Sony PS4 release set for pre-Christmas 2013 codenamed Orbis?

With the Sony PS3 have just passed its fifth European birthday, new reports have suggested the PlayStation 4 release is lined up for next year

 

With much rumour and speculation surrounding the next-generation console releases new reports have suggested the eagerly awaited Sony PS4 is heading for a pre 2013 holiday season release codenamed Orbis.

The latest reports, which cite a “reliable source who is not authorized to talk publicly about next-gen hardware,” have suggested that the Sony PS3 replacement is still over a year away from release with a potential PS4 launch unveiling lined up for next year’s Los Angeles based E3 gaming expo.

“The console's name—or at least its codename/working title—is apparently Orbis. And it's being planned for release in time for the 2013 holiday season,” the Kotaku report announced.

With the claimed Orbis codename tantalisingly teasing a potentially round or circular console form, the apparent pre-release moniker has sparked much speculation of the Sony PS Vita’s roll in the PS4 development with the Latin phrase Orbis Vitae meaning ‘circle of life’.
