Gaikai Boss Says Either Microsoft or Sony Won’t Be Making a Next-Generation Console

The chief product officer of future game streaming company Gaikai thinks one of the companies that makes home video game consoles will announce at E3 that they won’t be making any more of them.

“Not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3,” Nanea Reeves told Industry Gamers at CES.

So Reeves isn’t talking about Nintendo, which is launching a new console this year. She must be talking, then, about Sony or Microsoft. Actually, she’s probably just making things up.

Interesting that this this news follows Kaz Hirai’s declaration that Sony won’t be announcing new PlayStation hardware at E3.

What if, and bear with me on this, Reeves is talking about Sony and Microsoft teaming up for the next generation? It’s not an impossible idea, as, say, Microsoft puts Windows on Sony laptops. The two companies aren’t really competitors in any other arena. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

God, I can’t wait until E3.

Let’s suppose is true, imo, it’ll be Sony. Is not like they’ll stop making big consoles, rather center around vita and the handheld world while the life span of PS3 is gets completely out.

Devs had stated they’re “making” games for the next gen so only time will tell.
