XboxEvent.com just registered by the same company that did Xbox's E3 presentations
 
The company Eventcore (formerly ustechs) just registered the Domain [B]xboxevent.com[/B] yesterday (February 21th)
[url]http://whois.domaintools.com/xboxevent.com[/url]

Eventcore plans and executes large events and meetings like 2013 AT&T developer summit ([url]http://www.whois.com/whois/2013devsummit.com[/url]) and they only acquire domains for events they are organizing.
[url]https://www.eventcore.com/[/url]

They also have MS in their list of references. (e.g. [url]https://microsofthostingsummit.com/[/url])
But especially this:
[URL="http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:6-mdBpNjUrAJ:xboxe312.com/+&cd=1&hl=de&ct=clnk&gl=de&client=firefox-a"][B]www.xboxe312.com[/B] (google cache)[/URL] - official site for media registration for E3 2012 Keynote
[QUOTE][IMG]http://www.abload.de/img/untitledmboo7.png[/IMG][/QUOTE]
This event is also managed by Eventcore and the domain was acquired also by them.

Now we compare both sites:

Xbox event around the corner?

kylej 02-22-2013 02:06 PM

Yeah probably.

It's happening.

Izick 02-22-2013 02:09 PM

Said it in the other two threads:

Oh shit I forgot that [B]Gears of War: Judgement comes out on March 19th.[/B] So to me I'm guessing we could see an announcement for the event as early as a week from that game's launch. Microsoft seems pretty savvy about not having any overlap in product announcements and releases so I think it's pretty safe to say we won't see anything before the 19th.

To go into more detail, I bet we're going to see a few surprises from third parties. Possibly Call of Duty X or Battlefield 4, The Walking Dead Season 2, a new Mass Effect or Dragon Age, GTA V, and a few other third party games.

Wiz 02-22-2013 02:10 PM

Microsoft ain't wasting no time!

Battlefield 4 being confirmed but not announced at Sony's presser makes me think it'll be featured, and maybe some other EA stuff.

Other possibilities: GTA V next-gen shown along with some sort of "exclusive content" deal, and a teaser of Respawn's game.

I read that as Call of Duty X Battlefield 4.
I won't count on it though. Third parties weren't full of surprises on PS4 either.

Impeccable 02-22-2013 02:19 PM

Yeah, this is reactionary to Sony.

People keep saying they've planned this months in advance are probably right to some degree but I really think they are feeling the pinch now.

We are in for interesting times.

Decades from now, after the world is in ruin, old men will tell their children about how they fought in the great Console War.

deadlast 02-22-2013 02:21 PM

I'm guessing the 21st of March. Just before pax east. Use pax east to show games and the event to expo the box

Made another comparison and updated the OP - it was pretty much rushed.

Is anyone else less hyped about MS's unveiling of Durango? After PS4, I just don't have it in me.

if ms feels pressured by sony (or vice versa), only good things can come out of this.

Getting ready for the Mattrick gifs. Oh wait, he's a tool.

Less hyped but still excited. They have an advantage now that they've seen what Sony has to offer.

It takes months to set up a reveal like this and I guarantee you that they have had everything planned by the day on how to prepare for it. I just don't see Microsoft not taking this seriously as Sony is. I doubt much has changed with their reveal after Sony's. Also, judging by some MS guy and Major Nelson's tweets, they seemed pretty confident after Sony's reveal.

They totally stole this idea from Sony (who stole it from Nintendo, probably).

Microsoft could win by pulling an Apple and after announcing the XBox 3 (for lack of a better name), Ballmer goes "and this is all available today...right now...at Microsoft stores and online at Microsoft.com."

WOO HYPETRAIN!! WHO'S WITH ME!?

gaming_noob 02-22-2013 02:29 PM

This is great news for us. Looking forward to it.

The usual Halo, Forza and Gears can wait until E3. Please show Alan Wake 2, and what Black Tusk Studios and Rare are doing. I'm hearing really good things from those two. Ryse also, I guess, since that apparently is no longer Kinect focused.

[QUOTE=Meisadragon;48077343]How did you even discover this?[/QUOTE]

I'm always looking out for such stuff so I have several domains I try out from time to time. Xboxevent.com is one of those. Last week I got a 404 and not a blank page so I looked out for the registrar.

EscoBlades 02-22-2013 02:29 PM

It's on like DK.

GlamFM 02-22-2013 02:29 PM

I just hope it plays CDs.

Thatīs very important nowadays apparently.

The Mana Legend 02-22-2013 02:30 PM

This will be more important to the industry than Sony's or Nintendo's conferences. Microsoft has a huge advantage going into next gen, so this event has to be big for them.

Alaskanbullworm 02-22-2013 02:30 PM

Hell yeah, let's get this started
