The successor to the PlayStation 3 may not be released until after the Microsoft’s Xbox 720 hits store shelves, Sony overlord Kazuo Hirai has hinted.
Speaking during an interview with The Times in regards to console release windows, the executive said, “why go first when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better?”
Reports on the timing of PlayStation 4’s release have been a mixed bag, with some claiming it won’t be released until early 2014, while others suggest a late 2013 launch. Xbox 720 is believed to hit stores this year, however.
Both consoles have yet to be announced by their respective platform holders, though it is widely believed we’ll hear something by the time E3 comes knocking. In fact, PS4 is rumored to be getting a formal unveiling in just a matter of weeks.
It has also been reported that Sony plans on ditching its iconic DualShock design for the PS4's controller.
Stay tuned to PSU.com for more information.

cant help but thinking that Kaz is a smart guy.
dont think it would be easy to change specs that late in the game.
but there are some thing that could be possible change at the last minute..
anyway i'm sure sonys device will be much more aimed at core audience.
while ms will try to include most of windows 8 on it. LOL
8gb ddr3 with 3gb reserved for system and of the 8cpu cores they want to reserve 2 for system?? that should tell you enough.
sony only whats to reserve 512mb of the 4gb ddr5.
yup that soulds like a much better system to me.
no supper bloated tile based os for me..

I don't mind playing the waiting game. But I would appreciate it if they kept the good ol' dualshock design. It fits so perfectly in my hands!

This is great, I don't like the idea of Sony being first out the door. I like us being the ones with the newest console on the market. Tease then next Xbox out, then once Microsoft releases their next machine, blowing out the water with the superior PlayStation.
On an unrelated note, it's brilliant to see steviej around. His comments are rather quite comical and really make my day.
