As much as we’ve heard about developers yet to harness the power of the PlayStation 4 and how a couple of years down the line we’ll be seeing some truly spectacular new experiences, will the console see a shorter life cycle than the PS3?

Speaking to Tech Radar, Sony UK’s Fergal Gara stated that, “I think there’s reasons to believe that the next cycle might be shorter in markets such as the UK. It’s probably a sign of the times and how much has changed in seven years, but I think the willingness and the appetite to pick up new technology fast has probably changed quite a bit.

“We’re going to have a much better feel for it once we’re a good few months in and we can see how the dynamics are emerging.” Gara believes that initial update for the PS4 will be strong enough. “What we do know is that the uptake [of the PS4] is going to be very sharp. Does that mean this is going to be a much bigger cycle? Maybe. Or it might mean that it’s just a bit more compressed into the first few years, that the latter years are a little softer.”

The PlayStation 4 will be launching tomorrow in Europe.
