Tretton doesn’t want the PS4…right now.

There’s a pretty good chance – if the corporates are to be believed – that neither Microsoft or Sony’s next generation console will debut this year, despite rumours to the contrary.

In fact, Sony’s Jack Tretton doesn’t want a new PlayStation. At least not yet.

“I, quite frankly, would be very distracted if I had to be talking about next generation hardware this year,” Tretton told IGN.

Tretton says that announcements of new hardware depend on the health of current platforms – and Sony’s quite happy with how the PS3’s performing right now.

“Right now, we’re focused on PlayStation 3, and I’ve got another platform to get out the door in seven days,” he said, referring to the shiny new PlayStation Vita’s launch.“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.”

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
