Over the last year, rumours of the next generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft have made gamers brim with excitement.

Of the ‘big two’ Sony was the first to officially announced their next generation console, the PlayStation 4. Since that time, Microsoft has remained mum on the subject of the next Xbox.

However, that all changed last month when Microsoft announced that the next generation Xbox would be revealed on the 21st may 2013. That day has finally come.

Tonight at 19:00 (South African time, GMT+2), Microsoft will finally take the covers off of their next generation console and reveal it to the world.
