PS4 release date coming 2012 with Kinect style gaming?
A Sony PS4 release date has finally been set as pre-Christmas 2012, just as Sony prepares to begin production of their next-generation games console this year
Sony is to begin production of the eagerly awaited PlayStation 4 console later this year ahead of 2012 release date, new reports have suggested.
Having unveiled the Sony PlayStation Vita at E3 last month, Sony is expected to officially unveil the PS4 at next year’s Los Angeles based industry showcase ahead of a pre-Christmas 2012 release with Microsoft Kinect styled movement-based gaming.
The reports which come courtesy of tech blog Digitimes suggest Taiwan-based technology manufacturers Foxconn and Peagtron Technology, both responsible for putting together the PS3, will begin work on the fourth generation PlayStation console later this year in order to meet the 20 million unit stock demand of a 2012 launch.
These latest PS4 release date reports come after it was suggested Microsoft was planned an E3 2012 unveiling for the mooted Xbox 720 sparking rumours that the two giants of the gaming market could go head-to-head next year.
