November 26, 2011 // 11:00 pm - Contrary to previous reports, PlayStation Europe CEO Jim Ryan recently stated to Eurogamer that PS4 will probably arrive at the same time as Next-Gen XBox and Nintendo consoles.

To quote: "I think we would consider it undesirable to be significantly later than the competition [with the next PlayStation]."

He also noted, however, that there is still a lot of life left in the PS3 and explained:

"If you look at PlayStation 2, now in excess of 150m units installed globally, a huge majority of that was done at price points of £120 or lower.

We've only just hit £199 in the UK [with the PS3] so clearly there's a considerable untapped part of the market there."

Is anyone ready for a potential PS4 release as early as 2012?

I expect way better than 1080p and Metro 2033 from a PS4 or 60fps, or just 8x Antialiasing

Hi! My english is not so good so plz forgive me.

Lot of people say there isn't the right time to release the next gen consoles, but i think its about time. Think about Battlefield 3, Metro 2033 or lot of other directx11 games that require top high end giga ultra mega pc-s. It would be nice if those games could run in 1080p at 60fps. I mean not reaching 60fps in small areas with screen tear, but a constant 60fps with vsync 8xmsaa, 16AF, DirectX11 and 1080p even 3D. The current gen consoles can handle the games at 25-30 fps... (hardly).

That design above is freakin' cool compared to the current PS3 slim. Some how it reminds me of the PS2 slim. I think there will probably teasers regarding PS4 next year. But I'm sure it won't be released or announced soon.

Who cares? M$ (and Sony now) is tired of hacking. Kids wants new game. They will have them. Do they need a new tv? Hell, they will buy them. This is a consumistic society with idiots kids and retard parents who finance them. At least, piracy can save some money, billions just download games. Funny is thinking of this idiot kid whining new xobx / PS4, and a proper TV, and his parents will buy both, and original games too. Like if we was needing it, ps3 .xbox360 and 3d tv 1080p is not enough maybe. Pfff

yup, but one thing for sure that they both announce superiority in graphical enhancement,this is not just a battle between playstation and xbox but also between nvidia (using multi core, maybe) and amd (hexa core and dual gpu), i can't guess how good the graphic they've got but sadly it will need more advance television coz to play next gen console with full power is by using high tech tv and that cost a lot.

Saw this news yesterday in Wii-U's perspective, but was afraid to post it, as I though it was disscussed ages ago, I'm not quite following this PS4 stuff.

I think it's too early for next-gen consoles. I'm quite happy playing PS3 nd Wii games, as are many of you too. Previous sony consoles introduced a huge jump from it's predeccessors - PS1 (one of the first 3D console), PS2 & PS3 (huge jump in graphics and sound, internet play, processing powers etc). Not to say, that every next Sony console had new storage media - CDs, DVds, BDs.

What can PS4 possibly introduce? More processing power? Nope, not quite interested. New media? If it's only digital downloads, then it would also be a fail. Something shiny like touch screens and gyroscopes? Stop copying Nintendo. They have this market segment.

I can't really think of awesome new ideas for PS4, sorry Sony.

yes I think we will see the PS4 early in 2014 just few months after the lunch of the XBOX 3 from Microsoft

Nintendo Wii U will be the bigger loser without a real controller, without 3D, without HDD.. no BluRay... etc

I think, it's too early for this.

I cant even see what kind of improvement they were going to do on what PS3 or XboX360 cant do for now.

xbox have an issue with over heat especially in tropical region and they are too busy searching door to door for ilegal windows.
