Is that a console, or a watch? Or both?

As rumors regarding next-generation consoles start speeding towards us like flies on a windshield, it’s becoming apparent that Sony and Microsoft are going to reveal there next consoles sooner than later. After all, the Wii U just happened, and that stuff needs some competition, yo.

This led us to wonder: will the publishers reveal their consoles next summer at E3 2013? After all, it’s only the biggest gaming expo of the year. Therefore we asked you, the readers, the following question:

“Will the Next Xbox/Playstation be revealed at E3 2013?”

We got 583 votes in, and here are the results:

– 32% of you (184 votes) said “more than likely.” This choice represents people who felt a very good chance of the consoles showing up at E3 2013.

– 27% (155 votes) said “certainly.” This choice indicated that you had no doubts of them showing up and were more or less certain of it.

– 19% (112 votes) said “possibly.” This choice was the most neutral of the five, representing a “they may, they may not” stance.

– 14% (83 votes) said “doubt it.” These are the people that think it’s unlikely the publishers will reveal the console(s).

– 8% (49 votes) said “no.” These voters don’t think there’s any chance of either console showing up.

Let’s assume “possibly” is completely neutral. “More than likely” and “certainly” are positive answers to the question and “doubt it” and “no” are negative. In that case, 339 votes lean towards yes and 132 lean towards no. Not quite a 3:1 ratio, but it’s kinda close.

In conclusion, you guys felt generally more optimistic about the question. On average, you feel the consoles have a good chance of popping there heads up at the expo. Let’s see if you guys are right. And hey, if not, at least the cynics can get some well-deserved boasting.

Keep an eye for our next poll, which will ask readers what their personal Game of the Year is. Good luck, and happy holidays!
