According to an interview with The Verge, Sony’s head of both Sony Interactive Entertainment America, and the PlayStation Worldwide Studios group Shawn Layden revealed that the company has more PlayStations planned for the future. When asked what would be the new lifecycle of consoles, Layden said they’re currently focused on the PS4.
Layden was quoted as saying, “Right now we were concentrating on how do we iterate within this PS4 life cycle. The technology and improvements behind PS4 Plus are our way of articulating where we think the market wants to go. People will want to have greater fidelity of images and graphics. Where we go from there, we’re going to have to wait and see. It’s our first time innovating within the life cycle, so I’m not exactly sure what impact that will have on our plan going forward. But there will be more PlayStations.”
We guess it makes sense that Sony has more PlayStations planned. After all recently Sony exec Andrew House said that the PS4 Pro was designed to prevent gamers from moving to PC gaming, and with PC upgrades happening ever so often, keeping up with the PC by introducing newer and upgraded PlayStations would obviously be key. We suppose it might be too early to discuss what’s next after the PS4 Pro, but console gamers should probably start getting used to the idea of upgrading every few years versus once every 5-7 years.
