Microsoft dropping hints about New Xbox at E3 2011?

We have some interesting news for you now, and it could, just could be a hidden message that Microsoft may be planning to reveal new Xbox hardware at this year’s E3 event which kicks off in June. The company are running a new promotion, in which students will receive an Xbox 360 free when they buy a Windows 7 computer.

Sounds pretty good doesn’t it – and it is. As reported over at CrunchGear, students just need to pay over $699 for a Windows 7 computer and then Microsoft will also hand you a 4GB console for absolutely nothing it seems.

This deal will start at the end of the week on Sunday May 22nd, and Microsoft states in their press release that users will be able to choose from a good variety of computers to match different style opinions, although it wasn’t stated whether the deal specifically applies to desktops, laptops or both.

It’s a pretty bold move by Microsoft, and one which doesn’t appear to have any catches. A free Xbox 360 console with every computer purchase over $699 is music to our ears, but are Microsoft seeing this as a business move?

It’s clear that based on this move, they want to shift as much Xbox 360 hardware as possible, so it’s logical to assume that they may be planning to announce something BIG at E3 2011. We’ve already had the Wii 2 announced, will we see the Xbox 720? It’s starting to get exciting folks. Let us know your thoughts on this.
