Tretton on PS3: we’ve only “just scratched the surface”

God of War III is mere weeks away; and it looks good… really, really, really good. Fantastic even. But, according to Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton, developers “are still just starting to harness [the PlayStation 3],” ultimately making it tricky to fathom what the future holds in store for the system.

“You’re just starting to see games like Little Big Planet, Uncharted 2, and Final Fantasy XIII, that are really taking advantage of the technology,” says Tretton, “but we’ve clearly just scratched the surface in the PS3.” As a result, Tretton goes onto mention, we won’t see a PlayStation 4 until “somebody can craft the technology that exceeds what we’re able to do on the PS3, but we are still just starting to harness it.”

This so called ‘ten-year cycle’ is definitely good news for my bank account and any future Christmas lists.
