Sony boss would be “very distracted” by PS4 announce

Friday, 17th February 2012 04:28 GMT By Brenna Hillier

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.”

    Im pretty sure Jack already know when the new generation PS4 comes out, but he’s not allowed to tell the world yet… it will cost his neck, if he do…

    Early 2013 announcement for a late 2013 launch I’d say.

    “PS3 is just hitting it’s stride.”

    When it’s not going to hit it’s stride? In 2050? :D
