Microsoft To announce Xbox Game Room At CES (Rumor)

Today’s Microsoft CES keynote is likely to make mention of the arrival of the Xbox Game Room, a retro-themed game space, at least according to a video interview with Microsoft’s Robbie Bach, president of the company’s Entertainment and Devices Division.

More specifically, that’s from the quickly pulled video, originally posted on Microsoft’s On10.net and Channel 9 video blogs. In that video, Bach is said to have discussed a “one stop shop for retro games,” according to a tipster who saw the video before it was pulled.

If true, that sure sounds a lot like the Atari and Intellivision game-filled arcade populated with Xbox Live Avatars that leaked in a survey late last year. At the time, the names RetroCade, RetroGame, Game Preserve, Game Gallery, Tower of ROM, Tower of Game(s), Classics and Classics LIVE were all competing against what sounds like the final winner, Game Room.

Microsoft’s CES keynote is scheduled to kick off at 6:30 PM PST. We’ll be liveblogging the event from the show, so check back to see just how much of a rumor this really is.

Thanks to Ian for the heads up!
