Next Xbox and Playstation Four to be Revealed at E3 This Year?
Could the future of gaming be upon us?
Rumors flooded the internet when reports came out claiming that the next Xbox and PlayStation 4 would be revealed at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) this June at Los Angeles. Nintendo was already expected to reveal more information about the Wii U such as launch games, price, and launch date. Nintendo had labeled this reveal as a “re-reveal” for the console. It is not surprising to see Microsoft and Sony preparing for a reveal of their next gen consoles. They do not want Nintendo to gain any momentum to give them a competitive advantage. After the huge success of the Wii, Microsoft and Sony will do everything in their power to overshadow Nintendo’s momentum.
As far as the next Xbox is concerned, there’s been numerous rumors circulating about what features the console will have. Patents show that it’s possible for the console to have a build in DVR function, and other reports make claims involving tablets and Windows 9 services. From what I have heard, all three companies will make a bigger push on services and features, rather than graphics processing power. There has also been talk about Microsoft considering to bring Blu-ray capabilities to their new console.
It’s been reported that Nintendo plans to show off the Wii U behind closed doors at CES, and the next Xbox may even make a brief appearance.
