Today, Microsoft has announced a partnership with MTV to premiere the upcoming Xbox 2 (360?) on the MTV channels in the United States, Asia Pacific and Europe. The system will be showcased in these areas during a 24-hour period.

Debuting the next Xbox on MTV will be a first for the console gaming industry and the video game industry as a whole. Normally, debuts of this magnitude are reserved for the big gaming-related conferences like E3.

According to Microsoft, Elijah Wood, who played Frodo in the Lord Of The Rings Movies, will host the debut, which is called “MTV Presents: The Next Generation Xbox Revealed”. Microsoft’s release indicates the global broadcast will premiere Thursday, May 12, at 9:30 p.m. EDT in North America and on Friday, May 13 in other regions around the globe.

“Just as MTV revolutionized the way the world experiences music, the next-generation video game console from Xbox will spark a revolution in how consumers experience games and other forms of digital entertainment,” said Peter Moore, corporate vice president of worldwide marketing and publishing for Xbox at Microsoft.

“We are ecstatic about our alliance with MTV and unveiling a video game platform in a way that has never been done.”

Times for MTV’s premiere appear below:

North America: Thursday, May 12, at 9:30 p.m. (21:30)

Japan/Asia: Friday, May 13, at 11:30

Europe: France: Friday, May 13, at 19:00

Germany: Friday, May 13, at 19:00

Italy: Friday, May 13, at 23:30

Netherlands: Friday, May 13, at 19:30

Poland: Friday, May 13, at 21:00

Portugal: Friday, May 13, at 20:00

Romania: Friday, May 13, at 20:00

Scandinavia: Friday, May 13, at 22:00

Spain: Friday, May 13, at 21:30

U.K.: Friday, May 13, at 20:00

Australia: Friday, May 13, at 19:00

However: If the rumors are accurate, Microsoft isn’t expected to begin Xbox 2 (360?) sales until the 2005 holiday season. If this is remotely true, why are they debuting their upcoming console so early?
