Sony “not even debating” a PS4

Posted By | On 17th, Feb. 2011 Under Industry News, News | Follow This Author @GNReith


Despite the PS3 having been out for five years already, fans shouldn’t hold their breath for a new console any time soon. Sony Computer Entertainment boss Kaz Hirai told Japanese news website PC Impress Watch (translated for Eurogamer by Keza MacDonald) that “as regards home consoles, the PS3 was put into business in 2006, and it has a 10 year life cycle. This means that we aren’t even at the halfway point. There are certainly many more desirable first and third party titles coming out. As we announce and implement new initiatives on an annual basis, I still believe in the importance of improving the software and feature set of the PS3.”

“I think the value of the PS3 will continue to rise. Because of this, a near-future PS4 or next-generation home console is not something that we are even debating now. That is to say, we are still concentrating fully upon the PS3. Right now, I appeal to you to think of the PS3 and NGP as a new, co-operative partnership.”

It seems we still have a long console generation ahead of us.

Thanks to Eurogamer for the info.

    i’ll be good with my ps3 for 5 more years. i am fine with this. they still havent tapped it’s full potential as we’ve seen from killzone 3 and uncharted 3. as long as i can get a replacement blu-ray deck and/or drive if i need (like i did last year), i’ll have my launch 60 GB (upgraded to 500 GB) for a long time. i still have my slim ps2 from when they launched.

    All this talk about a “new” console is premature. Ps3 has been out for out 5 years this upcoming November. Do we REALLY think we’re gonna get a new console with the list of titles lined up for this year alone? And then we need to think about possible sequels to come as well. I really hope they can do a better job at integrating the NGP and the ps3. Maybe synching accounts, or transferring trophies! Oh boy the trophies! lol Aqua Out!

    • dh4645

      hell yeah, they better integrate the NGP with the PS3! just sync the whole damn account like microsoft is doing with xbox and windows phone 7 games…NGP games better have trophies.

    Once again im glad to see this my ps3 days arnt over with the power of the ps3 so many great games can be and will be delivered no matter what it is.. NGP better link to the ps3 as we know it will .. And of course theres going to be trophies “) .. @dh4645 how much did u pay to get your blu ray drive replaced bc im a have to do that?

  • Pixolator

    The ps3 still have alot in it’s pocket to share with gamers, so we don’t need ps4 anytime soon, also NGP is on it’s way. As well as lots of exclusives coming up, it’s going to be a busy year for us and our wallets will suffer :]

    • aquaman22

      That’s for certain. Because I wonder how and if Sony really takes into consideration the consumer. I mean damn, check this out: LBP2, DS2, KZ3 Thats just the first like 52 days of the year!!!!! than we go on SOCOM4, MS apocalypse, inFAMOUS 2, Twisted Metal, RESISTANCE 3!!!, UNCHARTED 3!!!, possibly Last Guardian. Then the honorable mentions at least my wishful thinking STARHAWK!!!!!! so at the very least TEN out of the ELEVEN titles that i just mentioned are coming out this year!! NOW we must take into consideration the THIRD party games like CRYSIS 2, BATMAN 2, and whatever else that is coming out that’s going to be worth buying. so how SONY how in the world do you do this??? like what do they think about the consumer releasing all these games in one calendar year??? Aqua Out!!! P.S I LOVE YOU SONY!!!

  • Thatruth86

    Lol good points aqua -___- didnt think u was that smart ahaa .. I wonder how long the pps3 going be until they make a ps4 but i also dnt want to think about it ..

    • dh4645

      oh burn, nice one. i would bet that we won’t see the ps4 or whatever it’s called until 2014 or 2015, so u wont have to think about buying one for a while

  • Thatruth86

    lol thanks i had to though ..i can wait on that hopefully ill still be alive lol jk but if they are to start production now that would be fine but they should take their time with this one we all can wait..

    • aquaman22

      you guys need to read and follow up on comments that make sense. DO you know how much it costs for R&D???? that shit is expensive man. My guess is that we won’t see another console until 2018 with a 2017 E3 announcement. Sony Please stay focus on the software, forget ps4 for now! Aqua Out!!!
