Is the PS4 around the corner.  According to sources Sony is currently shipping out PS 4 Dev kits to developers.  Sony is hoping for a final version by next year.  With The Nintendo Wii U hitting stores in a few weeks, Nintendo will have the most current and newest console on the market.  Neither Sony or Microsoft have announced a new console, but it looks as if Sony is looking to develop a next generation console sooner than later.

The shipping of the Orbis kit apparently follows a series of meetings held by Sony in the US this week, where the company explained what the machine was designed to do and how to get the most out of it. Interestingly, at these meetings it’s been claimed that Sony didn’t refer to the machine as “the PlayStation 4” at all, instead opting to use the “Orbis” title at all times.

The dev kits are apparently based on the AMD’s A10 APU series and come with either 8GB or 16GB of RAM, as well as the Blu-ray drive already mentioned and a 256GB hard drive as standard. This is to ensure that the console will be able to run 1080p60 games in 3D.
