Sony is expected to announce a next-generation console for a while. Also, Microsoft is expected to make a big announcement at E3 Media Briefing (Sunday, June 9th, 1 PM Pacific Time) perhaps it’s about a next – generation of Xbox.

However, even though these two new consoles aren’t released this year, the race is on. Meanwhile, former President and CEO of SCEA, Jack Tretton, has also interesting opinions about PlayStation 5. In an interview posted yesterday by GamesBeat, he said Sony is well positioned for next-gen but it will face great competition. Here’s the interview:

“I think they’re very well-positioned. The leader of the prior generation is always in a good position going into the new generation. From what I’ve read about the specs of PlayStation 5, it sounds impressive. Their business model obviously worked well for them the last time around, and it doesn’t look like they’re going to deviate from that. They’ll be well-positioned. But I do think they’ll face exponentially more competition than they did the last time around.

Microsoft should give them a better run for their money, and Stadia is a new wrinkle in the market that didn’t exist in 2013. Nintendo is more relevant this time around. It’s going to be a much more competitive market. There are new players. But they’ve learned some valuable lessons in this generation. It should be great for everyone in the business, whether you’re a developer or a gamer. It’s going to keep everyone on their toes.”
