I imagine 2014 is a more realistic release for the 720 as well, i just can't see a 2013 release for the xbox, just too soon to get the hype machine rolling, i hope i'm wrong although my wallet may struggle a bit.

I dont know why the bother code-naming it, everyone knows it will be called the playstation 4 because Sony have zero imagination when it comes to naming anything. Oh and so much for the last guardian being the fabled ps3 system seller, doesnt even look like it will be released this generation at this rate.

Guys AMD is currently in real trouble. Sony would be taking a HUGE gamble relying on them so heavily for a release in 2014. There may not be an AMD in 2014.

So I call BS on this.

I bloody hope not! The pickings are looking very slim for 360 only owners next year. 2013 we WILL see the NextBox!

Totally , although could providing the innards for the next big consoles keep them afloat, their very latest chips are certainly pretty interesting beasts, re cost and being surprising near to intels best at normal clock speeds, about the time of the new console release they are going to unveil a whole new architecture.

Not convinced Nintendo is doing very well with WiiU. Still plenty for sale in the shops and a pretty patchy release schedule for the next 6 months.

Nah, the PS3 should be able to hold its own against the Wii U. However, the X720 is another matter and it's slightly worrying for Sony, if M$ is again allowed a significant head start.

As for AMD's current serious troubles, since everyone seems to be getting their chips from AMD, console manufacturers would probably have to jointly rescue AMD, if it threatened to go bankrupt (in case nobody else was coming to the rescue).

Looking at release schedules, it would be better for MS to get 720 or whatever out next year.

All Sony's major studios (the other Naughty Dog, Polyphony, Media Molecule, Guerrilla, Sucker Punch) have all been quiet the past 12-18 months, they're clearly working on PS4 titles.

PS3 can get by another year with Sly, GOW, Beyond, Last of Us and potentially Last Guardian.

I really do think that following the black friday numbers from MS and Sony, both beating Wii U during its launch week. MS and Sony feel they can relax a bit and come to market a bit later. I dont think they're seeing Wii U as a next gen competitor.

They are record breaking with it at launch being within the top 3 launches of all time in each region..........
