Sony Plans Big PS4 Reveal Before E3 2013

Sony has plans on revealing the PS4 soon. You can expect the next-gen PlayStation 4 console reveal this month or possibly in early May, a source familiar with the company’s marketing strategy told PCMag this week.

At the PlayStation Meeting in February, the 3D PS Move, PS4 specs, and the DualShock 4 controller was revealed. The only thing missing was the PS4 itself.

According to the source, Sony may be parceling out information about its coming game console to build up buzz. Some industry watchers anticipated another reveal or at least some PS4 news at last week’s Game Developer Conference, but the company only tipped some details about the underlying hardware, Ars Technica┬áreported.

GDC was the last big stage for the company to talk about the PS4┬ábefore the E3 gaming conference in June, unless Sony manufactures its own event. That’s precisely what Sony plans to do, according to the source, who said late April/early May will be the likeliest time frame for a full-blown launch of the PS4.
