While the official reveal of Sony’s next home console could still be months away, if not longer, Kotaku has today learned some important details concerning the PlayStation 3’s successor.
For one, the console’s name—or at least its codename/working title—is apparently Orbis. And it’s being planned for release in time for the 2013 holiday season.
The details in this story come from a reliable source who is not authorized to talk publicly about next-gen hardware but has shared correct information with us before. What they’re telling us in specifics matches much of what we’ve heard and reported in generalities in recent weeks.
It doesn’t seem to me that the PS3 is nearing the end of its life just yet. Still got a bunch of good games to look forward to. But whatever happens, I’m pretty sure I’ll still be firmly in Sony’s camp if their game library remains as spectacular as always. It’s always about the games.
