E3 Expo 2012 will not feature Playstation 4 announcement, says Hirai
Following rumors that Sony may be gearing up to announce the successor to the Playstation 3 at this years E3 Expo, Kaz Hirai, head of Sony consumer products has stated that Sony will not be making any new hardware announcements at E3. Hirai’s comments came after a reporter speaking to Hirai at a press roundtable at CES, referenced the remarks of Andrew House, the head of Sony’s videogame division. House had previously stated last year that no announcement relating to future console iterations would be made at the show.
Hirai re-affirmed House’s remarks, stating:
“Andy (House) is absolutely right in that we are not making any announcements at E3. I’ve always said a 10-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that.”
Guess we can consider this rumor (or is that hopeful speculation) debunked.
