When is the right time for Sony to release its PlayStation 4?

Recent reports suggested that will be releasing its next-gen PS console, the , as early as 2012. In relation to this, a SlashGear article by Don Reisinger is pushing that the company must unveil the PS4 as soon as possible. This is due to the reaction of fans with regards to the new console, and the fact that PS3 is not doing well in the US. Moreover, the PlayStation Move was not able to caught the gamer’s fancy the way did.

Furthermore, if Sony will bring out the PlayStation 4, it will divert all the talks about the company’s recent troubles with its . If they could also time the unveiling of the new PlayStation console with ’s release, it may preempt gamers from switching to the upcoming handheld gaming device. Sony must also have to worry about Microsoft’s plan. However, there are a lot of PlayStation 3 owners who may have only signed up recently. So seeing that a new console is coming won’t please them — big time!

Hence, it may be ideal for Sony to release its next year and be the first on the line. But they could also wait for their competitors’ next move before showing their hand. Would you like to see the PlayStation 4 hit the shelves next year? Let your opinions be heard at the comments.

    Bullshit. Console giants need to stop competing and releasing things as fast as they can. Jesus, it hardly gives gamers ANY time to play and enjoy existing console games without forcing them to frantically switch to the next best thing and blow even more money. Srsly, gaming is expensive if you don’t have a job. t_t

    Consoles need to concentrate on the gamer, not other consoles.

    All the consoles right now are fine.  We gamers can wait a couple years for the next gen console, because we don’t think it will add much.

    PS4 now would be like Microsoft screwing 1st gen xbox owners with the 360.

    Just chill yer jets, console giants.  It’s already been shown that better artificial faces get more and more creepy and disconcerting.  Maybe work on some real science in the meantime. Add that to the fact that gamers give zero shits about realistic faces and you end up with a big case of STFU and just provide the value we’re supposed to be paying for.

    Assholes.

    i dont think playstation would release before an xbox i think their brand has a lot of loyalty because xbox 360 had its entire life (as in:launch until no new games) after ps2 and before ps3 and they were still making games for the ps2 as recently as the force unleashed 2. so even if the do release in 2012 we’ll still have new games to play until the first price drop in 2014, when the few good early games are cheap and the real good ones are just starting to come out

    also i dont know if the kinect hit the gamers fancy os much as you make it seem… mostly stumbled on a bunch of complaints that there are no buttons( that is more than i heard about the move, though). not to mention the were giving away kinect’s with everything if we all remember the ads. i think subway and some brand of chips and/or soda. i think kinect its such a cooler thing outside of games (robots and such) than it ever can be as a game tool

    Well at least I know not to trust this site for anything game related as this has been debunked over and over by Sony and Microsoft who have both stated that they made their consoles to last 10 years both have stated that if they did release sooner the earliest would be 2014. In other words the rumors that this article is based on are complete and utter lies.
