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.

The architecture doesn't actually help that much with the support/costs thing. What helps the Xbox is that it uses DirectX and it has far fewer bottlenecks than the PS3. The PS3 has OpenGL which is great, but it has a really awful memory configuration. So did the previous two PlayStations. Sony seems hell-bent on doing terrible memory setups.
People think it was the Cell that made development hard for the PS3, but that was only really relevant for the first 10 - 15 months. Working around its bottlenecks is the true pain. All three PlayStations have had this same issue for slightly different reasons. MS is also better about dev support and that sort of thing.
MS has used the unified memory setup since the very first Xbox, and it's paid off handsomely. It's clearly the best configuration for consoles (and soon, PCs). Somehow, Sony refuses to get the memo. If they don't do it this time, you can consider them down for the count.
