Was not taken far enough.
Sony's going to get wrapped.
I think people are less hyped because of all the hyperbole and insane rumours about the next Xbox, it's fair to say some will be legit, but a lot wont, so lets sit tight and look forward to what they're going to announce. Contrary to what some people say, Microsoft do still care about games shockingly enough, and I think some people seem to forget that sometimes and just insist they only care about video streaming or whatever else most of the time

take a look at the agenda:
Xbox Gold is definitely a product.
Invite only means the are still keeping it under the wraps - even their employees need dedicated invitations. So the announcement should be any time but not before/during this event. (which is from march 4th to 7th)
Open for the public maybe, that's usually what open house events are. If so, some Seattle GAFer could perhaps attend and try to find something out.Retail Experience Center Open House and
START Product Showcase
The START FY14 Product Showcase will be held at the Retail
Experience Center (REC), in tandem with the REC Open
House, from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Wednesday, March 6.
Tour the updated REC, meet one-on-one with the WWRS
SMEs and BG representatives, and experience devices,
products and services firsthand. Light snacks and
beverages will be served.
A shuttle service between the Sheraton Seattle Hotel and
the REC will be available starting at 1:30 PM. The time for
the last shuttle from the Sheraton Seattle will be posted at
the shuttle pickup area.
