Naughty Dog, the creator of Uncharted, has been speaking about what it thinks the PS4 should deliver when it arrives, and it seems that a focus on social could well be on the cards.

Speaking to NowGamer, Christophe Balestra, co-president of Naughty Dog said about the PS4: "I expect it to be more of a social experience, it'll be a machine that will let you connect to all things, it will be like the centre of the house, so you can watch TV, listen to music, see pictures… I don't know."

And if he didn't push the social aspect enough, he also explained: "I think the social experience will be very, very important."

The likes of Activision has recently been pushing the social side of gaming, with the announcement of Call of Duty: Elite, a subscription service that's set to tap into the massive amount of users who play CoD online.

Sony used this year's E3 to focus on the PlayStation Vita, it's next-gen handheld console. It will be interesting to see if E3 2012's focus shifts to a replacement to the PS3.
