Next Xbox, PS4 for Spring 2013 reveals?

Almost certainly not what the new Xbox will look like – but don’t you just love a cool case mod?

File this one under “I’ll believe it when I see it” – venerable UK games mag turned page-view hungry website, CVG, are reporting that we’ll see the new Xbox and Playstation consoles revealed in the Spring – with Apple style events planned for the Games Developers Conference in San Francisco at the end of March.

Which would be delightful, but for the fact that most people attending the conference are already working on titles for the new systems, so  the impact of a reveal at such an event would seem to be muted at best.   A behind-doors, strictly policed, NDA-heavy presentation I can see happening, but my money is still on Microsoft and Sony playing to a wider audience at E3 and crashing the internet twenty seconds after showing their latest hardware off.

Will Sony go nuts and have some kind of bonkers, crustacean-related shenanigans to show the power of PS4?  Will Microsoft show some games this time rather than media apps targeted solely towards their US heartland?  Will Nintendo show us some killer games that make the Wii U look worthwhile? Or will Gabe Newell sneak in with a “Half-Life 3“/Steambox announcement which sucks the oxygen out of the whole internets?

There’s nothing like an imminent new generation of hardware to make gaming more exciting…
