According to web page: www.atomix.vg (Its a game magazine in Spanish) its seems the new Playstation 4 is coming or its some kind of massive upgrade of the actual Playstation 3 in order to create the ultimate multimedia system platform.

I translated the article:

The Australian site Smarthouse assures that "insider" of Sony it revealed to them that in less than 18 months a new PlayStation will be sent.

This supposed "PlayStation 4" would be a reviewed version, corrected and increased of the PS3 and its main difference with this one they will be the ports or bays (those that serve to annex new hardware to him, USB, card readers, ventilators, etc.).

On the other hand, it would have the same architecture of Chips that the PS3. But the most important addition would be to turn to the console a homemade servant to store, to receive and to interchange digital content among other devices of house. Even, it would bring a software to administer all type of content and to transfer it to other devices like TVs or whatever it works via Wi-Fi, as well as improved connections of exit. All this would be based on the PlayStation technology.

This technology would allow any device to connect itself to a servant of Sony in line to access to a great source of films, music and games. If this outside certain one, finally would be fulfilled the promise of Sony par excellence to turn to the PlayStation the center multimedia of digital entertainment the home. This is only a rumor that spokesmen of Sony have described as "speculation". Although, on the other hand, many of the characteristics mentioned in this "PS4" would include in the present PS3 thanks to a simple update of the lowered system of Internet, which would be ideal for all those that already they have a PS3. Although, on the other hand, it would agree with the declarations of Kutaragi on his idea to concentrate the successors of PlayStation 3 in line, thanks to which no longer there would be necessity to buy expensive hardware, but that everything would be lodged in the network. We will follow this rumor close by, to see if it becomes reality or no.

The opinion of the people who already read this article said negative comments about Sony and the new plans of this upgrade. I wonder if Sony is really desperate to get market as they did with PS2 and the results of low sales of the PS3?

Sounds more like a minor upgrade a la the Xbox 360 Elite.

i think more likely the psp will get a upgrade. sony recently cut the 20gb model so maybe they will make something new to replace it or something like the 360 elite.

 Sounds plausible. We will have to wait to see if this actually happens, although I doubt this minor upgrade and reconfiguration will have much effect on the overall appeal of the PS3. This refreshed version, should it ever come into existence will hardly be a PS4 however.

indeed ajay. I can see this happening, but not a PS4...The ps3 doesn't really have many good titles still..lol. Too early for a new console. But I could see an update to make it more interactive via the internet. It's definitely a plus based on what sony promised. Overall, still definitely worth looking into ^_^. It's a real bummer though that PS3's from now on will have no backwards compatibility...Talk about suckage, one of the benefits was being able to play all older titles without having to buy a ps2 or psx, all you'd need is a ps3 and you got all 3...::sighs::.. Damn you sony!

I doubt it'll be updated graphics hardware, that would really piss people off it they made a better video card solution for this new PS3 version. It'll most likely just be software based, updating it and allowing more features for media/interconnectivity. As always, some minor hardware changes for their boards and positional layout..But it's not gonna be too massive, mostly just software would be my guess.

I've never was a playstation for or a console fan. I just got used to the comptuers so much that I do everything on them. I do play XBOX 360 at my friends house every now and then. :) I bet it is going to cost like the current playstation 3 when it came out, around 600-800 dollars.

I don't think it will be nearly that expensive. Given Sony's sales, or lack there of, of the PS3 I would expect when this upgade is released we will see a drop in price of the PS3's that are already on the market and the upgraded version will be priced to compete with the top of the line XBOX 360.

 So curently the choices are PS3 with few good games, or X Box 360 and the Red Dawn over heating issue?  I have an Xbox that just needs an optical drive, drive lasted just past warentee.  I'll probably replace it and Ebay it out cause I'm sticking with the PC from now on.

I do not know what you could correct with the current version of the PS3.It is build solid like a rock,next to zero hardware issues after intensive use and has up to date updates

I guess we have to wait at least 5-6 years for a new model of PS3 to come out.The current PS3 can be improved a lot and Sony sends firmware upgrades pretty quick.

what the heck are you talking about? wait 5-6 years for a new model of ps3, we will already be on the ps4.

gaming cycles are around 5 years or so. around 2010-2011 we see ps4, jesus christ man......

also, can you name some specific areas in which the ps3 firmware needs improvement??

i do not think so. you buy a gaming console FOR GAMING anything extra... is just that extra. i wish i had a gaming console that could bring me beer and such but that is unrealistic to expect anything apart from movies, and games from a game console

and the playstation live/network is free and intresting.

please take some time to think about your posts :-)

Ice, a Playstation 4 in 2010 or 2011 would actually be unusual.  So far, Sony have done 6 year releases.  PS1-1994, PS2-2000, PS3-2006.  I would not expect a PS4 until 2012 at the earliest.  Microsoft does shorter life cycles, so 2010 or 2011 for the next Xbox is without any question, however.  Especially since they need higher storage capacity than DVD. 

A new PS3 in 5-6 years may seem like a bad estimation, but remember Sony revised the PS1 with the PSone in 2000, 6 years after first launching the console.  The PS2 was revised to the Slim in 2004, and in 2007 further revised to have no external power brick.  The PS3 will likely recieve a major revision to be made smaller sometime next decade, and like the PS2 may recieve even more piecemeal updates as time goes on.

completly agree with you on all points except ps4. microsoft managed to dent sony pretty bad with the year headstart of xbox 360 and even now sony is playing catch up. i dont think it will do that same mistake again. also a executive at sony commented on ps4 coming around 2010, however with date slips and problems. i think 2011 is most likely. still thats not saying the ps3 will become worthless when the ps4 comes out, heck look at the ps2 now it is still going strong.

End of 2000 - launch date of PS2

November 11,2006 - launch date of PS3

The PS2 lasted more than 5 years on the market,without the presence of PS3,and it is still going strong

true, but look at the ps3 now, its still playing catch up to the xbox 360. do you think sony would want to continue playing catch up forever? it will want to be realeased first.

im not saying the ps3 will die the moment the ps4 comes out. i think the ps3 has a good 6-8 years of life. but that doesnt stop sony from releasing a ps4.

If a new console will come so fast from Sony,like that site says,then the PS3 will be the worst console in the Playstation history!Even the PS1 lasted more,much more and A LOT of games were developed for it in the process!

I guess the number of the games that are now for the PS3 are not 1/4 of the games that were and are developed for PS2!PS2 did not need even an upgraded firmware!

Playstations 1 and 2 had the advantage of being the market leaders.  PS3 won't see as many games since it's currently in last.  But I still think Sony won't rush to market a PS4.  I guess 2011 is a possibility, but I'm still guessing 2012 most likely.

I'm not sure what you mean about the firmware.  Last-gen consoles could not be updated.  All of the current gen receive new firmware periodically.
