Rumor: Microsoft And Sony Planning To Reveal New Hardware In Late March

Not only do we have a slew of high-profile releases coming this March, there are two major gaming events crammed into the end of the month. Now, a rumor from Game Informer (via Videogamer) is claiming that March will be even busier, with next-gen console reveals from Sony and Microsoft set to take place right around GDC.

“We hear that both Sony and Microsoft are targeting special Apple-style press conferences to unveil their platforms near the Game Developers Conference in late March,” the gaming mag allegedly reports in its latest issue. “E3 in June may be the industry’s biggest event, but both companies want to give their systems their own limelight.”

It certainly would make sense for both companies to have their own events dedicated strictly to their new hardware, as the torrent of game announcements during E3 would undoubtedly steal some of the excitement. But what do you think? Will we see hardware reveals prior to E3? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
