As I mentioned before, Microsoft released SharePoint 2013 and Office 2013 and the bits are now available on MSDN Subscriber Downloads. I am sure you are eager to try the new BI features. One thing that you need to be aware of though is that you need SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 in order to integrate the BI features (PowerPivot for SharePoint and SSRS) with SharePoint 2013. If you run the RTM version of SQL Server 2012 setup, you won't get too far because it will fail the installation rule that SharePoint 2010 is required. That's because the setup doesn't know anything about SharePoint 2013 and the latest release includes major architectural changes.

Then the logical question is where is SQL Server 2012 SP1 now that is a prerequisite for SharePoint 2013 BI? As far as I know there isn't a confirmed ship date yet but it should arrive soon. I'd suspect Microsoft to announce it at PASS.
