In an interview with Techradar Sony UK boss Fergal Gara has let slip some interesting information about the length of the PlayStation 4’s life-cycle.
Gara was asked whether the PS4 is in it for the long stretch, and he replied: "It’s probably a sign of the times and how much has changed in seven years, but I think the willingness and the appetite to pick up new technology fast has probably changed quite a bit."
Gara was quick to add that it’s very early days to be commenting on how long the PS4 will be around adding : "We’re going to have a much better feel for it once we’re a good few months in and we can see how the dynamics are emerging."
To muddy the waters even further, Gara finished the interview with this cryptic statement: ""What we do know is that the uptake [of the PS4] is going to be very sharp. Does that mean this is going to be a much bigger cycle? Maybe. Or it might mean that it’s just a bit more compressed into the first few years, that the latter years are a little softer."
