Jack Tretton, CEO and president of Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA), has admitted the prospect of unveiling a successor to the PlayStation 3 this year would prove 'distracting.'
Speaking to IGN, Tretton reiterated that the platform holder is focusing its efforts on PS3 as well as the impending western launch of PlayStation Vita, which takes place on February 22.
?I, quite frankly, would be very distracted if I had to be talking about next generation hardware this year,? he said.
?Right now, we?re focused on PlayStation 3, and I?ve got another platform to get out the door in seven days.?
Tretton concluded: ?So I don?t want to be thinking about trying to launch new technology anytime soon. I want to focus all our energy on our console business, which is really just hitting its stride, and Vita, which really deserves a dedicated push from us.?
