SCEA's Tretton: 'I Don’t Want To Be Thinking About Trying To Launch New Technology Anytime Soon'

SCE America CEO and President Jack Tretton has suggested that although Sony are always looking to the future, and considering what's next for the Playstation brand, next generation consoles and their announcements are always dependent on the health of the ucrrent crop, and Sony's pretty happy with where the PS3 is right now, with the Vita releasing next week too.

"I, quite frankly, would be very distracted if I had to be talking about next generation hardware this year," said Tretton, suggesting the likelihood of a paucity of announcements in that respect this summer.

"In terms of when you talk about [the next generation] and when you announce it, it really depends on the health of the existing platform and the other things you have going on," Tretton told IGN.

"And right now, we're focused on PlayStation 3, and I've got another platform (PlayStation Vita) to get out the door in seven days, so I don't want to be thinking about trying to launch new technology anytime soon.

"I want to focus all our energy on our console business, which is really just hitting its stride, and Vita, which really deserves a dedicated push from us."

Brilliantly, the link from HUKD to this entry clips the headline at "SCEA's Tretton: 'I Don’t Want To Be Thin...". Sounds like a much more interesting story if you ask me

I'm happy with the 'ucrrent' crop of consoles at the moment as well.
