Although CES 2012 doesn’t officially kick-off until tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m. with the “State of the CE Industry Address and Opening Technology and Evolving Countries (TEC) Keynote,” we don’t have to wait until tomorrow for all the fun to start.  Steve Ballmer, Chief Executive Officer and a director of Microsoft since January 2000 will open this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) tonight at 6:30 p.m.

Ballmer will set-the-stage for the entire CES by discussing where Microsoft is headed as a Company as well as where he believes the future of tech is headed over the next several years.  Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) commented that “Steve Ballmer’s keynote is a great way to kick off the exciting 2012 International CES.”

According to CES “Microsoft has used the CES keynote stage in previous years to unveil innovative new products, including the original Xbox and Avatar Kinect” so what they will use the Keynote address for this year is anybody’s guess.

Will Microsoft take this opportunity to unveil the long-awaited Xbox 720 or will they wait until the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June of this year?  Will Sony attempt to seize the spotlight back with a possible introduction of Playstation 4, or have their Playstation Network breaches taken away too much of their resources?
