Sony’s Studios Gearing For Playstation 4?

Sony News

Despite the numerous comments on how the current generation still has at least five years left, this hasn’t stopped several studios within Sony’s portfolio to start on preliminary work for several projects which may be available for the fourth Playstation console in the family.

According to Develop, a source revealed that there is work within Sony’s sixteen first-party studios on concepts for the next console. However, the identity of the studios have been disclosed, leaving some mystery of who is going to be presenting concepts. A target date, according to Develop’s source, would be no earlier than 2014. As for the moment, the Playstation 3, the Playstation Move and the Playstation Vita (which started development after the launch of the Playstation Portable, I might add) will be the main focus at least to 2013.

Over the year, Sony representatives, including SCE chairman Kaz Hirai, have denied any development on the Playstation 4, but it is worthwhile to point out that, at the rate of technological development in the 21st century, it would be no surprise that they are at the drawing boards and maybe testing some technologies out in Research & Development.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
