Do You Really Want PS4 Next Year?
Senseless rumours on the internet (we know, we know) are suggesting we might get a new PlayStation next year. Would we actually want it?
If you trust the internet (and you definitely shouldn’t, just like that man with the sweets you see when you’re alone) then we’ll be basking in the glory of a new PlayStation console by the end of next year.
We’re not talking about some new PS3 Slim-style revision here either: full-blown sequel is the talk of the town, complete with (presumably) outrageous specs and the sort of power that would make CyberDyne blush.
But do you really want a PS4? We certainly don’t. Think about it. Ps3 is just hitting its stride. Games like Uncharted 3 look absolutely incredible and Sony is rumoured to be dropping the price below the £199, which is going to see an amazing boost in console sales.
Sure, third-party releases could look better, and yes Sony has been more arrogant this gen than Cristiano Ronaldo and The Rock rolled into one horrible package. But think: would a new PlayStation next year really offer the generational leap we expect, nay demand from our console releases?
We think not. Roll on the next few years of PS3. The best is yet to come, but if you disagree let us know and we’ll set Ian on you…
