The president of SCEA addresses the life span of Sony's next console, the possibility (or lack thereof) of a Blu-ray-less PS3, and the dangers of people buying the system just to watch movies.
That there was no mention of an online service for the PS3
probably because the question was not asked
The one thing that I will always respect sony for is increasing the life span of its consoles before releasing new ones. Instead of the 5 year standard they keep their consoles on the market for 6. I think the industry standard for a console should be 7 years just so that way we can really see what these machines can do and I hope that Ms and nintendo will follow sony in this regard.
is he talking about the ps4? and i would want a console to last up to 7 years, i heard a rumour that the new x box will come out in q4 2009.
Thats why its called a rumor.
I don't care about PS4 yet. God sake, PS3 isn't out yet!!!
F*ck next-gen, let's wait for PS4 =D
I mean is anyone thinking about the PS4? No. Am i thinking about the xbox 720? No. That's way in the future, lets concentrate on 1 generation of consoles at a time.
apparently your not prestigious enough to be a fine Sony executive like Kaz than.
Hey Kaz, just like we planned to get the hype going in our current situation... great execution.
Yeah Ken, You and Kaz are doing great!! Keep up the good work!
there wont be a PS4 because PS3 will destroy them.
3 months before PS3???? Sony already hearding more sheep????
they've started to plan PS4 cause the earlier they start the better
So that Means your not gonna Fire Me? Besides Did you see my Sneakers i Brought? i brought the New Jordan's So when i Talk with my foot in my mouth At least i'll be in style. About the Metal Gear solid 4 i Guess you figured it out now thats the POS2 Version. Konami Was losing a lot of money to Produce those CG videos so they decide to make it back by making it for POS2.
Did the word get to you about our new slogan for PS3? (I send it over our completly original messaging system on PS3 LIV--Network) Our new slogan has come back from our PR....."This is Living!"
PS3 certainly is living, what with the washing machine, cheese grater, kitchen sink, betablueray player, 8-bit graphics...you can live off the PS3.
the idea of the ps4 was only breifly mentioned in this article, did no one read the whole thing?
most of the article talkes about the lack of announcement of the ps3 production, possible shortages, why there will not be a blu-ray-less ps3, and why sony wasn't worried about trying to be the first in the market
okay, i don't know why it posted that twice
Whats wrong with this guy? Almost 2 months before the PS3 and gamers are still in the dark about certain functions of the console and he Mentions PS4. Who gives a Rats @ss........
When the PS2 was released Ken K. was already being asked about the PS3 and of course said work had been started on it. The hardware design of PS3 is finished so it's logical that their concept teams should move on to other things as production starts to take over. Just because they haven't 'officially' started to build retail units doesn't mean that the parts don't exist. I'm sure everyone understands that you have to build and order individual pieces of the puzzle before putting it all together into a console. Cell chips, RSX chips, motherboards, blu-ray drives, etc.
They already had working retail units at E3 so it's not like they don't have any experience making the PS3. It's their 4th system launch. They have plenty of experience. Best of all, they own their own production facilities and don't have to outsource nearly as many components as the 360.
They had no working retail PS3's at E3. They were just show models.
P.S. I hope they already have enough of those blue diodes, or they are so effed again.
there was a picture of these guys in a room at E3 playing warhawk on a final ps3 unit (not dev kit).
proof? The xbox 360 was running Assasins Creed at E3. It may not be true, but it has the same amount of proof you have.
What are blue diodes drewdrake???
