What Will Happen With PlayStation 4 Next Generation?

Forums - Sony Discussion - What Will Happen With PlayStation 4 Next Generation?

Okay, Gran Turismo 6's confirmation has driven me to make this thread

1st and foremost PLEASE GOD LET GT6 BE FOR PS4!!!

Now it is quite obvious that Sony is known for releasing their Playstation platforms IN competition. What do i mean by this you ask? well the 5th generation was already being lead by the Sega Saturn before the PlayStation was brought to the market. The 6th Generation was already being lead by the Sega Dreamcast before the PlayStation 2 was brought to the market and the 7th Generation(present) was already being lead by the Xbox 360 before the PlayStation 3 was brought to the market. PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita included.

Now being that the successor to Nintendo's Nintendo Wii(Wii U) is well on it's way and is undoubtedly going to begin the 8th Generation of gaming next year in 2012, i am almost 100% positive that Sony is going to bring PlayStation 4 to the market right behind the Wii U in 2013 like we have seen in previous Generations. I also see Microsoft releasing the next Xbox in 2013. Yea that's right, i said it! I think the PlayStation 4 will release in the same year as the next Xbox NOT after it like some people think. I dont see Sony releasing the PlayStation 4 2 whole years after the Generation starts. *lifts shoulders*

now with Gran Turismo 6's confirmation i can see them aiming for a release within the 1st year of PlayStation 4's release

let's take a look at some well known games Sony was able to release within PlayStation 2's 1st year shall we? :)

Tekken Tag 10/18/2000

Ridge Racer V 10/18/2000

Twisted Metal Black 6/19/01

Gran Turismo 3 7/20/01 <-- MAJOR BLOCKBUSTER

Silent Hill 2 9/25/01

Grand Theft Auto 3 10/22/01 <-- MAJOR BLOCKBUSTER

^^^ PS2 had MANY MORE good games released in it's 1st year that i do not feel the need to include at the moment

now if GT6 was to be released in ps4's 1st year like GT3 was in ps2's 1st year then that would be a hell of a start for PlayStation 4 in the 8th generation

I honestly believe that PolyphonyDigital decided not to release GT5 sooner on PS3 because of that high A** price($600). That price kept A LOT of people away from the ps3 and it also gave PS3 the image that games wouldn't sell on the system.

When PSVita's price was announced i was kind of blown away by Sony matching Nintendo's 3DS price at the time. I expect to see something similar with the PlayStation 4 aswell. I dont see Sony making any Dumb decision's this time around with PS4 judging by the way they are handling the PSVita.

on the pricing side, i see all 3 home console's being the same this time around. let's say Wii U launches at $399, i see Microsoft matching the price with the next Xbox being $399 and with the way Sony has been lately i see them matching Wii U's price with PS4 being $399. Of course when PS4 announces the $399 price most likely Nintendo and Microsoft will drop their price's down to either $299 or $350 IMMEDIATELY lol

so i see the price's being close from the start this time around. Sony already said that they wont be making as big of an investment with PS4 as they did with PS3 so i can see them being competitive with their pricing next gen.

i am sort of looking forward to next gen now since GT6 has been confirmed to be in development ..just a little bit though..

thoughts?

yeh.. the PS4 is going to come in 2013.. because sony want to spend another Billion releasing a system when the PS3 has incurred massive debts and is starting to make money..

PS4 won't come till 2014. sorry, but they won't be able to get stock holders on board with loosing such a massive sum releasing another system yet

LMAO i hope not

Sony has never been known to launch 2 whole years after a generation has started

i know that microsoft is the most direct competitor to sony but Nintendo is doing the same thing that Microsoft did by getting all the 3rd party games on their system

i hope they surprise everyone and release the PS4 in 2013

hmm.. im not sure if you're trying to be funny or not lol



yep i also say PS4 will come out 2014...not any sooner...and Wii-U is not the typical "next generation" console...its just like the PS3 & X360...the new Xbox will show what power the new generation will bring graphical & technical wise...alsp PS3 is now making money and does better than before and it will do even better next year and the year after that...Sony just would be stupid to rush with the PS4...

who said that they had to rush? Sony usually starts gearing up for their next console when a competitor bring's on the new Generation

Nintendo showed a bit of Wii U this year so if sony started ps4 production this year why would a finished product 2 years later be considered as rushed?

and how do you know for sure that microsoft will be the 1 that shows what power the next gen will bring? what if sony just so happens to be the most powerful if they release in 2013?

microsoft's launching 1st this gen means nothing! ps2 launched 1st(excluding dreamcast) last gen then microsft and nintendo followed AFTER but microsoft still launched it's next gen console before the others even though it didnt the previous gen

and even when ps4 arrives ps3 will continue to sell and profit, did you forget that the PlayStation brand itself has legs?



I will tell you when it gets here
