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.

Consoles are optimised

The people cribbing about the A8 and '6670' are, maybe, not realising that consoles run on software optimised for the given hardware. They pull the maximum given performance from the processor and graphics unit.

Even with the bull hardware in a ps3 it plays all modern games with reasonable textures, frames and resolution. Trying playing the same game on a home made pc with similar hardware, the game/s wont even boot.

I have an old (in 2013) pc that is starting to struggle to play new-gen games. But my ps3 still plays them acceptably well.

I do really hope we get much better graphics and performance from the console. Till then i'm saving on a new cpu unit.
