Sony offered a teaser video on Twitter
Sony's PlayStation Twitter handle
posted a video today
that teases the next-generation console, which will be announced February 20, 2013.
The PlayStation Twitter account posted a tweet saying, "See the future," with a link to the teaser video for the new console. It doesn't reveal any images of the hardware or gameplay, but rather a vague collection of shapes related to the PlayStation console and controller.
Check out the video here:
The next-generation PlayStation console, dubbed PlayStation 4, is rumored to have a custom chip based on
A8-3850 with a quad-core 2.9GHz processor and a 1GHz graphics card with 1GB memory. Hiroshi Sakamoto, Sony's vice president of home entertainment, recently said that the company planned
an announcement at the E3
in June, but that an announcement could come earlier. Clearly, the latter is true.

Why would it lack the modern ISAs? I think you mean it would no include all of the older stuff like x87, 3dnow,maybe some the 128b and 256b functions and maybe the branch prediction engines. It will be a cpu with stripped out legacy bloat. They chose the fusion architecture since it is the most recent and more efficient architecture AMD has shipping. Since consoles are usually already behind a tad then they ship, why make it even more outdated?
I get the feeling most of the details will be correct but the clock speeds might be higher. Maybe these consoles will turn a profit on day one this time. We shall see.

It can have whatever ISAs they want it to have. They're not buying the CPU off the shelf, lol. It's a console -- it's going to have custom features.
Also, it won't be Llano-based. Promise. Llano is from two years ago, and provides no savings or efficiencies of any kind over its newer counterparts. The console isn't even out yet. Sony is stupid, but not THAT stupid.
