The new wave of consoles will come, and they will come to milk us all. Sorry for the personal opinions, but well, it is the truth; is it not? Anyway, we could say that all of the console firms will have releases at the end of this year or following quarters. Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony; we don’t have any official info yet, but there are rumors hard to ignore:
A French finance site, Boursier.com have released a short review about a French multimedia distributor Innelec Media; which works with Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and various other firms. A rough translation of their 2016-2017 financial outlook (thanks Google Translate, for I can’t read French) implies that we will see Sony’s PS4 Neo in October 2016. Here is that rough translation:
2016-2017 The current year should be marked for the video game world by the arrival, in the first half of our fiscal year, an evolution of the Sony PS4 PS4 console with the Neo 4K with new features and that the placing on the market in October 2016 virtual reality helmet Sony VR. The exercise should also see the launch of the new Nintendo console NX, in March 2017. In addition, Innelec Multimedia will intensify its efforts at the international (Europe and Africa) and in the field of accessories, including under our brand Konix and continue the development of its new activities.
We knew that the NX will come in March 17, but Neo –we did not know. This years’ E3 will be a hot one, we can easily guess.
By the way, what do you think about this new wave of consoles? It is obvious that these moves made by console developers are made for being able to compete the technical advantages presented by a PC; but was calling these moves milking a wrong call? Do you agree with me or disagree? Tell us in the comments.
