Microsoft is planning to showcase its upcoming Xbox spring lineup at a media event to be held in San Francisco on February 25th. The event will feature Xbox head Phil Spencer, and will offer hands-on opportunities with “the best games and platform experiences launching this spring on Xbox and Windows 10”, according to an email sent out to invited media.

We’ve already seen CES come and go, and E3 isn’t until June, so holding a showcase to highlight what’s coming in the first half of 2016 makes some sense, building up momentum even before the annual big games blowout event at E3.

Microsoft has just released its first Xbox One update of the year, including lots of social improvements and new features like an Avatar Store and more, and it looks like we can look forward to not only new games, but more improvements to the Xbox One experience, and more gaming experiences on Windows 10, with many of them coming well before E3.
