Sony slams Microsoft content policy

Today, Microsoft sent out invitations to the reveal of the next Xbox. The press event will be held at Microsoft’s Redmond, Washington campus on May 21.

“On Tuesday May 21st, we’ll mark the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment. On that day, we’ll be holding a special press event on the Xbox campus and we invite you to join us via the live global stream that will be available on Xbox.com, Xbox LIVE and broadcast on Spike TV if you are in the US or Canada,” said Microsoft director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb in a blog post.

There has been little confirmed about the new console, code named Durango, but there has been much speculation surrounding its possible Kinect integration, focus on television programming, and possible subscription-based pricing practices.
