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 Emol. 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 AMD's A8-3850 with a quad-core 2.9GHz processor and a 1GHz graphics card with 1GB memory.

Next gen consoles are reportedly going to remain capped at 30FPS. This is also vastly better than current generation consoles which some would argue are sufficient. Keep in mind that this will likely cost much less at launch than the PS3/XBox 360 which were released in a better economy.

The industry showing a big middle finger to the customer... I play borderlands 2 (on PC) at over 100fps on a 22" 120hz Samsung. In the year 2019 Sony expects customers to be happy with worse graphics than we had 5 years ago for the PC and only running at 30fps? Are people actually going to buy this trash and still pony up $60 for a game?

Most people are tech illiterate and don't know how to turn on a PC so yes, they are.

Well, exactly. That's you get with consoles these days.
You used to get something premium that was not really comparable to the PC, but now you just get poorly rendered versions of stuff you could be using your PC for.

To the customer, or you?

Probably be closer to $65 by then.
