Article here.

Personally I really hope they don't go down that route, seeing as how the Kinect controls seem a bit janky, but then again I don't know how reliable the source is. I doubt they'd get rid of regular controller support though so I guess it doesn't really matter in the long run.

Looking forward to getting a new console in 2012 though! Let's hope it's true!

Anyone who spells their name "Jeffry" isn't a source I want to concern myself with.

I love video games, play them loads but really liked the fact that the 360 and PS3 have lasted for much more than 5 years, I really hope it lasts for much longer. These consoles have a lot more to show us.

@conantheking: Not really. With BF3 and Skyrim coming out I think were pushing the consoles to their limit. We are approaching the time for new consoles and I'm glad for it. It just means I have to save some money until then.

Eh. I can see another two years of life in the current gen. At least I hope so, my wallet will thank them.

It was the first I heard of it though. I found nothing in the Giant Bomb PS3-forums discussing it and searching the forums for "PS4" I found no results relating to this news. Hence I brought it up.

Yeah... well since all of my favorite developers are hard at work on current-gen games, I highly doubt there would be any titles ready for a new system next year.

Again, the original source was Digitimes. Not "Jeffry". I just couldn't find a direct link to it.

Even still, I just don't buy Sony pullin' a u-turn when there just now in the last 3-4 years making significant bank on the PS3. 
 
Can't say I'm that keen on the next generation of consoles comin' this soon either, but that's neither here nor there.

Didn't Sony AND Microsoft say at E3 that they will NOT be releasing new consoles in 2012? 
 
IMO, 2014 would be the best bet, but even then, I certainly won't rush out and spend thousands on it. Plus, if PS4 becomes like a Sony Kinect, I will stop gaming on consoles.

The people who are just saying "lolno" seem harsh. Lay up, guys, seriously. 
 
I don't think this is the case, but I don't doubt that some serious brainstorming is going on at Sony right now. Integrating Kinect controls directly tot he platform could be really awesome, as long as it isn't forced into games. The functionality of Kinect is mind-blowing, if not the integration thus far.  
 
Like @iam3green said, I kind of like my current consoles. I don't really have the money to drop on another one so soon, and I think there's still a lot going for current-gen consoles.

When I play games, I want to chill on the couch and relax and enjoy it; NOT to basically exercise in my living room waving arms about under the pretense of playing videogames. 
 
If i want to wave my arms around, and /or exercise, or box, I will do it outside... not in my fuckin living room.

To get a console out for 2012 with no production ramping up or dev units in the wild seems highly unlikely.

I'm guessing the earliest release date for PS4 would be sometime in 2013, with an announcement next year at E3.

No way is a PS4 coming out next year, I if they announce one next year at E3 it would still be till like 2014-15 till we get it.

I don't think the majority of console gamers would agree with you.  In fact, it's mostly PC gamers asking for the new generation, because they feel it's holding modern games back.

2012 seems too soon for the PS4, I had my PS3 for a couple years now and it still feels like yesterday that i picked it up, 2013 announcement of new consoles and late 2014-early 2015 release seems like the right time for release.

I don't think we'll see new Microsoft or Sony home consoles in 2012. They may get announced at E3 2012, but they definitely won't launch that year. I'd say earliest would be 2013. The Xbox 360 and PS3 have enough power and features (with Kinect and Move) to match the Wii U. This is sad on Nintendo's part, considering the Wii U is a brand-new console, but oh well.

I would love to see some great news of new consoles next year, but hey they are all rumours so I'll just wait for the next E3 to see which company fires first with the next-gen hardware.

If all consoles in the future are going to be motion controlled, or have a large motion control component, then I will gladly join the ranks of the PC Master Race. 
 
Besides, Windows 8 is supposed to be able to play 360 games. There isn't much I care for on PS3. Sooooo, if this is true then it's just a minor setback for me. 
 
Well, except for my wallet. I don't have the money for a gaming PC at the moment and I don't see that happening anytime in the near future. Like, for the next four or five years future. I hope my Xbox lasts that long...
 
I don't think this is real, anyway. There's a large segment of the market that still very much enjoys regular controllers, and alienating them would be a stupid, stupid, stupid mistake. I know we're talking about corporations here, but I just don't see it happening. Wishful thinking speaking, perhaps? 
 
Oh, wait, the PS Vita! Fuck PC gaming, I'll go portable.

It would be a dumb move IMO, the Wii and Kinect have proved that motion controls can drive hardware sales, but they can't drive software sales. A bulk of their money is usually made on games so it wouldn't be as successful IMO.

2012? Really? As in next year? As in, if it were a real thing, someone at Sony would have said something official by now?

Yeah, that's probably the case. A lot of gamers don't want motion controls in their videogames, and the software for these motion games hasn't been that impressive, for the most part.
