What Microsoft might bring with its Xbox 720 reveal event

nex gen xbox ban

After Sony firing the first shoot in the next, next gen wars Microsoft has yet to respond with its own event.

But rumors going around the internet say that we will soon see an event in either late March (around the time of GDC) or early April.
Microsoft has even recently acquired the domain name xboxevent.com leading to more speculation that an event is coming soon. So based on rumors and just what i know from seeing many of these events over the years, here’s my thoughts (and some wishful thinking) on what Microsoft might bring to the table…

It will all open with what you would expect from any media event, a bunch of boring talk on how great Xbox 360 has been doing, how many systems they have sold world wide, how its been the number one system in north America for the last 27 months in a roll and how great Xbox live is doing. Then they will talk about how far the system has come, and how the kinect extended the life of the system. “But now is time for something new, and here it is” (then Poof we get to see a shiny new Xbox system) “introducing the Xbox infinity the next generation of Xbox”  Then they will show us the new controller with built in touch screen and give the system specs, witch will be just slightly better then the PS4.  “Xbox infinity will be fully backwards. compatible with all Xbox 360 and Xbox arcade games right out of the box and Xbox infinity will not block used games”. Then they will show us Kinect 2.0, (witch will be able to do a lot more exciting stuff, like project the action on your walls). “But we are not done yet introducing the Xbox surface gaming tablet” (witch they will probably reveal at GDC or sometime before hand) with the new Xbox surface you can play all your Xbox infinity games anywhere in your home (because both Nintendo and Sony are doing it so they have to as well).  Now let us show you what the Xbox infinity can do ….

Next they will show us some next generation games that are in development, some tec demos and what the Kinect 2.0 and Xbox Surface can do.

Here is my best guess of what we might see based on rumors, what little info i have acquired and some wishful thinking. In no particular order….
