Microsoft has opened an official news portal pertaining to all things Xbox.

The newly-launched Xbox Wire features sections devoted to the Xbox 360; E3; games; entertainment; and the big May 21 reveal.

The site is currently in beta, according to a letter from editor Lisa Gurry, and is expected to go official on – oh hey, May 21. There’s a surprise.

“We have so much good news to share with you,” Gurry said of the new blog.

The site will occasionally host posts from Microsoft executives as well as lesser-known members of the Xbox team. Larry Hryb – better known as Major Nelson – will also contribute.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
