Report out of Taiwan Puts PS4 Released in 2012

by | @AttackFanboy | on July 4, 2011

If these rumors out of Taiwan are true, Sony is planning to start manufacturing the PlayStation 4 in 2011, with a 2012 launch window for the new console.  This is according to Tawian based manufacturing partners that are rumored to begin production on the device, Foxconn and Pegatron Tech.    The rumor which surfaced at Digi Times, claims that the 2012 release date will see at least 20 million PlayStation 4 consoles hit the market, but the real kicker is the tech coming bundled with the console.

The console is rumored to feature a body movement based control scheme similar to Microsoft’s Kinect.  How this will play into the PlayStation 4’s strategy if it turns out to be true was not divulged in the rumor.

There’s been plenty of talk about the next generation successors to the PlayStation 3 as of late, but Sony executive,  Jack Tretton,  said recently that the company sees no need for the PlayStation 3 to go anywhere, any time soon. Tretton told Forbes magazine that “I wouldn’t look for any discussion of a next generation PlayStation for quite some time”.  So take these rumors with the healthy grain of salt.   Though maybe, just maybe Sony wants to have a bullet in the chamber just in-case they need to match a 2012 surprise launch by the Xbox 360.
