"Why go first, when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better?"

Let's see.....Sony made the Move only after the Wii with Wiimotes became successful, then there's news about Sony going with a controller with a touch screen on it for their console....and now this? Sounds like Kazuo Hirai has some past experience with "looking at the competition" after the fact.

As the saying goes...Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

You'd need at least a year to implement new hardware... It's not as if they can take the hardware for a few days and change the entirety of their new system for a launch a month later.

Why would Sony be in a hurry? They've moved more consoles than MS in a years less time and they have the specs and developers to compete with Nintendo and MS still.

I wouldn't say "copycat" so much as "follower" or "coward."

Im confused, where is this 'proof' that Sony is a copycat? He clearly is saying that he doesn't want to announce first as he's afraid MS will copy and improve off of them.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

It's PR bull, Sony isn't going to announce the next gen because they want to delay it as long as possible since ps3 is doing good right now and they want to reduce the cost of mass production of ps4 something which time will do.
