Tretton: PlayStation 4 Won’t Be The "Last Console"

Posted on Friday, November 15 @ 10:14:59 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Sony CEO Jack Tretton recently addressed the circulating speculation that PS4 and Xbox One will mark the final generation of traditional consoles as we know it, saying that he believes it couldn't be further from the truth.

Speaking to All Things Digital, the Sony exec explained:

It’s funny, I’ve heard about the “last console” since 1986, and only because that’s when I entered the business. I’ve managed to ride the “last console” wave for the last, what is that … 27 years or so? There’s a reason the console came about: Sitting in front of a big-screen TV on a couch with your friends. To get the immersive depth in gaming and to get the social experience of sitting around the living room, we’re not going to huddle around a tablet. We’re not going to huddle around a smartphone. I think the technology will come a long way, but you’re still trying to build a console, ultimately. You’re trying to get it closer to a console.

The threat in the ’80s was that the PC was going to take over, and it’s certainly alive and well, but it hasn’t taken it over, and I think smartphone and tablet gaming is actually additive. I don’t think I’ll be in the industry 27 years from now, but I think the next 27 years bode much better for the gaming industry than the last 27 did. It was plowing the road and establishing it as mainstream entertainment. Now it is mainstream entertainment, and you’re going to have generations of people who grew up with gaming. Twenty-seven years from now, you’ll be hard-pressed to find somebody that was never a gamer in some way, shape or form.

Do you think there will be a PlayStation 5 in five to ten years' time? Sound off in the comments below with your thoughts.
