Next Xbox reveal tent almost done; rain due in Redmond Tuesday

there's signs being moved around right now on campus that have the next xbox being called just "XBOX" that are being covered up when they are mounted.. *shifty eyed*

I'm waiting to see if Sony and/or Nintendo will do something to crash the event, like flying a banner overhead or something... *evil grin*
