Rumor: ‘PlayStation 4’ Set For 2012 Release, With Kinect-Type Controls.

Take it with a grain of salt, but the rumor du jour is that PlayStation 4 is going to drop next year with Kinect-type controls. Oh goodie, the virus spreads!

ZD Net:

[According] to  a report from DigiTimes, which says that Sony’s next console is set to go into  production  later this year. Set for a 2012 release, the PlayStation 4 will come with an  interesting  addition: Kinect-like controls. Or so say  Sony’s Taiwan-based component makers.

More disconcerting to me than the news that it’ll have Kinect-like controls is the fact that it’s reportedly set for a release next year. Prior reports had the successors to both PS3 and the 360 dropping in 2014. I don’t want to spend them buckaroos. Not yet. Notttttttt yet.
