No new PlayStation, Xbox until 2014?

Postby Zap! » Sat Apr 23, 2011 11:46 am

(CNN) -- Gamers might have to wait at least another three years before there's any update to their Xbox or PlayStation consoles.

Prominent gaming news site Kotaku on Thursday quoted multiple unnamed sources saying both Sony and Microsoft hope to extend the life of the current generation of consoles for as long as possible.

"Both MS and Sony are telegraphing to each other that they're delaying, to milk the current [generation] and fill in previous craters better," said a source Kotaku described as an "insider who has worked with the first-party companies like Sony and Microsoft."

Other sources told the site that 2014 is the target date for the two companies, both of which rolled out significant updates to their gaming consoles in 2010.

Microsoft introduced its Kinect system and Sony introduced Move. Both motion-activated systems that were rolled out at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

I don't really see a need for them to come out with new ones until then anyway.
