Another rumour has been plucked from the rumour tree, this time it suggests Sony will be launching the Playstation 4 in 2012 with around 20 million units. Read on to find out more.Rumours are coming out of the woodwork, left right and centre. The latest one is that the Playstation 4 will be released in 2012, according to Digi Times.
According to their sources, Sony will have manufacturers based in Taiwan starting manufacturing at the end of 2011 ready for a 2012 lauch, the same manufacturers that are still making the Playstation 3. The sources claim that the console will be using the head start in manufacturing to build up a stock of 20 million before the launch.
The sources also claimed that the Playstation 4 will incorporate some form of motion capture technology, possibly with features similar to the Xbox’s Kinect system.
Of course, we don’t know if this is true or just one of the many “chinese whispers” that are floating around. We tried emailing Sony, however they declined to comment on the rumor.
