PS4 and Xbox '720' to arrive in 2011/12, says Crytek

Crytek president and CEO, Cevat Yerli, said at the Games Developers Conference in Leipzig this week that "PlayStation 4 and Xbox '720' will arrive in 2011 or 2012."

"The PlayStation 4 and Xbox '720' will arrive in 2011 or 2012, we think," said Yerli. "But this is just our estimate - we don't know, and even if Microsoft and Sony told us, I couldn't say because it would be under NDA.

"But we think in three to four years' time, although there are good reasons why it should be 2010 already…but we'll see."

i think we all know what system he is talking about.

aslong as microsoft doesnt abandon the 360 like they did the xbox then im sure many people wont mind upgrading because they got their monies worth withthe 360, bioshock,gears 1&2 etc 360 poorly designed machine but amazing games

ps3 will be around for a while bluray assures that sony need not rush their next system

No offense to either console here but Yerli and Crytek deal in serious computer hardware. From their perspective I imagine both the 360/PS3 are lacking in terms of pure performance.

He likes to push tech, in the case of Crysis he has already pushed the software past the point of current PC GPU's, I'm sure he'd love to see the next incarnation of the consoles as soon as possible. With their almost zero piracy, good attach rates and unified hardware, Crytek could make a lot of money from the console sector.

But currently, the consoles simply dont have the resources to meet what he envisions. Now I'm not saying we wont see Crytek games on the current gen, I'm 100% sure we will. But would he prefer to be working with a more powerful unit, of course.

Personally, I think I'll be more than happy to invest in a new console in 2010. As long as it is a real jump from what we have now I dont think many would complain it's to soon. Well at least not those who buy them at launch.

I agree, what is going to hurt the consoles this gen is the 512 of memory. Not to say they wont push them (look at God of War on the PS2). Its just I am sure the devs could do A LOT more with more memory.

Downtown boogey3745d ago

Yeah I too think that Sony will release their new copnsole later than MS, since the PS3 can produce better graphics than it's rivals and whether it's more or less it wouldn't matter because now we're at that point where you need to have a tremendous budget to get the best-looking titels onto the market and we NEED to wait for the new consoles price to get down in order to recieve more customres and keep the business alive and healthy... (Not counting in the goddamn-lucky-bastard Wii) :)

Yes I know its faster but only 512MB? Throw in a little more to bump it to 768MB and it would help so much.

Ju3745d ago

Consoles are primary cost driven, not purely performance driven. And the sweet spot for both high end consoles hasn't been met yet. I do not believe we will see a new console, which splits up the market again, before this sweet spot can be reached (below $200). Hardcore gamers are probably not enough to sell millions of next-next gen high end machines.

I don't understand why some Sony fans always say "we don't need another console, we have blueray etc.etc." Don't you guys want a better grafics card, better cpu. You know, to play those bigger better games. You don't see people saying "well, i'm sticking with my old 7800 card till 2015 cause i have a blueray player in my pc". That sort of thinking actually hinders the advances of new tech. Why should Sony spend millions in R&D to make a better console if not even it's biggest fans will spend money for it? It's like they don't want a ps4. By 2011 new cards and consoles will make this gen look like the wii. But hey, if the wii is good enugh for you, who i'm i to judge.
@fishy agreed they're lacking, they're 3 years old now. they're putting up a good fight though, best gen of consoles so far imho.

@ju if consoles are primarily "cost driven" why don't consoles make a profit from the get go?(except the wii) Why do console makers always loose money at first and profit later in the cycle?(except the wii) Hardcore console gamers are 10-20 million strong, it's the casual market that gets you above 20 million sales. Usually the first 10-20 million sales go to the "harcore market".

With the PS3 nevermind the PS4

beavis4play3745d ago

why would sony bring a new console out in '11? they don't need to with the ps3. the 360......that's another story. because of the hardware defect issues, dvd9 format, and lack of universal HDD support; ms may be forced to launch a new console sooner rather than later. but if ms does launch another console, sony will drop the ps3 price. combine that with blu-ray movie playback and ms looks to be in difficult situation.

Whose duplicate account are you?
You sound like a carbon copy of juuken... that's scary man!

I made a factual statement about Japan last week where the 360 outsold the ps3 3:1. It STILL is sold out!
No kidding... I didn't make it up.

Yet, look at you in damage control!
It's getting kind of laughable, buddy, how you desperately try to downplay this momentus achievement!

Any fool knows the 360 is getting slaughtered in Japan... did you really think it was necessary to post your sales data from previous months?
Wow man that's class! Real class!

The very fact that the 360 achieved a 3:1 sales ratio to the PS3 in Japan at this point in the current gen is an absolutely astounding achievement!

I figured there would be the predictable lament from the SDF and I was right- it didn't take you long to start whining as per usual...

lol XD

*chuckles at dopeys ineptitude*

OH Man, chuckles at Colostomy's ineptitude at math.

You state you made a factual statement about Japan last week sales, NO, you manipulated the figures. Why couldn't you just state correct figures, but you NO, you have to lie. Don't deny it, everyone here can see you have, and can check the figures themselves on the WWW.

You state PS3 on 9k, but it was actually much closer to 10k, and you state the 360 at 28k but was much closer to 23.5k. Did the correct figures not suit your agenda, so you had to manipulate them by removing 1k from PS3 and add a further 4.5k to the 360 to get your precious 3.1 ratio.

"It's getting kind of laughable, buddy, how you desperately try to downplay this momentous achievement!" OH Man again, LOL, eight disagrees you've got, even from 360 owners who see how ridiculous you sound. It sold well for one week, get back to me when they keep that up month or two, but one week.

I figured you would be predictable and not be able to resist replying That's why I baited you with that list of sales data (which wasn't manipulated in anyway, unlike your figures - it didn't take you long to reply either. And again, you couldn't explain you actions, you just use a SDF comment. Sad man, your sad. You now the SDF don't actually exist, it was made up 360 owners, huh.

Reel him in, reel him in. Your so predictable. LOL. Care to reply again with some damage control , and then perhaps use that second account that i'm sure you have, to keep yourself from being bubbled down, and perhaps add an agree to your Karlostomy comments.

Go hug your blanky Xbot, I can see your getting upset. Oh man, your too easy, don't ever become a true gamer, keep being an xbot, you provide so much amusement. (baiting again, if your intellect doesn't comprehend it).

karlostomy3744d ago (Edited 3744d ago )

It's awesome you finally discovered your only talent.
Still, if that's the only joy you have in your life, go ahead!

Every time you reply I have to *laugh* and consider how angry you must be at the awesome ass-whoop that was handed to the ps3 in Japan!

The ps3 really did drop the ball there and to be honest, it is an absolute embarrassment for Sony. Dopey, your angry replies are testament to this!

Have you had problems before with obsessive behaviour and online fixations?
I can see it's really having a major effect on you, you can't leave the reply button alone can you?

Perhaps try some OCD medication. It might help you? I am just hoping you will get over this soon...

Oh who am I kidding, you wont be able to resist replying again!

Like a moth to a flame!
