Speculation: First Real PlayStation 4 Details Available


290w ago - Earlier today we reported on speculation that PS4 could be based on Cell Architecture.

As a follow-up, camineet of NeoGAF points out the following via PC.Watch.Impress.co.jp:

Goto Hiroshige has received PSX4 spec info from Japanese developer sources who received preliminary spec from SCEI for developer feedback (whom Goto refuses to name due to NDA).

- SCEI has sent rough PSX4 spec to 3rd party developers for feed back. Based on the description, PSX4 is a Wii-tized PSX3, no more than 2X as powerful.
- SCEI wants to beat Xbox 3 to launch. 2011 is the deadline, or sooner.
- SCEI pulled all its engineers from IBM Texas, and there is no new CELL architecture being developed. PSX4 will use same CELL architecture with improvements.
- SCEI will dump XDR and use standard JEDEC memory type (GDDR3/DDR3) for main memory.

And so the PlayStation 4 rumor wagon travels onward...

these things look too fake, I can believe the cell, but droping XDR would be a sword to there own throat.

Yeh seems a little early to be releasing the PS4 - I'm quite sure Sony would like to milk the PS3 for all its worth before unleashing the next beast upon us.
