The lights are on
It is now officially 2013, so let's begin the speculation about the rest of the year. Will we see new consoles from Sony and Microsoft?
The Xbox 360 released in November 2005, and the PlayStation 3 in November 2006. Are eight and seven years a long enough life cycle for home consoles? Or would you like to hold out a little bit longer? And how does the Wii U fit into all this? And when will the PlayStation 9 release? Maybe Sony will skip four, five, six, seven, and eight, and go straight to nine to save on marketing. They can just reuse the commercial below.

I think both will come out in Fall of this year. I think around april or may they will be announced.
I believe the will be introduced, with possibly either Xbox or PS releasing around Christmas. That will be the earliest it will possibly be released in my opinion. Even then I see them coming out in 2014.
I dont think we will see the consoles in stores this year but they will be announced and come out sometime next year. If they were going to come out this year Devs would need to have working prototypes to ensure launch games. If developers had versions of the consoles we would know about it.
I would be surprised if we didn't see at the very least an announcement. I think we'll see PS Orbis announced maybe as early as February (more likely May), and Xbox 3 announced a week or two before E3.
E3 will be a big blowout for both consoles and we'll get a ton of info on both. Also, look for a Valve box announcement this year.
I think the new xbox launches early next year. Announcing it at E3 and selling them 3-4 months later seems kinda quick.
I would love to see new consoles, but not just yet; maybe give a sneak peak at what they will look like and what they're all about at E3, but i just got a PS3 a few weeks ago. Give it at least until next year; that's enough time, and allow them to play their older version games too because my PS3 won't play PS2 games
Yes! Of course we'll see a new Xbox! Only a fool would say otherwise.
Personally, I think they will announce a new Xbox at E3, but that is just a guess
They better announce something this year. I'd like to see at least one of them release before the end of the year, preferably the next Xbox. Whichever one though, you can count on me buying it day 1 unless there is integrated motion control, which I'm begging isn't in either of the new consoles.
We'll hear about it, if one is not released outright.
If they is, they is and if they ain't, they ain't.
I think we will see the new Sony and Microsoft consoles this year, we have already seen that the "Game Stick" is on its way. Also the OUYA. But time will tell.
i am still not ready for a new system, but if one dose release I guess ill buy it depending on the price. if its way to expensive, im fine with what i have. but yeah I think we will see a new console or 2
New Consoles will be shown at E3 but they will release next year
