Microsoft teases 'Big' Xbox 360 announcement for E3

Microsoft Game Studios executive Phil Spencer has said that the company has a "huge" Xbox 360 announcement in the works for next month's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

Speaking in an interview with Gamespot, Spencer talked up the console, revealing that it's not quite finished with the Xbox 360 yet.

"I think the [Xbox 360] is going to be very vibrant for many years. In fact, we have a huge, I think it's huge, [Xbox 360] announcement for E3 that I keep wanting to talk about, but I can't," Spencer said. "I think it will surprise people. I loved what we did last year with Minecraft; bring Minecraft to the box; six million units later it's kind of a beast. I think there's a lot of life in the [Xbox 360] for years to come."

What could this huge announcement be? A price cut perhaps or maybe it's Minecraft 2? After all he did specifically mention Minecraft.

We'll find out next month. What do you think it could be?

Either a price cut or the rumoured "Xbox Mini", which doubles up as a backwards compatability add on for the XBone. Can't imagine they're going to spend resources on a major new 360 title at this point to be honest.

The announcement has been leaked. It is that the 360 is still the main console. the Xbox One announcement was all a joke at Shep's expense and their new geneation achine will be announced formally at E3 2016

From what he has said it sounds to me they are thinking of bringing something else big on PC across to Xbox maybe WOW or starcraft something like that

Can see them doing that just to compete with Sony getting Diablo 3.

This is good, they cant go putting all their Xs (eggs) into the ONE box! Once the new console takes off the 360 will fade. Long live Xbox 360!

I hope Microsoft will not be using Stream time on 360, since they really need to clear up the Used Games rumor and well announce some exclusive that ain't Halo or Gears of War
