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.

When the 360/PS3 come out they could easily match a high end PC graphically, even though PC hardware was technically more powerful.

That was true when the 360 came out. The PS3 launched on almost the exact same day as the 8800GTX.

The PS3 was based on the 7800 series. The 8800GTX was far more powerful.

The 1900XT was also far more powerful than what the the 360 had under its hood, according to anandtech. The 48 unified shaders had about the same amount of power as a 800XT. They were not on the level of a 1800XT or 1900XT.

Just because the 1900XT had 48 unified shaders, and the 360 had the same amount does not mean they were the same GPU. Common misconception.

Sorry just to clearify; each individual shader for the 360 was on the level of a single shader on the 800XT.

Yeah. That's the point I was making.
