Xbox 720 and PS4

“I saw the two”, has said in an interview at the Cologne fair, the president of one of the largest global distributors of video games.

Obviously did not disclose any details or the development cycle so we still do not know release schedule and their availability. Prototypes could be simple or more advanced machines.

Rumors point to an Xbox 720 for Christmas 2013 and a PS4 little later. Finally, Gibeau confirmed the company’s commitment to the game free-to-play, free titles in its basic version with added premium payment. A video game distribution model appears to be imposed in the future.
