Microsoft: No talk about Xbox One TV features for E3 2013 press event

Microsoft's first reveal of the Xbox One console was slammed by many people, mostly hardcore gamers, for focusing too much on the "future TV" aspects of the hardware and not enough on the game titles. Microsoft has already stated that E3 2013's press event on June 10th will concentrate on the games that are being made for the console.

But will there be any more information about the Xbox One TV set top box features at the E3 event? It doesn't sound like it. Microsoft's director of Xbox Live programming Larry Hryb used Twitter to answer a fan's question on this topic:

That bit of news should indeed please the hardcore gaming crowd. In fact, Geoff Keighley of Spike's GTTV show posted his own Twitter message that indicates non-game features for both Microsoft and Sony at E3 will be on the backburner.

Neowin will be attending and live blogging from all of the big E3 2013 press conferences on June 10th, including the ones held by publishers Electronic Arts and Ubisoft.
