Sony has high hopes for the PlayStation 4. So high that lead system architect Mark Cerny believes the next-generation console has the potential to change the landscape of gaming.
"We have the opportunity with PlayStation 4 to fundamentally alter the landscape of gaming. We can have the highest richness and variety of content," Cerny told VG247 in a new interview.
"It really will be a renaissance of gaming."
For its part, Microsoft has also touted the potential of its next-generation machine, the Xbox One. "For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come," the company said in June.
