296w ago - According to a Fortune report, PlayStation boss Kaz Hirai that said the bigger PlayStation Network may debut next Spring.

Sony's CEO Howard Stringer has also dropped hints on the PlayStation Network expansion, which is said to include a broader service, leaping from the PSP and PlayStation 3 to Sony branded televisions and other gadgets.

To quote: The service is said to make Sony devices "talk to each other efficiently," according to Stringer, that it will make it easier to handle digital camera images, edit video, share content and store whatever it is you download from a Sony device.

Fortune also reports that Sony has designs on making acquisitions that would "accelerate the effort," but plans to "start small" and roll out the new PlayStation Network over time.
 

Analyst: Prepare for Sluggish Spring, No New Consoles Until 2013

304w ago - Compared to last Spring's outlandish software sales figures (fueled by the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and GTA IV), this year's stats aren't inspiring much confidence in gaming industry investors.

In fact, many are anxiously awaiting the launch of new hardware to provide a quick sales boost - but according to industry analyst Michael Pachter (linked above), they shouldn't hold their breath: By his estimation, new hardware won't be hitting store shelves until at least 2013.

Pachter said that publishers would be hesitant to adopt new hardware considering their investments in the current console cycle have yet to adequately pay off.

There is one exception though - Pachter expects the rumored high-definition Wii may appear some time in 2010.
