New Xbox to be revealed today in Redmond

REDMOND, Wash. (Metro) — Microsoft takes the wraps off its new Xbox today in Redmond, Washington.

The successor to the Xbox 360 could feature unprecedented mixes of video experiences and game experiences, like having a video Skype call with your friends while you’re playing a game.

There are some concerns in the gaming community about how the new Xbox might require an always-on Internet connection.

There is no word right now about the official name of the console, its price or its release date.

It’s expected to be available by the holidays.
