We are going to put this one firmly in the rumor category for now so take it for what it is worth. According to a post by IndustryGamers they have heard from “industry sources at a top developer” that the PlayStation 4 will become a real thing in the next 18 months. If we are to believe Sony then this latest report has no legs since they have gone on record several times saying that the PS3 is only halfway through its 10-year life cycle.
All things being equal we aren’t sure that Sony is going to announce a new console in 2012, but we wouldn’t be surprised. It all hinges on what you interpret “10 year life cycle” to mean. The one thing that I think everyone will agree on is that it won’t be 2016 before Sony confirms their intentions for the next generation of gaming consoles.
