New Xbox and PS4 will be at E3

Quote:
Report: BOTH New Xbox and PS4 Will Be Shown At E3

Information comes from "100% concrete, ultra high level" source.

UK, January 6, 2012





by Keza MacDonald
IGN UK

UK games industry outlet MCV has reported that both the next Xbox AND the PlayStation 4 will be shown at this year's E3 in June.

This isn't the first time that a publication has cited an unnamed source with information like this, but this isn't some unknown central European games blog - MCV's credibilty makes this particular report worth paying attention to.

Speaking on Twitter, MCV's online editor Ben Parfitt said "Obviously we can't reveal our sources. But you have my personal word on this - the source is exemplary, 100% concrete, ultra high level."

We shouldn't necessarily expect a full-blown reveal, though - we might just see the announcement. Editor-in-Chief Michael French told IGN: "This is very credible. Even if we don't see the hardware itself, or know a price or date, key publishers and developers are expecting some nod towards what direction PS4 will take at E3 this year. Sony isn't stupid - it knows that if Microsoft is planning to also say something about its next console, it can't be left behind."

Many were expecting Microsoft to come out on stage at E3 with some information about the new Xbox, but Sony's reveal would be more surprising, as a new console at this stage in the PlayStation 3's life cycle would fly in the face of the company's stated "ten-year plan".

If both Sony and Microsoft do indeed reveal their new consoles at the same time as Nintendo details the release schedule and pricing for the Wii U, this would quite probably be the biggest E3 in history.

Are you ready for a three-way showdown? Is it still too soon?

I am going to guess that the New Xbox will still be several years in the making, as Microsoft has exclusives that have been announced in 2013 all ready. Also the fact that I have no doubt that Halo 5 will be a launch title for the "720". We haven't seen a mainline Halo game released within a year of each other.

And I don't think Sony will want to rush their project, as we have seen where that has lead them. I have no doubt they will completely overhaul PSN to make it more security conscious and they will definitely be pushing PSN+.

I'm sure sonys goal is to release the PS4 before microsofts console and give it a decent price this time around.

Pretty much the reason the PS3 had a bad start was because everyone had a 360 already. It also cost $500 when it finally came out a year later, so everyone bought the cheaper wii that came out the same time + it was nintendo n cool.

Really wouldn't be surprised if they even just mentioned the new console. If the consoles are there and playable, well, good for Microsoft and Sony.

But really, with all the Kinect pushing Microsoft has done lately, are people really going to jump at purchasing a new Xbox, except for the die-hard fans? Seeing what Microsoft has done in the past 3-4 months just leads me to believe that they aren't ready to show off a new console quite yet, even if they can at any time.

Sony is probably more likely to release a new console before Microsoft, in my opinion. Keep it priced cheaper than the PS3 was at launch and I think they'll come out in a position better than Microsoft.

That price didn't seem to affect the sales of the PS2, now did it? And with seeing both the PSP and 3DS sales go nowhere at the initial price of $250, Sony hasn't learned based on the Wi-Fi only Vita is still going to be $250.

If you're trying to say that it wasn't the price that effected PS3 sales then using the PS2 as an example is bad. When the PS2 was released it was only $300, and it's only competitor was the Dreamcast. The GC and Xbox both came out later and the Xbox costed $300 as well. The original Xbox sold a lot less than the PS2 because it came out 2 years after and costed $300 when the PS2 probably had bundles for cheaper. That's pretty similar to what happened to the PS3, except now the PS3 has sold more than the 360 worldwide.

I don't know about Microsoft. I thought they were pretty committed to a "ten-year plan" for the 360? If they do show a new console, I have serious doubts that it will be any kind of playable; I expect a mention and a clip or two really.

Sony wouldn't be too surprising, it would make sense for them to want a headstart on Microsoft this time, and with a competing price. Still, I think they had pretty similar sentiments to Microsoft about a ten-year plan for the PS3, though they technically went for ten years with the PS2 and the PS3 was out and about for 3-4 of them, so maybe that's their idea of a ten-year plan?

I can't really be certain, but I can't help but have doubts, even if they promised that they evidently have the universe's most reliable source on this information. Oh well, guess we'll see.

The only thing im kinda bummed about sony spending less this time for developing a console (btw, sony said a while ago next console will have less of a budget) is that there might not be as nearly as new features. Like how the PS3 had bluray before bluray was even popular.

Exactly. Consoles have reached a point where there's not much more you can do with existing tech. True, you still have some innovation left, such as streaming games to and from devices as demonstrated in some capacity by the Wii U, but the reality is that tech right now is either debatable as being the next big step in technology, such as 3D, or that the tech that we think can be achieved by consoles cannot exist on consoles quite yet.

....I hope I made sense with what I'm talking about.
