    Let the anticipation begin.

    My money is still on the new Xbox being named simply "Xbox".

    So, basically doing a 180 on naming? Big Smile

    I thought the tent was a temporary structure built for Build?

    That tent looks super-ominous. It's probably the fact that it's a gigantic black pyramid.

    Will this be streamed on C9?

    So hey, bets. Illumiroom, at launch or as a mid-lifetime boost (sort of like Kinect)? I think the technology looked advanced enough to warrant a launch in november, but it'll probably drive up the cost of the console when it already comes bundled with Kinect. Then again, the rumored $499 price is pretty steep so who knows what's included. They could make it a separate accesory, but eh.

    Also: awkward fake families reading from autocue, yes or no? Ha, of course there will be.

    Other surprises? Personally I'm hoping for a way more advanced version of Smartglass, where the 360 version was sort of a test and they're now coming out with the real thing.

    Logo looks like a sphere. It'll be interesting to see what the mr box and co have been up to. Not that time will permit play but... Smiley

    Whatever they do, don't call it "the new xbox"

    That's just the angle I took it. It's just a regular marquee-style tent. 3 of the sides and the roof are white, but the side facing The Commons (and the media entrance) is black.

    10 minutes to go folks!

    I've heard rumors the name might be "Xbox 8":

    • Microsoft recently trademarked the name.
    • 8 on its side is Infinity
    • It's twice 4, which is the new PlayStation. Is that our way of saying we're twice as good?
    • It follows absolutely no pattern, just like the name 360 Wink

    Watching it on the 360, bandwidth is fine here.
