SCE America president and CEO Jack Tretton doesn’t want to make any new hardware announcements this year.

“I, quite frankly, would be very distracted if I had to be talking about next generation hardware this year,” Tretton told IGN.

The executive said the timing of new hardware announces depends on the health of existing platforms, and Sony is content in that regard.

“Right now, we’re focused on PlayStation 3, and I’ve got another platform to get out the door in seven days,” he said, referring to the Vita’s launch.

“So I don’t want to be thinking about trying to launch new technology anytime soon. I want to focus all our energy on our console business, which is really just hitting its stride, and Vita, which really deserves a dedicated push from us.”
