Sony: PS4 to Arrive with Next-Gen Consoles from Competitors

125w ago - Contrary to previous reports, PlayStation Europe CEO Jim Ryan recently stated to Eurogamer that PS4 will probably arrive at the same time as Next-Gen XBox and Nintendo consoles.

To quote: "I think we would consider it undesirable to be significantly later than the competition [with the next PlayStation]."

He also noted, however, that there is still a lot of life left in the PS3 and explained:

"If you look at PlayStation 2, now in excess of 150m units installed globally, a huge majority of that was done at price points of £120 or lower.

We've only just hit £199 in the UK [with the PS3] so clearly there's a considerable untapped part of the market there."

Is anyone ready for a potential PS4 release as early as 2012?

Yeah we might get a reveal but there is no chance of a successor to either the 360 or PS3 making it to retail (Actually launching) before 2013.

There is no chance of seeing an xbox or playstation launch in 2012, It would have already been factored into their financial projections for the year. Might get a reveal but there is no possibility of a launch.

I still think 2012 will be too early for a PS4 launch though, especially with Sony launching PS Vita then in the US and Europe they will have their hands full I imagine. Up to now, I always anticipated the PlayStation 4 will arrive no sooner than 2014 (if not later) but we'll see heh! Developers have been struggling for so many years to get games working with the PS3's (and 360's) limited resources that I honestly would have thought the 5 year mark would have been when they would release a new console. At this rate it would be foolish to push it back any further than Q4 2012 if they have the capability to do a proper launch. Considering that they practically breathe money, I don't think it's so far fetched to think they can do it if they want.

A better example is a ps4 with games using hollywood movie-like graphic. This, maybe, could make me buy it. If it's a spit more than a ps3, i'm quite done with a new cheaper xbox new gen
