Sony to Shift Towards PS4 When Developers Finish with PS3

650°
158w ago - Today Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer.net (linked above) that they plan to shift to the next-generation PS4 console once developers can't get anything else out of the PlayStation 3 console.

As previously reported, the PlayStation 4 is also expected to launch after Microsoft's new XBox console currently slated for 2013.

To quote: "Sony will launch its next generation home console when developers are unable to improve the games they make, a senior executive at the company has said.

When that happens, Sony will have to "seriously consider" launching the PlayStation 4, worldwide studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer.

"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 said.

While Microsoft is rumored to be preparing to launch its new Xbox in 2013, we've heard little about Sony's next home console.

Sony has insisted its focus is on the PS3, which recently enjoyed a price cut, and the PS Vita, due out in Europe early next year.

158w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has shared some video footage from this year's Gamescom today showcasing Dante's vertical slice in Devil May Cry on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Last year, Capcom and Ninja Theory revealed their re-imagining of Devil May Cry (now known as "DmC" at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show.

The response to Dante's makeover and new look to the universe was split between adoration and outright confusion, with fans questioning the new look and fighting style of protagonist Dante.

Heading into Gamescom, I received word that Creative Director Tameem Antoniades wanted to discuss DmC's progress and indulge me in Dante's new found love for aerial combat. After being reunited with Tameem and Dante, I'm left crying for more.
