Next Generation a year away says EA Labels Boss

Are you ready for the next generation of consoles? Either way, it seems like EA are, and what's more, they know when it's coming too.

EA Labels President, Frank Gibeau, has said in an new interview that the next generation of consoles will arrive in around a year's time.

"The new hardware is going to be coming out in about a year's time, so we're right around this period in time when the market's going to slow down and then you have a new game changer coming with all new technology, all new hardware, and another growth period."

We've always thought that we'd at least see the next Xbox at around Xmas 2013, and with Sony aiming to release around the same time, if not before, we'd imagine both companies will be looking to fire the console wars up once again starting in around 12 months time.

Of course the first console of this new generation will arrive this year, with Nintendo's Wii U. Will it once again outsell everything else? Time will tell.

2014 it is then? With a 2015 release for the slimmer, more reliable, quieter version

The next generation console will come around when its ready, until then lets get as much use out of the current xbox 360 as we can

As I would expect to be honest. 2013/2014 sounds OK, and with the WiiU to tide us over, we need not fret. I hope for an announcement soon though!
