PlayStation 4 may be released on February 20

Sony Corporation has sent out mysterious invitations that encourage Sony’s fans to come “see the future” on February 20. There’s no information whatsoever on the PlayStation 4 but it seems that on this day the next generation console will see the light of day after all.

The PlayStation 4 should be based on an eight-core system-on-chip with eight AMD Jaguar cores as well as AMD Radeon graphics. There will be a hard drive too as well as a Blu-Ray drive. The PlayStation 4 is expected to be capable of running video games in stereo-3D mode in full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixel resolution) and upscale video content to 4K-class resolutions (3840 x 2160 pixels).

The Sony PlayStation 4 will also come with a new controller that will replace the legendary Dual Shock. It will resemble the traditional PS controllers and will include face buttons, two thumbsticks, shoulder triggers, haptic feedback and motion sensing but there will be something new – a capacitive touchpad that can recognize two-point multi-touch. There should also be a “share” button that may have something to do with the social capabilities of the new platform.

The PlayStation 4 will surely debut this year. The device codenamed Orbis is expected to cost between USD 350 and USD 400.
