GameStop CEO: New Consoles Anticipated in “Next Few Years”
Oh Paul Raines.
As if the past teases and information bits weren’t enough, GameStop CEO Paul Raines has essentially admitted that we’ll be seeing some new consoles in the next few years. He didn’t specify what they would be and whether that included the rumoured PS4.5K NEO or Xbox 1.5 or not.
Speaking to [a]listdaily, Raines noted that, “We anticipate that we’ll see some new consoles in the next few years. We don’t like to talk about that because our partners get upset if we jump ahead, so we’ll let them disclose that.”
With this much fervour and information leaking prior to E3 2016, it’s almost guaranteed at this point that we’ll see one or both upgraded consoles at the show. Microsoft has been rumoured to be testing several new Xbox prototypes and a new controller design while Sony is apparently working on 4K output and slightly faster GPU/CPU hardware with its PS4 NEO.
