Game Informer has reported that both Sony and Microsoft will unveil their next generation home consoles around GDC, which takes place from March 25 to March 29. They said that both will wait to show off their next generation titles until E3.
“We hear that both Sony and Microsoft are targeting special Apple-style press conferences to unveil their platforms near the Game Developers Conference in late March,” read the Game Informer report.
“E3 in June may be the industry’s biggest event, but both companies want to give their systems their own limelight,” the report continued. “That doesn’t mean E3 won’t be without its surprises. Next-gen games will be announced at the convention in preparation for the systems’ release at the end of the year.”
“We hear that Sony in particular is determined not to come out last this time like the PlayStation 3 did this generation, so we’ll have to see how soon it can get the PlayStation 4 out the door, and whether Microsoft is motivated to prevent this from happening,” the report added.
