Devs Working On ‘PS4’

It may be many years away but Sony have confirmed work is progressing on ‘future platform related activities’ – the next generation of PlayStation. When the PS3 was released many developers complained about difficulties programming the machine so, in a clever move, Sony have got their first party developers to help design the future PlayStation. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida explains:

“When Ken Kutaragi moved on and Kaz Harai became the president of SCE, the first thing Kaz said was, ‘get World Wide Studios in on hardware development’. So he wanted developers in meetings at the very beginning of concepting new hardware, and he demanded SCE people talk to us [developers].

“We are undergoing many activities that we haven’t yet been talking about in public. Some future platform related activities.”

  1. The problem being with Devs in charge they will never stop fiddling.
    Intel put Devs in charge instead of marketing and as a result, 6 different motherboards with different chipsets.
    Sony still need to hold them back for this to work.

  2. good news really? give people some time to get used to their ps3’s i know its been out for years bt still! ps2s still being sold! how long are they gonna do tht? forever?

  3. I have room under my tv [just] for the PS4.

    I think it will be amazing when it arrives…whenever that may be…

  4. That could work.I strongly recommend Cougara.c o m to you where I just found my wealthy boyfriend! You know it is a great place to meet wealthy men and beautiful women. Rihanna is looking for her true love on that site now!

    • Can someone please ban this dickhead?^

  5. Interestingly, most first party developers like Naughty Dog and Guerrilla have been openly advocating for Sony to keep the Cell architecture. Which makes sense; you can’t waste time reinventing the wheel forever.
