According to a post by Industry Gamers they have heard from “industry sources at a top developer” that the PlayStation 4 may be revealed next year. More specifically, Sony hopes to show it off sometime within the next 18 months. It’s interesting how this report surfaces just a week after we heard rumors telling us that Microsoft is preparing to reveal the XBOX 720 next year. The lack of information surrounding the plans of Sony and Microsoft make their potential new products infinitely more enticing.
Whether these rumors are true or not we aren’t sure that Sony is going to announce a new console in 2012, but we wouldn’t be surprised. It all hinges on what you interpret “10 year life cycle” to mean. The one thing that everyone will agree on is that it won’t be 2016 before Sony confirms their intentions for the next generation of gaming consoles.
