Many people are wondering about the PlayStation 4 release date, but Sony, and the game developers for Playstatiom 3, are really not interested to release the next generation playstation.
PlayStation was released in 1994, PlayStation 2 was released in 2000, PlayStation 3 was released in 2006, and PlayStation 4 would be released in 2012 if the every six years console release continues.
The PlayStation 4 could be delayed until 2014 due to the lack of success the PlayStation 3 had early on. Since the PS3’s debut in November of 2006, every console been sold for a loss until April 2010. Early estimates put the manufacturing cost per unit at around $805 per PlayStation 3, which lost Sony between $225 and $305 per unit sold.
However, it will not be available this year because they will be concentrating on the Sony Next Generation Portable (NGP), another console that Sony is going to show case.
According to Sony the PlayStation 3 was built to last for 10 years which could put the PlayStation 4 release at 2016. The PlayStation 3 was released in 2006, and four years later Sony continues to support the PlayStation 2, so it is possible we could see the PlayStation 4 before 2016.
