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.

The processor is largely irrelevant in today's gaming market. Take a look at this article posted a few days ago on Anandtech. An old dual-core Intel E6400 can push almost 30fps at 2560x1440 in Metro2033 as long as it's paired with the right graphics card. In the article, he used a 7970 and a GTX580. For comparison, the i7-3770k only pushed 33.47fps with the same card.

The main advantage to going with something like an A8/6670 is if they need to refresh the hardware, just swap the chips. They're commodity chips after all.
