At CES Kaz Hirai of Sony stated that there would be no Playstation 4 at this year’s E3 stating “I’ve always said a 10-year life cycle of the Ps3 and there is no reason to go away from that”. Is Sony living in the PS2 days where they couldn’t be stopped no matter what or do they have something else up their sleeve? Well according to Gaikai, a cloud based gaming service, they claim that “there won’t be another generation of systems and that will be the biggest news of E3”. This shouldn’t be taken too seriously as this seems more like a fantasy than a realistic prediction.

This week portable gaming has had more than the usual amount of news so we thought we would give you an update..
-Nekkei Trendy, a technology website for Japan, that the “Lite” model of the 3DS will be released in Japan during the first half of 2012 as many of you probably already predicted when they announced the 3DS in the first place. Hopefully this new model will have the Circle Pad Pro built into it.
– Also due to the low sales of the PS Vita shops in Japan (A little above 40,000 units, behind the 3DS, the PS3, the original PSP and even the Wii!) have been lowering their prices unofficially just to sell them from their stores, this has been happening more often with the 3G models than the regular models.
-A new Monster Hunter game has been rumored over in japan, this could be a spin off in the series or a port of the fourth title in the series which as it stands now is a 3DS exclusive.
-Capcom has confirmed that 3DS owners will be able to download the demo for Resident Evil Revelations later on this year.
-The 3DS has sold over 4 million units at this point in time, Nintendo states that this is more than the Wii sold in it’s first nine months. The regular Nintendo DS has sold over 10 Million.
