Excitement and speculation abound after Microsoft's Director of Programming for Xbox Live and online community go-to guy, Larry Hyrb (aka 'Major Nelson'), posted an E3 countdown on his blog.
It's a bit of a stretch to go from that to instantly assuming this is the starting gun for the next Xbox's unveiling. That hasn't stopped everyone and their dog from speculating that that is indeed precisely what the countdown is for, and given the on-going rumours that Microsoft and Sony are both set to reveal their next generation consoles soon you wouldn't want to bet against it.
A Portal themed console? Now that really is expecting too much.
158 days until we get to see Microsoft's next console? Yes please.
