So how can you watch and follow the Xbox Reveal event? For this special press event, Microsoft will be streaming live the show on Xbox. You can also participate by going to Xbox Live, and Spike TV will be covering the conference for people located in the US and Canada.

What to expect from the announcement? Check out my previous article full detailed on this topic, but basically we finally know which rumors and leaks were true or false. For the very first time will see the Xbox game console design (something that Sony didn’t do with Playstation 4). We’ll have a better understanding on the hardware inside the new Xbox, which operating system will power this game console, and probably will also hear more about the future of Illumiroom. But not everything as Microsoft has to save some information for the upcoming E3 game conference.
