Microsoft coy on 'leaked' Xbox 360 logo

Following a spate of recent leaks, none of which Microsoft has been prepared to comment upon, news reaches us from the USA that the Xbox 360 next-generation console logo will feature swirly green lines on a white background.

Microsoft is, er, unprepared to comment, reminding this website that a logo has not been revealed.

"We have not announced the logo for our next-generation platform. I would recommend you tune in to MTV on the 13th of May if you're curious," a spokesperson told us this morning.

What's interesting about this particular "leak" is that the swirly design is very similar to that emblazoned upon the shiny invites Microsoft has been distributing to the press for its pre-E3 press conference on May 16th. It also matches up with an image seen in the trailer for the MTV show.

You can take a look at the logo - originally posted on GamerCentric - and a photo of the Microsoft E3 invite side by side over at our sister site,

As you can see, there's an uncanny resemblance. The question, of course, is whether someone's simply taken a look at that and fashioned an image to fit. We'll know for sure on May 13th.
