This is about to be one hell of a year in the gaming world. Both the xBox 360 AND PlayStation 3 successor will be shown in E3 2012 (rumor of course ). This year E3 will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 5th to 7th [source].
The interwebs are blowing up with places claiming that the next gen systems are no-doubt going to be debuted in this upcoming event in June.
It will mark the very first time in the show’s 17-year history that three fresh, rival console formats will be so directly comparable.
There seem to be many claims about Microsoft and Sony saying that they would release these two consoles around E3 time this year. “Microsoft unleashing their new console at the end of 2012, and Sony has said numerous times that they don’t wish to be last to market in the next generation.” But what if this is all nonsense. Perhaps too good to be true? Mhmm could be.
There are already blogs out there try to calculate the potential price of these systems. I would say it’s a bit early, and both Sony and Microsoft have obviously not commented on the price yet.
Besides a forbes.com tech contributor writes that according to videogame analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush Morgan Securities, this is simply not going to happen.
“I think there’s zero chance of a tease from Sony for PlayStation 4 and only a 20 percent chance from Microsoft that they’ll tease the next Xbox,” said Pachter. “Neither console is launching in 2013, so there’s no reason to tease them in 2012.”

I hope that this E3 something brilliant is released, though the odds seem very slim.
