It’s being reported this morning that the next Xbox and the PlayStation 4 will be revealed at this years E3.
According to MCV, this will mark the very first time in the show’s 17-year history that three rival console formats will be on show.
From what we can gather, neither console will actually arrive this year and we suspect that if anything, both are just being revealed in order to take some of the spotlight off of Nintendo’s Wii U, which is expected to arrive before Christmas.
It’s much more likely that a new Xbox and therefore a new PlayStation will aim for a Xmas 2013/early 2014 launch.
MCVuk editor, Ben Parfitt, seemed very sure about the news, saying via his twitter account.
“You have my personal word on this – the source is exemplary, 100% concrete, ultra high level.”
So there we go.
