  1. As I'm sure every gamer on Earth is aware of, we recently saw the public unveiling of the Playstation 4 in the last month. But really, what information did we actually learn? We had a confirmation of the system's specs, we saw a lot of social media stuff, and a rough estimate of the system's release date. I'll admit Infamous: Second Son was a pretty big surprise, but everything else was pretty small beans considering Sony was announcing the next generation of Playstation. We got some pictures of the controller and some small studio games, and that was pretty much it. But I think there's a real reason for this, and I'm going to explain it below. The battle for the next gen is just beginning. First and foremost, let's start with the obvious. Microsoft has absolutely no choice but to show off their console now. There's no way they can go all the way to E3 without having to deal with the fact that people are going to be seeing next generation multiplatform titles over the next few months with no mention of their new console, thanks to it still being under wraps. There's also the problem of people being unable to keep a secret in the gaming business. Already in the weeks since the Playstation 4 announcement, we've heard details leak about the next Xbox from different developers working behind closed doors. If Microsoft waits too long, their console secrets will be announced without them able to control it. But here is where the problem lies. It can take months of work to get a full presentation together to show to the world. This is evidenced by the rumors that Microsoft won't be holding a conference till at least April. Odds are they were already working on a conference before the Sony announcement, but being forced to put it so close to E3 might end up biting them in a few month's time. While I could be wrong, I see Microsoft wanting to make a bigger impact than Sony did at their reveal conference. This means bigger games being name-dropped, more gameplay presentations, and it definitely means they'll be showing the actual console to the people watching as a dig at Sony for not revealing what the actual PS4 looks like. But then what? They've got two months to prepare for E3 and they've just given away some of their bigger reveals at their conference leading towards E3. They'll definitely have a better reveal conference than Sony did, but then they'll be going into E3 with things we've already seen. They'll have the advantage of those things still having a relatively high hype from the previous conference, but gamers watching online are a ravenous breed. We want new things, even if that means ignoring the cool things we've already seen. While I'm certain Microsoft will still have a few big reveals set aside for E3, like the Xbox's price and a big game trailer, I can't help but feel Sony is planning something big as well. Again, really look at what Sony revealed at their conference: social media, indie games and tech demos. We got a taste of some of their bigger offerings with Killzone: Shadow Fall and Infamous: Second Son, but there must be more information waiting to drop. Just look at how Square Enix made an announcement about making a future announcement regarding a Final Fantasy title. They clearly have heavy hitters waiting in the wings. A screenshot of The Witness, a timed exclusive on PS4 Sony had a rather small reveal for their next console. It was still enough to get people excited, but it wasn't the full picture we need to get a real feel for their console. I think Microsoft would be wise to follow the same route as Sony for their conference seeing as they know exactly how much they need to show to do just as well as Sony did, but you have to remember this is a war between companies. They'll want to do a bigger reveal so they can say they had a better conference, but they'll just end up handing E3 over to Sony and Nintendo, and they just can't do that. Of course, I could be wrong and Microsoft might just go the same route as Sony by just giving a taste for what is in store for E3, but I don't see that happening. Whatever does happen, however, should be exciting no matter what, and I can't wait to see what all three of the console giants have prepared for us. As always, thank you for reading.
