Gaming enthusiasts are no doubt freaking out right about now, and not in a good way. A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft (the creator of Xbox) announced that this will be its last year at the highly popular Consumer Electronics Show, where it's served as the event's "anchor company" for over a decade. This week, Sony also revealed some disappointing information regarding its PlayStation gaming system.
The Wall Street Journal reports that "Sony said it does not plan on making an announcement about a new home console at this year’s E3 videogame trade show, deflating expectation that a successor to its PlayStation 3 will be on its way soon." Apparently, Sony asserts that the PS3 has a "10-year life cycle," meaning that gamers should not expect a new promo game console until 2016.
