Sony may have already said that they won’t be revealing the PlayStation 4 anytime soon, but that hasn’t stopped the company from revealing a few details about the inevitable release. Talking to Bloomberg, Sony’s Kaz Hirai explained why the PlayStation 4 will likely be disc-based.
According to the executive, “Relying solely on networks to deliver content is unfortunately just not possible. It’s still very difficult to have consumers download 50 gigabytes of data or more… To think everything will be downloaded in two years, three years or even ten years from now is taking it a little bit to the extreme.”
Hirai also recently stuck by the earlier claims that the PlayStation 3 is only halfway through its life-cycle. Released in 2006, that would give Sony plenty of room to breathe in a ten year life cycle. Will the PlayStation 3 be relevant in another 4-5 years? Let us know in the comments section below.
