Despite an increasing number of indications that the current generation console cycle is at its closing stages, a key executive at Sony has said the PlayStation 3 still has mileage for a significant amount of key new content.
Like Wonderbook?...yeah right.
If they sell Wonderbook to Elementary schools they're going to make a fortune. PS3 $249 PS Move Bundle $99 WonderBook $?? $350 * millions of schools around the globe = Sony Stock rising back to where it was.
If they try to push the Wonderbook, something that can't be little more VR cards in book form, a folder sized collection of effectively blank cardboard pages, for anything more than $20 I'll be shocked.
When will all the Wonderbook comments end? What's wrong with Wonderbook? It's something which if done right, can help children learn. If you don't like it, fair enough. Calm down with the comments acting like it's a total failure of a product. Furthermore, I doubt your the audience Sony are aiming for with this product. Correct marketing is what will turn this into something even more brilliant.
I think Wonderbook is a great idea. I won't bag on it whatsoever. Greta idea imo. Now saying that, imagine if MS came out with this... You can imagine all the extra hating it would get on N4G.COM LOL
I think sony will hold on to this generation until sometime in 2014 while MS will probably launch in the 3rd or 4th qtr of next year.
I have to agree. Sony would fair better if they would release before or at least the same time as Microsoft. A years lead has been hard to overcome.
I bet they start selling the PS3 and Vita together eventually and that extends the life. Saw an article where the dev of ZombiU considered doing a PS3 version with Vita controls.

2013 will be an awesome year for PS3. Last Of Us , Beyond Two Souls and God Of War Ascension. I dont rly care for PS4 when i know PS3 still receives epic games.
Playstation will, maybe by a few months, be right behind microsoft. If, and it's a nice if, microsoft hits that entertainment sector along with the "hardcore" crowd and both adopt early. That would be a big blow. Developers weren't just telling us that they're ready for next gen, im sure they've had nice discussions with the big M n P about moving on. Playstation im sure wont abandon in house development, but that machine will be there with the xbox.
Wonderbook is an awful idea to try create a VR world through books. Its great they have JR helping promote it, but where it fails is you must use a controller while you hold a pad in your lap. The entire thing is incredibly clunky and unneccessary, this could all be done with just a multi array camera to simulate the book and enviroment like the Kinect already has. I think it is an interesting concept, just so poorly archaic and implemented from what I can tell.
Strange, because it looked like it worked REALLY well.
By really well, you mean the incredible amount of difficulty half the testers were having with it? It is still in alpha, I get it. It is just a poorly designed and constructed device.
Just a thought. Do you think that the PS3 and Vita combo can Imitate what the Wii U can do?
