It seems that Sony may let Microsoft release its next generation console (Durango? Xbox 720? Xbox Infinity?) before releasing the PlayStation 4.
In an interview with the London Times, Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai stated, “why go first when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better?”
Of course, the Xbox 360 launched a year before the PlayStation 3, which struggled to find any sort of footing for years (though that might have been due to its $599 price tag.)
