[VR-Zone] Sony will be last to announce next-gen console

Sony will probably be last to announce its next-generation console, according to the leader of its French gaming division, a possibility that won't sit well with gamers or investors.

Philippe Cardone, CEO of PlayStation France, told Le Point that it is in no rush to give details about its next console, suggesting that it is nowhere near a point where a prototype can be developed and shown off at events, like the popular E3 event this Summer.

Sony claims there is no pressure, but since its PlayStation 3 trails behind in third place after the Wii and Xbox 360, the company should probably reconsider whether or not such a laidback approach is a good idea.

I'm okay with this. But 2016 seems too far, I'd like a 2013/2014 release.

My 12 year old son is already saving for the PS4. If he has to wait this long, he won't be happy, and will likely end up spending his money on something else.

Wonder what I could convince him to buy at GameStop with all his gift cards in the mean time??

And you're sure of that how? M$ is making a killing on the 360 ecosystem. There's no need to bleed money with next gen hardware right now.

Knowing Sony, start of 2014 or as late as summer of that year, they won't let Microsoft get so far ahead.

I would actually hope to see the console launch 3rd. Last gen--can't believe I am already saying that--was full of issues and many people felt that the PS3 was too much money for what it offered. Looking back it was actually a good deal for $500, blu-ray player and no online fee...makes my life a lot easier. Hope to see the same kind of support from sony with the PS4...and native 4k support wouldn't be a bad idea.
I think that the release won't be summer 2013, but 4th quarter of 2013. We'll see, I hope that Nvidia graphics are used still.

Well the PS3 is the only console really that I am considering buying. PC gaming is going strong so genitalia.

Sony is always late to the party in the console wars. That's just how they do.
