So according to the DigiTimes, Sony has announced that manufacturers would begin work on the Playstation 4 at the end of this year so that it may see a launch date probably late in 2012. Foxconn and Pegatron Technology, who were responsible for the assembling of the PS3 will lead the manufacture of the PS4 as well. Rumour also has it that the Playstation 4 will feature motion control similar to that of the Xbox’s Kinect.

Now, the issue that should be causing gamers discomfort is how trustworthy these sources are. There are a number of reasons why one wouldn’t and shouldn’t believe this news. Firstly, Sony just adopted the Playstation move, I can’t imagine that they would be in such a hurry to scrap it in favour of an idea that’s more or less ripped off from their closest competitors.

The Playstation 3 is an evolving console. From its initial release, we have seen an improvement in its online gaming experience, new 3D capabilities, and even Netflix options. Its evolution is still in progress so why come out of the blue with a revolution?

However if it makes anyone feel better, you don’t need to be concerned about the validity of the news because the world is going to end in December 2012 as per the Mayans’ prediction so there’s no need for anxiety over a late 2012 launch date.

How eager are you for the PS4? Are you still satisfied with your PS3? Leave any comments below.
