New Sony PS4 rumored to come in 2012.
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.
