New Xbox and Playstation consoles to be announced in June
Strap on your safety equipment! The next generation of consoles are coming! UK games industry boffins MCV are claiming to be ‘in the know’ and they’re saying that both the brand new Xbox AND PlayStation consoles will be shown off at the popular E3 gaming pow-wow in June.
MCV's online editor Ben Parfitt said: "Obviously we can't reveal our sources. But you have my personal word on this - the source is exemplary, 100% concrete, ultra high level.” Which is one step up from ‘the bloke in the pub’ and is therefore more than good enough for us.
Having subsequently spoken to the bloke in the pub, we are led to believe that it won’t be a complete reveal of the consoles, but rather an announcement with a few hints about features. The announcements will also serve as a distraction from Nintendo’s Wii U, which is expected to be shown off along with a release date and pricing info at E3.
Better start saving up for one, two or all three of the new consoles then… although the bloke in the pub says he can get us all of them next week for just £400.
