Do you guys think the PS4 will be announced before E3?

I hope they announce that it isn't being released for 3+ years.

Not really, No.
Rumors persist that the PS4 won't even launch til 2014...so there really is nothing to be gained by announcing it so soon.

The X-Box 3 is rumored to be coming out later this year, and there is plenty of evidence that it will be announced at this years E3.

The only reason I could see Sony wanting to announce the PS4 at all would be to try to steal some thunder away from Microsoft's announcement of the X-Box 3 (720, whatever)...but that cuts both ways, because then what would be the point in people buying a PS3 if they think the PS4 is just around the corner.

My bet is that it won't be announced till the end of the year.
When MS gets ready to launch the next X-Box console...that will be when Sony officially announces the PS4.

In other words, Sony is going to wait til the very last moment, where it makes more sense to announce it then it does not to.

^ But that's just the way I see things.

It will be announced for release Spring 2014, at about $450-$500 dollars.

Unless they have more exclusives they want to debut at E3, I'd think they would rather want to announce it at E3.

that would actually be interesting, but unlikely. that would be a 0.5 generation step, but at the same time the nextbox would be already so dominant and widespread, it probably wouldn't gain a foothold in the market.

The Xbox 3 is rumored to be priced at $299. If MS can do that, Sony can do that for the PS4. The only thing the PS4 is going to really differ on is the video card. Which they're both pretty much top-end. So the price difference is just Sony losing money and wanting to recoup their losses from the horribly planned PS3 launching and early life.

Rumor is it will be announced at this new PS event they are holding soon. Nobody knows what its about. My bet is that they will show the PS4 at this event or we will get an announcement at E3 with details at TGS.

Highly unlikely that it'll cost less that $399.
