    Speaking to Forbes, Tretton explained why Sony is in no rush to get the next generation underway. “PlayStation 3 is really just hitting its stride,” he said. “And technologically, I don’t think it’s possible to provide any advancement beyond what we have.”

    Oh, and in case you were wondering, the Sony big-wig remains unimpressed with the Wii U: “I think there’s ground to be carved out for everybody. But I didn’t see anything about Nintendo’s announcement that said ‘Oh, we’d better get working on rolling out a new PlayStation here pretty soon.’ Our attitude is kind of ‘welcome to the party.’ If you’re looking at being a multimedia entertainment device, if you’re looking at high def gaming, that was 2006 for us.”[/p]

    Only, Mr. Tretton, I don't think Nintendo is trying to make a multimedia device. Never have been. Gaming only, for the most part.

    y wasn't this clown fired after the psn outage? I mean it did happen under his watch and the target was sony's american division. “And technologically, I don’t think it’s possible to provide any advancement beyond what we have.” is he serious??? the ps3 was outdated months before its release! sony's biggest problem has been: "talk big; failure to deliver." it's not surprising that this continues today considering u still have the poster-child of incompetence steering the ship.

    he says this but you can bet that Sony has allocated R&D funds for PS4 as any competitive company would/does.

    Sony is the very definition of hypocrisy. They bashed on one thing and released a product like its revolutionary and they were the 1st to do it.

    As for Mr. Tretton. The douchebag really needs to get his head out of his ass.

    The stench of arrogance emanating from that man is unbearable.

    I believe it's not that they don't need to release the PS4, it's that they can't because it hasn't even undergone enough trial testing. Or made much head weigh to be completed enough to even announce it.

    It's not even trolling. You want a real industry troll? Try Bobby Kotick.

    Of course when anyone, especially the competition says anything relatively bad about the WiiU, you all get up in arms and go "SONY SUCKS THEY'RE COPYCATS AND BLAH BLAH BLAH".

    The WiiU is kinda basically offering what the PS3 offered in '06... Just with new controls. I'm not gonna go off on Tretton for basically stating what's true.

    If Nintendo said a similarly "bashing" statement, I'm sure we'd all be like "YEAH FUCK SONY NINTENDO IS SO RIGHT".
