Last week gaming blog Kotaku revealed that the PS4's codename is supposed to be Orbis. Once that word was out, an avalanche of leaks and rumors about the next generation Sony PlayStation was triggered.
The SonyPlayStation Orbis is supposed to arrive in time for Christmas 2013. This is also the target for the next generation Xbox (Xbox 720). Sony is supposedly dropping the CELL CPU architecture and is working with AMD on the new PS Orbis. The architecture change might explain the rumor that the PS4 is not backward compatible, which already raised an uproar among PS3 owners. Some leaked sketches imply that the Orbis will have a camera and touchscreen user interface.
GamesIndustry.biz has published a detailed analyses of the current Sony PlayStation Orbis rumors. Read the report here.

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.
