Xbox LIVE’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has posted quite a teasing countdown on his blog, ticking down down the days till June 11, 2013 for E3 2013 with the tagline “And it’s on…” The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is still a few months away but many see this countdown as a sign that Microsoft intends to debut its next-generation Xbox, the Xbox 720 at the event. It’s been seven years since Microsoft released the Xbox 360 and the console has sold over 70 million units, which competes against Sony’s PlayStation 3. Sony’s next-generation console, the PlayStation 4 is also rumored to make an appearance at this year’s E3.
With E3 five months away, Microsoft seems keen to get gamers pumped up for their latest console after they shifted their attention to the Windows 8 release a few months ago.
