Talking again on a Playstation 4 in 2012

While the news a little slowed down, in early July, the Taiwanese site Digitimes revives speculation about the Playstation 4. According to sources, Foxconn and Pegatron (a subsidiary of Asus), the PS3 already assemblers will start to make PS4 this year in preparation for launch in 2012. Digitimes even gives the estimated volume of production for 2012: 20 million units.

Still, the most important, namely the technical characteristics of the beast. The PS3, which will take five years this winter, is now in terms of raw power at a graphics card entry-level or even a smartphone. The only indication given Sony's currently (at the presentation of these financial results in May) is that the cost of manufacturing the PS4 will not be as high as that of the PS3 at its output.

This means that the Japanese will not use technology as advanced and complex as the Cell and RSX Nvidia.
