While no concrete information has leaked for Tuesday;s reveal of the next Xbox console, fans now have at least a slightly clearer idea of what to look forward to come May 21.

Microsoft interactive entertainment chief of staff Aaron Greenberg recently took to Major Nelson's podcast to shed a little bit of light on the company's Xbox plans for the next few months. According to Joystiq, the next generation of Xbox will be shown off in two separate segments; Tomorrow's event will be all about the hardware itself, while news on the first next-generation Xbox games will likely have to wait until E3.

"It's a lot of laying the foundation, and then just a couple weeks later we go to E3, and E3 is all about the games. It's going to be tons of exclusives [and] world premieres," says Greenberg during the podcast.

Greenberg explained that a good portion of tomorrow's event will focus on the team responsible for creating the new Xbox, and the process that went into bringing the machine to life. This may come as a disappointment to those who are eager to know what types of exclusive titles will be available for the platform, but the move makes sense on Microsoft's part given the close proximity to E3.

If you didn't know already, the big Xbox Reveal will be taking place tomorrow, May 21 at 10 am PDT/1 pm EDT. We already have our predictions for what the conference may bring to the table, from the future of Kinect to the possibility of new apps. Fortunately, all rumors and speculation will finally be silenced when Microsoft shows off their new creation to the world.  What are you expecting?
