?It's a long shot, but maybe. Pidgeon adds: "If Nintendo does very well with the next console, Microsoft and Sony will quickly get a lot more serious about next generation."The absolute earliest we can realistically expect the PS4 is probably 2012, which would at least match the six-yearly release schedule of previous consoles (1994 for the PlayStation, 2000 for the PS2 and 2006 for the PS3). But 2013 seems more plausible at this stage. GamePro Will the PS4 come out at the same time as the Xbox 720 (or whatever's it's called) and the Wii 2 (or Project Cafe)?Not necessarily - as I said in our Wii 2 rumour round-up, the big three gaming hardware firms are unlikely to synchronise their launches exactly. The seventh-gen machines were spread out over more than a year, and Nintendo waited 18 months after the original PlayStation came along before launching the N64.Still, Daily News Pulse argues that of all companies Sony should know the value of getting a FIFA games console to market reasonably FIFA Coins quickly. Its PlayStation and PS2, which each utterly dominated their respective console generations, were in there right from the start - the PS launching within a month of the Sega Saturn and well ahead of the N64, and the PS2 beating the GameCube and Xbox to market by two years.The PS3, on the other hand, came to market about a year after the Xbox 360, and while it's certainly holding its own, it's failed to achieve the same dominance that its two predecessors managed.(The down side to this theory, of course, is that the Wii came to market even later than the PS3, and has been the most successful seventh-gen console of all. But it does hold true that Sony consoles seem to be more successful when they get to market first, or nearly first, and prevent rivals from building up a strong fanbase.)How much will the PlayStation 4 cost in the UK?At this stage we've got absolutely no idea of a launch price for the PS4, let along a UK launch price. Sorry. We'll let you know when we do.Will the PSN hack and data leak affect the PS4 launch?It shouldn't do, although cynics will point out that Sony now has an extra incentive to move the news cycle along by making some sort of announcement. Stories across the tech press saying "Sony: PlayStation 4 will have 3D and a quad-core processor" might help people to forget the PSN debacle.What will the PlayStation 4 be called?After the success of the PlayStation, PS2 and PS3, this one seems easy, right? It'll be called the PS4, of course.Well maybe. But maybe not. As our colleagues at GamePro pointed out in a future-gazing piece back in 2006, the number four has more than a little superstitious baggage attached to it in Sony's homeland."In Japanese, the number four (pronounced "shi") also means "death" and is widely considered unlucky in a superstitious sense," the piece noted. "This cultural wrinkle is leveraged in films and manga, some of which contain the Japanese kanji character for four to add an aura of edgy danger.
