The announcement will either take place in May, or one month later during the E3 expo. Not surprisingly, this news comes at the same time as Xbox Live's head Larry Hyrb posted a countdown to E3, essentially revealing that the next Xbox will be debuting at the expo as well. Coincidentally, the news also arrives less than a week after the Playstation 3 finally surpasses the Xbox 360 in number of sold consoles.

 

Sakamoto also revealed that Sony expects to deliver "great news" that will be a big step forward for Sony's consoles. The new console will pack NFC (near filed communications) and is speculated to support Ultra HD displays. I'm certainly excited, are you?
