"When will next-gen consoles be announced?"

when sony and microsoft are ready to announce them

Well both Sony and MS know they can keep console gamers on 6 year old tech as long as either of them dont release another console. Its not like console gamers will care about how old their tech gets as long as they can keep quibbling over which dinosaur is better lol.

Specially with Nintendo releasing an underpowered console, the other 2 arent in any sort of pressure to release new console and since most console gamers are fine with the dated tech there doesnt seem to be any urgency in releasing a new console.

I would think they are going to try and extend this as long as possible, starting another generation just means raking up losses, none of them are in the mood for that. So why not keep milking with old tech, its not like console gamers have another option lol.

Do you ever get tired of trolling with your PC Elitist BS?

It's every article with you isn't is.
Guess what, none of us want to switch to PC gaming and none of us want to be like this:

Not soon enough. I wanted the option of new consoles last year. I do however wonder how much consoles will be like PCs in the upcoming gen. Can't say yet if it's good or bad. Because sometimes less is more. Even this website has examples of less being more attractive than more.

All I want from Sony/Microsoft is for them to leak a small reveal of there next consoles. Just do it already!

I think it's a game of chicken. Both are going to hold out as long as possible, but both have the option of dropping the info at any given time.

It's a delicate situation. Neither of them want to show their cards, but at the same time neither of them want the other to get a head start. Either way 2013-14 is a given, it's just a matter of when. I'm personally psyched about the reveals for both consoles, when we actually get to see the exact specs and features, and what the launch titles will look like. It's a great time to be a gamer for sure.

I think we will see a teaser before E3 but that's it!

Microsoft has already announced that they no longer plan to do any announcement inside of trade shows. See the Surface reveal.

If there was going to be a console this year, they will stage an announcement with about a months notice, then E3 will be where the public gets to try out the new console. It will be launched on September 25th.

But I no longer think we will see the neXtBox announce this year. Instead we will see the Illumiroom projector, which will add a year or two to the 360's extended life.

Again, I have been saying for years... new xbox in 2015, possibly 2016 if they can manage it.

I also think we will see an SSD xbox this year.

Probably also a native xbox glass controller.
