Don't know if this was posted yet?

It looks like this week's unveiling of the PlayStation 4 caught one company by surprise and are deciding to unveil their new console earlier than expected. According to a handful of developers and industry professionals, including a Sony official, it's said that the Redmond-based company was caught "off-guard" by the PS4 announcement and is currently scrambling to get the Xbox 720 revealed earlier than expected.

We expected Microsoft to unveil the Xbox 720 during E3 in June, but now it's said that the company will announce its next-generation gaming console at its own media event sometime in early April, where they'll have the chance to take as much time as they want to show off the new console without any attention being taken away by other E3 events.

In fact, Ustechs, which is a partner of Microsoft's and has worked with the company on previous media events such as their press conference at E3 last year, has registered the domain name XboxEvent.com, which could be used to promote Microsoft's rumored April event, and act as a central hub for the event.

Of course, this is all speculation, but Sony believes that they have ruffled some feathers over in Redmond, Washington. While the console wars have always been around, it looks like 2013 will be host to one of the biggest console wars we may ever see. The PlayStation 4 will be available to the public in time for the holiday season this year, and we can expect the same from Microsoft.

I own both a 360 & PS3... I almost never play the 360 (my 2nd one since my first died RROD) really I keep it around so my 5 year old can play Star Wars Kinnect from time to time.

I'm sure I'll stay loyal to Sony, but I do want to hear what M$ has up their sleeve. (I'm guessing a lot of the same, with a greater focus on casual/kinnect style gaming.)

I think you are right about that. That "we're flexible" thing was just a hint to M$. You guys go first. Then we will price ours at exactly the same price.

Its not so much the specs, its the PR Microsoft is worried about.

They are put in a very tough spot to disrupt the hype, and only way they can do that is by outdoing Sony....somehow.

If you thought last gen was competitive...this is going to get nuts....and i love it :P

I dont really care that much about specs. I dont know how M$ will top Sony in the games dept. Im trying to figure out what games Ill buy when PS4 comes. I kinda want all of them and I really want about 5 of them.

Those specs have been leaked for a year now, they just confirmed it. They are fairly identical in power( ie what they are capable of graphically)according to rumored Xbox specs.

'I dont know how M$ will top Sony in the games dept.'

Unless MS has been creating games since 2009 for the Nxbx and why the x360 has no games...I dont see it either.

The only thing i see in favor of Sony is the 8GB DDR5 memory(167GB/s bandwidth), which is expensive.

However, its been rumored MS is going for architecture to get DDR5 thoroughput with cheaper DDR3.

"8GB of DDR3 and 32MB of ESRAM, with the two memory kinds working together to produce throughput of 170GB/s."

Its also been rumored the nextbox might be going with multiple GPU's. Well know soon enough.

CPu's and system memory are a wash. So who will be cheaper?
