Sony’s PS4 reveal certainly laid down the gauntlet for the next-gen consoles, but with so many criticizing the lack of an actual machine getting shown, should we expect Microsoft to pull more out of the bag?
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter isn’t quite so optimistic in terms of what software Microsoft will be willing to show off at the event, but he does think we’ll see the console itself.
In fact, he believes we’ll get a next-gen Xbox reveal that’s pretty much the same as what we saw at Sony’s PS4 event, just with Microsoft’s new machine at the forefront.
“I’m sure we will get the same thing we got at the Sony event, but we’ll probably see an actual box at this one,” explained Pachter.
“I also expect that there will be at least one woman involved in the presentation ;-)” joked Pachter in reference to the complete lack of woman at Sony’s PS4 event.
Microsoft’s event is scheduled for May 21st at 6pm GMT and you’ll be able to stream the event live over Xbox Live.
