The president of sony stated: We disagree. While Sony has likely learned their lesson that telling the market about the next system too early kills their sales of current systems. This being vital in a race to capture market for adopters. We disagree as technology advances make keeping systems with the same performance specs for more than 5 years, insane. Both the xbox 360 and the PS3 are already far behind in their graphic processing ability compared to gaming computers. As I have stated before, 3D processing cuts frame rates dramatically and with real time processing on lighting effects, etc. the demand on processors continues to increase.
