Sony has stated that it's far too early to start talking about the technology it will use to power the PlayStation 4, but they have revealed that online will play a major component in their future.
Speaking to the Guardian, Ray Maguire, the boss of Sony Computer Entertainment UK said: "Where we go after this is an interesting one. The online side is very interesting and is a big part of our business going forward. But in terms of what sort of technology we'll be using, it's far too early to say yet because we're only half way through the lifecycle of PS3 - there are many years to come on that machine."
Rumours are buzzing around about when the next home console generation will begin, especially as the Nintendo 3DS and Sony NGP are launching this year.
