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 AMD's 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 gaming event in June, but that an announcement could come earlier. Clearly, the latter is true.

So ... the Wii U uses an AMD GPU and both the next-gen Xbox and Playstation will use AMD... and analysts are *downgrading* AMD's bond rating?

I know the margin is small on these, but seriously, this is guaranteed revenue for years for chips that rapidly become trivial to produce.

Again. If AMD merely designed the silicon but Microsoft and Sony own the finished product and merely have to source a manufacturer, AMD makes nothing beyond the contracting fee to design it.

I'm not sure what the relationship is between AMD and Nintendo around the Wii U.
