Sony said it does not plan on making an announcement about a new home console at this year’s E3 videogame trade show, deflating expectation that a successor to its PlayStation 3 will be on its way soon.

This year was probebly a bit too early to announce the PS4 anyway, but if microsoft announce the next xbox here then they could be pressurised into producing a new console. Their 10 year cycle may not come to fruition as they want not to fall too far behind solang as gamers want the console, it will still sell bucketloads.

10 year cycle doesn't mean the PS3 will be their only console on the market. They'll still have it on sale for 10 years, but they'll phase the PS3 into the PS2's position and have the PS4 as their "flagship".

dear God. look, i'll tell you in simple terms just so that you can understand it because quite clearly you're not the only one that doesn't understand:

PS1 sold for 5 years before the PS2 was released and then continued to sell for the next 5 years [10 years in all]. the PS2 (which was released 5 years into the PS1 lifecycle) sold for 6 years before the PS3 was released and continued to sell for another 5 years [11 years in all]. the PS3 (which was released 6 years into the PS2 lifecycle is currently on it's 5th year)

read that a few times then perhaps you won't be confused in the future and you'll understand the pattern

Sing it from the rooftops, sky write it, place it on billboards, advertise it on the net and broadcast tv, print it on tshirts and hand them out around the globe for free, AND they still wont get it.

It's just like the whole shipped vs sold debate.
I don't know if they do actually know and pretend not to or if people truly are this misinformed.

But thanks for the efforts GribbleGrunger

perhaps it's selective memory loss because i really can't believe people are that daft. on the 4th of Nov MS announced they had sold 57 million 360s. they just released sales figures of 66 million 360 sold. no matter how many times you try to explain that there's no way MS sold 9 million units in two months people just blindly believe it. it's incredible. on one hand they pretend not to understand and on the other hand they take nonsensical numbers and just accept them without question.

during those two months the 360 sold just over a million more consoles than the PS3. that would mean that the PS3 sold 8 million units!!! there isn't a chance of that. Sony themselves said they sold 3.9

Hit the nail on the head. I just dont get where they pulled 9 Million from.

I am really starting the believe they must just stuff the channels with goods just to get high figures.

I still think this gen will be longer and i recon a 2014 release with info at E3 2013.

lol....next week Kevin Butler comes out with a PS4 T-shirt!!! (his voice) "there is NO ps4, what are you people talking about!?!"

beastgamer1633d ago (Edited 1633d ago )

if microsoft announce the new xbox, well Sony.
Looks like your going to enjoy third place again unless Nintendo takes one for the team
but........then again SONY is the biggest LIAR that I know.
PS3 is like what, almost 6 years old.
PS1 = 1994
PS2 - 2000
PS3 - 2006
PS4 - 2012?? SONY BETTER!!

Is wrong to be in the third place?

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman"

"We're not making Twisted Metal"

"No PS4 at E3"

Anybody seeing the correlation? He's not going to come out and say that it's going to be at E3. Herp Derp.

RememberThe3571632d ago

I agree, I don't get why so many people take PR talk at face value. We'll see it when we see it, this year or next. At least some of us have learn to ignore PR talk.

Hufandpuf1633d ago

No new console announcements this year guys. Deal with it.

Baka-akaB1633d ago

I applaud them for at least killing such rumor ... preventing at lest one excuse for the inevitable "Sony's e3 conf wasnt great" we can always count upon from some blogs , sites or folks

RandomDude6551632d ago

It happens every year though.
Wah, wah, wah..ps3/360 didn't announce one title that I wanted, and who cares about what other people want.
This industry is full of man-babies.
