Imagine the fuss if Microsoft casually waltzed out the next Xbox on the 19th...

Announcement is one thing, and release is another. More importantly though is the execution by management!

I'm really excited to see what Sony has in store, but has a feeling it will be nothing more than a short announcement and a few teasers until E3.

"casually"

Yep a ton of rumors are stating that the 720 will be designed for casual gaming with Kinect 2 integration and an extremely heavy operating system designed for delivering services.

But this is all from rumors so i really wouldnt believe any of it until Microsoft shows off the 720.

It's hard for me to say since I never expected this from Sony, but I doubt MS would do it casually. They also aren't likely to try and upstage this teaser for the time being. They'll let Sony have it's time in the spot light, because they, and we, all know that when MS is ready to announce they will get much the same hype.

Well the have to right? Cause Kaz said they would let M$ go first. lol

So its either that, or Kaz is a fraking liar!

Well when your investing tens of millions you don't do things based on knee jerk reactions. Both manufacturers will have concrete plans in place for when and how they'll show off their new hardware. It depends how the dates fall, they won't simply wait for the competition then react.

Depends what his definition of "go first" means, really.

If he talks interms of "info about final tech, pricing and launch date" then probably he'll wait before announcing it. But interms of "going first" to announce a new console.

Heck the smartest thing would be to announce it first, and as soon as Microsoft announces theirs, then Kai could make another announcement for the specs and pricing. It would go back and forth and the attention would be evenly spread between the two.

There would be no need for "i'll wait til they go then i'll announce" argument. That stuff is more for kids rather than CEOs.

*lol* do not even dream about Sony showing the console or its final specs, releas date, price, etc...

I think they will only show tech demos and that's it.

Maybe they would tease the next console but I think they were serious when talked about leting MS to move first.

I see what Sony are trying to do. They want to steal the thunder from Nintendo's release of F-Zero on the Virtual Console for 30p on the 20th of Feb!

i dont care about the war and benefits, i just want games! I want Uncharted 4 to be a PS4 launch title.
