PS3′s Future Doesn’t Indicate No PS4 in 2013

For months internet speculation has pointed towards 2013 being the year that Sony and Microsoft unveil their new consoles – and the arrival of the Wii U this holiday season has only heightened that suspicion. Some skepticism has surfaced, though, about the potential presence for new consoles next year, particularly from Sony. Concern for the absence of the PS4 next year seems to stem from three primary sources: Sony’s unveiling of the PS3 Super Slim, and a very strong lineup of 2013 titles, and SCEA’s John Koller assuring the community of an “incredible lineup” over the next 2-3 years.

History shows us that looks can be deceiving. (Culture, Next-Gen, PS3, Sony)

You know, I am a communications majour which means I can do whatever I want when it comes to journalist. But I don't have a minor since I am getting a BA in theatre. You know after all of these years I've been coming on N4G(6-7 years) and reading these articles it makes me think; "Why didn't I minor in business analyst?" And I say that because Patcher(even though I know he didn't say this) gets paid out of his mind to come up with ridiculous exaggerations such as this one. This is almost like saying, a new pair of air jordans just came out. I know we're not getting another kind the rest of the year. Sony knows what they're doing.

Some of you really REALLY need to stop with the HOPES & DREAMS
Sony has already said NO.

There is no PS4 coming in 2012 or 2013.


Hint: When you hear NO.....That doesn't mean Yes

Why would Sony say yes? So agree that there is a PS4 or even hint it so sales lower? Whos buying a PS3 knowing a PS4 is being made and ready? LMFAO!

I'm sorry buddy, but i think your new to this. PS4 in 2012? WTF?! LMFAO! I wouldn't even respond to such a stupid claim

And PS3 games releasing doesn't mean a PS4 is not being made, it just means PS3 games are releasing. LOL! God Of War II says hello to you btw.

_-EDMIX-_......No bro...I'm not new to this. Chances are I've been gaming longer than you.
That aside,

Do you know that since Dreamcast, there as never been a home console system that hasn't, at the very least been acknowledged by said console maker with at least a year's notice from launch?

Some people think XBOX 360 at E3 2005 was....but no...XBOX 2 was acknowledged by MS as early as 2003.

ATI wins bid for next Xbox (August 14, 2003 6:30 AM PDT)

"We selected ATI after reviewing the top graphics technologies in development and determining that ATI's technical vision fits perfectly with the future direction of Xbox," Robbie Bach, senior vice president of Microsoft's home and entertainment division, said in a statement."
My point is, is home consoles don't just sprout up into existence without public knowledge, usually given by the company itslef....it doesn't work that way, _-EDMIX-_.....and it never has.
Like I said...I've been gaming for a LOOOOOONG time dude. (I owned Combat when it was a pack in game lol)

I already said this. Supporting the PS3 doesn't mean no PS4 until then. They supported the PS2 well into the life of the PS3 so there is no reason why they can't do the same with the PS4.
Ryo-Hazuki  +   1047d ago
Sony supported the PS2 a few years after PS3 launched. PS3 launched in 2006 but God of War 2 arrived on PS2 in March 2007 and still sold millions of copies. Don't see what the big deal is and now that we are in the digital age the PS3 will be supported even longer because their will still be a huge install base using their PS3's years after PS4 arrives. I can see some digital games arriving on both platforms years after PS4. Don't see what the big deal is. PS4 will most likely arrive Spring 2014 but I wouldn't be surprised if it was Fall 2013 either.

.........and when you hear a double negative in the title, you tend to be wary about the rest of the article.
Wigriff  +   1047d ago
Sometimes you have to sacrifice grammatical integrity in order to concisely describe the content of an article. I'm not saying it's right; i'm just saying that I have seen significantly more egregious errors in headlines from major news publications. :)

Regardless, that was me who agreed with your comment. heh.

The WiiU is going to clean house when it launches. Just look at the pre-order numbers. Its a new console, a new experience. There is not a snowball's chance in hell Sony or MS is taking Nintendo lightly next gen especially that they will be first out of the gate.
I don't care about the "WiiU is not a next gen console" tag. In power it may not be next gen but its certainly a new gaming experience, something that has not been seen or done before in video games and there's where the next gen title comes in.
Sony and MS would do well to launch close to the WiiU. The PS4 will be here next year, catering to the hardcore first time adopters and the PS3 will be moved downmarket and become a "family" focused console. There's evidence on google somewhere of Sony stating that they are moving to change the focus on the PS3 to a more family orientated setup.
This is the PS2 to PS3 setup all over again. Its really not that hard to see that the PS3 will eventually replace the PS2 as the entry level console and because the PS3 is already so feature rich in digital content and distribution, it should be around a lot longer than the PS2 was so the 10+ life expectancy in the market makes complete sense.

I have no idea why people are disagreeing with you, VeteRAN; your analysis of the situation makes perfect sense. I get the feeling that some are disagreeing with you simply because you are stating the facts: The Wii U is going to sell like hotcakes.

The Agree, Disagree system on this website is a joke so i don't pay any attention to it. You will get disagree's if you say the Sky is blue or the earth is round. Its a real joke this system and i fail to see why N4G persists with it.

PS4 is incoming & if sony keeps bringing more PS3 games during its life, i have no complaints.. I think PS is bringing btr games now than ever before.. Ill buy good games for both systems..

English is not my first language and what is the meaning of article's title?
Cryptcuzz  +   1046d ago
Article title has both doesn't and no in it, which basically means the same thing. Meaning it is grammatically incorrect and just sounds weird when saying it.

It is no big deal, but that is what some of the commenters mean when they are talking about double negatives in the articles title.

No = negative word

Doesn't = negative word

Yes = positive

Does = positive

Example: PS3′s Future does Indicate yes PS4 in 2013. That is a double positive in the articles title and would be incorrect and simply sounds weird when saying it.

Double negatives or positives shouldn't be used simply because your basically using words multiple times in one sentence that means the same thing.

Hope that helps and I personally hope Sony would announce and release the PS4 in 2013.
