Source: Sony Planning Big PS4 Reveal Before E3

Expect a big announcement from Sony about its next-gen PlayStation 4 console this month or possibly in early May, a source familiar with the company's marketing strategy told PCMag this week.
Sony already revealed some PlayStation 4 specs at a February event in which the company unveiled the console's controller (pictured) and a stereo camera with motion capture capabilities, but not, to the chagrin of gamers everywhere, the PS4 itself. (PS4)

THERE IS MORE SONY?!?!?!

"Expect a big announcement from Sony about its next-gen PlayStation 4 console this month or possibly in early May, a source familiar with the company's marketing strategy told PCMag this week."

But early May is when the Xbox is supposed to be revealed, damn Sony are really starting to try and knock MS off. This would mean that MS are revealing the Xbox in May and Sony are trying to eliminate the thought of it by showing more.

"...,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 timeframe for a full-blown launch of the PS4."

So Sony are going to make another event, so they are showing what the PS4 will look like and more games and a more specific launch date, price, etc. but what about E3???

Hopefully if this rumor is true, it won't be a huge blowout, and E3 will just overflow with gameplay and demos of the new PSN ecosystem.
Dylila  +   597d ago
i cant wait for more info about the ps4. despite what others think about e3 being important for reveals, i dont really care much for an imaginary contest about winning e3 because no matter what im sure sony will have new info and games to show there. history proves that when it comes to exclusive titles and big game reveals that sony does it the most. im quite sure that sony will have the most interesting exclusive titles to be shown at e3 and the whole year.

if sony can confirm free version of psn where gamers can play online then they are my best choice for gaming next gen. with the amazing specs, features and games already announced for ps4 i cant wait to own it no matter the cost. im very excited about the ps4 and with the history of playstation and what they did on ps3 , i cant wait for the same amazing treatment on ps4.

If they show the actual console,they could completely hold the hype train until E3, and keep everyone anticipated. Not to mention the blow to Microsoft if they wanted to announce the new Xbox prior to E3.

Can't wait.
trenso1  +   597d ago
i hope so, so that way this second event is more about the console and more details about specs and what not(to get it out of the way i could care less) so that way E3 is all about games, its like a three course meal with sony, if we really get a second event

They don't actually have to show the console. They can just give some info and show some games, and still have people curious and have enough material left to reveal to keep from being upstaged at E3.

They're about to crash Microsoft's party.

- Microsoft has very little going on in terms of exclusive games

- Analysts suspect that Microsoft will focus more on being a set-top box rather than a gaming console

- The rumored specs for the Xbox 720 are rumored to be slightly less powerful than the PS4

- Windows 8 isn't very good

- Microsoft doesn't seem to have a unified vision for XBOX Live across Xbox, Windows Phones and Windows 8, and they've continually dropped the ball with PC gaming in general

- Steve Balmer is a complete embarrassment

- Usher doesn't sell games

Its game over for Microsoft in the gaming industry at least. Sure, they'll still continue to release a Halo game and a Forza game once in a while, but Microsoft has seen their best days come and go in the gaming industry. Heck, the WiiU deserves to better than the Xbox 720 since Nintendo actually puts some real effort into making a console for hardcore gamers.

MS HAVEN'T even spoken. All they've done is add the countdown clock way back on January 2. The clock will strike at E3. I guess they'll try and remove Sony's glass slipper from they neck at that time

I said on a recent post that I had a feeling Sony would release the PS4 much sooner than everyone expected. My feeling is coming true. It only makes sense, Sony has been trolling MS for a while now making them believe one thing and then doing all the opposite and getting them by surprise.
Ezz2013  +   597d ago
Every day without the announcement of the next Xbox is a PS4 event

it seems like sony don't want to give MS any chance to get any hype at all
sony is just way too smart with what they are doing
they keep drop info all the way to E3 just to keep the Good hype going

MS now must be in panic mode

izumo_lee  +   597d ago
In the past few E3's Sony has so much to show that can't fit within the time frame of an E3 press conference. They have shown new games prior to the show which makes you wonder how big Sony's E3 conference is gonna be.

This could potentially be the biggest Sony E3 press conference since 1995 when they first released the PSone.

a man agrees. A man doesn't think they would reveal Killzone and Infamous at their conference unless they had more to show. A man would remind everyone that ND has a team that's been working on something for 2 years and that MM is in the same situation. A man would also point out that SSM has another team working on a new IP as does Guerrilla. A man is ecstatic. Infamous gameplay (without fancy camera angles) will also get a spot in the conference most likely. Don't forget they may reveal a new PS3 game or 2 and announce a pricecut. Also Vita needs lots of attention, though not as much as PS4 will get. A man predicts a 2 hour conference even if this event is true as he expects PS3 and Vita to both get price cuts after new games are shown for each.

Let's just suppose that E3 was never meant to be the unveiling place for the PS4! For all we know it could be just set aside for Big things concerning the Vita, their streaming service and yes lots and lots of games.

Anyway, no matter how it was planned by Sony or, how we look at it, one things for sure! Sony will try to keep Microsoft unbalanced for as long as possible!

Microsoft definitely has to come out swinging with their unveiling or hope for a TKO.
thedon8982z  +   597d ago
GOOD,I hope they knock MS on there ass, make them forget about that kinect sh@t,we already have pretty good multimedia features(netflix,hulu,web browser). Just integrate android devices,crossplatform chat (vita/mobile),keep that record and upload feature and thats it.Those are good things to compliment the CORE experice which is to push next gen games to a new hieght.All this talk about MS being a multimedia console sounds like a complete falure and as proven when SONY first lauched PS3 it will fail because history has shown that the CORE experience( which is games) suffer.All you have to do is look at the last 3years of that kinect bullsh&t on xbox360 to see.Thats why I will always ride with SONY because atleast they have the decentcy to see there errors and make a turn around.

over the last few years sony has used the month or so before E3 to announce a lot of games than show them at E3, some don't like that since there are not many big reveals at E3 as world exclusive surprises

but i think its smart to announce stuff beforehand for 2 reason:

1. you get the whole media attention instead of split during big events

2.amount of studios sony own and the 2nd party contracts would make it impossible to show everything within 2 or so hours at E3's conference

so i am sure spike TV GTTV will have few world exclusives, i think its smart maybe to show all the titles for ps3 and Vita and hold on to all the announcements of PS4 till E3

also much credit to KAZ, he has come in with a plan and i am glad they have hired a very smart advertisement firm for Ps4

this firm did advertisement for 1st gears game along with Google

Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag

"So Sony are going to make another event, so they are showing what the PS4 will look like and more games and a more specific launch date, price, etc. but what about E3???"

... or MS is planning to steal the show with E3 until release, by showering you with information ads while Sony would have released most of it's information and there is very little left to announce?

Basically, both companies have limited information to release so use it wisely. Sony has the first movers advantage, but MS has the late comers advantage.

Well Microsoft hasn't announced anything, but they are actually dominating the headlines with mere rumors. Not saying the PS4 isn't getting hype, but considering Microsoft has said absolutely nothing, they are getting attention and headlines when realistically Sony should be getting all the hype because they are the only ones to announce a new console at this point.

The height at which Xbox3 rumors "dominate" is always online required, no used games and Kinect will spy on you.

Regardless if you believe that any publicly is good publicly - that's not.

Edit:
I mean, once MS does start to officially put their cards on the table, the second thing they're going to have to do is refute negative rumors which could very well persist past launch.

There is no such thing as bad press, rumors still keep Microsoft in the headlines when Sony by all rights should be the ONLY headline because they have actually announced a console.

I wasn't trying to defend anything, just stating a fact. People act as if by showing off the PS4 alone it'll kill every other console coming to market.

I guess Microsoft shouldn't even bother releasing a console, according to N4G Sony is about to sell 500 million consoles, Microsoft will be lucky to sell a single one.../s

Can you please provide some links backing this up? This is not the first time that I've read on N4G how Microsoft/Durango is dominating the headlines, but between this site, Polygon, Eurogamer, Kotaku and IGN, I've seen scant few headlines about the Durango since PS4's reveal. In fact, other than the GameStop quote from today, I haven't read any mention about Microsoft's next system unless it was included as an assumption in an article about the PS4, or if it was a rumor about no-used games or always-online required.

If you like Xbox, fine, nobody cares, everyone has a platform they prefer, and that's how it goes. But please, don't go around from post to post just being delusional for the sake of your unconscious instability. Of course Microsoft's silence is getting headlines. That's how it works. It's the same with any anticipated product. Don't be so selective. People are just wondering what the hell they are up to. But their silence is not *dominating* anything at all. Are you really going to sit here and act like you haven't seen headline after headline of PS4 praise? If the roles were reversed and Sony was "late" to the party, would you be saying the same thing?

Most of the MS headlines are how they aren't doing anything, the rest are rumors which aren't very positive, and then most are going on to say that the PS4 will dominate it regardless, which is speculation at this point. All of them are pretty much useless, but I guess it does get us talking about it.

Mind you we aren't talking about anything substantial, since we still know nothing about it. Mind you, the more we talk without knowing about it, the more expectations rise, and then we run into the possibility that many will be disappointed due to their own expectations of the system. It's not unlike any over-hyped game this gen.

It's rather fun watching the next-gen unfold, both companies are fighting to gain the audience.

The Great Melon  +   597d ago
Great looking exclusives along with lots of third-party support are what steal thunder. Remember the FFXIII multi-platform announcement? Or the Portal 2 announcement? Or how Mass Effect was sore point for half the console gamers for some time.. Those are the kind of things that really rile up the gamers. The hardware reveal is simply to keep Microsoft from singly gaining traction.

Sony wants to prevent the Xbox from being the only thing talked about. Revealing their console around the Microsoft event ensures that any news about the next Xbox will also be news about the PS4.

If they can do this reveal, then that means their confident about E3. Confidence in the past few years for Sony has been about showcasing games - and that is the most important thing.

it makes a lot of sense. are you going to condense the overflow of information of what the PS4 is going to do, along with announcing and describing the games that the system is going to get at E3, which is a 1 and 1/2 hours of conference time?

Dont think so. Theres too much to talk about when it comes to launching this thing.

Talk about the system/the specs and reveal more of its features now, then talk about games and services at E3. plus, it could even give them some time to talk about the Vita and its interpolarity with the PS4.

The Great Melon  +   597d ago
Definitely. Even if they were able to condense all the information into the E3 conference, that would most likely dilute the impact. Ironically, dispersing the information over a several events helps build the hype as it makes the system sound like it is constantly improving when in reality they probably had all this set up back in February.

This approach of spreading the announcements helps Sony highlight many developers who are helping the PS4 happen. We saw a few big names at the the PS4 announcements and many indies at GDC. E3 will probably highlight more third-parties along with some of Sony's heavy hitters. Finally, we have TGS in October showing us what Japan has been cooking. This should make everyone happy.

¿ Exist some disease that can be produced by the Hype?... because Sony is producing me a lot of Hype every day, with amazing opinions of developers, programmers and specialist like David Cage and Mark Rein . I feel that I can't wait until christmas....

Seems most likely. Being absent for months until E3 would mean the Feb announcement wasn't needed.

PlayStation will carry Sony, KAZ knows what's up. Sony should have done this a long time ago.

If anyone can do Sony well - it would be Kaz. I really hope we see Sony blossom under his leadership over the upcoming years.

Keep the hype train going!

Just don't blow your load pre E3. Save some goodies for the big show.

"... to the chagrin of gamers everywhere..." speak for yourself. I'm not one of these clowns that NEEDED to see a box.

Not a smart Idea
be patient and wait for E3.

I think Sony has sooo much to share with us, there isnt enough time to cram it into a 2 hour E3 presentation.

They've already done a 2 hour presentation!
BitbyDeath  +   597d ago
Makes sense, Sony still have a lot to share. (OS/Box/other features/price/exact date/worldwide launch etc)

They couldn't possibly get all this out in their short E3 timeslot as well as PS3 and Vita info.

All aboard the hype train.
sherimae2413  +   597d ago
can i ask? e3 is held in 3 days right?, so its means each day is for each respective company, for sony, microsoft and nintendo so they have all the time of day for each.

or am i wrong? ^_^ sorry never been in e3 or any gaming convention, only cosplays lol

Yea E3 goes for 3 days. June 11-13.
Generally MS goes first, followed by Sony and then Nintendo. With others like EA and Ubisoft in between.

Each get around 1:30 hours to present info live.
Of course more info is brought out before and after the conferences it is just not all broadcasted. (Followup interviews and such) :-)

Cuders  +   597d ago
Looks like sony isn't done yet. I mean this time around they are not joking they are bringing us what we want and i love it.
stefan771  +   597d ago
Makes sense. Leaves E3 to show more games for PS4, PS3 and vita
