Well, well, well … it looks like Microsoft is definitely looking to raise its presence in the music industry if this news is any indication.
Tomorrow, May 21st, is going to be a very important day for Microsoft as it is set to reveal what the future of our living rooms will be looking like thanks to the next generation of the Xbox; and to help gear up the excitement the Xbox team has announced a new interactive TV show for the platform.
It’s called The Music Room and it will be exclusive to the Xbox and will come as a two-part show hosted by Laura Jackson and Carl Barât that will be used to showcase the music of people like: Everything Everything, Don Broco, and Deep Swim.
You will need to be an Xbox Gold subscriber to watch the show that will premier on May 29th at 8:30 pm. At this point we don’t know if there are any plans to continue with the project after the first two shows but apparently Xbox users will be able to vote on the outcome of the program as it airs.
Just one note – the original post at VentureBeat doesn’t mention if the show is limited to certain locales but in the video preview below Jackson does say “Europe-wide” but no mention of other countries; so I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
