I got the news from news sites from my own country and they don't deal in rumors so if its on there its checked and verified.

Sony has not made the official announcement that it is working on PS4 and denies everything
But that Sony was working on the PS4 was already confirmed at the share holders meeting last may.
Because when the share holders asked about a large sum of money on the ballance sheet where it was used for they reluctantly admitted that they where working on the next gen console.

The news from today comes from employees from Foxconn and Pegatron Technology.
Foxconn is the largest manufacturer from electronic devices in the world.
They manufacter nearly every brand laptop,console,motherboards,videocards,smartphone, mobile phone and tablets.
Ranging from Apple,Nintendo,Microsoft Xbox,Sony Ericson,ATI,AMD,Intel,Nvidia,Asus,Samsung and many more i forgot.

Now this is funny

It does seem pretty quick for having no previous information. Guess we'll wait and see.

Personally i kinda hope their not, not because it will mean shelling out another 300+ but because i havent really had much use out of the PS3, as i only really bought it to play FF 13, if it had been released on the PC i wouldnt have bothered at all. Although the blu-ray is handy

It's odd to have not seen any hints of it at E3, however it does fit with Sony's planned 10 year life cycle they talked about yonks ago. PS3 came out 6 years after the PS2, and by the end of this year it will have been 6 years since the PS3 launched.

Since then however they have talked about extending the life of consoles by adding things like kinect and whatever sony's shiny dildo thing is called. Seems unnecessary to be launching a new console yet, the current gen is still doing fine.

Yeah, I'm pretty satisfied with my PS3 right now and could see a lot more from this gen. I know it had a rocky start but it's seems to have come into its own lately. I really don't have a desire for a new one yet.

iAgree. Will be keeping my PS3 for at least another 2 years and then will see if the new console is worth the upgrade.
