Sony VP mentioned an E3 announcement, but said a surprise may come in the next few months
After releasing the
PlayStation 3 console
just over six years ago, it looks like Sony is ready to launch its successor as early as this spring.
Hiroshi Sakamoto, Sony's vice president of home entertainment, recently gave some vague details about when we'll finally see the PlayStation 4 in an interview with Chilean site
. According to Sakamoto, the PS4 could make an appearance as early as May of this year.
However, Sony's VP was asked whether the new console could make an earlier entrance within the next few months.
"That's still a big secret, but our friends are preparing Sony PlayStation," said Sakamoto in the interview. "I can only say that we are focused on the E3 gaming event, scheduled for June. [An] announcement may be [made] in that minute or even earlier in May."
It is rumored that the PS 4 will have a custom chip based on
A8-3850 with a quad-core 2.9GHz processor and a 1GHz graphics card with 1GB memory.

All modern consoles run on an operating system... that is always running even when gaming. These console OS' have the very same abstraction layers, typically a lightweight linux kernel.
Many current Xbox games like battlefield only run at 30fps and at 720p(!). When you display 1080p, the 720p rendered image is upscalled to 1080p but it still only renders the screen at 720p and still only pushes 30fps.

LMAO, nobody is claiming a console doesn't have an OS. The assertion, which is true, is that a console doesn't have a bloated multi-purpose desktop OS like Windows. It has a very lean lightweight embedded OS, and that allows for better application performance on the same hardware.
