Rumor: Sony To Launch PS4 Ahead Of Xbox 720


Another heavy PS4 rumor is causing tidal waves across the internet today, this time from VG247, citing sources who say Sony believes completely that it has the upper hand on Microsoft this time around.

That’s on the heels of an earlier report claiming Microsoft’s next console will need to be constantly connected to operate, and that it’ll come ready to with two GPUs.

“Sony are completely in the belief that they have the jump on Microsoft this time,” said a source. “You should be watching the timing of next year’s E3 keynotes, and who’s going to go first.”

Adding: “Top line publishers already know about it. Developers working with publishers – like Ubisoft, for example – already know what’s going on. They’re already working on it.”

    I would say that yes they do need to get their console closer to the next Microsoft office, I am not convinced that they need to be first. Instead they should instead focus on good content and good hardware at a price that doesn’t scare people

    good points amdfan81, i dont think its necessarily who should get theirs out first that will have the upper hand, although this could play a factor, but its about the price, the games and what they have to offer. I am a bit of a fan boy anyway so ill buy a ps4 without hesitation, hopefully yhe price tag wont be too rediculous though lol

    i dunno about that.
    they certainly wont do what they did last time and release a year later, but i cant see them releasing earlier either.

    Many people got fired over the PS3′s original price point, 1-year launch delay, and rolling out the carpet for the “360 era”. So its no surprise that they aren’t as arrogant this time around. They better keep their ears to the ground if they’re trying to gain back some ground. However, the rumored “No Used Games” policy on the new Playstation will undoubtedly kill any early momentum Sony creates over Microsoft.

    it had nothing to do with arrogance they released late because they had allot of manufacturing issues with everything!
    cell they couldent get the 8th SPU working.
    which is why they shipped with them disabled.
    the RSX was severely overheating.
    bluray drives the lasers kept failing (mine died only 3 months after release!).
    and same with the XDR RAM it also kept overheating and causing problems.
    the ps3 was delayed so much and cost so much because as usual $ony tried to be a little too exotic with the architecture and they ran into a few walls.
    they wont do that this time, they have learnt their lesson.
    but that said i still cant see them releasing earlier.
