Sony PS4 with Kinect Like Senors goes into Production end of 2011: Supply Chain Rumor

Is 2012 already the big year for home console upgrades. We know already for sure that Nintendo will launch the Wii U in 2012. A new Xbox 360 is also already rumored for 2012. Today there is a new rumor from the supply chain in Taiwan carried by Digitimes saying that Sony is starting already production of the Playstation 4 end of this year.

This would mean Sony would launch the PS4 in Q1 of 2012. This would be an odd timing. The PS3 launched in November of 2006. A Spring launch for a home console is just not that effective. The holiday shopping season is a major driver for console sales. Launching in time for that is the best strategy.

The Digitimes report goes on saying that the PS4 would have a body movement-based control similar to Microsoft's Kinect. The Sony Playstation Move are definetly not as cool as Kinect. Microsoft has managed with Kinect to launch a new input platform that is not only used for gaming. It will be hard for Sony to top that.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
