if it were coming out in 2012 hopefully they'd have the prototype done, why not at e3 then, and test it extensively to ensure no such problems as ylod etc.. i'd hope to get more life out of the ps3 than another year or so before its obsolete.. i guess its outdated compared to pc gaming though!! i won't be buying one.. i will be going pc next round.. the ps4 will be obsolete in a year!!
