pretty obvious after m$ said no new system this year. next xbox and ps4 will launch within a few months(or even weeks) of each other

I do expect something of an announcement at E3 though, even a tech demo. Microsoft are doing quite well and with Halo 4 releasing this year the last thing they want is a new console stealing halos thunder. As for the PS4 I do see Sony previewing it at this years E3

How plain can MS be? They's categorically denied anything will be announced about the next XBOX at E3.

No tech demo, no hints, no hardware, no games- nothing.

This seems like a plausible case because Halo 4 is releasing this year so there's no way Microsoft is going to announce a new console and dampen the hype which will surround Halo 4 during its release.

If not E3 2012 then most definately 2013. Especially a release.

I'm surprised by it. I thought MS would at least not let Nintendo parade around the show. When N show GTA V people will be opening champagne bottles at their hotels all night.

They are probably waiting to see what Nintendo is up to, before MS releases their next console. One year head start is an advantage, but it is far from detrimental.

In many ways, releasing later gives you plenty of advantages IF you take advantage of them.
