Orbis is the name of the next PlayStation, release details and specs

Games Gaming console

The rumors and speculation as to what the next generation console would bring have been leaking and a huge topic online again but Sony has declined to comment about the information, citing its policy no to comment on rumors and speculation. The release of the upcoming Wii U, as well as the rumors of the next Xbox “Durango” which is under development have made Sony to push the release of their next genaration console. PlayStation 4 project development is being called “Orbis“, in Latin word means circle, ring or orbit. Combine it with the name of Sony’s next-gen portable PS Vita (in Latin, Vita mean “Life”) and you have the common term “The circle of life”. Maybe, PS Vita will be playing an important role in the development and use of the next-gen console.

As per rumor says, PS4 Orbis will be using AMD x64 CPU and AMD Southern Islands GPU. Those are the names given to many of AMD’s 2012 roster of high-end PC cards. Games will be running in Orbis will support resolution up to 4096 x 2160 that is capable of playing 3D games in 1080p. PS3 can also play 3D selected games in 3D but it can only handle 720p.

Unfortunately, Orbis is not backward compatible for PS3 games but this is not final and I hope PS3 titles are still playable to Orbis. New games for the system will be available in two ways, either on Blu-ray disc or download it from PlayStation Network. Gamer should be online and games will need to be link to a PSN account. However, buying a used game is still allowed but you have to purchase an unlock code to play it or you will only play a trial mode like the major part of the game are locked out.

There is no final release date but according to Kotaku’s reliable source, Orbis is being planned for release in time for the 2013 holiday season.

    1. Malamang Asian release nyan 2014 pa nga. Dapat hindi sobra mahal tulad ng PS3 nun una hindi masyado nabili kaya natalo sila Xbox360 sa market.

  1. I’ll surely be looking forward to this one if it’s genuine. But like other gamers believe, the PS3’s time isn’t up yet. It has years more on it before a PS4 takeover.

    1. I think Sony learn from their last mistake, PS3 price was P60K when it first release, kaya mas madami bumili ng Xbox 360. Hindi siguro sobra mahal kung mare-release ang PS4. 😀
