Microsoft is set to dominate the Games Developer's Conference, taking place this week in San Jose, with a suddenly enhanced line-up being revealed.
Lead Xbox evangelist J Allard will now take the stage alongside overlord Robbie Bach, with a keynote speech aimed at highlighting productive working practices amid escalating development costs, entitled, Turning Innovation Into Impact.
Industry chat now points towards a retrospective look at the emergence of the Xbox, as well as a glimpse of several technical demonstrations from the next incarnation of Xbox hardware.
Interestingly, we unearthed a flyer - said to be an official print from Microsoft - featuring Raven, the tech demo sweetheart with the dancing robot buddy that wowed crowds during the first ever glimpse of the original Xbox. If our image is real - something we cannot verify at this moment - does this make for the first ever Xbox 2 picture?
Tenuous indeed, but interesting nonetheless.
