GameStop preps for next-generation consoles, cuts PS2 from thousands of stores

Though the next generation of gaming consoles is, for the most part, a far-off abstraction, GameStop has already begun its transformation to prepare for the deluge of hardware and software coming from Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft. (GameStop, Next-Gen, Wii U)

SCE America CEO Jack Tretton said in June that quality is more important than getting to market first, stating: "We've never been first, we've never been cheapest, it's about being best."

This Is why I respect Sony but they need to be the first real next gen console out. They can't let MS beat them to it. Otherwise it would just might be a repeat of this gen.
Shok  +   842d ago
Yeah Jack said that but at the same time I remember Sony saying they wanted to beat Microsoft to the market first this time around.

If what GameStop says is true, it's hard to say which company will be releasing next year and which one wouldn't.
WeskerChildReborned  +   842d ago
My guess would be Sony since i too heard that they wanted to be first.
velocitygamer  +   842d ago
It has to be the new Xbox. Why would Sony release their one first? They have a lot of big titles that are coming to the PS3 next year: God of War Ascension, Last of Us, Last Guardian (hopefully), GTA V, Metal Gear Solid: GZ and probably even more I missed out.

I really think that they should take their time on the new console, just like they did with the PS3. It might've been the last, might've been the most expensive, but hey, look at the 360 and PS3 now and tell me which one is collecting dust and which one is pumping out the games.

It most likely will be the new xbox. That doesn't mean ps4 won't be right behind it. However if they miss the holiday season then it won't have a great jumpstart like it could.
ChunkyLover53  +   842d ago
It wouldn't be that hard to guess, Microsoft has all their developers working on next gen games, opened a ton of new studios over the last few years and none of them have released a game for the Xbox 360. The leaked Microsoft documents that state they will release in 2013, the fact that they have the oldest hardware right now, and the fact that they don't have a single game scheduled to release after March of 2013.

I'm not doubting Sony releasing in 2013 as well, but they are still churning out PS3 games and trying to help Vita get some sort of market share, if I were to guess, I'd say they want a new generation to start the least.

Sonys only big problem this Gen was

1.Online
2.Price
3.Controller (to Some)

Not Launch Date. But they still managed to sell over 65million and growing.

Really? It was just the price. If Sony had released a reasonable price for it systems, we would have been seeing all gen what we've been seeing for the PS3 for the past two years as far as sales.

1.Online
2.Price
3.Controller (to Some)
4.Release date(it's easier to attain a customer who is new, than to get a customer to buy a PS3 when he already has a Console).
5.Marketing or rather the lack of it.
6.Horrible launch line up.
7.Hacking incident.

Sony's only problem this gen is they don't understand America. They don't understand that in America people buy products based on marketing. You don't need to spend money on a lot of games, you only need 1 or 2 big ones with big marketing budgets.
lastdual  +   841d ago
I doubt either console will get a big lead next gen.

The 360's early launch clearly helped the system take off, and both MS and Sony know it. As such, smart money says that both new consoles will launch within the same general window (I wouldn't expect them more than 60 days apart).

I care. If you didn't realize. Sales do matter for gamers and the stock holders of the company. For example, Us Vita owners would love more sales for the handheld because then that would mean we'll get more third party support. Same applies to the PS4. That the console I plan on buying so being first and getting alot of sales would mean more third party support and more AAA exclusives from sony.

Also here another example you can relate to. If the original half life or any other valve game in the past sold like crap constantly. Valve would most likely not be around today and you would have never got a sequel to that awesome game. So again sales do matter for us gamers. Please keep that mind before you make another comment like that.
Jockamo  +   842d ago

acedoh  +   841d ago
Sales don't matter to the average gamers. The core gamers may care but most don't. In the reflection of life it's nothing. Just another thing for people to compete over.

In general I think competition is good because it forces improvements you wouldn't get.
GribbleGrunger  +   841d ago
I agree with Blu_flower in one way but not another. The trouble is that people make it a competition and we end up discussing who outsold who. That is of no consequence whatsoever. However, getting decent sales is. It's not about beating someone, it's about getting enough consoles out there to warrant 3rd party support.

So yes, it doesn't matter which console releases first or which console sells the most, what matters is that it sells well enough to get support. Unfortunately this distinction gets distorted when talking about sales figures and even I sometimes get drawn into it.

On a side note: with the Wiiu getting a bigger storage medium, it's imperative that the 720 does too, otherwise we'll get the same situation we had this gen where 3rd parties hacked huge chunks off their games and then sold them as DLC later. No thanks

In fact, the Wiiu could help lengthen this gen simply because devs have the option of making a 360 version and a PS3 version of any games coming to it (once the ports have run out). Clearly Wiiu devs are going to have to cater for the traditional controller too, so there's no reason for that extra screen with the ports. There are some workarounds as I've mentioned before, but regardless, Wiiu devs have that option

"We've never been first, we've never been cheapest, it's about being best."

...It's that mentality that's going to make sony file for bankruptcy. Investing on vita, gaikai for $380 million, an other $600 console in the making. they need to slow down, they're spending too much on their investments. they need to make back some of that.

what ever happened to the old $299 console days?

In my opinion, it's not the release date that made the PS3 not as successful as they had hoped, it's the speed at which devs picked up the technology. I think if they focus on making it easy for the devs, then they can come back easily next gen.
torchic  +   842d ago
@Jockamo

no, only reason Sony didn't dominate this gen was that $599 price tag.

$399 launch price and the PS3 would've been doing PS2 numbers, maybe more

@the bastards

Sony is a high end electronics manufacturer. they only know one thing and that's to build quality electronics, and you pay for what you get. finding a reason for Sony's recent slump of form is difficult, but it definitely isn't because they take their time to make quality goods, and then sell them at high prices. it's been working for them for about two decades, and has now suddenly stopped.

I blame complacency and lack of advertising but yeah it's hard.

why can't I buy a Wiiu, and wait for the shocker, The Next Xbox and PS4. Nintendo this year, most likely microsoft next year, and sony the year after. I'm a gamer first i'll find a way to spend the money on all three. To many great games exclusive to each company. No need hate on any system. And if you can't afford to get them all, then pick the one or two that you think will be the best for you. only a fool would pass up a system based on graphics alone. base it on the games.

darkride66  +   842d ago
Mika said "They can't let MS beat them to it. Otherwise it would just might be a repeat of this gen."

Honest question, why wouldn't Sony want a repeat of this gen? The PS3 has handily outsold the 360 since they were available head 2 head despite being the most expensive console by far during the worst economic downturn we've seen since the great depression. That's not a secret. I'm sure they would have loved to see a repeat of the PS2 but the way it's going now the PS3 will probably break 100 million in the next 2-3 years.

I dont care who comes out first, my ps3 has plenty to play until ps 4 releases. So i can wait comfortably. Plus, with graphics like MGS Ground Zeroes, Last of Us, and Watch Dogs, i'm content.

No way i'll buy a microsoft system, with their lack of exclusives, xbox live fee's, and kinect-only support. If they fix those issues, then i'll get both next gen.

Like gamestop would know. they are a seller, and they have no more clue when X product is coming to the market than anyone else. Both consoles are still being devloped, and as such the companies themselves cant put a real date out there yet. they have a target, and those dates can shift depending on if they pull in dates to hit a better spot.

and we have also seen CEOs (or i think it was) talk about abortion which has nothing to do with chicken.

*chip manufacturer* doesnt know when the chips will be done, the consoles are not in production, they are still in development from many angles. theres no possible way Gamestop knows more than an estimated time table.

the CEO could very well be right, Sony could be aiming for Spring 2014, Sony has moved most of their big titles to the spring after all. We will see.

Not so this time round, MS partners this time round may well be SAMSUNG or TOSHIBA as SAMSUNG i believe are responsible for building the XBOX 360 (S)SLIM (SAMSUNG relied strong on MS when is came to launching there HDTV.) As MS begins to venture into the hardware production market like Apple. If MS builds the consoles itself we may see some the of the problems return, but i would'nt bother holding my breath on seeing the return of RROD. The bottom line is that M$ and Sony have learnt a great deal from this generation, now lets see this apply it in the next. I look forward to all the new IPs on there way, Sony has this gen lead the way of exclusives and M$ Lead by Time delay DLC Exclusives, i don't believe that will happen next gen, M$ has bought too many new studios and opened many new ones too and we are yet to see what IPs are coming. Like i have stated Sony has exclusives but still fails in the important part money, that is what is important Sony are strongly in the RED and M$ are sitting pretty in BLACK(WONGA). Remember this nothing in life is for free.
optimus  +   842d ago
if i had to guess then i would say sony would come out 1st this time, seeing as how they have fallen behind microsoft in hardware and software sales in the last several months, and after their operating loss last quarter they certainly would need to get a jump on things cause they have a lot to make up for especially if nintendo ends up leading the way through next summer.

I don't really care who or when because I personally am in no rush.

But still , it wont harm you if it released even if its this year , the early it comes the better for you people that just bought the ps3 or didnt plqy the games they want for 6 years >.<

I think the timing in 2013 is just right for a new console. Being first is important.

The differences in the tech are not THAT big in one year, so this will result in some minor advantages for one manufacturer - just like this gen. Except one manufacturer does not want to make a big leap (like Wii U).

But newer tech will always be more expensive and you are trying to sell a more expensive product to a consumer who has friends that already play the competitors console, which is a few bucks cheaper and already built a decent library.

Releasing one year later would be an uphill battle, especially when your biggest franchises are not available at launch.

Just imagine:

E3 2013: Xbox 3 announced / Gears of War 4 coming in 2014 with graphics you just have not seen before.

holiday 2013: Xbox 3 launches for $399 with a decent launch lineup.

E3 2014: PS4 announced! / Halo 5 announced for 2015!

2014: Gears of War 4 releases exclusively for Xbox 3! PS4 launches for $449 with a decent lineup.

That scenario is an uphill battle for Sony. Of course it would be an uphill battle for MS as well, if they just changed positions.

PS3 has outsold 360 since PS3 launched. What hurt Sony was the lost market share because they were selling a 600 dollar system (introducing blu-ray format) when the competition was cheaper. For most of this gen they have been the most expensive. They won't make that mistake again with the price next-gen. As for releasing first ahead of MS.....I don't really know

For every console Sony sold it was selling at a lost every single one. Only last year did the company start making money, When RROD issue appear on the XBOX M$ wrote off $1bn £2.5bn. Do known that within 6 months the XBOX360 had already recovered that cost, Not from software sales but hardware, M$ sent out a message, if it breaks we if it and to tell you truth they stick to there word on all front, system goes down and up within the hour, ie this is why i pay for LIVE. Are you aware that not one single game using BLurray has been maxed out, yet you are paying for empty space. Sony's games are the most expensive especally the in house one, how much was GOW $69 £49. Sony has loss ground on the market in so many ways, the days of the PS2 are dead this is something that they can never recover. I'll tell you this Sony made M$ loss alot of money and M$ don't like to loss money no one does. I'm not aware of your age but when Sony forced 3rd party dev to fully support the PS2 killing the Dreamcast (DC) it lost M$ money. 2yrs later M$ came out with XBOX everything the same as the DC online, controller were all the same but large, MS would not have come to the market if Sony had not LIED about how powerful PS2 were to the public, even the PS3 has not done what Ken K (PS Create)claimed the PS2 could do.

ANYWAY GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY GAMING NO MATTER WHAT YOUR CHOICE OF CONSOLE IS, WE ARE GAMERS NOT FANBOYS

All this means is that they've only been told by one console maker at this time. At any point in time- for all we know, it could have happened right after this comment was made- the remaining manufacturer can give GameStop info on when their system will be shipping out.

That said, I don't think there's enough concrete information to determine which of the two will be releasing next year. I do believe, however, that the "last" to market won't be behind by long.

Sony is in no position to be releasing another console next year. It takes serious money to release a new console which Sony does not have right now. Add the failures of Vita and I don't expect the next playstation to come out for awhile. Their gaming division has been a financial disaster.

On the other hand, Microsoft has seen much success with it's 360 and their gaming division. They have the resources and $$$ to go all out next gen. Microsoft already beat Sony this gen and took a huge chunk of market share. It looks like this trend will continue again next gen. The way it's looking, the next xbox looks to be the best in the biz beating out the new Nintendo too.

On a side note, I can't believe some of you sony fanboys still keep on trying to win this meaningless fight with your delusional lies and excuses. Just throw in the white flag already. It's done. The 360 beat the Ps3. End of Story. Goodnight!!!

Raiden  +   841d ago
The WII, how do you find the finish line, is it determine but the number of consoles sold the amount of profit gained, the highest sold game on the WII is WIISport. If you agree with this statment then don't bother relying, as WIISport was never a standalone title, it was sold as a package. This title sold the WII to the public. The WII was cheaper and no was as powerful as XBOX or PS3 but it was release within this generation with last generation tech, so do we count it as part of this gen. Tech wises i say NO, but innovation i say yes and since innovation is part and parcel of next gen i would say YES. SO THE WII WON this gen but 3rd party dev never made much of a profit from it.

Why leave out the 18 second party? They still make exclusives. Sony has over 30 studios making games for them.

'- XBL is running way more stable than PSN and makes way more money as well. FACT. PSN+ is Sonys attempt to monetise PSN the way MS does with XBL. Sony is playing catch-up here.'

Please provide proof on who is earning more money and as for stability i don't think you can call that a fact considering MS just went down today.

The PS4 definitely needs to release first to be able to compete with the next Xbox. Microsoft has the most momentum going into next gen (although the PS2's momentum sure didn't seem to help the PS3) and with the next generation of Kinect, they will have something to pull in the casuals alongside the hardcore right from the get-go. Who knows though, things in the video game industry can be very unpredictable, but there's certainly no doubt that the Xbox brand is the strongest right now.

Im going to go grab a ps2 before they get rid of them. Need to grab some jrpgs also asap.

I think both ps4 and nextbox will launch in 2013. Neither wants to lose a year to the other and this gen has limped on far too long. The wii-u will force their hands even if its not what they will be because its a new console with hype that has a year to build a base and get a head start. Theyre both coming believe you me whippersnapper.

About 12 years later, the ps2 is just now not being sold in certain Gamestops. That's freaking amazing.

I dont think sony will release another console too risky.

RIP ps2 what a great console it was.

I thought the PS2 was still selling?
So why not get a larger store instead of dumping part of Sony's profits?

Although from what I hear of GameStop, it wouldn't suprise me that they'd make selfish decisions.

B-but the PS3 still has like 527 years of life left in it >:(
I dont want a ps4 to be released yet :(!!!! (LOL fanboys get with the times)
