When asked by a reporter about a new console, Kaz Hirai said this:

“Andy (House) is absolutely right in that we are not making any announcements at E3,” Hirai said. “I’ve always said a 10-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that.”

I guess this should dispell quite a few of those new console rumors, now won't it?

Oh yeah and, yep. I never even thought that they were planning on revealing a new console yet, I don't get what's up with the rumors.

With as many people who I saw buy a PS3 this Christmas... Yeah, I don't think it is necessary to unveil a PS4 at this time.

That settles that then.
Now we don't have to care what Sony does this E3 because Nintendo is gonna rock us like a hurricane.

speculation that Sony or Microsoft may be leaving the console game.

I'd have to agree. I don't know Sony can compete with Microsoft and nintendo. both those companies are young with different stragties and Sony is ill equipped to combat any of them 1 on 1

You mean we'll see the day where gaming isn't being held back by outdated console technology? Finally.

Wow Sony dropping out of the console business and perhaps joining Gaikai? That would be interesting to a certain degree. I hope not but if it's what has to happen then, yay for Sony.

Just for you.

I didn't think they would...

But will Microsoft reveal a new console? I highly doubt it, they could easily just keep re-inventing the 360 with new hardware and what not, like what they do with their computer software.

I still think that Nintendo will own this E3 though, new games to announce along with Wii U, just don't be as awful as last years E3 please... facepalm in disgust

if i had to guess which company would quit consoles it would be microsoft. they've had a lot of problems with high system failure rates and their biggest strength has always been their online service rather than their hardware anyway. sony is a gadget oriented company and they've been marketing their consoles as all in one entertainment devices, which is harder to do without a physical system. it's much easier to imagine the computer company that keeps stumbling over its own feet in the video game business to move to internet based gaming than the electronics giant that's had huge success with video game systems over the past 18 years.

Nintendo needed an upgrade to their hardware. Sony and Microsoft are doing just fine with what they have.
I mean how much better can the graphics honestly get?
At this point I don't think the size of your gun counts anymore.

I would think Sony would leave the gaming area to be honest. No offence to those Sony fans, but Sony have been riding on other people's successes for years. All you have to do is look at the Playstation Move, it's a Wii Remote with a ball, how imaginative... roll eyes

Not to mention that their PSP Go was a flop. The PSP was outsold by the DS. Along with the Wii and Xbox continuing to outsell the PS3. No matter what, their sales have always been lower than the competition.

He means that they have; High failure rates in the monitors, Bravia's catching fire, PSN hack 4 (?) times, Skyrim and more games eperiencing massive glitches, the list goes on. Microsoft on the other hand, is strong and I believe they will not make 720, because they added so much more to Kinect and it's too late to give it up. They had record sales for 360, AAA and AA titles on the way and massive updates, it's way too soon for 720.

The original Assasin's Creed fried my brother PS3 twice back in 2007. Also PSN was hacked back then, too. So a lot these issues have been going on for quite some time.

The only reason why the current consoles are getting by is that they render in low resolution (some cases, much lower than 720p) and use low field of views. And they still can't keep up to 60 fps in some cases. The hardware only supports dx 9 and can only use low resolution textures due to low ram and vram.
