Every few years or so our current Video Game systems reach their end. In this case, Play Station 3 is approaching it’s life cycle within the next couple of years. Sony is already announcing and planning the release of it’s next generation console.
This “rumor” has been circulating around the blogsphere for some time so it feels good to actually have the official news from a Sony Rep .
On a Recent earnings call, Sony CFO Masaru Kato said,
For the home equipment the PS3 still has a product life, but this is a platform business, so for the future platform – when we’ll be introducing what product I cannot discuss that – but our development work is already under way, so the costs are incurred there.
Sony had a multi-billion dollar loss with the whole security breach earlier in the month so it’s hard to see how they are going to pull this off but I’m sure they have something up their sleeves, Sony is one of those companies that is to big to fail.
