Sony Outlines Future Technology Aims

Posted on January 11, 2012 AT 08:52am

THE BUZZ: Masaaki Tsuruta, EVP and CTO of Sony Computer Entertainment, has revealed Sony’s plans for future technology.

“You have to look at the current solutions and the current technologies and see how long you can extend those for the expected life of the product,” said Tsuruta. “You always want ‘perfect’ technologies, but there are none. So, you look at what is available, and try to get as close as possible to that goal. Even then, some of the things that we want are still five years away [from development].”

The company is apparently aiming for a future fps rate of 300 and resolutions way above 1080p, however it is noted that these are future technologies and should not be expected with the next console iteration.

“It took five years before we saw games that used the full power of Cell, so we are used to looking ahead and having capacity,” he added. “We are looking at an architecture where the bulk of processing will still sit on the main board, with CPU and graphics added to by more digital signal processing and some configurable logic.”

EGM’s TAKE: It appears that Sony has a very clear picture of where it wants to head in terms of technology, but how long will it be before we get a glimpse?
