The PlayStation 4 isn’t replacing the PS3
We all know the PlayStation 4 is being released later this year and I and many other gamers like me are chomping at the bit to replace the aging PlayStation 3 next to my TV with a brand spanking PlayStation 4. But apparently that isn’t what Sony wants us to do.
Robert Fisser, General Manager of Sony Middle East, had the following to say
PS4, an addition to the PS family, like PSP and PS Vita, will offer a completely new gaming experience
It’s no surprise to find out that Sony are planning on supporting the PlayStation 3 for a long time to come seeing that the PlayStation 2 is still available in stores today which is a testament to the longevity of the PlayStation brand that Microsoft is a long way from matching at this time.
However to say the PlayStation 4 will offer a completely different gaming experience is pushing it a bit far I think.
Both the PlayStation 4 and Next Xbox will offer an incremental improvement over this generation in my mind.
The PS4 is confirmed to release in at least one territory this holiday season but I do expect Sony to push for a simultaneous worldwide release.
