Rejoice! You Won’t Have To Go Far For The Xbox Reveal, We’re Live Streaming It Right Here!

Good news, Xbox fans – read, all of you – when the Xbox Reveal rolls around next Tuesday, 21st May, you won’t have to go far for a live feed from the event because we’ll be hosting it right here.

The event is set to kick off at 10am (PST) / 1pm (EST) / 6pm (BST) / 3am (UTC), and the stream will be live 10 minutes before the start time.

Over the weekend we’ll be creating our very own Xbox Reveal zone on the site, allowing people to head on over to the zone and get involved in the discussion with fellow X360Aers as the conference gets underway.

As a site we’ll be tackling it from multiple angles: Lee will be on the ground in London, tackling a Microsoft UK exec to ask the burning questions that go unanswered during the conference – hopefully not rugby tackling him; Rich on the other hand will be posting the news and the assets up as they drop during the show; while I will be knee deep in the comments with you guys and gals in the Xbox Reveal zone. It’s sure to be exciting.

Look out for our specialist Xbox Reveal zone on Monday, and don’t forget to bookmark that son-of-a-bitch and join us for the festivities on Tuesday. As usual, we’ve got you covered.

Have a great weekend, folks!

  • what time gmt i mean i could look it up but you have left it out
  • So excited! I am also not paying attention to any rumors. Most of those are just posted to ruffle feathers and are usually false.
  • @2: 6pm GMT
  • @#2 - The UK is currently on BST (British Summer Time), i.e. 6pm is when it will air in the UK... which would usually be GMT... if it wasn't summer, ha. *CONFUSING YOU WITH WORDS!!*
  • Great news, the xbox stream through the console has always been crap so i will watch it here this time. Next Tuesday depending on what they reveal and what features the console will have (plus what games at launch), i will know 100% which console to pre-order, Xbox Infnity or PS4
  • MajorNelson tweeted out a very helpful link: mjr.mn/106Olx4 it has all the different times and information!
  • "Don't forget to bookmark that son-of-a-bitch." LOL! Great line. That alone has hooked me into streaming on x360a.
  • @#3 exactly the same here, unless they state in the conference that it is going to be on all the time, not backwards compatible or all the other rumours floating around. If any of it is true and it is announced than you should air your opinon. We should just be excited about the big reveal and what the future holds for the next xbox. Roll on tuesday really cant wait to find out about it all.
  • My internet really suffers when i try and live stream gaming stuff, it's fine when I stream stuff illegally (like wrestling PPVs), which is quite ironic.
  • will prob watch on xbox but it's all good :D
  • Gonna watch it on the Xbox but I look forward to debating in the bazillion threads that will pop up over two hours.
  • I bookmarked that son of a bitch
  • I probably won't bother with the live stream. I'll just catch all of the information and news tidbits after it ends.
  • Looks like I won't be working Tuesday afternoon
  • I have jury duty the time it will be showing, shit.
  • tell them u cant make it cuz of the xbox reveal lol
  • Lets hope it doesn't have the same issues the ps4 launch did.
  • but its on the xbox
  • When will people learn time zones :'[ OT: I'll be watching it on the Xbox Dashboard but if it lags out (somehow) then I'll come here!
  • Fuck Microsoft and their retarded gimmicks. Some stupid video about their next hardware box, whatever. I just want to buy it, they can cram their attempts at promoting it. Nobody cares, we're buying it anyway, just shut up and finish work on it already.
  • @21 Who shit on your cereal?
  • Webb, run for President. We'll fucking vote for you!
  • Hoping for some good launch exclusives! Give us a reason to buy the next console day one!!! The main thing I'm worried about is the controller. I hope they keep it similar to the 360 controller. Because the 360 controller is just... perfect. Well, close, at least.
  • Exciting stuff, roll on wednesday!
  • Grrrr I hate being at work during these events. I often loose track of time and fall behind on my work .
  • There once was a Microsoft Exec called Plectrum, Who lost the D key on his Spectrum, He couldn't turn right, Thought it was shite, So stuck the PC up his rectum. Moral - None. Microsoft - learn from the Surface.
  • So? we can just stream it on our xbox's or xbox.com so waste of site usage.
  • @27 What?
  • Very nice!! will be watching here! I hope Microsoft impresses me...
  • dammit, im usally out the house at 6. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
  • I love being able to camp out for stuff from inside my house. Still gonna pitch a tent and roast some marshmallows so if I miss it, it's probably cause my house burned down.
  • @22 That would be me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvObIj7MKXY
  • Damn it man I've got school but will definitely look on here for all the new xbox news once I get home.
  • @22 It's just tiring wading through their self-serving nonsense and glorified overly-long commercials at every turn. Besides the tiles on the too busy too gimmicky dashboard, which are more than enough advertisement. They're sending out daily system messages about it as well. They're preaching to the choir, and some of us singers want to vomit. They're trying too hard. We're already here and participating. It's like the menus that don't know if we've saved or even if we're playing a game; fix that instead of marketing to the captive base that doesn't need convincing. They might as well be broadcasting Hryb at the dentist. Or another streaming trailer that has to rebuffer every 3 seconds. Just shut your fucking face and go back to work on the next console with whatever moronic name you're going to give it.
  • @35 You know you don't have to eat the shitty cereal, you can get a new bowl if you want.
  • I wonder how many people will stop watching when they hear the word "Kinect"
  • @22(&36) and @33 Just awesome! You made my day (night)! OT: Here's hoping Microsoft brings their A game and follow The Final Bosman's advice (http://www.gametrailers.com/videos/oa2o9o/the-final-bosman-xbox-reveal-dos-and-don-ts)
  • Can't wait. Already changed my shift at work, so that I can be home in time for the reveal. Would be funny if they only revealed Kinect 2.0 though and no info about the next console!
  • I hope there will be a special section for all the next Xbox news on Tuesday, so it doesn't fill up the main home page and I have to scroll down like 30 stories.
  • Seem's like everything lately is streaming so can't wait.
  • I'm so excited for this.
  • Blast, that's at 3:00am in the morning here in Australia...
  • Oh boy I sure can't wait to watch a stream about a piece of shit!
  • Live... "10 minutes FROM start time?" That's not "live..." that's cheering and hollering 10 minutes AFTER the rest of the world has already heard it! I'll be ACTUALLY watching it when it IS "live!" I'm recording it in HD on cable TV, and I'll also check it out on Xbox LIVE - if nothing else... to see how overloaded and bogged-down the feed becomes. I may or may not join-in on the chatter here - even though I'll be 10 minutes ahead, but with my slow, non-existent typing skills... it'll take me 10 minutes just to finish typing a paragraph - which will prevent me from posting spoilers! :-p
  • I think UTC is not right, it should be 5 pm UTC not 3 am. UTC is mostly synonymous with GMT. I take it you meant Australian Eastern Time.
  • wicked good news as will be at work so can watch haha
  • @23 It'd be Prime Minister.
  • Sweet
  • Lee, don't be afraid to ask the tough questions! Make us all proud and make him squirm a little!
  • And 12pm CST for those of us in the Central Time Zone, like myself. Can't wait for Microsoft to address all the rumors that has been piling up so far.
  • Here is everything Xbox has to do for me to skip on their next console all together: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imtsK3aHtqk
  • @52 There's no way you got 13 likes on this site for a video posted in march which only has 19 likes and 300 views
  • @53 I am sorry my performance offends you my good sir it seems that today my milkshake brought all the boys to the yard lol I digress here is the abridge version of what I said in the video 1.Always on DRM 2. No Backwards Compatibility 3.No Used Games 4. Not Honoring current achievements there is more than that but that's abridged for you
  • Glad that they actually picked a decent time for the event. Last time, for the PS4, I wasn't all that happy I had to sit up until gone midnight. GMT, over here.
  • Awesome, I didn't think of looking anywhere else for this coverage:)
  • I'll probably just wait until we get a news catch up collection post on the main page with all the bits and bobs explained. I might watch, but I don't get home from work until about 6pm, sometimes later.
  • Well... now that it was EDITED to be correct!
  • Gulp, that's 3am Australia time -_-
  • @60 Just a tip the vid made from this event will stay put in the xbox live event player for awhile so for gamers that have different time zones can watch it at their leisure later that day as long you have the live event player installed on your trusty xbox360 ;)
  • And last but not least if this new next gen console not offers backwards playability, no used games, and mabye not taken over current earned achievements and sony offers all this with no rescrictions well take a wild geuss what this dude is going to buy?
  • Guess I wont be working on tuesday!
  • looks like ill be live streaming from work!
  • Nooooo I start work 7am till 8pm :'( Someone post some info on these comments please the important stuff like if achieves carry over or you can play 360 games on it thanks
  • Heh, time to get hyped :)
  • There saying its "history in ENTERTAINMENT". Would have been so much happier if this was " "GAMING history" being made.
  • 2 days before the biggest let down in history
  • @#45 - You misunderstood, or maybe I confused people with my post... anyway, the feed will be live 10 minutes before it starts. The show will be live and start at 6pm (BST), and be streamed here, showing the show, as and when it happens.
  • Looking forward to talking with you all on Tuesday! Hoping it's good lol
  • time to call out of work kill my wife lock the kids in the attic and strap my self to my computer just to see how much money i will be saving to get the greatest thing in gaming history.....................................Oh wait this is the xbox reveal i take back everything i said and will be far away from this disaster of a product.
  • #72 Take a chill pill
  • One more rumour thread on Monday...for old times sake?
  • I watch E3 on spike every year so ill just watch this on it as well.
  • @45 you need a job.
  • @74 - Perhaps we should make something up for the hell of it. =P
  • The next Xbox will feature a fully-functional griddle! That is a FACT, according to a source.
  • My question is : will the video be available on X360A afterwards, in case I somehow don't make it for the live stream ? :O
  • New Xbox will be made of chocolate coverd bacon, according to an aunt of my friend who's best pals sister works at MS
  • Look for EA to showcase the UFC licence on next gen, just like they did with Fight Night all those years ago for the 360...I wish I could bet on this, money for jam.
  • Lol do people not know their own regions and times!? It's hilarious to see how far others are off as well !! It you're still wondering #2 GMT is an hour ahead of PST and two hours behind EST so although you've been very mislead and told that its 6pm GMT ... You're definitely gonna miss the live streaming if you listen to that nonsense it will be 11am GMT ... It's hilarious because I'm sure a few ppl in here could put together an Xbox with no instruction yet they can't figure out zoning and times haha that's too funny !!
  • @36 Look at it this way. They haven't bothered to take any time to quash any of these rumors, after all the many many items of non-gaming fluff they've been adding to the console recently. Then they're focusing this as an entertainment reveal. Maybe that means mostly games, but this show has the looks of a half awards show filled with mindless platitudes and a half Apple-style press conference. (really?) Will this end up with all the pageantry of an amateur talent content and no content but bad singing and terrible piano playing? They already made it sound like a Wii, what's next. What I'm saying is that if they're trying this hard for us, the news must be really bad. If they're not doing it at all for us, it must be even worse. The way they're doing it and what they're focusing on just looks... dangerous? Hopefully I'm wrong though. We'll see tomorrow morning/afternoon/night. But just in case it is what it looks like, I'll read the summary later. 'cuz American Idol ain't my thing and anything that even seems like it's something Apple might do is something I stay far far away from. I'm worried they've lost their minds and forgot what this console actually is.
  • @5 Contrary to popular belief, "British Summer Time" does not actually mean it is the summer time! Far from it! Still another month to go :P
  • Does anybody know if I can watch this event after the live stream? I'll be ay work tonight and not finish till 12 and i'd like to watch it without any spoilers
  • Few more hours woohoo :) They better come with something nice.
  • #86 According to Major Nelson, the whole event will be up to stream/download on the XBOX Marketplace in case someone misses it
  • #86 Another option if you have DVR, Spike TV will also be airing the event.
  • Sucks having to be at work during this event. However, I will be getting paid to watch it. :)
  • So where's this "specialist Xbox Reveal zone"? Going to stream from Xbox.com now as I can't find anything.
  • All of this kinect crap is great but what about people who stutter really bad like me and can't say certain things like "snap Skype". Really Microsoft you should think about the 50 million people who stutter and or have problems speaking correctly. ––__––
  • Sorry I meant stuttering and have problems saying certain words 50 million people combined
