Sony's Kaz Hirai: No PlayStation 4 Announcement At E3 2012

We've heard plenty of rumors about both Sony and Microsoft prepping new console reveals for E3 later this year, but if the publisher itself is to be believed, at least one of these isn't happening.

The Wall Street Journal reports that at CES, Sony bigwig (and rumored future president of the company) Kaz Hirai denied speculation that they would be revealing a next-generation console at E3 in June.

"I’ve always said a 10-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that," Hirai explained.

Will you be disappointed if this year's E3 ends up not featuring the hardware announcements that some of us have begun expecting? Or do you secretly hope that Kaz is bluffing so that it will be a bigger surprise when the PS4 is on display?
