Sony Suggests PS4 will Release After Xbox 720

Sony Suggests PS4 will Release After Xbox 720

Global chief executive of Sony, Kaz Hirai, is suggesting that the next Sony console will not release until Microsoft has put their next Xbox on sale.

In a recent interview with The Times, Hirai states: “why go first when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better?”.

While I understand that Sony, like every company, are maintaining a business and therefore are constantly on their toes when assessing the competition, this sounds like a somewhat paranoid and irrational statement. I doubt that Microsoft could alter the entire system that they’ve been working on in secret for so long whenever it suits them.

CVG states that a “senior source” suggests that Hirai’s opinion may not be necessarily shared with other executives within the company. It told them that giving Microsoft a head-start would be a “ridiculous” idea, considering their hold on the market when the Xbox 360 launched a year before the PlayStation 3.

Also, the PlayStation 4 is already rumoured to be more powerful that the Xbox 720, according to a recent report by VG247. If it is true that Sony’s upcoming console has a 50* power advantage over Microsoft’s, then this only serves to further ridicule Hirai’s claim.

In other next-gen news, it is rumoured that the Dual Shock controller may be abandoned for the PS4, and both the next Xbox and PS4 may be revealed in March according to a recent report.
