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