Next generation of consoles will arrive in 2013. This is what says "EA CEO"

EA CEO John Riccitiello said in a recent interview on a variety of issues related to EA, not surprisingly, was one of these factors on the next-generation consoles that are emerging.

In other news, the sun will rise tomorrow

in words of other, the sun will set.

That would have been the case if Wii-U was a factor and a true competitor to the 360 and the PS3.

This holiday it would really be a stretch of the imagination to say that it will be out of the gate. Especially if it doesnt compete with Xbox Live or even PSN.

Which means the 360 can enjoy another year with the Gears prelude and the Bungie shooter for 2014. And still keep the casuals coming with Kinect.

And the PS3 can can release the God of War prelude and Last of Us and hopefully Last Guardian hold off on Beyond till early 2014.

Next year will be OWNED by GTA V, Bioshock: Infinite and maybe even Watchdogs.

Both consoles will show a glimpse at E3 for a holiday of 2014.

It's going to happen..NOBODY wants to lose money anymore. A successful Wii-U won't stop a ridiculously powerful Xbox 720 and PS4.


Rainstorm812341d ago


I agree 100% i dont see the Wii-U being a threat to the PS3 and 360 if they have similar power and if ports are Nintys answer to core audience.

and as far as 720 and PS4 i think we will have another Dreamcast situation when comparing the Wii-U to those two systems, underpowered and undersupported only difference will be is that Ninty 1st party games are very strong

tehpees32341d ago


Well you say they will be ridiculously powerful but do you have proof of that or is it an assumption because of previous leaps?

Next Gen starts Fall 2012
Whether you are stupid enough to believe its on par wit current gen or close in more is up to you, its next gen

PoSTedUP2340d ago

@ yabhero- it's this generation.5

next gen doesn't start until the ps4 and 720 release : P

@Abash: Dude! Don't hate on tentonsoftube for stating the obvious. The obvious doesn't come to most people on this site.

next gen started yesterday...on the PC.

Can't wait for the ps4 to lose to the xbox 720

He is a good source. If devs have dev kits I am sure the CEO knows about this stuff.

DeadlyFire2340d ago (Edited 2340d ago )

Well damn I knew this 3 years ago. Old news.

I am skeptical on power, but I know my favorites. PS4, WiiU, and new Graphics card I suspect I will be buying. Unless XBL goes Free so I can buy a Halobox as well.

EA just wants to make certain that EVERYONE knows Battlefield 4 will be a next-generation game.

BelieveinGhosts2337d ago

In 2013, GTA V will be releasing on PS3 and Xbox 360. The Last Of Us, God Of War Ascension, Gears of war Judgement, new Splinter Cell, Naruto UNS 3, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Patriots, The Last Guardian, new Bioshock will also be release. 2013 is already packed with tons of games, common sense would suggest PS3 and the next xbox would be released in 2014 instead.

A lot of people here will thumb me down because they act like anxious kids waiting to get their hands on a new gadget. From a business perspective, it would be not be clever to release a new console when you are releasing great games for your older consoles that cost 40 pounds each.

The PS4 will be release last because its logical that the best is left for last in society, but no matter what time the PS4 is release, I will be there to pick it up again because that is the essence of true gaming experience. To play the king of kings and enjoy it.

Intentions2341d ago

But but pc is better.


Psycho_PS3Truthh2341d ago

I like to game in a sofa, bed or lying flat on the floor in society HAHA. can keyboard and a chair do that withing the earth.

"can keyboard and a chair do that withing the earth"


decrypt2341d ago

PC does support controllers.

Infact it supports more controllers than any console.

Next :P

Kingnichendrix2341d ago

@intentions he is talking about a games console not a pc.

Eyesoftheraven2340d ago (Edited 2340d ago )


I comfortably play my PC in bed 7ft away using a 120hz 46" Sony HDTV. Wireless keyboard and the light weight Saitek Cyborg metal mouse pad solve the "desk only" misconception completely. Valve is even going to release a "TV Mode" catered to folks just like me for Steam.

starchild2340d ago

I'm glad you recognize that PC is better.

Xbox brand > PlayStation brand.

CGI-Quality2341d ago

Not seeing the relevance here, but sure.

OT: This does seem like a non-newsworthy prediction at this point. Still, any next gen talk is great talk!

Kingnichendrix2341d ago (Edited 2341d ago )

Until this generation I never really new Japanese people are behind in terms of technology to Americans. Thannks Ha2e48 for making this known to me. Thankyou XBox community for making me know the errors of my ways, only your advanced knowledge made me realise how something that has more power is worse than something with less. Ohhh and thanks for making me realise that when something is unreliable it, is actually still better than something that is. Well thank you.

BuffMordecai2340d ago

In terms of "no games", I agree.

chrisarsenalsavart2340d ago

north america is not the whole world,You know!
therefore, the favourite brand worldwide is playstation, not xbox.

leogets2340d ago

xbox brand will still charge for online lol. idioticness

You name says it all.

"I like to game in a sofa, bed or lying flat on the floor in society HAHA. can keyboard and a chair do that withing the earth."

It can do it better than a console!

just use a wireless ps3 or 360 controller!

Once more.....Huhhhh?

I dunno i typically sit on them and not "in" them, unless you have some PS3 branded sofa that ive never heard of.

This speaks VOLUMES about who and what type of person you are.
These are hardware platforms, and your personal failings in life dont really map over.

I am so sick of seeing all of this next gen talk it's already getting old and it hasn't even come out yet.Yes they will come out when who knows and who cares you have a 1,000 people saying different years and dates it will come when it comes everyone should just calm down.I want them as much as the next guy but guessing dates helps no one that's all i'm saying.

BitbyDeath2341d ago

He makes a good point though, letting Nintendo have free reign on the market for 2 years does seem highly unlikely.

TopDudeMan2341d ago

Guessing dates is fun. Go on.. Give it a try. You know you want to.

chukamachine2341d ago

TopDudeMan2341d ago

I reckon it'll be 2014 before we actually get the PS4 and xbox 540. We'll definitely see them announced in the next year, though.

stiggs2341d ago (Edited 2341d ago )

Xbox 540. I get it.

Funny. No wait, the other thing. Tedious

TopDudeMan2340d ago

Hey, they could call it that.

Samus HD2340d ago

i doubt that cos 360 + 180 means that it's like 1.5x better
