"Confirmed: All sign-up pages for testing the 'next Xbox' are fake," Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb said. "Do not give them your information--it's a scam."

Microsoft is believed to announce its highly rumored next-generation platform during a one-off media event in April. Rumors about the device have run rampant.

According to past reports, the Xbox 720 may require Kinect and an Internet connection to function, block used games, and feature Siri-like voice recognition, among other features.

Sony beat Microsoft in announcing its next-generation platform. Last month, the company officially revealed the PlayStation 4, along with a new touch-enabled DualShock 4 controller. The console is due out this holiday season, though region availability and pricing has not been divulged.
