Source: Either Sony Or Microsoft Won't Have A Next-Gen Console
If true, this is huge news.
There have been a lot of rumors about the possibility of seeing both the new PlayStation and Xbox at E3 this year. Sony was quick to defuse the rumor, though, and now, a new source says - get ready - Sony or Microsoft won't be involved in the next-gen console race.
According to IndustryGamers, cloud gaming service Gaikai has said that "not all current console manufacturers" will be making another console for the new generation. Said chief product officer Nanea Reeves:
"Not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3."
Now, Nintendo has already revealed their horse for the next-gen race, the Wii U. That leaves only Sony and Microsoft, right? Neither company has officially confirmed a new platform but realistically speaking, if any manufacturer is reluctant to produce a new piece of hardware, it's Sony. They maintain that the PS3 is just hitting their stride, and they've recently gone on record saying they're not considering a new system right now.
It'll be interesting to see what happens in the new generation, won't it? Things are changing left and right these days...
