Either The PlayStation 4 Or Xbox 720 Will Release In 2013 – Report

The next gen consoles dilemma.

Posted By | On 11th, Nov. 2012 Under News | Follow This Author @GamingBoltTweet


We are in the seventh generation of gaming and it’s safe to assume that it’s on its last legs. The Xbox 360 is over 7 years old now and the PlayStation 3 will complete six years in the marker later this month. So the advent of next generation consoles, i.e. the PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 is inevitable.

Xbox 360 took a full year headstart on the PlayStation 3 and apparently the same is going to happen in the eighth generation of gaming consoles. In a  report by Stickskills, one of the two consoles, PlayStation 4/Orbis or Xbox 720/3 is going to launch soon, but not in the same year. According to an interesting comment by Activision’s CEO Bobby Kotick, we might have only one new console hitting next year.

“As we look to calendar 2013, we remain cautious in light of a challenging worldwide macroeconomic environment,” Kotick said.

“We can’t really talk too much about next generation console plans, but I think it’s safe to say you have a Wii U coming out and there will be another new console coming and we expect that they’ll be very successful,” he added.

Interesting how Kotick mentions only one console. Is it a hint that either the PS4 or Xbox 720 will be launching next year? Personally, I think neither Sony or Microsoft would want to lose one year on each other, especially when the Wii U has a headstart on both of them.

Which console do you think will be releasing next year? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

    PS4 most likely…

      Sony has gone out with that they will launch PS4 before the 720 can.
      The problem is that Microsoft is being extremely secretive about it. I do not know which of them that is releasing first. But I dont think it will be in any longer span.

    It doesn’t matter that the Wii U has a head start or not. The Wii U could have a 5 year head start and these consoles would still catch up in sales and more importantly profit in under a year or two.

      Yeah, it’s more accurate to compare the Wii U to a 360 or PS3. I mean, it’s only marginally more powerful than those two and the “true” next-gen consoles will almost certainly cost about as much as as the Wii U since they don’t have expensive yet low-quality tablet controllers eating up half their hardware production budget. I really do expect the PS4 and 720 in the $300 to $350 price range and for the Wii U to go the way of the Dreamcast… minus the coolness, because screw the Wii U that’s what.
