Rumour: Next Xbox, PlayStation 4 to get E3 unveils

Sony and Microsoft are set to spoil Wii U's coming out party at E3 by unveiling PlayStation 4 and the next Xbox in Los Angeles in June, MCV is reporting this morning.

The unveils will come as Nintendo prepares to confirm full details of Wii U's software lineup, as well as launch details following its announcement last year.

Speculation on an E3 reveal for the new Xbox has been going on since last year, but chatter on PlayStation 4 has remained very much under the radar besides a Develop report mentioning last year several first-party Sony studios had already gotten hold of a dev kit for the next-gen hardware.

Microsoft is expected to talk about the new hardware in some form at CES next week as part of the company's final keynote at the event in Vegas, according to one report.

However, any new Xbox is not expected until next year at least.

This week, a USPTO-granted patent from Microsoft suggested some sort of PVR functionality for the hardware.

E3 2012 takes place from June 5-7.
