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.
And i will jump for joy!
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. Evil
@eVILDEAD360 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
@ EVILDEAD360 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
@ 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.
"Sony likes to be the last to launch its system"... Yeah, do they really?
Can't wait for ps4
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.
I totally agree
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.
That's what she said.
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.
But but pc is better. /opinion.
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" What?
PC does support controllers. Infact it supports more controllers than any console. Next :P
@intentions he is talking about a games console not a pc.
@Psycho_PS3 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.
I'm glad you recognize that PC is better.
Xbox brand > PlayStation brand.
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!
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.
@ha2e48 In terms of "no games", I agree.
north america is not the whole world,You know! therefore, the favourite brand worldwide is playstation, not xbox.
xbox brand will still charge for online lol. idioticness
Yes you can play with whatever peripheral you want on the PC.
"its logical that the best is left for last in society" Again...What?
Trying to start a console war. Aren't you?
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! http://www.youtube.com/watc... just use a wireless ps3 or 360 controller!
"I like to game in a sofa, bed or lying flat on the floor in society " 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.
@Psycho_PS3Truthh "its logical that the best is left for last in society" 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.
He makes a good point though, letting Nintendo have free reign on the market for 2 years does seem highly unlikely.
Guessing dates is fun. Go on.. Give it a try. You know you want to.
Up is north. (city slickers 2)
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.
Xbox 540. I get it. Funny. No wait, the other thing. Tedious
Hey, they could call it that.
i doubt that cos 360 + 180 means that it's like 1.5x better
I can't wait for the next gen systems
WiiU Is Next-Gen Shader Model 5.0 Compute Shader 11 OpenGl 4.1 32MB EDRAM 2gig RAM Supports CryEngine 3/UE4 Enough said ? Ps4/720 will launch either 2013 if not they will half skip NexGen and launch in 2015 to gain power but it wont be worth the jump as a few years later say 2017 WiiU2 could launch so if they do come out next year dont expect graphics better than WiiU as seen above.
I am expecting better graphics than WiiU because I'm not expecting WiiU to have better graphics than this gen. Just sayin...
Corrected:Next generation consoles launch later this year with Wii-U. PS4 and NextBox to follow in 2013.
@EVILDEAD360 Watch Dogs is scheduled for NextGen Consoles. And the New Xbox is probably scheduled for Holiday 2013 and not 2014.
I hope so, because I'm buying day 1! I kinda have that same feeling though.
And I will preorder the Xbox 720 TWICE. One for the living room, one for the bedroom. And I will invest in a new TV with the next generation of Xbox. Probably Samsung. You can't go wrong with Samsung.
LOL...but what if your Xbox 720 can play to multiple rooms like some suggest?
Then now you can play in even more rooms! XD
I don't claim to know the dates, and I don't mind guessing.....? 360 successor 2013 Nov - Dec (1st week) PS4 2014 August - September Wii U will find it's audience, but will pose no threat to the quality of Sony/MS. MS will probably focus on Media capability, release maybe 2 huge killer 1st party titles a year... Sony will invest heavily in new IP and strengthen its 1st party portfolio... *The initial launch games (1st generation) will not be spectacular in comparison to PS3/360...but the 2nd generation of games will be. ...Just like how it's always been ;)
Lol no. The PS4 will be out by the end of next year for sure. Sony is obviously already gearing up for a great launch line up. Many studios like Media Molecule, Guerrilla Games, Sucker Punch, part of Sony Santa Monica and possibly the other half of Naughty Dog haven't announced any new games yet even though some we know have been working on them for years now. The games they're all working on are probably next-gen titles that will release within the first six months of the console's launch. Heck I'm betting that the Last Guardian will actually launch near the PS4's launch as well. I highly doubt it is a PS3 game at least not anymore. Seriously what kind of "technical issue" can be so big that they can't show off even a small trailer or demo? The "technical issue" is probably rewriting the game so that it will run on the PS4. The next generation of consoles is not far off at all and Sony has for sure planned on making their launch line-up sell their console by itself.
Seems feasible about the release dates, but the strategy part is too far to see. Microsoft having only 2 killer 1st party titles a year? Thats lest then (but not considerably) the 360 line up of first parties, we also don't know if Activation would be acquired by this company. Sony has a lot of Ips, but don't make as much as they should. I don't think they will continue to invest heavily on new Ips, that is alot of 1st party devisions. Too many could be bad in a buisness since. Having many is good for the consumer, but could be a double edge sword if they don't make profits to mantain all those parties. In a sad since microsoft having fewer Ips would make the existing ones they have now sell alot, because they have so few.I could be wrong.
acquiring activision would be pointless, the money they'd make via extra hardware and software sales wouldn't cover the cost of acquiring them nor come close to the money activision makes by selling to all the platforms; people wouldn't abandon the ps4 over COD etc; they'd still have the sony exclusives, EA and Ubisoft and Take 2 and THQ titles to play and arguably all those publishers publisher better games than anything activision puts out- not saying activision games aren't good but it would be a stupid move to buy them and make them exclusive; the reason they make so much money is because of the broad instal bases to which they sell; plus they'd still have to fulfil current contracts so for the time being nothing would change, probably not until the generation after the upcoming one...
after the lack of games at launch for the PS3 I will probably wait a year or so before I buy anyways. I have at least 30 PS3 games I haven't even opened yet and a few others I still have to finish before I do open any. Then throw in the games that are about to come out like TR, TLOU, Borderlands 2, Bioshock Infinite and hopefully TLG & FFvsXIII to name a few and I won't really need a PS4 until who knows when.
@Roper I agree totally....we're on the same page, the PS3 seemed like it was gonna suck at launch....but look at that baby now! Early adopters get the worst deal, but are completely necessary, but ultimately they pay extra and wait longer for games(historically) just to claim the new hardware first..... Um, like you commented I CAN WAIT...... BTW That agree is from me ;)
Thanks for the agree, glad to know I am not the only who feels this way.
I think the ps3 still sucks for me just not as much as it did at launch.
Lol... I get disagree for agreeing with you, and for exercising an opinion! Gotta love N4G! Meh!
N4ps3, im pretty sure its been established that if a comment states anything less as so y or playstation being a god then disagress are inevitable.
well my ps4 investment is waiting on sony to announce the thing and start taking pre orders lol, i will be getting a wiiU on launch date to play ZombieU then Skyward Sword and then the next Zelda until i see New appealing exclusive games from Nintendo, next xbox as of right now im not interested in getting one but a non shooter exclusive appealing game could do the trick.
About bloody fkin time.Am ready.
Next-gen will bring more variety and a small leap in Graphics. Prepare your money people :)
I honestly hope not. Microsoft and Sony already have consoles that will be competing against the Wii U that have an already well-established base and great developer support. Unless the Wii U crushes everything else in sales (which it will not as a new console), I hope the other two won't release new systems until they can offer something significantly more powerful. Note: Agni's Philosophy was running on a single GTX 680 (card released earlier this year) and Epic's Elemental Demo on something similar. Personally, I'd want them them to wait till they can afford something on that caliber.
Hopefully they're just announced next year and come 2014 or 2015 :p
We need them to come next year
