President of Sony Computer Entertainment America Jack Tretton is not threatened by Nintendo’s Wii U.

&nbsp

In an interview with Forbes, Tretton spoke about Nintendo’s Wii U announcement at this year’s E3, and how Sony did not feel pressured to pump out a Playstation 4 in retaliation.

&nbsp

When asked when the company was going to start talking about Playstation 4, Tretton responded that, “PlayStation 3 is really just hitting its stride. And technologically, I don’t think it’s possible to provide any advancement beyond what we have. What we’ve seen from the competition is trying to add features that already exist in PlayStation 3.”

&nbsp

As for Nintendo’s Wii U, Tretton commented, “I didn’t see anything about Nintendo’s announcement that said ‘Oh, we’d better get working on rolling out a new PlayStation here pretty soon.’ Our attitude is kind of ‘welcome to the party.’ If you’re looking at being a multimedia entertainment device, if you’re looking at high def gaming, that was 2006 for us.”

So readers, how do you think the Wii U stakes up against the Playstation 3, based on everything we know so far?
