Microsoft teases public Xbox One June 10th event in LA

Last week's reveal of the Xbox One is now history but two weeks from now, Microsoft will reveal more about their plans for their next game console at their pre-E3 2013 press conference in Los Angeles on June 10th, followed by the actual E3 trade show at the LA Convention Center on June 11-13.

Both of those events are not open to the general public. However, it sounds like Microsoft will be giving anyone in the LA area a chance to check out the Xbox One console and controller very soon. In the latest Major Nelson podcast, Microsoft's Larry Hryb stated that Microsoft will hold some kind of event on Monday evening on June 10th, after its E3 2013 press conference.

That's all the information we have at the moment, but Hryb promises that all will be revealed soon so if you live or will be in the LA area on that date, you might want to clear your calendar.

During that same podcast, Hryb also indirectly addressed some of the comments made by gamers that last week's Xbox One presentation didn't show enough about games. He stated:

The team here, we are gamers. We are just like you. A lot of us are just like you. So we wanted to build a machine and a console that we can use and we would love and take us into the future. It is a fantastic gaming machine.

Hopefully Microsoft's E3 2013 presentations will clear some of the questions that the company have yet to answer about the Xbox One.

Now that's just bad planning given that it's the same day as Apple's WWDC Keynote. Would have been better to pick another day so they had the tech news cycle to themselves.

i'd rather pay attention to x1, ps4, and wiiu anyways...
besides...like macro said, two targets, so it's not really going to matter.

Microsoft got a reason for that day. It's the day before E3, they do it every year.
It's wrong by Apple to pick that date since they knew it's the day before E3 and press conference from Microsoft and Sony will happen.

Bad timing on Apple's part. They're competing with news from Xbox, Playstation, Wii, EA, Ubisoft, Activision that day. Even if Apple gets a lot of attention it is going to be mixed with other news, which is not what Apple is used to. Risk of getting buried and Tim Cook looking weak are also there.

And E3 goes on for a week with the impressions of the first hands on of the new console generation and tons of new games. Looks to me like Cook screwed up again.
