Sony: Next PlayStation is at least three years off

Yesterday, when Sony told Japanese investors that the PS4 is “entering the end of its lifecycle” (as translated by The Wall Street Journal‘s Takashi Mochizuki), we held off on repeating the news until we got clarification on what exactly that meant. Today, Mochizuki reports in WSJ that it means the PS4 has at least three more years of uncontested focus from Sony’s console business.

“We will use the next three years to prepare the next step, to crouch down so that we can jump higher in the future,” Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Tsuyoshi Kodera told the Journal.
