Sony: No PS4 any time soon

Sony has once again stuck to its guns over the PlayStation 3's "10 year life-span", stating that it sees sales of the console "far outlasting" that of the PS2.

Speaking in a statement given to T3 magazine, the company said: "PS3 won't celebrate its second birthday in the UK until March of this year, and we've said all along that the life-cycle for this generation of hardware will be longer than previous models.

"PS2 was still going strong after eight years, and with the power the Cell processor provides, not to mention the fact that PS3 is inherently future-proof, we see the PS3 sales curve far outlasting that of PS2."

That right there says it all

Its a good thing they're focusing on the present and not trying to get one step ahead of the competition.

thank you for justifying my love. I knew all the PS4 talk was just fanboy fodder. It wouldn't make sense from both a business standpoint and a practical standpoint. Devs are just now scratching the surface of what this badboy can do. I played God of War II a few months back (I know I'm late but listen) and it looked better than any Wii game I've seen and a few launch games for the two true next-gen systems. What does that mean? That means that as devs get more comfortable with a system they can do more with it. Now why would Sony release a PS4 when this is nowhere near happening with the PS3? Stop the madness.

Bottom line is my 60gb PS3, purchased for 550.00 in March 07, with no fee to play online, blu-ray movie capability, AND the option to use any HDD I want is going to save me approximately 600.00 bucks over 10 years that I would've spent on Xbox live fees, paying for MS' rip off bigger hard drive, a Wifi connector, etc had I chosen an Xbox. Hate all you want, it's true (assuming XBL fees stay at 49.99 when paying on Xbox and not purchasing cards through a retailer).

anyways who wants a PS4 i know i do, but im to busy with my PS3, to much awesomeness comming out i dont expect another console for a while.

thats_just_prime3151d ago

Well that confirms it the ps4 will be out soon. N4G logic states that anytime a company denies something its true.

... I can't find any other way of saying it.

They haven't even pushed the console as hard as they could yet.

holy crap... EVEN if it was coming NEXT week they would still say that is not coming.. some people i swear..

Yeah right...If Sony were to announce the PS4 released date, the PS3 would see a huge drop in sales instantly. I predicted the PS4 will be launched Nov 2011. Quote me on that.

Monolith3151d ago

No more like 2012 maybe

SSCOOLCHEA3151d ago

Patchstation would ever believe that the ps4 is coming . It makes him look so stupid every time he post about anything . I don't even think he knows its stupid anymore . Its not even funny , if your only doing it to be funny . It makes you look like a fkn retard . hey but maybe you are retarded so i apologize ..

need a PS4 when the PS3 life cycle is 10yrs....?

Arsenal4Ever3151d ago

Who needs a PS2 when the PS1 has a lifecycle of 10 years. PS2 came out in year 6 of PS1 life and PS3 came out in year 6 of PS2's life.

I really hope the Eighth generation of Video-game consoles does not start for at least another 5 years.
The consoles of now still have lots of potential so lets just see how that potential can be maxed out in the next few years.

The demo yells out FLOP.

eeew

LarVanian3151d ago

What does your comment have to do with this topic?
Calling a game a flop based on a 7 minute demo? You have a magnificent way of judging things. Now go jump off a bridge.

Aaaah, a newly sprung bot.
Fresh from the Microsoft oven.

Don't worry guys. It seems that a couple of individuals are trying incredibly hard to piss people off. :/

I would seriously be Awestruck If someone of your heightened stupidity were to ever find another woman as stupid as yourself and manage to break that 25+ year virginity record you got going on.
