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.

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.

Sony has already said NO.

There is no PS4 coming in 2012 or 2013.


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

_-EDMIX-_2273d ago

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.

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 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-Hazuki2274d 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.

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.
