Kotaku is saying that it has managed to get it’s hands on a 90+ page developer kit manual for the “Orbis”, Sony’s next-generation console.
The document crucially contains specs and information regarding the console’s new controller.
Kotaku has it from a 90+ page developer document that PlayStation 4 or “Orbis” as it is being referred to, will contain 8GB of system memory, 2.2GB of video memory, a 4x Dual-Core AMD64 “Bulldozer” CPU – which gives it 8 cores, an AMD R10xx GPU, a Blue-ray drive, 160GB HDD, and 4x USB 3.0 and 2x Ethernet ports. The audio output is HDMI & Optical, 2.0, 5.1 & 7.1 channels.
The system supports Sixaxis and DualShock 3 at present, but a new controller is in development and has a working title of “Orbis Development Tool”.
The controller features the iconic four face buttons, two thumbsticks, shoulder triggers, a capacitive touch pad similar to the one of the back of PlayStation Vita, motion sensors, tilt correction, vibration function and a RGB LED light. It also curiously features a “Share” button.
PlayStation 4 will also allow for “multi-user simultaneous logins.”
Of course, this is just a rumour and Sony have not and will not confirm if there is any truth behind this specs and controller details.
As ever, we will keep you posted.
