Sony Already Working On PS4, Confirms CFO

by Ernice Gilbert on May 26th, 2011, under Hot, News, PS4, Sony

Sony’s VP and CFO Masaru Kato confirmed today that the firm was already doing work on PS4, revealing the news when one investor asked about the steep rise in cost Sony reported that’s associated with research.

“For the home equipment the PS3 still has a product life,” he said, “but this is a platform business, so for the future platform – when we’ll be introducing what product I cannot discuss that – but our development work is already under way, so the costs are incurred there.”

In the past Sony’s made clear that it was totally focused on PS3′s success, but to Kato’s credit, platform holders are always working on new systems. If not they’d be left behind. Smart move I say.

But I’m starting to think this blatant confession of PS4 being under development has something to do with Nintendo’s impending Project Cafe. But that’s just my take.

    of course they are, R&D would of started as soon as the ps3 left there doors this is there job!
    interesting read on what insomniac had to say on this.
    next gen consoles wont be about raw power they say, and there right.
    games have come to a point to where there pretty far along, its no more about juice its about what features can you bring.
    project cafe and its screen in controller is a perfect example of that.
    its no longer about how good can you make a game look, because, well, ATM there not exactly anything to scoff at!
    its much more about what new features can you bring.
    now visually, but new features as in using project cafes controller as a handheld gaming device when your on the go.
    things like that, now there the future of consoles!
