Viewers of MTV are set to receive an exclusive sneak peak at the next-generation Xbox console and games, with the first showing taking place on May 12th in North America.

Microsoft's plans for the next Xbox will be revealed during a 30 minute show, with details of the "always connected, always personalised and always in high definition" vision which are key to the forthcoming machine. A number of first glimpses at brand new titles and the future of Xbox Live will feature in the programme, alongside a performance by LA-based The Killers.
