PS4 and Xbox 720 release not coming until at least 2014?

Gaming head suggests the Xbox 720 and PS4 are still at least two years away from launch

The mooted next-generation Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 consoles will not enter the realms of reality until at least 2014, the director of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has said, claiming “consumers are happy” with the current generation consoles.

Speaking with PSM3 magazine Todd Howard, director of the Bethesda Game Studios release, suggested Microsoft and Sony will hold off introducing a new era of games consoles as consumers are still happy with the possibilities offered by the current Xbox 360 and PS3.

"I think it's going to be a while still, I really do,” said Howard discussing the possible arrival of the Xbox 720 and PS4. He added: I think consumers are happy with the current ones, there's a lot you can do with them so I don't think it's coming next year or the year after.”

Earlier reports had suggested that Microsoft was readying the repeatedly mooted Xbox 720 release date for E3 2012 with the next-gen console to hit stores ahead of next year’s Christmas period.
