PS4 announcement hinted at by Sony VP
Bet Microsoft wished it didn't set a countdown now...
Sony's vice president of home entertainment, Hiroshi Sakamoto, dropped a less-than-subtle hint that we’ll be hearing about the next generation PlayStation at E3 (June 11th-13th), or perhaps in May. While Sakamoto didn’t explicitly mention PlayStation 4, or its codename Orbit, he did state that it’s a “big secret,” in an interview with Chilean Web site Emol.

When asked if we would see a new PlayStation in the coming months, Sakamoto said, “That’s still a big secret, but our friends are preparing Sony PlayStation.” However, he added, “I can only say that we are focused on the E3 gaming event, scheduled for June.'s announcement may be in that minute or even earlier in May. " The question was posed as to whether the news would be a "major announcement or something complementary," to which Sakamoto responded, "Probably the first, in that time we expect to deliver great news." However, he reiterated that the company will be waiting until May at least before it reveals anything.

Unfortunately, it looks unlikely that Sony will show off anything related to the PlayStation 4 at its Destination PlayStation event as many hoped when that event was announced. However, those who are eager to see what the next-gen has in store will be keeping their fingers crossed that Sony makes it announcement as soon as possible. Microsoft made its hand pretty clear with its countdown timer to E3, but in doing so may have allowed Sony to get a headstart.
