Barcelona hosts X06

Microsoft's "Xbox brand experience" will be held in Spain in late September; company promises new details for the future of 360, PC.


Microsoft's European vacation will continue in Barcelona, Spain, which was today confirmed as the site for X06, this year's international gathering for all things Xbox. The event will take place September 27 and 28 of this year at an as-yet undisclosed location.

The X0 events, almost always held in Europe, have been used as an opportunity for Microsoft to make the latest announcements regarding the Xbox line of products, business dealings, and upcoming games, or as Microsoft calls it, "an Xbox brand experience." According to the company, the tradition will continue with "exclusive new announcements" and "next-generation gaming experiences."

This will be the second trip to Spain for the X0 series, which was previously held in Seville, Spain, in 2002. Last year, the event was held in Amsterdam and focused almost exclusively on the Xbox 360. The only time the X0 series was held outside of Europe was in 2004, when it took place in Toronto, Canada.

Microsoft has said it will release more information about the event in the coming weeks.
