Recently we reported that Sony is going to have a presentation of February 20th, showcasing the future of the PlayStation. Many have speculated, and rightfully so, that Sony will be revealing their PS4. Rumors about the PS4 have been circling the internet for ages, but now it seems more reliable sources are speaking up, perhaps in light of the upcoming presentation.

Edge has a slew of rumored PS4 details that are coming from a supposed industry insider. For one, the insider expects a release this holiday season for Japan and the US, with a release in Europe early in 2014. The insider also gives details about the new controller and how it will still resemble a dual shock controller, but will also have a touch pad in the middle similar to what the Vita uses. The insider also claims that the PS4 will be more powerful than Microsoft’s next system, currently code named Durango.

Remember folks, we add rumor to the title because this is only a rumor, which means it could be completely bogus, or there may be some truth to it but we just do not know. None the less, I enjoy the speculation.

  • No mention of the 8 GB GDDR5 rumour?

      Sorry I’m not much into specs, nor do I know what they mean really.

      Well, the basic idea is, the higher the number in DDR you go, the faster the RAM can be written to and accessed. In this case, it allows more polys to be written to the screen faster. And 8 gigs is a lot. I can run 20 different Internet Explorer/ Google Chrome pages, and still run Skyrim on my 8 gigs on my PC.

  • get ready for the price. Its going to kill your life savings. Lol

    • Ryan_oprainfall

      $350-$399 is what I am guessing.

    • or higher. XD

    • I doubt it’ll be that low. If the PS4 is as powerful as some people claim (i.e. enough to completely overshadow the Wii U) it’s going to cost much, much more than that.

    • Wishful thinking on the fanboys’ part isn’t the best source to base your predictions on. “Hardcore” Sony fans want raw power, but that formula didn’t work very well for Sony this gen (they have been in a financial hole), compared to their extreme success with the (slightly) underpowered PS2 in 6th gen. Rumor has it they’re going to focus less on power and more on social features, making it more like the Wii U, and that sounds more likely to me.

    • While I do have the same opinion as you, you do raise an interesting point about the PS2. I hadn’t considered that before. I did consider that the Wii would show the industry wasn’t all about power, but I guess the PS2 beat it to that. The difference is, Nintendo seemed to be the only one to get it then. Hopefully, they won’t be the only ones.

  • I can care less about how powerful it is.

  • As long as the PS4 has the same profile system as the 360, I’m in in. I’m sick of locked save data, or profile-specific data that is complicated by not being able to take my profile with me.

    Its all about the game, the PS3 specs was better than the 360 on paper but in the end, the 360 is my favorite console this gen, followed by the Wii, DS and PSP.

    Make no mistake, all console have their lot of great games, it just depend on our preference.

    I’ll probably get it a year or two down the line like i did with the PS3. Depends on the games.

    Honestly though, i feel like Sony never really has a good vision when it comes to hardware. Nintendo really tries to push innovation with their hardware, even if it seems a little gimmicky sometimes. Sony always seems to push power and build upon what their competitors are doing. I want to see them try something that seems creative and passionate with their system, not just more power.

    A touch pad… on a controller.

    An area sensitive to touch in the middle of a controller.
