    PCMag: Sony Planning Big PS4 Reveal Before E3

    Expect a big announcement from Sony about its next-gen PlayStation 4 console this month or possibly in early May, a source familiar with the company's marketing strategy told PCMag this week.
    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2417397,00.asp

    Could Sony be looking at getting the price, release date and/or the console reveal out of the way before E3 and focus on the games and/or features at E3(assuming the April/May event is real).

    Edit. I think It's about the console Itself.

    (I thought they meant game at first)

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    They probably have something like the price or the design and they probably want to keep people interested.

    It'd be great if they could save it for E3. That'd make for a good E3 conference.

    Big reveal to me means either Price and/or design.

    E3 might be solely for games and/or revisions of the design (see boomerang) depending on feedback etc.

    Huh...this is quite surprising. I wasn't expecting to hear anything until E3. I just don't know why they don't save it for E3 tbh. But whatever. Will be nice to hear some new info.

    Good! An event to counter MS's so everything is out of the way and E3 can be all about the games.

    Gears of War is quite fun. I wouldn't mind it at all on PS3... even though that's not going to happen.

    No idea what Sony is planning... hopefully what everyone else is suggesting... and focusing on games at E3. Who knows?

    Very interesting. Can't wait to see what comes of it. Most likely Price/video of what console looks like. Not physically revealed until E3.

    hehe it's just a thing of mine. Xbox always gets games that you would've seen on PC...probably because it has had a lot of PC developers like Cliffy/Bungie etc.

    That's because Xbox has PC-like architecture. Now that Sony has taken the x86 architecture route... we might be seeing more games like that on PS4.

    COD is one of those PC games. That's why I've always liked it. It's very unique compared to other console shooters. I know what people are thinking right now but really if we clear all the BS, it's a very unique shooter and the only shooter I've been completely satisfied with every time.

    I'm thinking price will be announced to get the pre order ball rolling.

    Propably because MS is doing their reveal in May. Smart move though because business is business. Keep the interest in PS4 alive. Both companies are fighting for mindshare going into next gen. I imagine we might even get a price announcement (hopefully).

    I wasn't expecting price details til after E3. They said they'd be talking about it a lot closer to release etc. TSG is too close so Gamescom maybe. Would love to be proved wrong on that though

    They are most likely gonna wait to see what MS prices next Xbox before they say anything.
