The next-gen rumours may continue to roll by on a twice-daily basis, but it’s clear that Sony and Microsoft are still keeping their cards very close to their chests. Well, the cards that haven’t been leaked, speculated on and wrangled from the cold dead hands of some NDA-flaunting developer, that is.
Regardless, it looks like Sony aren’t thinking about talking about the PS4 yet. Not until Microsoft do, it seems, at least.
“Why go first, when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better?” said SCE boss Kaz Hirai in today’s The Times newspaper. That’s clearly a direct nod to Microsoft (being that Nintendo have already played their slightly tired looking cards) and suggests that he’s ready to go, but holding back.
Poised like a slightly predictable two-way Mexican standoff, the next-gen war might be kicking off right around the corner but today, right now, it’s more a case of two companies still eyeing up the other.
Who will strike first? Microsoft, clearly. Kaz says so.
