**NOTE: This is not the confirmed picture of the PS4
It's been rumoured that Sony have confirmed that the PlayStation 4 is to be released in 2012. The life of each PlayStation console lasts about 6 years. We also got information on what we might see on the PS4.
Sony's plan for the PS4 involves it turing on the path of the PSP Go, Only having downloadable games. PS4's implementation of the chip will use:
6-8 cores, 24-32MB shared L3 Cache, Quad threading per core, and a double precision performance approaching 200GFLOPS. The current CELL chip which powers the PS3 can achieve 15 double precision GFLOPS at its optimum therefore this means that the PS4s performance leap would be over 10 fold over its predecessor.
It is still early, more information on the PS4 will be coming soon.
