Xbox And PS3 Successors to be Revealed at E3


While Nintendo is comfortably planning on giving out more details on the WiiU this year, as well as the planned launch of the system itself, Sony and Microsoft seem to be suddenly feeling a bit of heat. Both companies apparently have plans to reveal their respective console successors at this years E3 as well.

This marks the first time in the history of the event that this many consoles will be present on the show floor. What’s even more interesting than that, though, is the possible motivations behind the reveals. While Microsoft’s was likely an expected turn of events, given the fact that the Xbox 360 has been on the market since 2005, Sony’s reveal may be hinting at a desperate chance to get back into the game. Originally, the PS3 was supposed to be planned to last for about a decade (the console itself launched back in 2006). Apparently the promise was too difficult to keep, considering everything the console, and the company as a whole, has been through all that time.

With all of the big three looking to get their consoles as much attention as possible, one can only imagine the kind of insanity that can occur at this years E3. Just so long as we don’t have to deal with crap like this anymore.
