Nintendo: Sony Feel Pressured To Launch PlayStation 4 Sooner Rather Than Later Due To Wii U

PlayStation Europe boss Jim Ryan has confessed to Eurogamer that the company would prefer to launch the PlayStation 4 sooner rather than later due to Nintendo’s announcement that the company will release its Wii U console sometime after April 2012.

“I think we would consider it undesirable to be significantly later than the competition [with the next PlayStation].”

          1. that is possible, but i expect sony to want to bring out big guns of some sort to counter what the wii u is expected to bring to the table. and as i recall, sony lost a little money on each system they sold with the ps3 so they would probably want to actually make money on their next console

    2. Nintendo tried to prevent Sony from entering Gaming since SNES days. Sony basically took what they had with Nintendo on the SNES CDi stuff and use it to guide them. That why the Sony controllers look like the SNES controller when PS1 first release it had no R2 or L2 no analog when PS1 launch. Then when N64 came with Analog Stick and Rumble Sony went and copied. NIntendo tried to sue them in America but they didn’t pass it. Sony basically used Nintendo idea to start and then start copying everything.

      1. ur right thats true since nintendo and sony cooperated to make the ps1 without the analog they copied everything that nintendo had.i wish nintendo to take back rare and its founders.not wish they must!

      2. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a PSx controller, but it did have L2 and R2 from the beginning. And it doesn’t look anything like the SNES controller. Not at all.
        And if you want to look at it that way, Nintendo “copied” (that’s what You would call it) some things of Sony too, I think ? Sony used CD’s first, didn’t they ? Even Sega used CD’s before Nintendo did. Sony used motion control before Nintendo, if I’m not wrong here. Sony had 2 analog sticks first, I guess. I’m not sure about this but I think Sony used memory cards on their gaming consoles before Nintendo did.
        The point I’m trying to get to is that every company kind of uses the ideas of other companies, they just improve those ideas and make them better.
        It’s just annoying to see people repeating the same shit over and over again. Try to look at things from different views instead of frequently accusing company A to keep copying company B.
        Without Nintendo’s ideas, Sony wouldn’t be there where they are today with video games. Vice versa, it’s the same of course. Without Sony, Nintendo also wouldn’t be there where they are now.
        That’s the way I see it. If you accuse Sony of copying, then you have to (and you actually do) admit that Nintendo is doing the same. But as already mentioned, I don’t see that all as “copying”, you do.

    3. Although you do have a point, I think the video game industry has some distinction here… Video game companies try to brand each other all the time, Nintendo has been the main target of negative branding attempts since Sega was in the game. Sony picked up where they left off.

      Should we turn the other way when Sony’s CEO declares the DS (touch feature) a gimmick, declares the Wii (motion controls) a gimmick… and then proceeds to release products with the same features five years later? I think people and organizations should be held accountable for what they do and say.

      It is not relevant who first tried something (be it the power glove or eye toy, neither of which have any similarities to the Wii from a visionary perspective)… What is relevant is the vision a company is trying to push, what they believe the industry should be. The truth is, this is Nintendo’s vision, Miyamoto’s vision, it has not changed much and many will come and go trying to claim it as their own.

      We can look at the Wii as Nintendo’s test at expanding the scope of the original vision, and expect that a vison of larger scope will materialize going forward.

        do you remember the dreamcast btw. the FIRST 6-gen console? 2 years after its release the ps2 came out. the dreamcast was discontinued because of slow sales prevented by the ps2. you see release dates dont matter if the console isnt hyped enough. yea the wii u is gonna get sales when it comes out, but you might not know what happens when the next-box and ps4 comes out.

  26. Good comments, fewer trolls, I like it!

    My thoughts, PS4 will not be released at the super high price the pS3 did, mainly because Blu-Ray tech is lots cheaper. Also, with the 3DS price drop, Sony sees that initial price hikes are not healthy.

    Nintendo took a dive, and is positioned to climb again, this is their typical pattern. They always look like their about to go down before they step it up. WiiU will be a huge success (my unprofessional opinion), and other consoles will copy elements of the WiiU over time. It’s fine, it’s how the industry works.

    I will say, I’ll be surprised if PS4 is not able to play with the Vita, Sony surely would want to mimic that trick from the start.

  29. I have some friends that believe that the Wii U is a dumb idea, they also believe that Nintendo is getting old because it’s been around for over 30 years, making video games similar to one another and should get out of the Gaming industry (they are mainly either Microsoft and/or Sony fans), this however proves them wrong, they are even putting pressure on Sony due to the Wii U being released next Year, Sony I feel has a disadvantage either way, if Sony release the PS4 early, there is probably going to be alot of complaints of it being too rushed and/or not thought through, if they release it later (2013-2014), the Wii U will have a large advantage over PS4 due to lots of decent games being released by then for lots of different audiences so Wii U would have flied off the shelves by that time, plus the Wii U we all know will have all the series we have all known and loved for many years, like Mario, Pokemon, Zelda etc. Yes I am a Nintendo Fan, but I feel that Sony shouldn’t rush the PS4 as the PS3 has still got alot left to do in it’s life time, so they should focus on the PS3 aswell, the 3DS is also set to beat DS’s sales in the first year ending because of Mario on the system, but I still see strong competition going on with the 3DS and the Vita, but I feel the 3DS will win on that, not sure whats happening with Microsoft’s new console, but at the end of the day, Nintendo I feel is the strongest company and sould be influenced for that, we wouldn’t have any great video games today if Mario didn’t debut, lol

  30. Oh great another crappy console rushed to the market because of fear of the competition. Well I won’t be getting a PS4 right away or possibly at all. The Wii U is a must buy. I love that I will be able to take a console game and play it in my hands like a handheld within a certain parameter. Plus Nintendo franchises in HD? Yes please!

    1. Ha, this article is obvious Nintendo fanboy troll bait and you fell for it. Read the source, Sony is obviously talking about MS but this troll of an author tricked you along with the other Nintendo worshipers into bashing Sony.

    Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, has argued while media focus might be turning the the unannounced next generation of consoles, Sony is still committed to the PS3.

    “There’s still a lot of unfinished business on PS3,” he told Eurogamer in an exclusive interview.

    “If you look at PlayStation 2, now in excess of 150m units installed globally, a huge majority of that was done at price points of £120 or lower. [With PS3] we’ve only just hit £199 in the UK, so clearly there’s a considerable untapped part of the market there.”

    At the launch of the current generation Microsoft had a considerable head start, launching the Xbox 360 in November 2005, a full year before the PlayStation 3. Ryan said Sony are to avoid making that mistake again.

    “I think we would consider it undesirable to be significantly later than the competition.”

    Obviously, it is not Nintendo they are worried about. Sony is feeling pressured by Microsoft. I think the industry as a whole doesn’t see Nintendo as competing with Sony or Microsoft, because Nintendo always do something drastically different. Thus, most people who own a PS3 or Xbox360 also own a Wii — they coexist. Microsoft and Sony see each other as competition. I think they both realize by now that they CAN coexist with Nintendo — just not with themselves.

    Except in the handheld sector, where Nintendo and Sony shall join forces to take down the evil that is Apple’s iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. ;P

    1. I wouldn’t say that as Nintendo has only made one system that wasn’t made to compete with the others. Personally, I can definitely see the Wii-U competing with the systems that Microsoft and Sony will put out.

  33. My God… almost every freaking post on this website turns into a damn fanboy war. I thought IGN was bad… Sure I like reading the articles on here (informed me about a lot of stuff before any other website) but there is always someone posting SONY SUCKS etc. and then it all goes to hell… Not gonna lie I love Sony more then Nintendo, I play my PS3 more then my Wii (The only game I want for it is Skyward Sword and that will probally be the last game I buy for it compared to the many I want for PS3) but It dosent mean I hate Nintendo. They are my 2nd favourite company. Now insert troll replies below lol.
