Before taking the next step, some of us insists into anything. More or less, expectations and speculations has been scattered everywhere towards Sony’s PlayStation pool of the next generation console.
Yes, we heard so many things, but one guy at Sony has made it clear. They have no plans for PlayStation 4 (PS4).
Speaking with Eurogamer, Shuhei Yoshida who is an acting President of SCE Worldwide Studios claims that the technology in the PS3 is not yet obselete. At least for quite some time.
“Looking at the platform cycle, when the platform becomes something game developers are not able to improve their creations with, that’s the time we have to really seriously consider shifting to the next generation,” Yoshida told the website. “As far as we are concerned, we have no desire now to do that [release a new home console],”
“Gamers always need something new and more exciting. If they’re seeing just similar types of games coming year after year, they will quickly lose their interest,” claimed Yoshida. “Looking like that, when you see games coming out on PS3, both the traditional type of games as well as new kind of games using PS Move, there is a lot more we can do from the game development standpoint.”
“So as long as we and our developers can create new experiences that are more exciting to consumers, I see no need to transition into newer generation.”
