Following the reveal of the PS4, Microsoft’s reply is expected to happen in April.
Unspecified “industry developers” have said that the next Xbox iteration will be announced at a one-off event, which will take place in April, according to CVG.
In addition to the rumours surrounding Microsoft’s unannounced reveal event, a senior Sony official, who asked to remain anonymous, said that the company’s PS4 announcement “caught Microsoft off-guard” and they “definitely ruffled some feathers”.
From Microsoft’s side, the company’s community spokesperson Larry Hryb (Major Nelson) cheekily tweeted: “Announce a console without actually showing a console? That’s one approach.”
Looks like the next-gen console race has begun – and Sony’s reveal has left everyone wondering what Microsoft’s next move will entail.
