Console Wars 2013: Sony PS4 and its competitors
It's not just Microsoft and Nintendo looking to take down the PlayStation this year.
Microsoft 'Next' Xbox
Compared with the next Xbox console from Microsoft, we actually know a ton about the PS4. Conventional wisdom says that Sony and Microsoft will take turns this year, trading bits of carefully vetted information about specs and features to maintain consumer interest throughout 2013 (and no, it probably won't be called the Xbox 720).
Thein the current generation when it comes to online gaming and building a console-centric social network, the Xbox still has a lot of areas it could grow into. Will it add a Blu-ray drive? Cloud-streaming games? Expanded live television options? We suspect that at least a few of these questions will be answered within the next few months.
