Recently it seems that we've been getting next-gen news and rumours on a daily basis. So far only Microsoft have given us major hints of an impending console announcement (see here). But now that's all changed. Sony Vice President Hiroshi Sakamoto has given a clear sign that we can expect an announcement from Sony this year. In an interview with El Mercurio On-Line he's reported to have said:
"It's still a big secret, but our Sony PlayStation friends are getting ready. I only can say that we're focused on the games related E3 event, booked for June. The announcement can take place there or even before, in May."
Not such a big secret anymore, eh? It looks like both Sony and Microsoft are set to announce their consoles just prior to E3, with full reveals at E3. It looks like we're set for the biggest and most exciting E3 to-date.
