Sony just announced the PS4. I don’t recall the last time I ever turned on my PS3 anymore. Wait, I sold it almost 3 years ago in exchange to buy an iPad.
Performance specs and graphics no longer matter in the gaming world. The iOS ecosystem has definitely created a new platform for gaming where mobile sales have completely risen over traditional console gaming.
Sony apparently has realized this and might actually make a come back for the PlayStation. You see, by releases apps for iOS and Android and allowing tethering gameplay on the PS4, Sony potentially unlocks an all new market. A market for gamers to buy games on the go and play on their mobile devices, with the PS4 acting as a central server. Much like what Apple already does with their iCloud servers.
If this follows through, we can see much more sales for Sony raking in from their video games department.
Let’s see how the gaming world develops.
