Since Nintendo revealed the Wii U at last year’s E3, there has been talk about next generation video game consoles. Gamers have been debating what the PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 will be like. Microsoft and Sony have been so quiet about their next game consoles that you have to wonder whether they’re even working on any at all. It appears that some information about the PlayStation 4 has been leaked online, however.
Thanks to some crafty investigators over at VideoGamer.com, the existence of the next PlayStation has been found on an ex-Sony employee’s LinkedIn page. The former employee claims that worked on the graphics library and security for the next generation PlayStation from August 2010 to April 2012. He also claims to have worked on previous PlayStation consoles as well.
All though I’m excited about the Wii U, I could care less about the next Xbox or PlayStation. As far as I’m concerned, the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 still have some life left in them. Unlike Nintendo’s new console, I don’t think Sony’s or Microsoft’s new consoles would offer anything new other than “better graphics” and maybe better online features.
Of course, some people don’t care about the Wii U either. Nintendo is just now catching up with Sony and Microsoft when it comes to graphic and online technology. They’re a little late to the party, don’t you think? A lot of gamers are also concerned with the costs of new consoles; especially with the state the economy is in now. Remember how the PlayStation 3 cost $600 when it launched?
How many are you excited about the next generation consoles? How many are you satisfied with the consoles you currently own?
