Microsoft Australia to make a “major announcement” on Wednesday

Posted by Aaron on Monday, March 26, 2007

The Sydney Morning Herald has posted a article called ‘Microsoft keeps quiet on Xbox ‘elite’ and in it they say Microsoft is going to make a major announcement on Wednesday. Here is a sample of the article:

Microsoft Australia will on Wednesday make a “major announcement” to coincide with the first birthday of the Xbox 360.

While unconfirmed, all signs suggest Microsoft will introduce a revamped “Elite” version of the games console, with new features such as a larger hard disk drive and a built-in HDMI connector.

“The Elite will be limited quantities only; that may be as much or as little as a couple of hundred thousand,” Engadget wrote.

“Eventually Elite hardware (in white plastics) will take the role of the Xbox Premium … after the Elite is launched and sold out, future Xbox Premiums will have 120GB / HDMI.”

Brian Crecente, editor of the authoritative gaming blog Kotaku, said: “I suspect that this new model will hit in April, with official word coming as early as next week.”

US media are being briefed by Microsoft on Tuesday. The subject of the briefing is unclear, but Engadget editor Ryan Block said he was “fairly sure” it would be the Elite.

A Microsoft spokesman declined to comment on “rumour and speculation”, but last week said there would be a “major announcement” made on Wednesday.
