Sony’s Vice President of Hardware Marketing John Koller recently spoke to IGN about all things PlayStation, and some of the things he had to say were particularly interesting…
Koller reiterated the earlier claim that Sony continues to be committed to the PS3, stating that the company is “very pleased with the PlayStation 3,” and it intends to remain “in the PS3 business” for “quite a long time.” Unfortunately he wouldn’t be drawn on PS4 that’s rumored to be set for unveiling in 2013.
On the PS Vita Koller stated that “it’s selling on target,” before admitting that “this is a very challenging market” with “competition from tablets and mobile.” Despite this Sony is committed to Vita for the next decade, as it has “its own 10-year life cycle.” After all, “it’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
There is a definite feeling that Sony is looking to the future in a big way. It’s just a question of whether the PS4 and Vita represent a future that the majority of gamers will embrace.
