Forums - Microsoft Discussion - (NextBox) game seen in public, and it is an old friend.

Apparently our old friend Milo hasn't vaporized. He is making the rounds in at least one Southern California Kindergarten class room. Under the supervision of representatives from Kids and Lifestyle Entertainment. The game is being field tested as educational software in the classroom, and this might have all gone entirely unnoticed if it weren't for a great stoke of fortune. In the form of a a fourty something hispanic custodian. Who just so happened to need to fix a broken sink in the classroom, because one of the children decided to cram playdough down the drain. None of the adults in the room paid him any mind. He wasn't sent away, or even asked to sign a nondisclosure agreement. Chalk one up for stereotypes I suppose, because our friend is both fluent in english, and just so happens to be a ardent gamer. 

In other words one of us was actually let inside that room for a protracted period of time, and he made the best of that time while trying to seem uninterested. He immediately recognized the character on the fifty inch television they brought. He also took note of a entirely new Kinect bar underneath the television, and he saw the studio name on binders, and on letterhead that was spread out on the teachers desk. He even got to listen to the teacher, and the lady who was actually field testing the product, and he heard the most important thing of all. When the teacher asked when it would come out, the representative told her that it would be showed publicly in five months. So there you have it right there guys when the new Xbox will be revealed to the public. Sometime in late March or early April. 

As for the game and tech which is the most important thing. The new Kinect has a feature that the representative referred to as Dazzle. At least she told the teacher that Milo was about to Dazzle the students. Right after that Milo pulled out a old style camera. You know the kind with flash bulbs, and when he took that picture he swears the whole room lit up. He thinks there is some kind of projecter in that bar. At one point he even saw the children chasing some kind of object on the floor, but he couldn't be sure if it was something the console was doing, or something that Milo told the kids to do.

Anyway that is about all he could get for us in the ten or so minutes he was in the room, and he was dragging it out at that. He did say that if both of them had left the room. He would have gone sixty frames per second on everything in the room, but they never did. This is a close friend of a close friend that I actually talked with online, and I don't think for a minute he wasn't telling the gods honest truth. Anyway he says he will try to get a chance to take some snapshots if they are back again today.

I can believe the April/May timescale, the other stuff sounds interesting

The projector thing does sound a bit interesting, though not for actual gaming... I think M$ is going to do something interesting, but it doesn't seem like something that will keep me interested

I'll believe it when I see it announced. Just because you have "close friends" and "word-of-mouth" does not mean anyone will believe you. And why would a childcare center have Milo? You do realize that in childcare now (that State mandates) that you have to log the children's playtime with electronic devices including handhelds (even their own DS', iPods, iPads, etc.) and television. I very doubt Microsoft would let children test this.

... Essentially what I suggested was the likely event for Microsoft to announce their next XBox

Man, things are starting to heat up! If Kinect 2.0 could project something close to a hologram that would be soooo sweet!! No need for stupid glasses to play games on the x3ox!!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.
