Console War: “PlayStation 4″ In Stores 2012
Like cars, a new model pops out every five years or so. It’s about time consumers are sucked into the brand once again. So, rumor has it PlayStation 4 will be due sometime next year in 2012.
Hopefully, it’s not a race to combat in the console war, but more so to provide a solid finished product. Bear in mind, Sony has revealed the new PlayStation 3D HDTV (pretty much an iMac for Sony gaming) and PlayStation Vita (replacement for PSP) last month at the E3 Expo. I’m skeptical but hopeful they can pull off three huge projects all at once.
Sony has been working on a PlayStation 4 to capitalize on the wave of technology when 3D television became available to the public. I’m not saying it’s geared towards 3D gaming, but I can’t find a reason why it wouldn’t. It’s a promising strategy and I’ve seen the possibilities at Sony’s Killzone 3 demo at E3 2011. It had full PlayStation Move and 3D capabilities that put PlayStation 1 up over Xbox 360 & Wii.
PS Move is a bit behind Microsoft’s Kinect motion sensor technology, however it doesn’t mean Sony sucks. Eye Toy + PS Move are small stepping stones to greatness. I’m excited to see what PS4 has in store for us—3D capabilities and improved Kinect-style motion control (fingers crossed for Sony’s sake).
Unlike celebrity rumors, now we just wait for the actual release date and reviews.
