Sony Says "Playstation 3 has always been planned for a 10 year shelf life"

Update - January 11th 2012
Sony President Shuhei YoshidaSony President Shuhei Yoshida recently laughed off comments when asked about the possibility of a Playstation 4 launch this year. During a Playstation Vita interview, CVG threw a number of questions at the big man but he shrugged them all off saying "We have no immediate plans for another home console announcement". This could of course just be a way to create more hype and anticipation for Sony's E3 announcements or, they may truly have no intention of releasing the Playstation 4 over the next year or two. Only time will tell, we'll let you know what happens at E3.

Sony's Deputy President Kazuo HiraiSony's Deputy President, Kazuo Hirai, recently made several comments that have trashed rumors about Sony making a Playstation 4 related announcement at E3 this June. He mentioned the fact that the Playstation 3 has always been planned for a 10 year shelf life, although this doesn't totally squash the possibility of a PS4 announcement as Sony continued to support the Playstation 2 years after the launch of the PS3. He also stated that Sony have yet to take full advantage of the capabilities of the Playstation 3 and they hope to do so using innovative technology such as the Playstation Move. Sony also plan to dedicate a lot more time and resources to the 3-D market "We are definitely, from a Sony perspective, very committed to 3-D,".

Sony's Kaz Hirai has stated "we are not making any announcements at E3. I've always said a 10-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that." Keep in mind the PS2's life cycle after the PS3 came out leaving the possibility for anything to happen...
