Sony: “Xbox 720″ And “Wii 2″ To Be Released Before PS4

Sony’s changing its strategy. In the past, I used to think that the giant would want to release the PS4 around the same time Microsoft releases its next Xbox. I was dead wrong, apparently.

This according to Sony’s Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, who told industry Magazine, Develop, that the PS3 has a “longer life cycle” that Wii and Xbox 360, and that the industry should pay attention to those two game console manufacturers instead.

“Naturally, in my opinion, Microsoft will make the first move. Or, because Nintendo’s approach was not to upgrade much on its basic hardware – Wii doesn’t even support HD resolution – so they might be the first to move,” Yoshida told the Mag when asked why Sony hadn’t discussed the PS4 publicly as yet.

“Probably we should watch these companies, in my opinion. Because PS3 was later than Xbox, and is more powerful, so it has a longer lifespan.”

So don’t look for PS4 anytime soon guys. It’s not coming.

    i told ya they would not be out for a while.
    they will certainly be the last ones out of the gate again, though hopefully not a year late like last time.
    hopefully sony have learned their lesson with the ps3, and wont release the ps4 at a ridiculously high price!
    they dont want to be playing catchup for the rest of their life do they?

    I know, but it seems as if they’re changing the game altogether, not releasing the same time as Wii2 and the next Xbox is a rather bold strategy.

    yeah its a risky one, but there much better off waiting and seeing where the competitions at.
    nothings worse than releasing something, than finding out your competition is much stronger than you.
    they have to be careful though, if its too much later than there going to have another ps3 on their hands!
    like i said, they dont want to be playing catch up for the rest of their life!

    hmm idk. I think nintendo will be the first to release the next system. Like you said they really didn’t do much of a hardware upgrade with the wii. I think nintendo is gonna have something really special. I mean look at all the money that they made from the ds the wii and what their gonna make with the 3ds. They can do whatever they want really. Yeah idk about sony’s idea either. Usually you wanna learn from your mistakes. Not repeat them.
