Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 coming in two years?
 
In an interview with gamesindustry.biz, Capcom Europe’s chief operating officer David Reeves stated that we’ll see PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 successors within the next two to three years. 
 
“I don’t have any inside information,” Reeves admitted however.  “All the first-parties have got to be working on something. The tricky thing is when do you put a stake in the ground on technology? That’s the problem. You can be waiting a few extra months to implement something, but you’ve got to set a date to go with a certain chip at a certain point otherwise you’re going to miss the key milestones.”
