Microsoft to hold Xbox 360 press event this week

Microsoft will hold an Xbox 360 press conference in San Francisco, this week. The event is believed to take place this Thursday, February 24. Apparently, it’ll make Xbox 360 owners “really happy”.

Speaking on his latest podcast, Xbox LIVE’s Major Nelson said: “Just telling you guys, you’re going to be really happy when you hear all the news, that’s all I can say.”

While Nelson didn’t reveal a date, tweets from Microsoft’s Aaron Greeberg and GameTrailers TV’s Geoff Keighley have already outed it. They also mention the event will focus on “core games”.

“Yes we have a big core games event planned for Feb 24th,” Greenberg reportedly said on Twitter.

“Not sure but I’m not aware of a big Xbox presence at GDC. They have a press event the week before for undisclosed titles,” Keighley tweeted.

Both Greenberg and Keighley’s comments have been removed from Twitter.
