EA CEO John Riccitiello has said he expects next-generation consoles to be out by next year, while speaking in a recent interview about EA’s current stock price troubles.

“A major catalyst going forward, and the most important catalyst going forward is visibility on next-generation console, because that NPD data – that minus 10-25% that you’ve been seeing – that can and should be reversed out and some point, probably starting next year,” he said in an interview with CNBC.

This comment means that Riccitiello expects the NPD to be tracking physical sales of next-generation software by the end of 2013. The general expectation is that both Microsoft and Sony will announce their new consoles at E3 next year.
