The PlayStation 4 at E3… 2015
Recently games sites have been debating whether or not the PlayStation 4 would be revealed at this year’s E3, but now Sony has officially put the rumours to rest.
It all started when, video game site, MCV wrote an article about a new Xbox and PlayStation being shown at E3 2012. This information spread around the web and it wasn’t long before people start coming up with arguments against it, the strongest of which was from Michael Pachter, an industry analyst, who said that since ‘neither console is launching in 2013… there’s no reason to tease them in 2012’.
Kaz Hirai from Sony has now stated, in an interview, that they will not be showing the PS4 at E3 as they are sticking to their initial 10 year plan, which means that the new console won’t hit shelves until 2016. We can look forward to seeing it at E3 2015, at least. Personally I think this is a good thing, as there is still a lot of potential for the PS3 and, with so many people getting invested in the online features of games, it’s going to take a lot to get people to move over to another console. Sony’s announced doesn’t necessarily prove that MCV are wrong about the Xbox 720, but they did get the information from the same source so I’m fairly confident that too is false.
