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.

Yeah, pretty much anybody who loves videogames say this coming. Microsoft is going to force Sony's hand in 2013, which is a bad thing for Sony. Either they launch in 2013 to keep pace, which will hurt the ps3 which finally hit it's stride over the last couple of years. Or they continue racking in money on the ps3 with a ps4 2014 launch and give MS a headstart. Either way, certainly a proverbial rock and a hard place for Sony. I don't see Sony being able to support the ps4, ps3 and Vita all at the same time. One of them is going to get dropped hard, IMHO. :)

Sounds about right and exciting news I'm ready to see both companies visions for next gen. This will be an exciting year some awesome games coming out early in the year. Than at the end of the year new consoles.

I prob wont buy either at launch but may ask for one for Christmas if like this past year I cant think of anything else I want.

I read that Famitsu asked companies what their goals in 2013 were and Sony said "Expand the PlayStation platform" (paraphrased). What else could they be referring to than PS4?

Guess that makes sense, talking about the hardware publicly for the devs there, unveiling games at E3.

I'm soooooo curious about the whole thing. Will they try to add activation to them? (Won't buy one that does.) How will the hardware be? Any lame gimmicks? (Seems like a sure thing for Microsoft.) What about backwards compatibility? (If PS4 supported PS1, 2 AND 3 games for it's ENTIRE life span I'd standardize on it in a heartbeat, baring any stupid things like activation or battery setups like the Wii U's)

Odds of seeing anything new on Last Guaridan at E3? :)

Sony's always been the best at supporting multiple systems IMO. Wouldn't shock me if they release something big on the PS3 even after the 4 hits as they did on the PS2, but at least they're keeping it well fed clear up to the PS4 launch! Can't wait to see new Vita stuff too.

Maybe, though given how slow the ps3 started off by supporting the ps2.... just a thought, Sony might play this one differently. I think there is a reason Ni No Kuni and Last of Us launch earlier in the year. I also think there is a reason Last Guardian has dissappeared. As a ps3 owner I hope I am wrong, but those clinging to their units thinking it will get great support for another 1-2 years, I think are going to be disappointed. :)

Come out last? The PS3 was launched a week before the Wii.

The PS3 launched two days before the Wii, actually.

According to Wiki, nov 11th vs Nov 19.

GarionOrb says:
It launched in Japan on November 11. In North America, it launched on November 17 while the Wii launched November 19.

Does it really matter? The article is clearly about Microsoft forcing Sony to launch sooner than they want too. It isn't a historical piece on the ps3's launch. Can you comment on the subject? When do you think the ps4 will launch? I vote 2013, making GoW Ascension and Last of Us the final ps3 software blitz. :)

Not interested either in 2013, maybe not even all of 2014 since multiplats are a non factor for me...but i do wonder what they have up their sleeve techwise and what they have in mind for BC.

It . Better. Be. Good.

I would say about the same as Yeti tracking you down and kicking you in the man-parts to force you to spit out your gum.

The Wii U came out last, missing the Xbox 360 by a mere 7 years lol

I just ignore when WolfPup does this and move on. He can be interesting to talk to when he's not creating his own definitions of things.
