Sony “Not Even Debating” PS4 At The Moment

Think of it as extra money in your bank for a few more years. PS4 isn’t coming anytime soon, says Sony boss Kaz Hirai, he wants us to “think of the PS3 and NGP as a new, co-operative partnership.”

That’s what he told Japanese news website PC Impress Watch (via Eurogamer), adding that it’s still important to improve on the PS3′s offerings.

“As regards home consoles, the PS3 was put into business in 2006, and it has a 10 year life cycle,” he said.

“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’s a good move I’d say. Especially with the PS3 only now coming into its own. I’d also like to believe that Microsoft isn’t in any big rush either, and with the release of Kinect proving to be wildly successful for them, a console from Redmond shouldn’t come in at least two more years.

As for Nintendo, it could release a Wii2 next year, but that won’t matter much, as said company’s crowd’s totally different from Sony and Microsoft’s demographic.

    That’s great news. Wouldn’t want to spend $700 on yet another console… Not now at least.
