Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3), one the world’s leading trade event for gaming consoles, video games, handheld devices and others, will be held from June 11 to 13 in Los Angeles Convention Centre.
Earlier, The News Tribe had reported that Sony could use E3 as the launching event for its PS4. But now PC Mag has reported that Sony is planning an event in April or May to demonstrate its gaming console, which was not shown on Feb 20.
The move, according to PC Mag, is aimed at grabbing media attention as well at capturing mind share of users against Microsoft’s Xbox 720, also being released this year.
But there are no official hint so far about Xbox 360 successor except a tip on one of Microsoft’s blog that posted a countdown to 2013 E3.
The move of an early unveiling of the gaming console from Sony could be an improved strategy to clearly state the details about PS4. Holding a mega event before E3 will enable Sony to focus on games during the expo.
Sony’s next generation gaming console is likely to hit stores in October with a reported price of 300 Great Britain Pound.
