“We have no intention of immediately shifting from the PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4,” says Sony Japan president Hiroshi Kawano.
Speaking with Famitsu, Kawano said, “It’s been seven years since the release of the PS3 and the console continues to sell at a constant pace, plus we have many upcoming titles. We have no intention of immediately shifting from the PS3 to the PS4.”
With the 2014 launch of our cloud service in the US allowing users to play PS3 games on the PS4, some people may switch consoles from the PS3 to the PS4.
But that’ll be a gradual process, and to say ‘we’re releasing a new console, so trade in your old ones for it’ would be a maker’s ego talking, plain and simple.”
PS4 is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2013.
