PlayStation head says PS4 is still a long way off

Sony PlayStation CEO Jack Tretton has thrown cold water on speculation that a new PlayStation could be coming next year.

In an interview with Forbes Magazine, Tretton says "I don't think it's possible to provide any advancement beyond what we have," and points out that the other consoles have been playing catch up since the PS3 was launched 3 1/2 years ago. He further said "we rolled a very heavy rock up a steep hill, through the launch period. But now I think that all pays off, and we've got a long run way behind it."

Tretton says Sony will be focusing of the PS3 and Vita for now, and for anyone who doesn't believe these platforms have a long shelf life, he revealed that Sony expects to sell six million of the 11 year old PS2s this year.

Now all they need is a plan to stop those PlayStation Network hackers.
