PlayStation 4 Game Development Is Underway

While Sony hasn't yet officially announced the PS4, no doubt it's coming. The PlayStation 3 will get a successor. According to a "trusted source", work has started on PlayStation 4 games.

Website Develop reported that "various game projects are at very early stages". Apparently, Sony's in-house studios are starting development first, which makes obvious sense.

It seems like Sony is just starting on the PS4, and the console appears to be a few years out. We probably won't see anything until 2013, at the earliest. Next year, Sony will most likely focus on the PS Vita.

This past May, a senior Sony executive said work had begun on a future platform -- a comment Sony later said referred to the Vita.

According to one report, the next PlayStation will have Kinect-style motion controls.

In Februrary, Sony exec Kaz Hirai indicated that Sony was not yet working on the PS4.

Kotaku is following up with Sony and will update this post should the company comment.

    if they get rid of the normal controllers I'm not buying one, I'm not ever going to use those stupid motion controls. Sorry.

    Nice Shoop Bro

    "According to one report, the next PlayStation will have Kinect-style motion controls."

    I don't like this. Motion controls are getting used way too much...

    “According to one report, the next PlayStation will have Kinect-style motion controls.”

    NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

      It's called the PS EYE, they've had it for years, even on the PS2...

    I remember reading a while ago they were "investigating" the possibility of virtual reality/head-set unit, type things..

    It's all just rumor. But I'll get the console that doesn't focus on motion and just gives me hardcore gaming.

    Launch day purchase for me no matter what.

    they really need to *somehow* credibly reassure me that their online service will be locked down secure and TIGHT! downloadable demos and full games are now an essential part of my future gaming needs and if they can't do it, i will pass.

    I want a new controller!
