Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4 dev kit news has surfaced!

The next dev kit is supposedly going to be sent in Janurary and the final version should be up and running at summer 2013. I believe the PS4 will be ready next year and will be revealed at E3 after this!

Woo.

I hope it's the most powerful of the three next gen consoles, but at the same time, easier to code for, so we don't see shoddy ports again, lol.

It will be fine. They wont make the same mistake twice. They know what they need to do now. We'll all find out soon.



I think they will show ps4 at the next e3. It falls in line with alot of rumors. I say PS4 shown 2013 released2013 or 2014, Nextbox 2014.

I don't care much for these rumors but there is a point where the news reporter says "this is to ensure that it can play games at 1080p and 60 fps in 3D"...

Sadly PS4 won't be able to do this as the 3D spec doesn't support 1080p anything over HDMI. 1080p @ 24fps for bluray is max it can do. Only connection allowing for 1080p 3D gaming is dual link DVI.

Also, even if magically they decided to include a Dual Link DVI port on some new TVs, there is no way in hell next gen will be able to do 1080p 3D @60 fps with an AMD APU. You'd need a latest Intel i5 and a GTX 680 to do that.

Otherwise, carry on with rumors...

Thats not a rumor. They are reporting on the second version of the dev kit and it leaked and the third version of the dev kit is set for Janurary.

I am thinking that it will release at the end of 2013 even though they have more than enough games flooding 2013. They have like seven hot exclusives to launch before the next launch.

1. God of War: Ascension

2. Last of US

3. Beyond: Two Souls.

4. Dust 415

5. Final Fantasy XIII: Versus

6. The last Guardian

7. Ni No Kuni

They could launch 2014 and it would still be ok.



If the the latest dev kits aren't going out until Jan and won't be finalized until mid 2012, I don't think the games will be ready for a 2013 launch. The Nextbox rumors of dev kits have been going around for a long time so it's definitely launching in 2013, but if PS4 dev kits are this late it seems like a 2014 launch for Sony. Now if devs have ha early dev kits for as long as the Nextbox then they will launch together. Rumors are rumors though.

Did we watch the same video? "Anonymous sources have told VG247..."

Doesn't sound like a confirmed intel to me. Im not saying it's all fake as it may be true, just not official info yet as long as it's anonymously being reported...

I can assure you that the 1080p 3D and 60 fps part is made up tho.
