Looking to get a peek at the next Xbox? So am I. And like me, you probably want to know the best place to watch and get live coverage. Sure, you can follow the stuff live on Twitter, but that’s already getting pretty noisy. So, I’m compiling a list here that I’ll be updating as I find more stuff.
THE official home for the #XboxReveal is, of course, Xbox.com. You’ll also probably want to keep an eye on the Xbox Wire at http://news.xbox.com for the official press releases/statements about today’s event.
What kind of Xbox event would this be if we couldn’t watch live on our consoles? Just make sure your console is connected to the internet, you’re signed into Xbox Live, and look for the tile on the home screen.
Windows Phone: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/live-video-player/0ae9f9fa-29b2-4318-845f-4e24ce52ca94
Speaking of official, Microsoft has released the Live Video Player app for Windows Phone devices, so you can watch the announcement live on your phone. It’s very similar to the Live Video Player for the Xbox 360 if you’ve ever watched events there.
Major Nelson: http://twitter.com/majornelson
This guy is the real deal. No, seriously. He’s Xbox Live’s Director of Programming, and an invaluable official news source for all things Xbox. He’ll be posting things as they come throughout the announcement, so be sure to stick to his feed for the latest news (possibly even things that aren’t directly announced). Afterward, be sure to check out his blog at http://majornelson.com for recaps and other news.
Engadget always has AWESOME live blogs of tech events, including the big conferences like Build, Google I/O, and WWDC. Between great coverage, awesome photos, and witty commentary, these guys know what’s up.
Neowin has the official video feed embedded on their site for this one. They’ve also got quite a bit of info up about the rumors leading up to this one, so you’ll definitely want to check them out.
Spike TV (check your local listings)
Spike will be providing live TV coverage for the event today, so if you’re near a big, pretty TV, tune in to them to get the latest, including behind-the-scenes coverage after the official event. You can find out more at http://www.spike.com.
If there’s one site I visit every single day without fail, it’s WPCentral. They’re my go-to home for all things Windows Phone. And since Windows Phone is such a huge part of the Xbox platform now, they’re doing a live blog of today’s event. Check them out!
