The new Xbox 720 and PS4 could be unveiled as early as March 2013, says reports, adding that eyes should be on the Game Developers Conference in March for the big announcements, with hardware going on sale towards the end of the year.

According to the news, both platform holders will reveal the hardware around GDC, which takes place in San Francisco between March 25-29, before showing off next-gen titles at E3.

The report explains that "both companies want to give their systems their own limelight", which may work better if they go one at a time.

"That doesn't mean E3 won't be without its surprises," it claims. "Next-gen games will be announced at the convention in preparation for the systems' release at the end of the year."

"We hear that Sony in particular is determined not to come out last this time like the PlayStation 3 did this generation, so we'll have to see how soon it can get the PlayStation 4 out the door, and whether Microsoft is motivated to prevent this from happening."

However, it will be wise to take this new with a bucketful of salt and also because the report appears to contradict comments allegedly made by Sony Home Entertainment VP Hiroshi Sakatomi during last week's CES. The exec suggested that the imminent reveal of a next-generation PlayStation was indeed on the cards, but that the firm would be waiting until "May at least" for its announcement.
