Sony Says PS4 Will Not Be Attending E3

Sony Says PS4 Will Not Be Attending E3

Not long ago a collective gasp could be heard through the gaming community as news leaked that Sony was planning to reveal the PS4 at this year’s E3. Rather than let rumor and speculation ferment, Sony stepped up and crushed everyone’s dreams.

Last week, Dan Curtis stumbled upon a report by MVC that a source leaked information about Sony’s plans to unveil the Ps4 at the 2012 E3 convention in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, Sony stopped the hype train before it could even finish boarding and vehemently denied any allegations that the  PS4 would be revealed and/or even hinted at this year. Unfortunately, for MVC it seems like their credible source was nothing more than a reliable source of hot air.

Sony Computer Entertainment’s Andrew House was the first to step forward and address the issue head on telling CVG,

“I don’t think we’re contemplating talking about anything to do with future console iterations at this point.”

Many people may get hung up on the “I don’t think” part of his statement, claiming that it can be left open to interpretation and that he is possibly just one of the people who isn’t ‘in the know.’

Thankfully, Kaz Hirai recently told the Wall Street Journal something a bit more definitive,

“Andy (House) is absolutely right in that we are not making any announcements at E3,” Hirai said. “I’ve always said a 10-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that.”

So it looks as though Sony isn’t too terribly worried about jumping the gun on the next generation of consoles, especailly with Nintendo already having revealed a system and Microsoft hinting all day long about the next Xbox. One thing Sony is good at is miking a system for all its worth before rolling out a replacement.
