We're still waiting on that globe-like PS9 (aren't you?), but seeing as how wireless head-to-console gaming isn't yet available or ethical, we'll make do with PS4 rumors. Based on nothing more than a game of component-maker telephone, sources out of Taiwan are telling Digitimes to expect a brand new PlayStation 4 for launch sometime in early 2012. Reportedly on board for this latest iteration are baked-in motion controls à la Kinect and a holographic David Lynch virtual pet. We kid, but we do hope he helms those new ads. According to these anonymous insiders, Sony has a planned production run of 20 million consoles for launch -- all headed straight to eBay, we imagine. It should go without saying that news of this kind should be taken with a mouthful of salt, but with the PS3 turning five this November, it's a safe bet that there's a successor to the "It Only Does Everything" throne on the way.

I read that on the Engadget app yesterday as well. Interesting stuff. I barely got a PS3 late last year and a new one is already in the works. Smh haha.

I think it'll probably be done and shipped out in like 2 yrs though.

even if they do release the ps4 within 2 years, that doesnt mean they will stop supporting the ps3..just look at the ps2, that thing is STILL being sold

Depends, I read somewhere else that since Sony was proactive in getting new tech on the PS3 ie Cell Processor, Blu-Ray, etc. that they don't have to spend so much time and money on R&D for the PS4. Might be pretty similar to the PS3 just specs jumped up

Lol I read something like this recently too.. It's interesting. Don't expect for like 2-3 years though. Sony's plan from the beginning was to have the PS3 as the #1 console for 10 years because of how far it was of everything else.

Yeh, I haven't had my PS3 for very long either. Always interesting to hear about new consoles though.

I think that the next advancement in technology will be glasses free 3D. It's already on some cell phones and the 3DS obviously, but imagine the marketing campaign of a glasses free 3D PS4 :hmm:

I'm hoping the iPhone 5 is 3D as well :omg:

There are already many 3D apps in the app store. There is also an Android phone (I think it's an HTC that is already fully 3D. You should check out some of the 3D apps that are already on the app store. They actually look pretty good and the iPad and iPhone's that support these apps weren't even made for them. Imagine if Apple bases a device on 3D technology. I think it will happen.

I still don't have a 3rd Gen system, might pick this one up when it comes out though. If Kingdom Hearts III comes out on it, I'm sold :laughing:

399$ or less has to be. Would sell like hot cakes. in this economy it can't be over 500, it'll sell worse than the last one.

I would launch with different priced bundles.

Components have to be cheaper. Right?

Yup especially since the tech isn't so new this time around like the Cell Processor n bluray.

I agree, if it's over $400 i'm not even considering getting it. The PS3 was $600 at launch right? That was wayyy too much, Sony barely started making money on the PS3 like recently too I think.
