With Nintendo already having announced its current-generation follow-up in the WiiU, speculation abounds as to when Microsoft and Sony will follow suit. Early last month, rumors surfaced that Sony intends to launch the PlayStation 4 in early 2013. However, a new report from Develop indicates Sony may be just beginning to allocate software development resources to the new platform.


If Develop's sources are right, the PS3 will remain Sony's current-gen console for a while yet.
According to Develop, sources within Sony's internal studio structure have confirmed that first-party teams have begun "preliminary work" on PS4 games. The projects are reportedly in an early stage of development, with Develop's sources indicating that several teams could enter full production immediately, pending approval by Sony.

The report did not indicate which of Sony's 16 internal studios have teams working on PS4 game development. The SCE Worldwide Studios label houses such development outfits as Sony Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, Zipper Interactive, Guerrilla Games, Evolution Studios, and Polyphony Digital.

Sony had not responded to a request for comment as of press time.

Since the time of its launch, Sony has maintained that its current-generation PS3 will have a 10-year lifespan. That console launched in late 2006, and Sony refreshed the platform in 2010 with the release of the motion-sensor controller Move

I have a friend that refuses to buy a PS3 because he thinks they'll release PS4 soon. I keep telling him PS3 is here to stay for a few more years...but he's hard to convince. Where did you find this information? I'd like to see the source and show it to my friend.

Even after reading this article on the PS4, I still doubt this is true.

I seriously doubt they'll take that long to release something they just announced a few months ago. It'll most likely come out around the same time as the Wii U.

Anyways if there's anything I've learned from the past couple of generations is that its usually not a good idea to buy a new console on launch. I remember I decided to buy a PS3 on the same year it came out and when I had it there was barely any games that caught my interest. Same thing happened with the PS2 actually. It kind of takes a little while for developers to put out some AAA titles on a new console they're unfamiliar with. I have no idea if I'll invest on PS4, I mean I have invested in PS1-3 so naturally the obvious choice for me would be to just stick with Sony a 4th time in a row.

However there's a few things I'm worried about such as what is going to be the launch price for this thing? I remember when PS3 came out it was the most expensive of the 3 consoles. It sold for a whopping $600 and because of that ridiculous price it became the least successful in terms of sells. I'm guessing the PS4 will try and do everything in its power to trump the PS3 in every way. So realistically wouldn't Sony feel the need to charge even more money? I can see it now, stacks of PS4 boxes collecting dust at Toys R' Us and Gamestop because of the $800 price tag. Sure it'll probably be the most badass system ever, maybe even a breakthrough for home entertainment consoles. But you know what that fancy Blu-Ray Neo shit is not gonna matter if nobody is going to buy it.

Hey maybe I'm just over thinking it. Maybe I shouldn't judge till I see it. But considering the circumstances I'm just saying it could be a possibility so I don't want to dismiss it. Oh well I say we have about 2 years at max to enjoy our current consoles so I guess I should relax.

Around the time God of War III came out was when I bought my PS3, which was roughly two years ago? Won't be one who will fall to the launch tricks but it wouldn't be wise for Sony to do this. I say just do what you did with the PS2, it competed with the 360 for some time before jumping to the next gen. Give us users who barely bought the product some time to enjoy and cherish it. Your the only guys we can get games from so why continue to ram us on the wall? Is the world that money hungry nowadays?

If I had to guess I'd say the 8th Generation of video game consoles will probably kick off sometime in 2013. That's still about 2 years for us to enjoy our current consoles. Just because they're discussing about it now doesn't mean is gonna come right around the corner. And the shift from PS3-4 actually is about the same time gap between PS2-3. The console has been out since 2006 and PS2 was released in 2000. That's 6 years apart from each other. Its late 2011 now so that means the PS3 is officially 5 years old now. They're not really ramming us in to anything.

Although I can agree that Sony can be money grubbing. That's why I brought up the subject of the launch price earlier. Still until we actually see anything we should probably just chill and hope for the best. We still got plenty of time before anything is out yet and enough time to think it over. I mean I still remember when our current consoles were announced for development they didn't come out overnight.

Other than that it should be a matter of time before Microsoft announces their next big project as well. U know that's gonna happen eventually.

I'd wish I were already a developer, I would be in school for VG Design now if it weren't for my government running out of money for funding. I was hoping to start my career developing games for next gem consoles. Showcasing a new console is a great way to get your name off the ground.
