Microsoft Warns of ‘Test Next Xbox’ Scam Sites

Posted on March 14, 2013 AT 05:23am

Microsoft has warned gamers to steer clear of several “test the next Xbox” sites that have begun springing up. Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb, director of programming for Xbox Live, took to Twitter to issue a warning:

Several rumors suggest that Microsoft will finally announce its next generation console to the world in April. For those that are wondering no website is ever going to allow you to test a new console from either Microsoft or Sony, they have never offered public testing and never will.

Also steer clear of any sites offering free Microsoft Points just for sharing a link, these are also fake and only lead to severe spam with no free Points at the end.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
