Microsoft and Sony to reveal new consoles at E3 2012?

Persistent rumours of an Xbox 360 successor being in development have been whizzing around the interweb for months now, with the occasional whisper of a PS4. If industry & retail publication MCV‘s sources are to be believed, these consoles must have been in development for a very long time now; as they are both, apparently, due to be revealed at this year’s E3.

MCV claims it has been told that Microsoft “recently signalled to partners” that an E3 2012 announcement for its next Xbox console will definitely be happening. The source for Sony’s E3 plans is even more vague, with MCV saying only that “Execs at the PlayStation firm have made it clear to third-parties that they will not be left behind this time”. If true, Sony’s plans to reveal a new console in 2012 are surely the more surprising, given their repeated declaration that the PS3 ( first released at the end of 2006) will enjoy a “ten year plus” life cycle.
