CNN is reporting that Sony will not reveal the release date or price point for the PlayStation 3 at E3 during the Week of May 8. At the same time, they claim Nintendo will not reveal any of those details either. Could this actually be true?
We do know that Sony will be pushing their PSP download kiosks throughout their show and during their Press Conference. This leads us to speculate that Sony will be announcing some sort of new First Party Storage capabilities and a ton of great downloadable content.
Microsoft, on the other hand, is rumored to be showing off a brief two minute video. This will probably take place at the very end of their press conference and end with some ominous "2007 Release Date." The reason we are led to believe this is due to Shane Kim--MS Game Studios General Manage--who said “You mean the mythical Halo 3? I mean, it’s silly to deny its existence when the chairman of MS (Bill Gates) announced it, but I have nothing to announce now, but expect there to be a significant announcement at E3.”
The third of the "Big 3," Nintendo, is said, by CNN, to only be revealing more details about the Virtual Console by revealing many new partners.
If both Sony and Nintendo are silent about all the pressing details on their new consoles, will this make gamers run into the arms of Microsoft and the Xbox 360? If Microsoft has their way, this is exactly what will happen.
