PlayStation 4 dev kits reportedly sent to devs

Anonymous sources told VG247 today that new versions of the PlayStation 4 dev kits are being sent to developers. Codenamed “Orbis”, the PlayStation 4 has not been officially announced by Sony yet.

According to the sources, this second version of the dev kit–housed in a PC case–comes with Blu-Ray support. The previous version was little more than a graphics card, and they were sent out earlier this year.

The report also says that next updated version will arrive in January that will be closer to the final specs, and the final version will arrive in the summer. But what about those specs? VG247 states, “Orbis [...] is based on the AMD’s A10 APU series” which is a “combined CPU and GPU.”

The dev kits also have either 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM, and the goal is to “1080p60 games in 3D with ‘no problem.’” It will also come with a 256 GB hard drive “as standard.” Reportedly one of Sony’s aims to have players able to buy DLC mid-game and then seamlessly return back to the action.

More details about the gamepad are supposedly forthcoming later this month, and developers are claiming that the PlayStation 4 will be officially announced just before E3 2013. Of course, Sony doesn’t comment on “rumors and speculation” so make of all this what you will.

  1. 8 gigs is reportedly what the 360 has. 16 would be glorious… so long as it isn’t another $600 msrp. Making a seamless marketplace is… something; I’d hate a further segmented games paradigm with more fractured-game dlc practices and microtransactions.

    A summer ’13 announcement likely indicates a winter ’13 release. I really figured it’d make it to ’14.

      This is getting a bit more stcvebuije, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

      I drop a leave a response each time I apreicpate a post on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. It is a result of the passion communicated in the post I browsed. And after this article Free Playstation 3 when you purchase the Nokia X3 | mobiles with free ps3. I was moved enough to post a comment I do have some questions for you if it’s okay. Is it only me or does it seem like some of the remarks come across like left by brain dead visitors? And, if you are writing at other online sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list all of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

      I have been playing PES since ps1 (winning elveen only at the time)I have 2 complains/questions/requests:- PENALTIES pes 2011 had absolutely best penalties ever, little harder to master but you could shot whatever you wanted(lob, weak, strong, low, high)!!!Pes 2012 penalties was disappointing couldn’t shot penalty in hard and low in corner! When playing against other human he could see where the ball will go low or high, leaving him only to guess the side!- INDIVIDUAL player setting to go in attack or defence (low, medium high), not whole team only!
