Yeah, it was only hypothetical, i haven't got insider knowledge.
It would just make sense thats all. We now a PS3 Slim/Slim is around the corner, potentially a new 360 could be as well.
The over lap thing i understand but at the moment, Sony has only just started breaking even on the PS3, for them another few years wouldn't hurt...
I expect an announcement this E3, but not launch till 2014.
Gameswise, the end of this year & next year is pretty strong for both the 360 and PS3. Seems a waste if they don't try and drag it out that little bit more.
If games like MGS 5 are on this gen, it would seem likely no new console launch will happen next year.
For me, the fact that Wii U will be the most powerful of the 3 machines (just), but the cost of making games will be on par with the 360/720. I can see a lot of developers (especially niche jap studios) favouring it over the 720 / PS4 which is going to cost an absolute shit ton to make a triple AAA game on them.
From that perspective, i hope to see lots of amazing RPG's, lots of retro games making a comeback and potentially amazing art styles being developed.
To me it's the Dreamcast 2 in all but name, just without Sega's shitty marketting teams behind it.
Once Pokemon and Monster Hunter start printing money for Nintendo, im sure we'll see lots more stuff like Bayonetta 2, Vanquish 2 etc...
I think it'll become a great console while the 720 and PS4 fight over new versions of COD and similar stuff we've had on the 360/PS3 with better graphics.
I know, people are really nit picking when it comes to things like that.
Everyone always states it as a plus point being able to upgrade the PS3 harddrive, now suddenly it's a negative?!
Who hasn't got a portable drive kicking around these days?
Seems like people are trying to pick holes in every area. Unless Nintendo only let there own overpriced HD's be used on Wii U, whats there to complain about?!
