The recent buzz around videogame internet circles has been the reported planned announcements of both the next Xbox from Microsoft, as well as the PlayStation 4 from Sony, at E3 in June this year.
At least one of these consoles will definitely not see a showing at the expo.
Following comments by Sony Computer Entertainment president and Group CEO Andrew House, top Sony executive Kaz Hirai emphatically denied reports of the PS4 announcement.
Speaking at a press event during CES 2012 this week, Hirai said:
“Andy (House) is absolutely right in that we are not making any announcements at E3. I’ve always said a 10-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that.”
Well, that puts a damper on things, doesn’t it?
We still have the ‘re-unveiling’ of Nintendo’s Wii U to look forward to at E3 this year, and rumours still persist regarding the chance of an announcement of the next Xbox from Microsoft.
Will we see this exciting turn of events?
