Microsoft has sent information on the venue for its today’s mystery event to the press. The event will be held at Milk Studios, Hollywood. This is the first time in the recent past that Microsoft has created so much hype and interest among the press. People have no clue about what Microsoft is going to announce. The wild guesses ranges from Yammer deal to Xbox Surface tablet. We are approximately 6 hours away from the start of the event.

Are you excited ??

    Let’s hope for once that all the hype measures up because if it doesn’t the press and blogosphere are going to have a field day with this!

      Well I don’t see who else they can blame but themself, after all all Microsoft has done is to send out an invite, the rest of the hype comes from themself.

      • Jacob Bearce

        The way Microsoft sent out the invite was designed to create hype. It was a “hush hush” type of invite, with absolutely no information, making it appear extremely secret and interesting. Don’t get me wrong, I still think it’d be stupid for news sites to get upset, but I do see why they would.

           You have the right of it! Even though we’ve shouldn’t really be all that invested, our expectations have risen through the roof!!

          Anything less than some Super-Duper device is sure to be somewhat disappointing!

      Eh, the majority of the press and blogosphere will probably bash Microsoft anyway as they still think it’s hip to do.

        TRUE!

    How about a livestream?

    It better be worth it or else stock price will drop big time!

      No, it won’t.  Microsoft is the most stable tech company in the world.  If it can withstand 10 years of anti-trust settlements, it can withstand a “flop”

    Imo MS will announce strategic alliance with major content providers /film studios, tv channels, book&music publishers etc/. All the contents will be available for their new Metro style ecosystem I.e phone, tablet, Xbox. All of these jump MS to top position in ecosystem war.

      I don’t know about the Ebook stuff (I’d be shocked to see Amazon fall), but I really do think this event is probably going to be about Xbox Video.

    All signs point to a tablet

    I’m guessing the event is about the rename of Zune to Xbox Music and the services behind it; Film and Music content etc. Why else hold it at MILK, it has a ways with pictures O_o

    The last time I got excited about one of these secret announcements was when Sprint announced the Kyocera Echo much to my disappointment!  I’m hoping MS comes through on this.  This is getting too hyped up so I’m preparing for a disappointment but I hope I’m an wrong.

    Most likely a media centric announcement about new partners and content providers for Xbox live and the unveiling of the new Xbox Music and Video services.  That said, I’m still hoping for a Xbox branded tablet that will use those services as well as controller support, via a controller dock?, for the Xbox.

    I hope for Microsoft it is not a tablet.

    I’m sure Apple Execs are probably quite miffed at the moment, what with the level of hoopla Microsoft has generated for their event, something they may have presumed belonged only to them!

    But seriously, this is an unprecedented level of secrecy that they’ve managed to attain/hold so far, that even now a few hours before the event NO One has been able to provide a Definitive Rumour as to what it is!

    Microsoft better be launching a damn spaceship.  A tablet would be very disappointing and a huge kick to the nuts for as much hype as they have pumped up.

      they just sent a invite… the blogs are the ones making rumors, speculations and all the hype. its silly to say “dissapointing” when all they have done its send a weird mysterious invite. so yeah, blame the blogs not microsoft.

  • http://twitter.com/sirleamont Cedric Tallichet

    Maybe official launch of so.cl?

    Lets just remember one thing, all MS has done so far is send an invite, no teasers, countdowns or anything extravagant to promote this. If anyone should be accused of overhyping this its the tech blogs trying to get hits. Don’t blame MS for all the hype.

      MSFT is learning this is how Apple does it. You send an invite and let the media go crazy. Now if MSFT doesn’t have a blockbuster product announcement, nobody will care again.

    Yep its music related. Milk studio is known for music related events.

    I know what will be announced: Bill Gates returns as CEO, Microsoft buys Nintendo and introduces as WiiX_Pad for Xbox :-)

    I agree it could be music related (hence the LA venue)or we all my be completely off…. Or it could be only about bing (http://www.webpronews.com/bings-possibly-leaked-new-summer-of-doing-site-pushes-social-search-2012-06 )
    I’m happy for bing but we may be getting bamboozled thinking it’s hardware related. as the media sharpens their knives….

    “Are you excited ??”

    No.

    Company that came up with that horrible Metro UI and WP can’t possibly create anything to get me excited.

    Is there a stream of this anywhere?

  • trevor

    People that think it is going to be a tablet, sorry to burst your bubble, but they already released info on a tablet at E3. So don’t hope for a tablet…
