Sony: Microsoft or Nintendo Will Kick Off Eighth Console Generation
Talk is starting up again about Sony’s next home console, but according to Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida, they likely won’t be the ones to kick the next generation off.
Speaking to Develop, Yoshida said he believes either Nintendo or Microsoft will release their next generation consoles first.
â€œLooking from the outside, it was Microsoft that released the first of this generation of consoles. Naturally, in my opinion, Microsoft will make the first move.â€œOr, because Nintendoâ€™s approach was not to upgrade much on its basic hardware â€“ Wii doesnâ€™t even support HD resolution â€“ so they might be the first to move.â€œProbably the watch should be on these companies, in my opinion. Because PS3 was later than Xbox, and is more powerful, so it has a longer lifespan.â€
“Because PS3 was later than Xbox, and is more powerful, so it has a longer lifespan.” I can honestly say i agree with Yoshida, I think the PS3 is going to have many more strong years. What do you guys think? Who’s gonna step into the next generation first? Nintendo? Microsoft? Or will Sony surprise?
