Game developer Electronic Arts could very well have ruined Microsoft's big surprise for the upcoming E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles where the company might be launching its next generation Xbox.
Gaming website Spong.com reports that it has received what appears to be a draft press release (the site doesn't say too much about its sources) for the upcoming game Need for speed, which will "simultaneous ship with the Xbox2 platform" late 2005.
The logical conclusion obviously is that Microsoft plans to start shipping its new console by the end of this year.
But the lack of sources should make anyone cautious about the credibility of this report.
Also, it has been awfully quiet about Microsoft's next generation Xbox, which leads to believe that work on the console isn't done yet. If any new console will be discussed at E3, it will be the Playstation 3 for sure. Xbox 2… I wouldn't bet on it.
