Report: No new consoles until 2013, PS3 to beat 360 by 2011

Wedbush Morgan Securities has forecast that no new home consoles will be released by the big three (aka Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo) until the year 2013 at the very earliest.

Speaking in a mammoth report issued yesterday, the company stated, ?Because it is eminently clear that no new console is planned for launch in 2010 (the fifth year of the current cycle), we do not expect hardware or software sales to peak any time soon. Rather, we expect that hardware and software sales will peak, as they have in the past, in the year prior to the introduction of a new console; this cycle, we think that will happen several years from now, if at all.?

?Hence, we believe that the ?peak? of the cycle will be in year n-1, with ?n? representing the launch of a next generation console. As we believe that will not occur until 2013 or later, we calculate year n-1 as 2012 or later.?

Elsewhere, the report also offers sales estimations for current generation platforms up until 2011, with the Wii, unsurprisingly, taking the top spot with global sales of 93 million. However, PlayStation 3 is placed ahead of Xbox 360, with Sony?s machine selling 49 million units compared to the 360?s 44 million.

I like the idea of having to wait until 2013 until we get some new consoles. I only got my PS3 on Christmas '07 and I don't want to see another console come out so soon. I guess its also a good enough opportunity to buy a 360, without the worry of a new console from Microsoft coming out soon after.

PS4 (PS Vantage rumour) = 2013
Wii 2 = 2011
Xbox 3 (Xbox 720 rumour) = 2011

wtf is ps vantage?

the only problem i see with your list, is a 2 year gap. sony couldn't afford to do that. people would abandon the ps3 and move to the new consoles, and sony would have to be sol for 2 years

I can't see M$ ever having the upper hand on Sony EVER. Their products have been second rate two year running.

Sony needs to keep coming out 6 months to a year later because it gives them a chance to one up M$. lol.

It was a rumoured name for the next Playstation. And it was officially Sony that gave it that name. Where was this? Have you seen the movie "Babylon AD"? In the movie, there is a scene where a bunch of buildings are shown. One of them has a huge "Playstation Vantage" sign on it. The film is also based some time in the future. I'll see if I can get a screen shot.
