[EG]Sony "not even debating near-future PS4" - Page 7

post #61 of 149
I'm calling bull**** on this one. If Sony isn't working on the PS4 now, then there won't be one. Mark my words.

Which is good, cause our rigs will last for an insane amount of time!

Even after new consoles come, slap new GPU; OC Sandy Bridge to 5ghz, and voilá: Awesome gaming rig, even after 6 years it came out.

so it seems like sony will only release the PS4 because Microsoft will release the XBOX 720...
im fed up of sony because they are really wrong if they think the PS3 will last 10 years. It hasnt been a success since it came out (compared to XBOX 360 and the Wii) so how is it supposed to last 10 years? Im starting to think that my next console will be from Microsoft because they are the only company that is thinking about the future unlike sony

Doubt a new Xbox will be out anytime soon. M$ just refreshed the 360 and with all the updates they're giving it, it surely had a few more years.

I doubt the consoles themselves last ten years. I know I'll have to replace a part on mine any time now. And most of these being owned by children are likely to break even earlier. Another thing to think about is that most of the children who recieved these consoles when they came out will be adults by the next iteration (by age, not maturity).

If sony waits 10 years for another console they will lose the console wars for sure.
You are so wrong. Sales of the PS2 were still beating out the PS3 even a couple of years after the PS3 was released. Old consoles have long life because they are cheap. Not everyone can spend $600 on the latest and greatest, but most can sure spend $120 for a brand new previous-gen console with used $5 games to boot!

They are working on one. Heck, they probably started working on one before the PS3 was even released. They just aren't going to admit it, or people would be less inclined to buy a new PS3 today. Sony wants to ensure everyone who buys a PS3 still feels that they are getting a good value for their money. If people know there will be a new console coming out 3 years from now, then they might be less inclined to invest many hundreds of dollars into the current-gen console and games.

Keep in mind, very few of the consoles out there were actually purchased the first year of production. So many of the consoles only need to last 5 years, 7 years, 3 years, etc. I agree though, they aren't the most reliable machines. Though I can't really think of any console that was truly rock-solid, they all have issues of one sort or another. Maybe the Wii.

Near future. I'm sure they are probably receiving test hardware from a number of manufacturers, but haven't decided on a final spec.

We really don't need the PS4. The only thing Sony needs to do is make the console cheaper, quieter, and give it a faster BD-ROM.

They still have tons of room on disc for more content, and graphics aren't everything. It would actually be for the best if developers stopped caring about polygon count and started working on artistic merit.

I for one would rather have a well polished, mature game on a $300 console than a buggy, slow next gen game on a $600 console.

At first, I disagreed.

But as I read on, you're right.

I'd rather have quality games with decent graphics than the crap that's currently being released... (COD)

My working NES, SNES, Genesis, Saturn, n64 and dreamcast would like a word with you.

Meh.. I put less into my rig (at the beginning) and it could outplay my 600$ ps3 (which is now a media rig). Doubts on future console purchases...

I think this is smoke - they have to come out with something modern because manufacturers are probably not going to be making those obsolete parts, even in the near future.
