No Playstation 4 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this year!

On Monday, January 16, 2012 0 comments

Sony's head of videogaming division, Kaz Hirai confirms there will be no new platform at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. For years Kaz has stated that he expected the Playstation3 to have a 10-year lifecycle. The 10-year anniversary of the PS3 would be coming up in 2016. If that is the case, the PS4 would come to market a 2 to 3 years prior to allow for one platform to wind down while the newer gaming console builds up momentum.

This echoes statements from Sony Computer Entertainment's President Andrew House who has said earlier that there would be no new hardware platform at the June show. Andrew went so far as to say last December that Sony is "just entering into this great period for PS3".

Nintendo's New Wii U
It will be interesting so see how the coming years unfold with new platforms due from Sony's competitors. It is still unclear if Microsoft will show it's hand at E3 this year but we are certain that Nintendo's Wii U featuring a new "second screen" tablet-style controller will be front in center at the show.

What are you expecting will be Microsoft's or Sony's big features in their next-generation consoles?
