Rumor: Playstation 4 to Launch Before Next Xbox?

According to sources close to VG247, the Playstation 4 will be released before the next Xbox, launching during the christmas 2013 period.

The source stated that Sony “is confident” of getting to the market before Microsoft, this would be smart on Sony’s part, as the Xbox 360 beat the PS3 to the market by a long way, getting a jump in the sales market before the PS3 could even get out the gate.

Other exciting elements that were hinted at by the source were Vita and PS4 connectivity, which was hinted at last week, as well as “Top Line Publishers” close to Sony already having the specs for the new console.

So what do you think? Will Sony get the next iteration of the Playstation to the market before the Xbox, getting that jump they need on sales? Or does this rumor sound like lies to you? Let us know in the comments below, or discuss it in the forum.

No New Xbox at E3

In a surprise move, Microsoft have come out in a statement saying that there will be no new Xbox shown at E3 this year. Rumors have been cropping up everywhere that Microsoft were readying their new console for release and a showing at this years E3. Now this could just be a ploy to take attention from Microsoft so they can have a big reveal at the show, or they could just really not have a new Xbox in the works. One that is ready to show off anyway. Guess we will have to wait till E3 for confirmation on this one.
