Pachter: PS4 & Xbox 720 At E3 Will Reveal Price, Release Date & More

NowGamer: "E3 2013 is less than a month away, and there's no denying that it's shaping up to be the most exciting one yet.

Sony and Microsoft will be there demoing the PS4 and Xbox 720 (or whatever it's called) there, while a bevy of next-gen game announcements are expected to be made.

It's a big deal.

Michael Pachter claims that it'll be the most important time for both Sony and Microsoft too, adding that it doesn't matter when these reveal events are - E3 is the big deal." (PS4, Xbox One)

Let's not forget that Panopticon thing that Sony is going to reveal on the 16th May. No idea what it is but I'm excited for some reason.

WOW! I did not know about that, thanks for letting me know :D Bubble for you, sir.

From the article'
"The truth is, buzz is one thing, purchase intent is another," said Pachter "I don't think anyone is buying any of these boxes until they see them and they see the price."

Not according to many here on N4G. They likely already picked a winner for E3 as well.

Sad thing is, the opposite will now happen. It's what I call "the Patcher effect".

I did not know about this reveal as well, thanks for sharing man!

The Panopticon is a type of institutional building designed by English philosopher and social theorist Jeremy Bentham in the late 18th century. The concept of the design is to allow a watchman to observe (-opticon) all (pan-) inmates of an institution without them being able to tell whether or not they are being watched.

Wonder what kind of game this would be! Maybe it could be a peripheral possibly linked to the controller or the new PS4 Eye?

Who knows but I am intrigued to say the least.

MikeMyers- "They likely already picked a winner for E3 as well."

Well that's unfortunate to be so one dimensional, get both for the best of both worlds.

Who the hell is They?
famoussasjohn  +   879d ago
JoGam - IDK, I'm still waiting for both consoles to be shown and what they have to offer and for Sony to go in more depth with their offering. I'm leaning towards the Xbox only due to having more friends on there than on PSN, but I play most of the exclusives they offer on the PS3 so I don't miss out on some good games.

"Well that's unfortunate to be so one dimensional, get both for the best of both worlds."

Now direct that comment towards the people who have this popular opinion on this site (there's allot people btw). Yay, PlayStation, boo Xbox.

@Jo and "They" are the many, many Sony loyalist on here.

edit: @Max whoa, how am I being the fanboy? Why is that every where I look on here its day 1 PlayStation and bashing the MS unannounced console UNANNOUNCED console which is low.

And making crazy assumptions about it these past 3 months?

@Shin I understand that but this site only a handful of people actually care about MS or show some sort of interest. I'm no loyalist to no one company like people are here. But just like everyone else I do have my preference.

Sorry for bringing sensible logic to these post and flexibility in which most people are nearly handicapped of doing because of their extreme obsession over a single company. I just call it like I see it, and people on really, really hate that, oh well.

Dude, not everyone cares about Gears, Halo and having to pay to play online, in which case it wouldn't make much sense to be a Microsoft "loyalist" either.
Some people don't have a reason to buy an Xbox over a PS4. Even if the Nextbox may be superior in some ways or not.
It's that simple.

Nothing wrong with people having their own personal winners.
One system may be technically better than the other but it may not offer anything that may appeal to some.
A lot of people may have been playing with a certain series of platforms for years and it just makes sense for them.

You're being very one-dimensional and a fanboy.

I'm excited to see what the big 3 have to show. We all know why about MS and Sony, and if Nintendo doesn't come up with some compelling software to show, that's releasing this year, Wii U is done. The Vita is actually outselling it.

@angel...you are 100% correct. There are a good amount of people on here that will blindly follow Sony everywhere, and crap on anything MS does. It does go both ways, but on here..currently, it's not even close with the bias towards PS3. And I see you already have your first customer calling you a fanboy.

To be honest, it is not being one dimensional when one box you are certain that their first party studios will be launching existing and new ip's for the years to come plus it being supported by third party devs. While the other seems more like a third party machine and to me there is literally no point in purchasing that. The only reason for me having an xbox is for gears and that game hasn't had the same level of impact that the first one had on me. So a machine that offers a variety of quality exclusives plus third party support is far better than one that has very few exclusives and third party support. It is as simple as that. You get more from one than the other.
showtimefolks  +   878d ago
Oh patcher you get paid to tell us what we know already

Off course they gonna show the systems, announce price and release date

But you are the kind of obvious

I actually hate Pachter.

"On December 25th it'll be christmas!"

these are the predictions he makes or they are so far fetched that he's just pulling shit out of his ass.

BOLD statements indeed! I don't think anyone was expecting that.

Pachter has the perfect job... gets paid for saying things absolutely obvious and things with no arguments. I'm done with this "analyst"
ZodTheRipper  +   879d ago
The thing is that he's doing it professionally so the business-guys in the games industry listen to him to some degree. But fact is, most of the people that are on N4G daily could do his job easily.
Linsolv  +   878d ago
Well what do you expect? When Pachter says anything worth saying he's wrong!
famoussasjohn  +   879d ago
Well, look at who the analyst was. He's just stating the obvious to finally be right about something on next generation consoles.
kayoss  +   879d ago
I swear to god Patcher is like the Dr Phil of video games. Always stating the obvious. Annoying as...an elementary school teacher using her finger nails scratching on the chalk board to get her student's attention.
DEEBO  +   879d ago
patch is a lucky dude.just about any person on n4g can do his job but he is suppose to be like some kind of expert.lol ok.if you're in college or going to college.my advice to you are to major in patch's career.you can get paid to say things(the real gamers already know) or just make-up shit and hope it comes true.
RuleofOne343  +   879d ago
You do realize that his job is more than talking about these Fk console, know this one degree will not get you that job he has try maybe a total of 3 degrees then maybe you can get a job like that. Also you may want to inquire about what a person job is before you start running your mouth thinking you know what it is or what it requires.

Dlacy13g  +   879d ago
So I was thinking about the price and date business.... and what would be announced or not announced. E3 is the big show... but lets not forget Gamescom has grown increasingly important. In the past Sony has been really the only one to hold a conference at Gamescom, could they only announce price at E3 and hold release date until Gamescom?

If I recall correctly Sony held off the announcement of the PS3 Slim until Gamescom. Just wondering if that shows growth is big enough to play into strategies for this launch for either company.

O rly?

That is ALL you have to say. C'mon guys and author, do you really need an 'analyst' with 'so many degrees' (you should know that the guy is 'smart' and he's not afraid of telling others, because he need to make stuff simple for is stupid people) to know that?!

Pointless story and, if you are interested in what he says, simply go to GT and watch Pach-Attack!

Pachter is usually right about predictions such as these. As long as he doesn't speculate on marketing strategy and game reveals it's good.
SephirothX21  +   879d ago
How is this news? Obviously it is very likely that Sony and MS will give the release date and price of their next gen consoles at E3. The console are releasing only 5 months after E3 and there is no bigger gaming event in that period. Patcher just says the obvious.
Pillsbury1  +   879d ago
Wish I could get paid to state the obvious!
taquito  +   879d ago
here's hoping the next xbox has way more power than the ps4

we need something on the console side that can at least compete with a 2 year old gaming pc

and the ps4's 1.6 ghz cpu and laptop gpu are NOT going to cut it
Tontus  +   879d ago
You can try to make up specs and talk about them as if they're facts all you want, at the end of the day if Sony developers can makes games look as amazing as God of War: Ascension, The Last of Us, Beyond Two Souls or Killzone 3 on the PS3 and the PS4 is what, 10 times more powerful, the games next generation will be near enough film quality.

The PS4 specs ARE going to cut it, hell, the Killzone: Shadow Fall demo was poorly optimised running on just 3/7GB ram (1GB reserved for OS) and it already looks as good or better than the best looking PC games today. When they release their 2nd game and when Sony Santa Monica, Quanitc Dreams, Naughty Dog get their games out you will be eating your words, the games are going to be beautiful and no matter how much you trash what you think its specs are it's not going to make beautiful games look ugly.

Stop hating and start appreciating, you're a gamer, correct? Why the bitterness then? You should be excited for powerful new consoles with fresh new gaming experiences... not finding problems that aren't there and being pessimistic and bitter.
