UPDATED: Wow. We're here, the first look at Call of Duty: Ghosts, the next-generation of Call of Duty. Gone is the same engine that has been retooled for nearly a decade now... a truly next-gen engine is at play with some incredibly impressive graphics.
So, Call of Duty: Ghosts is pretty much bringing technology to the level of Battlefield. Infinity Ward say they needed next-gen consoles to bring us 'lean' and jumping over walls so you 'feel it'. Guys and girls, they have mo-capped dogs - you read that right, they put motion capture on dogs.
Updated title, DLC will be hitting the Xbox One first, not COD: Ghosts itself.
Microsoft of course want to take the time during their next-generation console, the Xbox One, to talk games. FIFA, Madden NFL, NBA Live and UFC are all to launch on the Xbox One from EA and will be "revolutionary" and "fundamentally change the way you play".
EA Sports Ignite, an all-new gaming engine is unveiled from EA for the Xbox One. The graphics are getting ramped up, and now we're going to see some next-generation gaming from EA and their sports games. Ignite features 'true player motion' for some fluid looking characters in-game, the advanced processing power in the Xbox One allows the games from Ignite to have much smarter artificial intelligence (AI).
Video on demand, Skype, multi-tasking, gestures, voice control - it's all here on the Xbox One. Games, Movies, Music, Web, Skype and Live TV... it's right here on the Xbox One. The next-generation of gaming, and the future of intelligent TV.
The amount of tech that has been pumped into the Xbox One is incredible, and we haven't even reached the games yet - this is impressive.
Microsoft have just unveiled their Xbox One, which features a 5 billion transistors. Specs-wise, we have 8GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, USB 3.0, Wi-Fi Direct, Blu-ray, 802.11n. Impressive, PC-like specs... what else do we have?
The Xbox One architecture is key: very easy access for developers to gain access to the hardware, the kernel of Windows, and what connects these two operating systems is something only Microsoft is capable of - which changes everything - the capabilities to switch between apps, games, and media is thanks to the built-in next-gen Kinect sensor. The Kinect camera captures 1080p video, finally.
The Xbox One will remember what you were last doing, with the entire console controllable by your voice. Saying 'watch TV' to your Xbox, bumps up live TV to your eyes. Not only that, you can use "Instant Switching", where you say "Xbox Game" and then "Go To TV" and then "Go To Music", followed by "Watch TV" and there are literally seconds between each new command. Impressive.
New gestures are at play thanks to next-gen consoles, with some impressive gestures at play.
After nearly eight years since the Xbox 360 launched, Microsoft have just unveiled its successor, the Xbox One. The Xbox One is Microsoft's highly anticipated next-generation console, and will feature a see you, the user, the center of the entire console.
The Xbox One is an all-in-one console, no Xbox 720, no Xbox, just Xbox One. This is the next-generation of console from Microsoft. The Xbox One is simple, instant and complete.

Despite rumors that Microsoft's new IllumiRoom is not ready for demo, we just might see the new technology make an appearance at today's Xbox event after all. Gaming site CVG is reporting that a demo will be shown off at the event that is scheduled to begin at 1PM today.
IllumiRoom is Microsoft's next big thing in gaming. It appears to project an extended view of the game onto the surounding walls of the room your TV is in to provide a truly immersive experience. We saw this new feature being shown off at CES earlier this year, but rumors quickly surfaced saying that it would not make an official debut until Q4 this year at the earliest.
While we are still unsure if IllumiRoom will make an appearance today, we know for a fact that the new Xbox will be unveiled today and we will be providing up to the second coverage in the form of a Live Blog, as well as news posts as they happen. Stay tuned to TweakTown for all the Xbox news today!
Microsoft are just hours away from unveiling their next-generation Xbox, and now we have DigiTimes reporting that they are already shipping out orders in small volumes to certain clients, with mass shipments to start in Q3, with the peak shipments hitting in the following quarter.
The news comes from DigiTimes' sources in the upstream supply chain, who expect "Xbox orders to strongly boost their performances in the second half as the orders' profits will grow along with the volume".
We're nearly here - and yet, my excitement is continuing to build - the next-generation Xbox from Microsoft is to be unveiled mere hours from now. The entire news staff of TweakTown will be all over the Xbox event, covering it with a live blog and news posts.
The event kicks off at 1pm ET, so be sure to check back this afternoon for your next-gen Xbox details. What are you hoping to see? Here are some of our thoughts on the next-generation console from Microsoft, but I'd like to be totally surprised, and to see Microsoft go up and above the PS4 announcement with some incredible games and details on the console. Hopefully we get to actually see the console, not like the PS4 event.
