Sony has no plans to be the cheapest or the first with PS4, say SCEA’s Jack Tretton
As you may know, Sony has said virtually nothing in regards to their release plans for the next generation of consoles at E3. And according to Jack Tretton, head of SCEA, the company is okay with that.
In an interview with Gametrailers, Tretton detailed Sony’s philosophy for new consoles. “We've never been first. We've never been cheapest. It's about being the best. If you can build a better machine, and it's going to come out a little bit later, that's better than rushing something to market that's going to run out of gas for the long term.”
“Ideally, in a perfect world, you want the best machine that ships first, that's cheapest,” he added. “But the number one goal is to be the best machine, and that's what we're always focused on.”
So, just as with the PlayStation 3, don’t expect the PS4 to arrive too soon, and don’t expect to save money on it. Does this bum you out, or are you willing to wait longer and pay more for what may very well be the superior console of the next generation? Let us know in the comment box below.
