So once again, I wonder aloud- is it already time for the next gen (you’ll see more about that this weekend)? A rumor has been going around about the potential PS4 specs. Apparently, Sony has sent out some stuff to developers asking for feedback on a few specs that they have in mind.
When is Sony planning on launching this? 2011, by the looks of it. Wow.
It seems initially that Sony is abandoning the “bigger and better” mentality, instead opting for more of the Nintendo route, ie: developing at a lower cost. I guess gamers showed Sony that they need to think twice before charging them out the wazoo for a console- loyalty only stretches a few hundred dollars I suppose.
Anywho, the rumor says they could be sticking with Cell technology, and doubling the power of the current PS3 (much like the GameCube to the Wii) instead of huge-ifying it like they just did. I’m sure that right now, especially in these times, it’s more appealing to think of a lower cost console, what with the PS3 sitting in last place in sales and still boasting the most expensive one of the bunch.
Personally, this just irks me to hear this after all of Sony’s talk of a 10 year cycle, as opposed to 5 or 6. Can we get some more actual PS3 games before we start talking about PS4? Maybe?
What do you guys think about all this?
