Microsoft constructing new venue for Xbox reveal

Microsoft is constructing an entirely new venue for next week's Xbox reveal and press conference, this according to tweets from Microsoft's interactive entertainment chief of staff Aaron Greenberg and Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hryb.

Two images were tweeted via their individual accounts, offering a look at the still-in-construction briefing space for the conference held at Microsoft's Redmond, Washington headquarters. The above image, taken by Greenberg, shows the roofless building from afar. Hryb's image shows a slightly closer look into the still-bare space.

The event was confirmed last month when invites were officially sent out to press. The event is scheduled to take place at 10 a.m. on May 21 and will feature Don Mattrick and the Xbox team on the "Xbox campus for a special unveiling."
