Sony: PlayStation 4 games “are in development”

But they're "not talking about when the machine is coming out."

Sony Computer Entertainment America’s senior vice president Scott Rohde is a rather blunt man when it comes to answering questions, it seems.

Asked whether he anticipates PlayStation 4 coming out within the next couple of years, and if he can confirm whether games are in development for the platform, Rohde told GameTrailers: “We’re not talking about when the machine is coming out, but I think anyone on the planet knows that, of course, games are in development.”

Why didn’t Sony show PlayStation 4 this year?

“It’s just something that we didn’t feel was important to bring up this year,” he said. “We had probably five or ten other games that probably deserved stage time today that didn’t get it.”

With seemingly next-generation games appearing at the show (Star Wars 1313, Watch Dogs – although the latter is confirmed for current generation consoles, it could go next-gen), and this generation coming to an end, next year’s E3 may be one to remember.
