IllumiRoom, Forza 5 All Making Appearances At Xbox Reveal Tonight
We’re just a few hours away from the big event, taking place in Redmond today. Microsoft is putting the final touches on what should be an interesting console reveal, as the PS4’s main competition takes centre stage. The question on everyone’s mind though; what will Microsoft be focusing on?
Kinect would be a good guess, but not the answer most people are hoping for. What about IllumiRoom though, the Kinect-enabled project that has the ability to alter your room and project the game around you. The proof of concept video released a few months back piqued a lot of people’s interest, mainly because it actually has some practical uses for serious gaming. According to Windows blogger Paul Thurrott, who is known for his accuracy, Microsoft are prepared to show off this tech at tonight’s reveal.

He also goes on to say something about a subsidized next-gen Xbox being scrapped. So much for that then.
On top of this, McLaren made a surprise announcement and advised everyone to tune into Microsoft’s stream tonight. Out of the kindness of their own hears? I think not. McLaren most probably has something to do with the reveal themselves, which lead many to believe that Forza 5 would be announced as a next-gen exclusive. These rumours were nearly turned into fact when Microsoft filed for the trademark of the name Forzavista. Then again, it would be crazy to think that a new Forza title wasn’t on the way to the next Xbox.
Like I said, we’re only a few hours away now. Keep it locked on eGamer tonight, as we’ll be bringing you all the news from the reveal straight after the stream has ended.
