Experiments within Sony’s R&D department are thought to have been extensive. Versions of the new PS4 pad include biometric sensors on the grips and an LCD touch screen, the development source claimed.
A second source, working in a separate part of the industry but still connected to Sony, said PlayStation engineers are “trying to emulate the same user interface philosophies as the PS Vita”. This is likely a reference to the touch-screen capabilities of the PlayStation handheld, and a suggestion that Sony will tightly integrate its portable and home systems.
The new console – codenamed Orbis – will be revealed in a matter of weeks, not months.
For every product or idea that reaches a finished product, there are dozens that don’t. It should be pretty obvious, that there are probably thousands of wacky PS4 ideas and experiments inside of Sony that get cut. Knowing the video games news cycle types, people can take scraps of information from an internal brainstorm and over read into that and extrapolate that into the final direction of the PS4.

It’s that time again! Time for hardware rumors about the PS3 predecessor, new peripherals and more! It’s easy to get caught up in the hype being a gamer, going from console generation to generation. Many of us have been through many console generations (not saying how many as to not give away my old age) so we know about rumors and speculations. What to believe and what not to believe in most cases. Well I have some rumors for you that are hard to believe as they are unique and maybe even a little outlandish but let’s face it. We need outlandish in our consoles to keep them relevant in the gaming world.
Before we start. These rumors come from dualpixels.com through someone known as Geno who has delivered a lot of information before that has been true in the past so the source is credible. You can see Nintendo, Microsoft and other developer rumors here as well.
Let’s get to the meat and potatoes shall we? Also please remember these are just rumors for now.
UPDATE: As was exclusively reported before by PS3blog.net, Jeff Rubenstein has now officially left Sony.
Jeff Rubenstein, often seen in Sony PlayStation’s announcement videos, at E3 hosting the pre-show and post-show of the Sony Press Conference, and also the all around guy that showcases us upcoming games is leaving Sony?
The information comes from a reliable journalist who’s been in the industry for well over 10 years. Reasons are still unknown, however Mr. Rubenstein is expected to announce his departure sometime today, Friday November 9.
We reached out to Sony to get more information and will update you with this developing story.
Others like @TheKevinDent are also posting on twitter about it, although they are not mentioning any names.
The guy that is leaving -I ain’t gonna out the guy- he is -in my mind- brilliant, underrated and Sony is poorer for it!

Michael Rooker has long been rumored to be lending his talents in Activisions upcoming shooter, Call of Duty Black Ops II. As far as a solid confirmation, nothing has been announced, but this recent tweet by yours truly may have confirmed something? Here I am reading my twitter feed and I noticed someone wrote:
Rumors and such have been spreading for some time now about a super slim PS3 model potentially launching in the near future. This isn’t exactly something new as there have been multiple versions of past Playstations as well.
Through FCC leaks and picture taken, it looks that it is indeed true that there will be a new model Playstation 3. It is smaller on all fronts and even sports a nifty top loading feature that you can see below.
