‘It’s too early to talk about the end of this gen’, says Sony’s Yoshida

PS4 chatter is premature, according to Shuhei Yoshida president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios. The exec has stated that while consoles may hit technical boundaries near the end of their span, new services and ideas can prolong life cycles beyond what is possible with raw hardware.

I don't believe it's too early to talk about the next generation. I also don't believe we should talk about this generation ending, especially with all of the blockbuster games still coming.

What Yoshida is saying - "Its still too early to talk about PS4"

What Yoshida is thinking - "Busy, busy months ahead with talking to all the developers and our studios about the latest PS4 devkit, hopefully we can reveal the next PlayStation next year"

Spot on. It must be an engaging but stressful time for all 3 console makers. Imagine the pressure of trying to ready a console for an enticing reveal, whilst looking to 1up your competitors.

Sony....C'Mon...hype old ps3..?
Ok,not interesting.

I buy new xbox and WiiU 2013.

If more ps3 games start to be this quality I can wait for ps4 and skip wiiU.

It's about games no? Sure wiiU is newer but would I miss out on the last of us for zombieU? HELL NO!

Because Microsoft doesn't continue to boast about how massive their success is with the Xbox 360. And they've already announced their new Xbox for 2013.

That was sarcasm by the way.

new xbox won't be out next year.

This gen isnt ending yet... Sony plans to support ps3 until 2015 so thats roughly 2-3 more years.. Just cuz new consoles are incoming doesnt mean its over.. The install base with current gen is pretty strong & im sure devs want to reach out to everyone.. This gen is over the hill tho & will slowly cease to exist as nx gen systems build their install base..

Vita isnt doing to hot because there isnt a transition between psp & it.. ppl dont want to give up their collections of umds for one system that isnt even a year old yet.. Itl grow as soon as they drop the price a bit & charge a realistic amount for them damn memory cards.. That sh*t is too damn expensive right now.. $80 in credit for a 32GB card is BS.. But u need it for apps, demos, music, pictures, videos, & games is insane.. that needs to be dropped in price by at least 50%

Regardless I'll still be playing my ps3 well into next gen. I'm in no rush to buy another expensive console so I'll enjoy the one I got for as long as I can

You and me both. On top of that, I learned my lesson this gen about being an early adopter. Hardware issues, steep prices and for what? A handful of exclusives and some ports available on current consoles?

Even when the next gen arrives, I'll be waiting at least a year, if not more before jumping on board this time. Even if they stopped making games for this gen today, there more than enough games in my backlog to keep me busy for the next couple of years.
