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.

480. The discussion was about the report of a Radeon 6670 you jackwad. That's an existing product with known specs. To be specific its a previous gen mid range card.

The only startling similarity here is your lack of reading comprehension and general human etiquette.

Read the thread you are replying to. It starts with the title "Lousy Specs". I never said it came with a 6670 that. I was replying to someone else that said it. I consider it a rumor, nothing more. Its not announced. If it comes with that, its pretty lame, that is all I was saying.

I don't know what you are trying to prove here, but you missed completely... again.

Some lamer mentioned 6670 out of his a$$ and you happily reported that "GPU is low", then before that some similar idiot reported another strange fantasy about RIM and you were happy to run around with it just the same. This is a bad behavioral pattern dude, you got to break it sooner or later ;) When will you stop running around with rumors spread by some lame idiots?

That's what's funny about you Pirks... You have reading comprehension issues and regularly misunderstand points, then you fly off the handle about something that you have misconstrued in your head that isn't even a real thing... Even when it's pointed out for you after the fact you still don't get it. At least you are consistent, I'll give you that.

Take your angry pills and come back down.

I don't think you know Pirks history. He is the resident bratty 12 year old of AT/DT.

If you guys listen to old senile retrotroll who doesn't know basics about tech and fails to understand simple things all the time - you'd better stop listening :) Listening to him will do you no good. He failed hard with his RIM "predictions" and now he repeats the same by calling PS4 GPU "low" just because some other idiot said somethig about 6670 that he pulled outta his a$$. Parroting RIM-bashing idiots did not teach him anything useful, unfortunately.

You are absolutely nuts. Reread above. I didnt predict anything. I was simply saying If its a 6670, its weak. I also said "Hopefully the 6670 is not correct, or is an early sample and the final will have something better." It was just part of a discussion.

The assertion that you think I am "predicting" the PS4 will be weak or even implying that the 6670 will be in it is where you left reality.
