Sony's Studios "Not Preoccupied" With Next-Gen Projects
Although many assume the new PlayStation will hit some time next year, Sony says they continue to focus on their current console.
In speaking to CVG, SCEE CEO Jim Ryan cited a key theme of Sony's E3 press conference: New IPs, which of course could lead to franchises. Ryan added that such innovation is "indicative of a platform that's got a long way to go yet."
That much we definitely agree with. But perhaps even more interesting was Ryan's claim that currently, Sony's first-party teams are not "preoccupied with work on next-generation projects." That's a relatively difficult quote to interpret - are they not working on PS4 stuff at all? ...only sparingly? - but we get the gist. The bottom line is that the PS3 has plenty left to offer and Sony knows it.
And by now, so should everyone else.
