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.

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.
