We all know that the PlayStation 4 is almost certainly on its way – it’s just a matter of when at this stage. Well, chatting with Chilean news website El Mercurio Online (great name, by the way), Sony’s vice president of home entertainment Hiroshi Sakamoto has hinted that a reveal could come as soon as May. That’s in less than five months, folks. Oh boy...

“Our friends at Sony PlayStation are getting prepared," he told the website. "For now, I can only say that we’re focused on the gaming event E3, set for this June. The announcement may be then, or possibly earlier in May.”

Sakamoto doesn’t work for Sony Computer Entertainment, so his comments should be taken with a pinch of salt. However, we imagine that his role in the home entertainment department would give him access to some of PlayStation's plans.

The good news is that if the platform holder is preparing for a pre-E3 reveal, then there’s a big chance that we’ll learn more about it soon. Are you excited? Let us know in the comments section below.
