Sony Insists Playstation 3 Is Next Generation, "Just Not This Generation"
Despite numerous criticisms and complaints by gamers and critics alike, Sony Computer Entertainment America still insists that the Playstation 3 is "the next generation console". But they wished to clarify that it wasn't necessarily "this generation".
"Our console plays high definition games on Blu-ray discs, but they still require numerous updates as well as in-game updates, usually on the day that the games are released. This is merely an indicator that the system is not actually supposed to be available for the current generation. Think of it as the original PC game 'Crysis'. That game would not play well on PCs at that time. But now with today's hardware, you can play it, but really don't care to because its technology is outdated."
SCEA promises that the next generation of the Playstation console will have fewer loading times and firmware updates, and generally run a lot faster, but there are no actual plans to produce the console anytime in the near future.
In related news, Microsoft's Xbox 360 is the front runner for best console in gaming history, but no one will believe it.
