Sony clarrifies that statements made by company executive vice president and chief financial officer, Masaru Kato, were Next Gen Portable ( NGP) related.
I'm sure it's under development even if they don't want the general public to know. At least I'd hope so with both MS and Nintendo already working on their next console.
A while back Sony were saying they were going to ask developers about what they want in the PS4. PS4 would have been on the drawing board for a while now
That doesnt makes sense, the quote says "We dont know when we'll introduce that future platform" and the NGP has already been introduced to the public. So it has to be PS4 related. Still, I think it's like two years away
Exactly, I think more or less they are commenting about the name to. People assuming it is the "PS4". Now everyone knows it will more than likely be called the "PS4", but Sony doesn't want to reveal that until they show of the hardware. Wanna keep us in suspense, as if they are going to release a completely different branded console other than Playstation.
They're definitely ankle deep in the next console. If not, then they're going to be behind. I just hope they release at a low price point so that they don't spend so long playing catch up. It seems like the first couple years of the PS3 had a lot of wasted energy just because the price was so high.
I call BS on this not being PS4 related. Yes we have NGP. There is also rumor of Playstation Tablet(think iPad + Playstation). As well as Playstation 4. I don't know about you all, but its very likely Sony already has hardware specs ready. A CPU spec is likely already in stone. GPU likely to be PowerVR 6 which is aimed at 2011/2012 release window. So PS4 is more than ready to sport it by 2013. As far as when depends very much so on Microsoft. Either way its likely to be launched by 2012/2013. If so it would have to show up at E3 the year before. Its the case with every console generation. I am doubtful PS4 will be at E3 2011, but technically it could show up as prototype either way even if coming in 2013 or so. At least to show off what kinda guns they have on the table versus Nintendo and/or Microsoft. Likely no game content, but at least a teaser of power possible.
ok, wasnt really getting that excited anyway, we still have many great games this year, not thinking about next year
Regardless of what Sony says. It would be silly not to. Expecting announcement at 2012 and release at early 2013 or mid 2013. Or they'll do it similar to the NGP, announcement at a Playstation meeting in January 2013 and release late 2013. But i still believe the PS3 still got a lot to give before throwing in the towel.
Any system can keep giving and producing great games. It's just a matter of needing to move on due to technical advancements, keeping peoples interest, and competing with other companies.
It's seems that every couple days or so I see an article, then, the next day I see another article completely contradicting the last one. Seems pretty dumb to me.
wow way to take your statement back really quick sony.....no denying it now it would be really cool if like the ps3/psp you could sync the togther but that a docking port on the ps4 for the NGP.....then be able to play you NGP games on the tv....if the NGP has the full power of the ps3 this shouldn't be a problem for them
It's simple. Everyone knows Sony is working on the next Playstation, however it is much better if they make it seem like they are not working on the PS4... Why? Because then people will have second thoughts as times go on about buying one since a PS4 may drop the following year. It wouldn't make sense to come out like Nintendo and say "OH YEA WE HAVE A NEW CONSOLE COMING OUT SOON, because then people will wait rather than buy the Wii which is already out.
Common sense move. People think PS4 is coming, less people buy a PS3. Keep PS4 quiet until its ready to be out within a year so PS3 sales don't crumble. Any company will do this. It doesn't mean PS4 isn't coming or in the works.
He could've said NGP during his statement, I'm sure he meant PS4.
Like people are saying, it was a slip of the tongue. Sony doesn't want people to know about PS4 yet so they want to keep it as hush as possible so when they do reveal it, it will be a little bit of a surprise instead of being majorly leaked like Cafe was.
really... Kinect and PS Move just came out a year ago. Why would they show the next-gen console this year. The reason for Nintendo is because the Wii was already a motion controller console. but then until kinect and move showed up, The wii or wii games aren't selling that much because of these 2 ,well mostly kinect. Then that's when nintendo plan on making another system. E3 2012 will be the year that sony and microsoft will show off their next-gen consoles. maybe, maybe not, we don't know yet. But I know that it's not this year.
Reread. it hasn't been debunked, not by far. of course it will be under development, they are just being careful about not mentioning it pacifically. I.E the 'PS4' is in development.
I wonder why it takes so long to get the consoles out.. Slap some ram,new cpu & gpu in that console rig & lets go!!
*touches finger to nose*
main 2 reasons it slow development is time an money they want make console that will stay competitive 5 + years an they want it too be cheap too mass produce think they learn a bit from ps3 with the high cost an hard too develop for
doesn't cheaper mean less power?
Doesn't mean a thing, they've been working on it since the PS3 launch, just as they were working on PS3 at PS2's launch, and so on. Duh
so far,only confirmed info is that the PS? dispenses Skor bars. rumors,everything else.
I feel like I'm tha only person happy with my PS3.PS2 is going 10+ years strong and most of its best games came out in years 8-10. One of Sony top developers even came out said their is no need to rush a new PS out.UC3,inFamous 2,LBP 2,KZ3,and Socom 4 are all blueprints of what is coming in tha future. If MS and nintendo wants to complete with tha PS3 let them.Tha PS3 is not even $200 yet.I would like to see tha PS4 announced in 2013 and release late 2014 around tha price of $300.
