PS4 coming before the Xbox Next
Analyst RW Baird Colin Sebastian said that today he expects the PS4 to launch before Microsoft launches there next console.
Rumors have been floating around the net lately, saying that there will be a late 2013, early 2014 release of the new consoles. Baird believes that Sony does not want to give Microsoft “first mover’s advantage” like they had with the launch of the Xbox 360.
Says the analyst:I doubt they will be ready for launch in 2013. Between Sony and Microsoft, we expect Sony to be first to market perhaps as early as 2013, but more likely in 2014. There is still a lot of investment for both companies to recoup in the current generation.
Sony has been rumored to have already begun development on PS4 titles, as has Microsoft, although neither company has commented.
