Playstation 4 to Debut at E3 Expo in June?
Following last week's announcement that production was ending on the Playstation 2, and continuing months of rumors, Sony's VP of Home Entertainment, Hiroshi Sakamato told Chilean Web Site Emol asking about the Playstation 4 that "That's still a big secret, but our friends are preparing Sony PlayStation. I can only say that we are focused on the E3 gaming event, scheduled for June. [An] announcement may be [made] in that minute or even earlier in May."
According to CNET, "Rumors surrounding Sony's next console have suggested that the Playstation 4's specifications will include a customized chip based on AMD's A8-3850 with a quad-core 2.9GHz processor and a 1GHz graphics card with 1GB of dedicated memory. Hardly the cutting edge of technology, but as other reports have suggested that the console has been designed for affordability, these kinds of facilities aren't surprising."
