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.

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.
