Sony: The Wii U is so 2006
President of Sony computer Entertainment America, Jack Tretton seemed pretty unaffected by the Wii U.
When asked about PlayStation 4 he said that Nintendo’s new system has not made them hurry up with their next console.
I didn’t see anything about Nintendo’s announcement that said ‘Oh, we’d better get working on rolling out a new PlayStation here pretty soon. Our attitude is kind of ‘welcome to the party.’ If you’re looking at being a multimedia entertainment device, if you’re looking at high def gaming, that was 2006 for us.
He also went on to say that the PlayStation 3 is pretty much future proof and still has a lot of years left in it yet.
What we’ve seen from the competition is trying to add features that already exist in PlayStation 3. We invested heavily in that, we rolled a very heavy rock up a steep hill, through the launch period. But now I think that all pays off, and we’ve got a long run way behind it. So, I wouldn’t look for any discussion of a next generation PlayStation for quite some time.
