Sony isn't in a hurry to reveal the PS4


Seems like Microsoft isn't the only company unwilling to dish out the official scoop concerning the Next-Generation console. Sony will "probably be the last to announce something" said the CEO of Playstation France, Phillippe Cardone. He states that their situation is very different than its competitors.

Nintendo revealed their upcoming console, the Wii U, at E3 last year; allegedly, Sony said Nintendo were "pressed for time" due to the decline in Wii sales, forcing them to release a next-gen console. "As far as we're concerned, we're under a lot less pressure. We were the last to release the PS3. We will probably be the last to announce something.,” said Cardone, in an interview with La Pointe.

The past few weeks have served a plethora of information regarding next-gen consoles, including the specs of the 720 and the Wii U's release date. Recent rumours arose, that the Playstation 4 would be revealed at E3 this year, along with further details for the Wii U and the Xbox 720. It's been confirmed already that the Xbox 720 will not feature a 2012 release, and Sony have no desire of releasing any information regarding the Playstation 4, so the likelihood of an insight on the new consoles is slim.

Supposedly, Sony has stated that allowing Microsoft to get ahead of the game with the console "war" would be an undesirable position for them, howsoever this doesn't seem to be the case if what Cardone said was true.

The Playstation 4 E3 ordeal aligns with what Sony's Consumer Products Chief, Kaz Hirai, had to say. Hirai stated that there would be no Playstation 4 reveal at E3 this year, contrary to the rumours that have been surfacing. So I guess we can safely assume that the recent reports are valid. "I've always said a ten-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that," he said.
