PS4 In R&D
Sony is actively working on the developing the next generation gaming console successor to the PS3. R&D budgets have already been allocated for the new gaming console. Masaru Kato, Sonys Chief Financial Officer says that We have a portable, NGP, to be launched later this year, so we have development expenses to be incurred for this product. And for home equipment, the PS3, this still has a product life, but this is a platform business. So for the future platform, when we will be introducing what product I cannot discuss that, but our development work is already underway and the costs are incurred there, he added.
