Whoa, the Playstation 4 has only recently arrived but it seems they may already be thinking and planning for the next Playstation version:

Is it too early to be thinking of another Playstation, or not?

Way too early. Relatively few have adopted the new systems as is, not many games are out, so already on the next? I know R&D takes time, but geez.

I think I read that a while ago. It's natural for companies to start ramping up for their next generation of systems right after the current one launches, so it's no surprise that the next consoles are in the works already. However, when the new consoles come out depends on how the generation goes.

The current generation of consoles just launched no too long ago and PC hardware and technology is so far ahead it's not even funny. It depends on how content gamers are with the systems. If they are selling well and games are selling well, then there is no need for the companies to rush out new systems to please fans. Kind of like what happened with the last generation.

On the flip side, there is plenty of technology out right now that could easily warrant another round of consoles in the next few years, but it depends on industry feedback and consumer demand. I think the companies will try to get the most they can out of the current gen once again and I would be surprised to see anything in the next 7 years. Maybe something from Nintendo, but that's about it.

Sounds like standard R&D talk to me. The average console generation is somewhere between 4-6 years or so. For example, the Genesis came out in the US in 1989 and the Saturn came out in 1995, if I remember correctly. Given how complicated modern consoles are, it probably takes several years of development to properly design the things.
