After yesterday's news about GameStop's exec VP being chatty about the PS4 getting a global release this year, the CEO J Paul Raines, has now said that the Nextbox (I really hope it's called that) will be "a very hot, compelling device" in a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz.
"We've been spending a lot of time with Microsoft, but we have to let them take the lead on this, but it will be a very hot, compelling device. They are doing some really cool stuff, and I'm eager to hear them start their announcements because I think the world is going to stand up and take notice." said Raines.
He went on to say: "..We certainly don't believe that the new consoles won't be as exciting. There's a lot of demand for PS4, and I think there will be for the next Xbox as well, once it's announced."
Well..your move Microsoft! Raines didn't mention whether he would like to go on long beach walks or cuddle the new Xbox in front of an open wood burning fire, though it's pretty clear that he admires it.
