always be *cough* less legal *coughs* ways of getting it.

I think it's a bad move, because all of MTV's other attempts are video game stuff have failed. Badly. I'm worried that this might stain the new Xbox. sad.gif

MTV must die. I'm no microsoft fan either, but they could at least give the Xbox a respectable debut, rather than working with those marketing tools.

I dunno I was just guessing since most new consoles are expensive to start with.

The quality of the console will determine success, and everything in the Xbox will be patented, preventing people from stealing the ideas.


I wont be watching it, as I don't have Foxtel in my room, so I'll just come on the net for details about it.

oh, and just to let you all know, i'm betting $100 that it's silver... or at least the controller is. Reliable sources are telling me it'll be that color so I hope i'm right.

It's a good move, I don't really agree with it. But a good move. By revealing it before E3 they stand out. I guarantee they will show "gameplay", and maybe one or two features, but leave the rest to E3, like if it has a harddrive, or what not.

I say, it's for scratching you ass I believe. monocle.gif

There was no reason to bump this, especially since there is already an official topic for next generation consoles just above.
