Sony Aims for Last in Next Gen Release Race
Waiting anxiously for a PlayStation 4? Well while speaking with industry magazine Develop, Shuhei Yoshida boss of Sony’s Worldwide Studios predicted that Microsoft and Nintendo would beat them to market in the next console generation since Sony feels the PS3′s lifespan is a long one.Yoshida’s comment was that he expected Microsoft to make the first move though recently the company was upfront about the addition of Kinect to their console extending the 360′s lifecycle by 5 years.
I’d expect Nintendo to be first up this time out with a 3D, high-definition unit following its approach of releasing profitable hardware and letting others test the market and do the R&D before updating its systems. 3D is a risky venture however since the current TV technology is cost prohibitive and limits who can experience the effect.
