|Concept Art for Playstation 4|
This next round of rumors hints that Sony is discussing the new system (codenamed: Orbis) with major developers so they can get to work on next-gen titles. This time around, devs are getting an upgraded demo kit from the first round which merely showed off the graphics of the machine.
Sources close to the project gave us a glimpse of the system's hardware including:
- AMD’s A10 APU
- Blu-ray optical drive
- 256GB hard-disk drive
- 8GB or 16GB of RAM
- Combination CPU and GPU single chip
Price wise, all they could get was “very affordable” but “isn’t a slouch”.
Playstation 4 is expected to hit store shelves by the end of next year.
