    Sony says PS4 will offer "significant" enhancements

    Sony is unequivocal in its assertions that the PS3 is still the best console that it can make.

    Frankly, it's kind of hard to figure out what to make of the state of the gaming industry right now.

    PS4 will offer "significant" enhancementsFor the first time ever, we have 5- to 6-year-old consoles that are still chugging along. So, from Sony's perspective, what point is there to revealing a PS4? What could it do that the PS3 can't? If the answer is "not much," then there's no reason to unveil new hardware.

    Long-time Playstation veteran and current head of the division Andrew House was quoted in a recent MCV interview as saying:

    "The right time to talk about new advances in hardware is when you can demonstrate a significant leap on the current experience, and something that is going to be attractive. That remains our philosophy. Beyond that we have nothing to say at this point."

    This is of course uncharted territory for the console gaming market. Never before has a console lived on for more than five years with virtually no one wondering when the next one would come.
    The Xbox 360 is admittedly starting to show its age and there have been far more many rumors about its successor than there have been for the PS4. Don't expect a Sony announcement in this realm any time soon.

    Meanwhile, it is widely expected that Microsoft will be forced to announce the Xbox 720 at next year's E3 trade show

    Hopefully one of these enhancements is better WiFi, wireless-n seems a must. I know it's something small and many see it as pointless (since if you're gonna game online you should go wired) but it's one of the thing that annoys me most. My neighbors can receive our wireless signal perfectly but our PS3 can barely stay connected to it with two interior walls between them. I'd rather have to buy an external wireless receiver such as the wireless-n adapter for the 360.

    I had to question the last part of that quote though. Microsoft "forced to announce"? Honestly I think their console could last as long as the PS3, mainly because it's been third party games that have been dominating the scene and those end up being better on the 360, or at least more popular. I think MS will be fine being the earlier console again and becoming and staying the lead platform to develop next-gen games on (sorry, I don't believe in the Wii-U).

    Both consoles are pretty much equal and will be here for years to come. PS4 will be here when Sonys suits are ready to release it. It's all about money and timing not game experiences.

    No doubt it will offer some enhancements. Probably won't be seeing it until late 2014 or 2015 though. That's my guess.

    I wouldn't mind. PS3 is still acting as if it were early gen, not the end, dishing out content left right and center. They don't really care about being first out or ahead in sales, but being the best.

    Maybe the content but not the hardware. The content can continue forever but the games will still most likely look and play the same.

    Its about giving giving devs better hardware to work with. Even though we still are getting great games devs are still are very limited on what they can achieve with the old hardware. Graphics and AI are ok now but next gen should be a significant improvement to both.

    Oh really now? The ps4 will have "significant enhancements" ? I didn't expect that!

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I don't agree in that they are pretty much equal, but I agree that it's all about the money.
    IMO Sony won't risk entering late into the race again, that was a fatal mistake this gen so even though they'll continue to release good games for the PS3 I'm willing to bet they'll announce the PS4 next year along with MS's Xbox720

    Read this interview, I'm sure he said that they ain't revealing a new console until the technology is significantly better then PS3, So at the moment they ain't got anything.
    Its like Chinese whispers & captain obvious combined as one this article is lol

    Hardware wise, it should logically have better hardware, and hopefully improved controller, perhaps one that has at least one more button used for taking screen shots/video recording.
    Software wise, it should have the party/cross game chat just like PS Vita.

    Other than that, I can't really think of anything else more specific that they should improve.

    Since Sony likes to announce stuff two years before release, I would be very surprised if they announce PS4 at E3 in 2013 and launch it in the same year. I just can't see that happening.
    Not a chance, no matter how wrong I want to be.

    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    So what did E3 show again? ~3~ games which were show stoppers, where as E3 last year or 2 years, had all of us feeling like 'PS3 WOOWZAA!' It was games galore. This E3 had me and many others feeling like, Were at a standstill.' And in my opinion one that marks a need to move on, new consoles, the sooner the better, an I've yet to be convinced that the PS3 really has that much life left. My 360 however I've felt like it's on borrowed time for the past year, and kinect and smartglass don't help.

    I'm sorry, but a gen 7.5 wouldn't bother me in the least bit, let alone the next gen in full swing.

    Take your time Sony. Like Sony says, the generation doesn't start until they say it starts. Much like Nintendo, Sony beats to their own drum.

    It's not about being first, it's about being the best and Sony has been the best since their arrival in 1994. That's not changing.

    Strange after Sony said they will be the next Xbox on the market now there saying we will wait and see. By doing this it will further put Sony behind. no e3 showing next year points to a 2014-2015 release.

    uuummmmm...Fried Beer iis a reality.

    No
    The last few E3 has had people wondering what devs are $#@!ing doing, complete lack of new stuff and have people asking whats the point of E3 cuz nobody announces $#@! like they use to
    This E3 has been almost a breath of fresh air, minus Usher
    There was new games are coming in left right and center with 2 games people think maybe nextgen, thou they are more nextgen 0.5
    So I don't know what world you have been living on but the industry looks more alive then it has since 2004
    And if ya not convinced that PS3 has more life in it after the quantum leap from Heavy Rain to Beyond, then ya just ignorant and you are gonna be disappointed for a bit of while.

    I personally think they will have it out in 2013. Sony's number one goal is to be in first place with the best sales and make tons of profit.

    I'm glad Sony is thinking this way about their upcoming console, I just hope they truly deliver and give us a powerful machine that just like they say make us feel like it's significant.

    I am wanting better performance then what the PS3 has and what it started with. in fact, they need to up the bandwidth limits when the PS4 comes out = more players and things on the field of battle. Battlefield for example with all the destruction and stuff takes up all the bandwidth so they can't have 64 players on a big battlefield, this right here ruins the experience and that is 100% Sonys fault. no reason anymore for such strict and ridiculous bandwidth limitations.

    No. The fatal issue was that they priced the console out of the main stream market. Now..of course I don't blame them...people were spending $400 on iphones and pads and crap no reason they wouldn't spend $600 on a state of the art console that played blu-ray movies and do so much more but then the financial collapse and suddenly they have a console thats games look all the same as their competitors (first party excluded) and a couple hundred dollars more and they just couldn't make up the difference in a years launch time. That price slowed their growth (even though they have slowly cut into the lead every year). They can overcome launching second...they just can't overcome a huge difference in price and little to no difference in perceived graphics or content.

    Jack Tretton said something quite different in an E3 interview with Geoff. From 5:25:

    "You look back again on history, we've never been first, we've never been cheapest, it's about being the best. I think if you can build a better machine and it's gonna come out a little bit later, that's better than rushing something to market that's gonna run out of gas for the long term. I think ideally in a perfect world you want the best machine that ships first that's cheapest, but you know, the number 1 goal is to be the best machine and that's what we're focused on."


    Their philosophy pays off. Sony are still coming out with jaw dropping, bar raising games even now at the doorstep of gen 8. No other console maker is doing what Sony are with the PS3 now and that's a fact that demonstrates the power behind their strategy.

    Jack wouldn't say anything else. Sony wants sales, profits, revenue and first place, first and foremost. Other console makers match them in the games department as well. So Sony will indeed looking to bring themselves back up.
