Last week we reported on a rumor of Sony possibly announcing its PlayStation 4 at a pre-E3 event this year, or at least at this year’s E3. Even though Sony’s Home Entertainment VP may have been privy to some inside information, PlayStation 4 news doesn’t get more official than a quote directly from Sony CEO, Kaz Hirai.

In an interview with the Business section of The Times, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai let loose the company won’t make an announcement unless Microsoft does. Hirai says in the interview, “Why go first, when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better?”

As much as we’re anticipating the announcement of both the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4, we can’t help but feel his comments are a bit on the arrogant side. Sony most likely already knows what it wants to do with its PlayStation 4 and any changes they can make with their next-fen console after Microsoft announces its console probably won’t make that much of a difference, and instead will have Microsoft delivering its console before Sony, which we know PlayStation fanboys won’t be happy to hear.
