With 2012 well underway Sony has sent the rumour mill spinning at top speed. News of their next generation PlayStation 4, code name Orbis, the cause of the stir.
Capturing much attention is the talk of 4k gaming, gaming at the screen shattering resolution of 4096*2160. All signs are pointing to a Q4 2013 release of the console, with word from developers indicating dev kits have already been made available to some developers.
The draconian measures planned to stop second hand games re-sales are highly controversial, Sony refusing to comment on unreleased products, the decision still not set in stone we believe. As always won’t someone think of the children.
The war of the next generation consoles is heating up already, and they haven’t even been released yet. While Microsoft kept the rumour mill spinning with tales of its X-Box 720 or ‘Durango’, it is now Sony’s turn at the wheel. Kotaku are reporting sources close to Sony revealing some juicy details regarding the Sony’s next generation PlayStation 4, codename ‘Orbis’.
