A Playstation is a product from Sony Company, which incorporates a series of video games played using a console. The Playstation goes by the popular initials PS. The very first Playstation was released in the year 1994 and gained wide popularity in a relatively short time. This first console, Playstation 1, was the first console to distribute about one hundred million units within the first ten years of its release. The version that succeeded it, the Playstation 2, also left its mark in becoming the best selling video console to this day. Sony’s Playstation 3 has sold over fifty million video console and Playstation 4 is about to be released to the public.
There are many rumors about the release of Playstation 4. When talking about technological rumors, more often than note the rumors are true. Rumors about this latest version of Sony’s Playstation product have been running around for a long time and fruition of the rumors are still in the works. Early claims by Sony that it was not working on any deliberations on a PS4 or any next generation console were thwarted by the announcement of the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Masaru Kato that Sony was indeed working on a PS4.
Even though earlier this year there were rumors that a research project done by Sony and IBM to come up with a power PC chip for a newer Playstation had failed, Sony continued its work with creating a multi-core and advanced cell processor. The specifications and features expected to be in the Playstation 4 include easy back-reference compatibility to the PS3 and a familiar console environment for play. It will also have, many people speculate, a sizable cell processor and may team up with Google to use Android on Xperia play.
Sony is keeping the public on edge in regards to the expected release date for the Playstation 4. It is envisioned by many that the future of this much loved gaming console lies in its ability to be played while on the move as well as its adaptability to be plugged into the television set. The originating company Sony has claimed that the current PS3 gaming console has a ten-year play lifecycle. This has been interpreted that the next Playstation will therefore be launched at the end of the year 2016.
As people speculate about the next generation Playstation, many others are enjoying the games offered by the earlier versions especially the Playstation 3. With the fiercely developing and advancing technological field, it is hard to predict how the PS4 will be like. Many experts are giving varied opinions about this new console and its relation to other partnering online entities and companies. The Playstation 4 will come, but it can only be released for public enjoyment when it is working properly and all entities involved in its creation have given their best in creating a gaming product that works to the best of its abilities.
