Sony Computer Entertainment America president and CEO Jack Tretton isn't keen to begin talking about the PlayStation 4 any time soon, as he feels the company has its hands full promoting the PS3 and Vita.
"In terms of when you talk about [the next generation] and when you announce it, it really depends on the health of the existing platform and the other things you have going on," Tretton told IGN. "And right now, we're focused on PlayStation 3, and I've got another platform (PlayStation Vita) to get out the door in seven days, 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."
Tretton was quick to note that this focus on current gen hardware could last well into 2013.
"I, quite frankly, would be very distracted if I had to be talking about next generation hardware this year."
