It’s been a long time since Sony has come out with a new gaming console but the time has finally arrived, it is rumored that a successor is going to be named for the Playstation 3 on the 20th of this month.
The Wall Street Journal says, according to a source close to this matter, that Playstation is going to start selling the next generation console later this year, in hopes to compete with Microsoft’s next console, that is also rumored to arrive by Christmas this year. Looks like we are going to have a good old-fashioned, and somewhat renewed, console wars on our hands this year ladies and gentlemen.
The rumors about the next Playstation console have really picked up speed ever since Sony announced that it will stop making its iconic Playstation 2 console.
Sony is definitely going to have to release a new console this year after it’s rumored that Microsoft is going to launch its next gaming console to succeed the Xbox 360 and that Nintendo has already come out with its new gaming experience in the Wii U system.
Playstation is going to really have to put together something spectacular to keep up with Microsoft and the increasing popularity with the Xbox 360. Rumor has it that the Playstation 4 is going to be more centered around social gaming, in what I think is Sony’s effort to compete with the all-in-one device that is becoming the Xbox brand.
