Fresh on the heels of Sony’s PS4 unveiling, reports suggest Microsoft is setting up a one-off Xbox 720 event for sometime in April.

As indicated on CVG, an unnamed Sony official has claimed the company’s PS4 reveal “at first caught Microsoft off-guard.”

As a response, Microsoft is likely run a special Xbox 720 meeting later in the year. While the company has declined an official comment, VG247 would like to confirm it has also received word of the April event.

Also, a website has been registered for “Xbox Event” (thanks, Moonwalker1982). The WHOIS database shows XboxEvent.com was registered by US Techs, which works in the “event management industry.”NeoGAF notes the firm was also behind the domain registration for XboxE312.com, which was a site attendees to the firm’s E3 event used to sign up.

Only a matter of time then, we reckon.
