Sony Computer Entertainment division has reportedly said it would reveal the next-generation PlayStation 3 console earlier than in May, when it was originally anticipated to debut.

“Sony Computer Entertainment America will have an event to premier next-generation system… The premiere event has nothing to do with GDC… The event will be before E3, but the date is still not announced…,” web-site Gamespot quoted various Sony Computer Entertainment America representatives as saying.

The claim confirms earlier reports about premier event of the console before E3 and actual playable console at the show in Los Angeles, California. Furthermore, it is known that Sony originally said it would reveal more details on the PlayStation 3 at a premiere event in Japan on March 31, 2005.

“Sony has cryptically announced that the PlayStation 3 will be in playable form at E3 in May. Additionally, Sony will make an announcement about the system at the end of March,” a news-story over Voodoo Extreme web-site read in late January, 2005.

It is currently unclear whether there are any actual titles to showcase by May at E3 show, or the company plans to roll-out certain tech demos.

Sony’s PlayStation 3 console is projected to be based on the set of innovative technologies by a number of companies. The next-generation console will be fuelled by the Cell processors, new graphics processing unit jointly developed by NVIDIA Corp. and Sony, XDR DRAM memory and interfaces developed by Rambus as well as will use Blu-Ray discs for content distribution.

In order to make the console work Sony will need to have all crucial components for the machine – the Cell processor, the GPU, supporting logic and XDR DRAM – available in silicon.
