So, PlayStation 4 is to make an appearance at E3 in five months, yeah? Not everyone is a believer. Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter even goes as far as to say there’s a “zero chance” of that particular scenario playing out.
“I think there’s zero chance of a tease from Sony for PlayStation 4,” he’s told Forbes while giving the next Xbox making a showing slightly better odds, “a 20 percent chance.”
Bottom line though, according to the man: “Neither console is launching in 2013, so there’s no reason to tease them in 2012.” Except to steal a bit of Nintendo’s Wii U thunder, maybe?
The E3 rumor originated from MCV’s development sources who indicated that both companies’ next systems would be revealed at the show. As cliche as it is to say it, time will tell.
