Activision: Another Next-Gen Console Will Challenge Wii U Next Year – PS4 or Next Xbox Incoming?

People have been trying to guess at when the Playstation 4 and/or Xbox 720 will debut next year, while report after report has surfaced suggested one thing or another, but it now seems as though Activision has revealed one of those systems will be debuting this coming year to challenge the Wii U.

They'll debut but they won't go on release until the following year. I'm taking all bets...
irepbtown  +   1064d ago
It could be a brand new console as a whole (not from Sony/MS), though that is highly unlikely. I have to agree with WrAiTh, debut next year, release 2014. That makes a lot more sense.
ShinMaster  +   1064d ago
Announced next year and released the year after.
I think we will see continued support for current consoles during and after next gen consoles launch.
The PS3's launch in 2006 never stopped continued PS2 support. Same with PS1.

And with the Wii U making games of the same PS3/360 caliber, we can expect multiplatform support to continue on those 3 consoles even after the PS4 and 720 launch.

its up in the air who will release their console next?

you have sony who are in trouble money wise and they just released VIta so is it wise to invest into a new machine? But they also don't want to be the last one out again and face 2 HD consoles

Than you have MS who have gone all casual on us and they care more that its a media box inside your living room than an actual gaming system. but they came out before sony/ps3 so they are also due for a newer system.

I think if i have to bet my heart says sony will release a new system in fall of 2013 but what's stopping MS they can also release one at the same time.

That's what i want to see actually ps4 vs xbox720 and see how strong xbox brand is when its going head to head with playstation, competetion meaning we the consumers win

and before i get many replies about how xbox360 is leading the sames above ps3 know this ps3 has outsold the xbox360 since launch and that huge lead has been cut down to 2 million and that's considering ps3 launched at $600. I think MS will have a tough battle either way IMO they have messed up wioth their fanbase. Each year before E3 there is talk of many games than everything is centered around kinect and more paid apps coming to xblive which are free every where else like youtube

wii-u free online service
psn free online service and with ps4 it will get cross game chat
xblive a paid serive

i fully expect xblive to loose some of its members next gen, why pay for something that will be available on other systems for free
xPhearR3dx  +   1063d ago
"why pay for something that will be available on other systems for free"

Because some people feel the price is justified. Cell phone users who choose pay as you go plans could go with a contract to get better service, support, phones, etc but choose not to. To some people, paying $100 a month for their iPhone is better than paying $50 a month and getting tons of services for free through pay as you go.

I for one love my party chat. I also love the UI and controller of the 360. Therefor I feel the price is justified. Other people don't like paying for certain things that are free on other platforms and can do without party chat for example. More power to them. Your money, spend it how you choose.
extermin8or  +   1063d ago
@xPhearR3dx actually people felt the cost was justified at the start of this gen but microsoft will have to do something truely exceptional to xbl to get consumers to ignore whatever evolution of the psn ps4 has and the bonus of ps plus for pretty much the same price as an xbl subscription...
showtimefolks  +   1063d ago

did you not read what i said?

here is it again when ps4 will support party chat system for free on psn than why is xblive worth the price when the other service is giving you that along with same other features for free

psn today is almost the same service as xblive minus the party chat and espn etc,

you need a gold account to use netflix when on every other device in the world as long as you hve an account you can use Netflix?

so its one thing to charge for something its another to force people to buy a service to use another service that have to b e paid separately

IMO unless MS truly offers something new and worth the money they will loose a lot of its xblive members when ps4 launches
xPhearR3dx  +   1063d ago
I mentioned other reasons aside from party chat. You don't know if PS4 will offer party chat or not. You're just assuming. XBL and PSN may offer similar services, but they're not nearly the same. Free is not always better. When I purchase a console I dont go solely off if online is free or not. The UI, controller, functionality, games etc play a HUGE role in that decision. Online is free on the Wii, but due to the UI, controller and games, I'll never get one. Same will apply to next gen systems if certain aspects are lackluster.

joab777  +   1063d ago
Sony cannot afford to let xbox get the jump this time unless the ps4 is superior in every way. Sony's financial troubles are serious and failure is not an option. Unless of course they r considered too big 2 fail and get bailed out. I dont think they r.

nukeitall  +   1064d ago
No, they will just drop support for the newer product like PSP Go!

If it ain't profitable, watch Sony (or any company for that matter) drop it like poo!

It happened to PSP Go, I don't doubt it will happen again.

Wow, just wow. PSP go was a self admitted market test for Sony, they dropped it because no one was buying it.

Are people not buying PS3s or PS2s? there's your pretty straightforward answer. The value of a PS3 is only going to increase in the eyes of the casual consumer or late adopter over the next few years, just like with the PS2. The PS3 will continue to sell as long as the benefits exist to these types of consumer - the ones that will always be looking for the cheap, high proposition console with a ton of cheap older games. The 360 will see the same continued growth and support.

When PS4 comes out, you can bet your bottom dollar that the PS3 will see support by way of games and services and they'll still be selling it years later.

Yep they said it has a good couple years even when the PS4 will be released quoting Sony themselves they said the PS3 will still see heavy support from them.

As you said Sony has never been one to drop anything, as why you still see some pretty quality PSP games being made even when the Vita has been out almost a year now.

***"No, they will just drop support for the newer product like PSP Go!"***

I'm not understanding how the PSPGO is relevant to the PS3. The PS3 is currently selling isn't it? So why would Sony "drop support for the newer product like PSPGO!" if the PS4 were to release?

There are more evidence pointing towards Sony not dropping support(PS1,PS2,PSP) than Sony actually dropping support(PSPGO which was nothing more than just another PSP...), but keep bringing up the GO pretending that it validates your argument.

Support will continue.
PS4 may be announced next year, but won't be released until the year after.
Besides, the PS3's launch in 2006 never stopped continued PS2 support.

DOMination-  +   1063d ago
That's actually a very good and interesting point about the WiiU that i never realised before ^

There's no reason why third parties shouldn't continue to port their WiiU games to ps3/360.
extermin8or  +   1063d ago
@nukitall the psp go was a different situation they didn't drop support for it they still support the psp and release psp games on the ps store which is all the psp go needs, they just stopped selling the hardware units.... stopping support means no more hardware no more software no more repairs etc there's a very big difference there. Sony wouldn't drop support for a whole console unless a successor was out or it had no choice but to do so or go under; that's just the way they seem to do their stuff they don't seem to accept giving up :p
Getowned  +   1063d ago
"I doubt it will be Sony. They are still releasing new IPs. They are releasing 3 next year so far that we know of."

Then they probably would release the new ip's on the ps4, and than soon after have ps4 exclusive exclusives fallowing the next wave of exclusives... Thats what they normally do, slowly stop releaseing games on the old system to get people to start supporting the new.

I hope the ps4 is announced and released at the end of next year. I want to get all consoles next gen, hopefully no more gimmick consoles(like the Wii, IMO), and most of all I hope MS and Sony don't release table controlers like Nintendo(I think its fine on the Wii U, but I hope not every console will do it) I just want a Dual Shock 4 with the same layout, but with a more ergonomic shape, better triggers, maybe grips, and concave thumb sticks instead of convex, and of course rumble. the perfect controler imo.
NukaCola  +   1064d ago
Looking at the recent chain of events I think the announcement is coming by or before E3 2013.

From the stellar line up from ports you can tell the Wii U jumped out the door a year early, when it clearly was meant for a 2013 release.

Super PS Slim finally releasing to grab the last of the nonPS3 gamers.

A solid launch line up of games in before the summer and nothing official for the winter.

Bluray technology meaning games play on PS4

Purchase of Gaikai.

The revamp of the store.

The Vita.

All these point to an announcement of PS3 really soon. I can guarantee it will be there at E3 along side the next Xbox. If it actually launches in 2013 is unknown but I think it may.

Although a thing to look at is Last of Us and Halo 4 out now --> feb. I wonder if the top hitters Halo 5 with release as a launch in two years and Sony with KZ4, UC4...or GOW4 as Ascension wasn't called such.

Either way who knows.

nukeitall  +   1064d ago
I think you are right that Sony will release some information about PS4 right around E3 or when MS announces their next console.

I don't think Sony will release PS4 in 2013 though. Everything points to that, with new ips releasing in next year, still strong focus on PS3, the revamped store releasing (yes unlike MS, Sony hasn't released a real update to the store since forever).

This is more a tactic used spread FUD to slow down MS. Sony successfully did that to the Dreamcast so it would be an ingenious tactic.
Chitown71291  +   1064d ago
Yea honestly I think it will be announced next E3, and released in Spring of 2014. That was their original strategy with the PS3 (Announced E3 2005, and have it release Spring 2006) , but Blu-Ray delayed it. I think they still want to have a slight advantage in technology compared to the next Xbox, but they also want(need) it more optimized. Really all they need to do is have more ram (at least 4-6gb), and faster blu-ray drive. I have faith in Sony, they will get it right this time....they have no choice at this point
bangshi  +   1064d ago
Quite correct.

They will _have_ to show the PS4 if they know MS is going to show the next Xbox.

They will need to make people not want to turn to the Xbox. They'll know people are itching after this lengthy console cycle.

I myself have a PS3 and I will be turning to the Xbox should it arrive first, I am sure I am not alone in that.
R6ex  +   1064d ago
I will buy the console that comes out first.

Next-gen is LONG overdue!
TheDivine  +   1063d ago
I thought the next xbox would release this year honestly. They could have had Halo 4 as a launch game and to start the new trilogy on a new console along with some other games like Gears, Alan Wake, and Fable early on next year. Im sure it will release next year but what will the launch games be? Som new ip's hopefully. People give MS shit but they released hell of new ip's early on and the ones that sold continued.

I cant really see Sony releasing the ps4 next year as they have The Last of Us, Last Guardian, FFvs13, and GOW yet to release. They need to release before a new console just on principal. Some of those were announced when the ps3 was new and if theyre on ps3 and ps4 i would be so pissed and feel jipped. They also have the vita to focus on which it def needs some real attention and ps3 quality games. Then again i know Sony wont let MS release early again so they have no choice in the matter.

I think the wii-u is honestly in the best position if they play their cards right and it is more powerful than current gen by a decent amount. We will see many games stay on ps360/wii-u and it will have exclusives. If they can make miiverse into a facebook/gaming forum thingy it will be something innovative and as big of a deal as xbl. They need to make the oline as good as xbl though because thats the golden standard which i doubt they will come close to (honestly).

Im content with my consoles now but once i see something like the Epic/Square demorunning a real game this will fel dated. Im excited for a wii-u but i dontknow if i want to invest when i can play my ps360 for a year or two until it drops and other consoles drop and build up a library (which is what i did this gen).

Really shouldve released now though with games like AC3, GTA5, Mgs Ground Zero, and others begging for more power. Imagine those 3 as launch games, i wouldve raced out to buy it right away!
extermin8or  +   1063d ago
I think like with vita and sorta with the ps3 nov/december for japan and spring for usa/eu. However blu ray alone doesn't mean mean ps4 would be ps3 backwards compatible, after all if it runs on AMD like the rumors say, if it does use AMD then destroys itself t'd be hard to make it B/C or not be at all..
BitbyDeath  +   1062d ago
All their games are releasing at the beginning of the year though which leaves plenty of time for people to play them and get a PS4.
Neonridr  +   1064d ago
If either of them are going to actually release next year, I think it will be Microsoft. I think Sony still has some plans for the PS3 especially if they can get their Cross Play with the Vita working properly. Plus with their financial woes, I don't see them hastily launching another overpriced console again.

It seems to point towards Microsoft, but who knows. Maybe they are talking about the OUYA.. ;)

I'd say next xbox will launch next holiday and PS4 2014 both announced at E3 though.

I actually doubt it. PS4 and the next xbox have not been even revealed yet. Lets say the reveal it at E3 so you are telling me they will be okay with having only 5 months to advertise it for the coming holiday season? I remember the 360 and PS3 were hyped for a year after they got announced before they were released

ex. PS3 was unveiled in May 2005. Got released November 2006

My prediction is they will unveil both systems at E3 2013. Release date will be 2014

Of course, the aim of the game is to unveil the new systems with enough time to build hype, but not to early as to hurt your (profitable) current console.

Xbox 360, unveiled in May, released in November. PS3s wait was largely down to BR but unvieled earlier so MS didnt have all the fun.

I'd say it's pretty obvious we'll see them next year. Otherwise your looking at a 2014 launch, frankly, the current consoles will be dead weight by then. Few select titles, other than that, this gen is all but done for me.

I don't see Sony launching the PS4 last. Due to that delay back in 2005, 2006 Microsoft has gained quite a bit of the market share . Putting Sony in last place, Sony will not let that happened again. It makes since in the business world. Release it early and possibly get some of those shares back.

Sp1d3ynut  +   1064d ago
Yes...but that was LAST year. All signs point to new hardware being revealed next year...likely E3. If that happens, it is VERY possible MS and/or Sony could launch Holiday 2013.
Hufandpuf  +   1064d ago
Wouldn't they reveal it this year then? In order to gain hype? Look at how the Wii U launched, a peek of it one year, info of it the next, and then a release. I doubt MS and Sony will just say here it is, buy it next month.
Sp1d3ynut  +   1064d ago
To gain hype? How much more hype do they need, when the entire industry has been on edge waiting for their eventual announcement/release for about 2 years already? If MS announced TODAY, that their next console would be on store shelves in time for THIS holiday, 2012....WiiU would be DOA. They don't need hype.
Eldyraen  +   1064d ago
As stated, "hype" for next gen consoles at this point isn't really a requirement. Between rumors and developer/player comments the market already has a demand and is looking forward to their release, let alone an announcement (not everyone but it is substantial). 6 months (around E3) is plenty of time for advertising campaigns to get the word out for a '13 release and as long as the games are there gamers will leap at the chance for it (again not all but more than enough).

As I mention below, the Xbox just "needs" it more ATM as currently it has nothing major coming out past Spring for next Holiday season so its the forerunner for first next gen release IMO. Unless they have something big they've been holding on to it has, by far, the worst exclusive line up for '13.
Eldyraen  +   1064d ago
There is a huge difference between last year and this one though when it comes to announced games (especially for 360) which is why many believe the 360 for sure will be released next year. After Judgement there is no "big" exclusive even announced (not counting xbla). There is always at least something known to be in the pipeline by now to look forward to.

VGA is coming up though and MS might surprise us with a 2013 lineup as they usually have something to show at least (probably mostly focus on Judgement though and hold out next gen for ces/GDC/e3 as VGA is more about games than hardware usually but could always tease something with cgi/live action as its worked for them before).

I do not believe there is a PS4 coming. Sony cannot afford to stay in the console business. The Vita has lost them more money this past year then anything else in previous years. They continue to operate in the red, so how could they come up with a new console? Again, this is just my view.

Dlacy13g  +   1064d ago
So Activision basically makes the announcement without making the announcement. One is coming, it could be just one of them or both of them, but one of them is definitely coming.

As with others here, if I am a betting man (and I am) MS launches for sure in 2013 and announces at E3. Sony is the odd man in the mix. I think 2013 is just a tad too early for Sony to launch new hardware. Plus they just did a hardware revision in 2012. It doesn't make terribly good business sense to nullify your hardware revision in less than a full calendar year.

I've been saying it for ages now if you look at the gaming releases and their timeframes for next year you can see PS4 is coming in 2013.

Xbox will likely hit around the same time if not shortly after.

Given the amount of PS3 titles that are all falling in 2013 I tend to think you are not going to see a PS4 launch in 2013, but rather just the announcment of it coming similar to what they did when they announced the PS3. they will talk it up at E3 about the next system with loose details but no hard dates or price. 2013 will come and go and it will be next E3 in 2014 when they announce the full spec, price and release dates.

Sure there are not many notable titles that are looking like they will fall in 2nd half 2013 but that could just be Sony looking to stretch their announcements out for E3. I find it incredibly foolish for Sony to launch a new hardware revision (PS3 Super Slim) and in less than a year they would nullify that by launching new hardware and by virtue announce the phasing out of the PS3 in consumer eyes. Common sense says they let the current hardware sit in the market for at least 1 full year.

I don't care which comes first. I plan on buying them both so long as they aren't $500 to $600 *cough* PS3 *cough*

I can assure you it won't be anything over 400 bucks, bluray and cell processor were brand new technology at the time. Also considering the first ps3s had ps2 hardware inside of it also put up the price.
