Could an announcement be forthcoming at E3 2013?
So you kind of feel bad that he has to weather queries about the next Playstation, this time the PS4, even when he’s on stage at CES 2013 with Sony Electronics President and COO Phil Molyneux demonstrating what’s up and coming in the field of TVs and mobile phones.
A short Q&A segment lead to the inevitable PS4 question to which Hirai replied, “We’re very happy with the way that the Playstation 3 has grown over the years. Obviously a lot of interaction with the PlayStation Vita as well. All of the gaming fans out there, you probably know that we don’t talk about future generation technologies until we’re ready to launch it in a big way.”
And what could be bigger than announcing the same at this year’s E3? At the very least, an announcement following a release later next year seems about right. With Microsoft already hyping “A New Xbox” with their countdown timer, the hype is already on for this year’s expo.
