PlayStation 4 rumours have been flying in thick and fast over the last few weeks, with the latest one reportedly outing hardware specifications and an anti pre-owned game system. However, according a report from VG247 (they've been busy today), Sony aren't content to be the last to release for the next generation - and plans to get the jump on Microsoft at E3 2013.
“Sony are completely in the belief that they have the jump on Microsoft this time,” stated the anonymous source. “You should be watching the timing of next year’s E3 keynotes, and who’s going to go first.”
Sony are apparently "confident" that the PlayStation 4 will be both announced and released before Microsoft's next home console - heavily tipped for Christmas 2013. This ties in with a statement made by Sony Europe boss Jim Ryan late last year, which suggested that launching last would be "undesirable" for the company.
