No, no, no... At least not for Sony. If they do that they'll ruin themselves right now.

after this CRAPFEST E3 2012 who cares who come out first. if only FPS games on ps4 or i8 with nothing else it dont matter anymore. video game industry dieing out again.
back in NES ,SNES,PS1,PS2 days variety reign. now same sh'tfest over an over.

and what makes you think that? by mid/the end of 2013 the PS3 would be 7 years old. The PS2 was 6 years out when the PS3 came out. Perfect timing if you ask me.

Some of you got to stop making assumptions because of steps or timing in the past. The climate, cost many factors, come into play TODAY. These systems launched at a higher price than prior generations. This generation saw the success of 3 consoles along with handhelds and phone and tablets. You have one company overall profiting and two companies overall losing money today. You can't based it simply on how many years it has been around.

I was part of the few that didn't believe we would hear a price drop for any system at E3. Sony in particular as a company has lost almost 100 billion in the last 10 years. They are not in a position to continue doing the status quo.

All I know is that next-gen is in development, all the big developers are making games for the PS4 and the next Xbox. Its inevitable that next-gen will arrive soon.

Ugh, I just didn't want to go through the process of explaining WHY this is a bad idea for the 3rd time now, because these articles keep popping up. The only reason I singled out Sony is because I haven't been really keeping up with Xbox in terms of how they're doing. I'm not going to talk about something if I don't know the details. Though I'm sure Microsoft would do fine putting out a new console by 2013 as they're financially stable enough to do so.

I really hope so, I'm ready today for next gen hardware.

After seeing Watch Dogs, Star Wars 1313 and Square's next-gen engine it's impossible not to be exited. And tomorrow, Unreal Engine 4. Can't wait.

It's possible. Microsoft and Sony could announce next gen consoles at E3 2013 and then there will be a war between Sony and Microsoft if they release close to each other.

It doesn't take an analyst to predict a late 2013 or 2014 release date.....
