The internet has been buzzing about the Microsoft E3 2013 plans, since everyone figures 2013 will be the year of the next Xbox. (At the moment, we only know it as Durango.) That assertion has just been lead more credence thanks to Microsoft’s latest move. Its Major Nelson blog is now home to the Microsoft E3 2013 countdown clock.
The Microsoft E3 2013 countdown clock is fairly non-descript. It’s just sitting there, counting down to June 11, 2013. That’s the first day of E3 2013. There’s bad news for anyone hoping to try and use this countdown clock to determine the time of the Microsoft E3 2013 press conference. It isn’t set to any special time. It will just run out the moment June 11, 2013 begins. I’m pretty disappointed about that – the least Microsoft could have done was use this to secretly reveal the start time of its announcement!
That’s really all there is to know about the Microsoft E3 2013 countdown clock. Well, that and there are 158 days and some hours until E3. This kind of move most assuredly means the next Xbox will be revealed at the press conference. In fact, there’s yet another fact that helps back that rumor up. At the moment, there is only one Xbox 360 exclusive game scheduled for 2013 – Gears of War: Judgement. It seems odd to do so little for the company’s major console. That is, unless it has decided to scrap the current console, move to a new one and put all of its shiniest games on it instead.
So, anyone really excited for E3 2013 after seeing Microsoft’s E3 2013 clock?
