A Sony press conference scheduled for February 25th could be the launch platform for PS4, one online report has claimed.
Expert Reviews claims to have word that Sony will use the Destination PlayStation event to formally unveil its next-generation PlayStation 4 console for the first time, showing off pre-release hardware ahead of an expected 2014 launch”.
It further claims that the early reveal is intended to dampen enthusiasm for the Xbox 720, which it believes Microsoft WILL launch by the end of 2013.
You can expect plenty more stories along these lines as 2013 progresses. MCV would guess that February is a tad early for a next-gen reveal, although we do expect one of either Microsoft or Sony to make a move ahead of E3.
Microsoft last week revealed a countdown to E3 in June, suggesting that it has pegged the LA showcase for its Next Xbox reveal.
