Sony Exec In 'Affordable PlayStation 4' Hint
Michael Denny addresses pricing of next-gen console in interview...
Sony has dropped a hint that its next-generation PlayStation console will launch at a lower price than its predecessor.
The company's Vice President of Worldwide Studios Michael Denny has been discussing the new machine with videogame magazine Edge.
He said: "I guess the first thing to say is that we listen and learn and take the judgement from every console launch we ever have and we have to be informed by what the strengths of our PlayStation 3 system have been, but also the challenges of that.
"We want a system that can reach as broad a gaming audience as possible but whilst being a system that's deep, connected, rich and immersive and is going to give a very focused and differentiated experience than anything else that's out there."
But when pressed on the pricing issue he was a little more forthcoming.
"There's plenty of time, we've got lots of information yet to give out on PlayStation 4. The initial announcement phase that we're in now is just to explain the vision to everybody.
"Part of that vision is we have created a console absolutely focused on gamers - and we want that to be gamers in the broadest sense as well. I think to some extent I can ask you to draw your own conclusions."
The console is expected to be launched globally this year.
