If it's as late as E3 2013, no way would they come out for the holiday season.

Any other events before E3 that are important that they could do it at?

e3 2013 the LATEST. Hopefully we get reveals/teasers at the shows earlier in the year like CES... or even a conference like what sony did with the vita at the start of the year (2011 was it?)

E3 probably, big announcement and showing off some of the games in production for the systems.
#4 Posted by ninjapirate2000 (3014 posts) -
GDC, E3, Or maybe they set up their own conference like Apple does.

MS will show something at E3. Only question is, will they show something before E3?

Sony will probably show something at E3.

E3 but there will be "leaks" to start the hype before then.

The Vita was announced 13 months before its release in North America. No way would they announced a new console five months before launch, unless you guys are saying the new consoles might come later.

E3 2013
Sony: PS Omni, Uncharted 4, Killzone 4, and Wipeout all launch to window games

MS: Next Xbox, Kinect 2.0, Fable 4, Project Gotham Racing 5, and Ryse all launch to window games.

Nintendo (Yeahhhh buddy):
Next 3D Mario, Smash Bros 4, Retro's new game, Monolith's new Ip, and Yoshi's Island.

Of course they would. Ps3 and 360 still sell reasonably well, announcing so early could lose them sales.

So why'd Sony announce PS3 at E3 2005 then?

Because they thought it was gonna release earlier than fall of 06. It was delayed.

Seriously? When was it originally going to be released?

And Microsoft unveiled the 360 at E3 2005, just 5-6 months before launch..

I think spring 06 for NA and possibly earlier for Japan.

360 pulled that off, so yeah, there is a way. We didn't see the 360 until right at E3 month, and then bam it was released that same year.

It's also probable that each console manufacturer could craft a show made just for the the debut event or CES.

#16 Posted by Samus3D (1675 posts) -

Main highlights:

Ryse demo w/ Kinect 2.0
Fable IV

KillZone 4 demo w/ Omni viewer
Uncharted 4

Next 3D Mario
Smash Bros 4

They're probably gonna tease one of the consoles at E3.

E3 2013

F*ck all this omni and kinect talk, all games better work with a standard controller.

To take away some of Microsofts thunder.

Xbox 360. Announced in May of 2005. Official 1st showing /info released/date/price/etc at E3 2005. Released in the Holiday of 2005. A bit more than 5 months yeah, but still. Sold like hotcakes.

It's more or less the same method Apple uses, shock and awe. Create some buzz, unveil the new product out of the blue, start selling said product in a short period of time after the unveil, create tons of hype very quickly, profit like mad.

Of course not all companies can pull it off like Apple does, but you get my point.

I dont see problems announcing a new console at E2 2013 and launch the system same year round November 2013...

I'd assume that if a system gets announced is cause its ready and surely those 5 months prior release will be filled with info on the system specs, online service, features & most importantly games... 5 months of accumulated Hype is more than enough ;)

Next x @ E3 2013 and launch Nov. 2013 :D

PS4 is a bit more up in the air atm, shown at E3 but launching hmmm, probably a bit later, perhaps early to mid 2014. :o :P

#32 Posted by guard12 (1657 posts) -

GDC or E3 2013 are the only logical times they would announce a new system for a potential Holiday 2013 release

I (badly) predict Microsoft will announce their console at CES, and if they don't, E3 2013. Sony might announce theirs as well at E3, but who knows.

That was a few years ago. How long have you been sleeping under a giant enemy crab, kid?

I think both announce at E3. MS will probably give some teasers out before hand but the first main showing will be E3
