Rumor: PS4 to cost at least $400, will use Gaikai

Fresh rumors pertaining to Sony’s as-yet unannounced next-generation console, PlayStation 4, have surfaced via Nikkei.

According to the report (translated by Gematsu), the new platform – codenamed Orbis – will take advantage of Gaikai; the cloud-based service purchased by Sony back in 2012. Furthermore, Sony is said to have abandoned the proprietary Cell chip used in the PS3.

Elsewhere, a second Japanese-based report claims that the PS4 will be released in the Land of the Rising Sun by the end of the year. However, most interesting is the alleged price point of the new platform, said “to exceed 40,000 yen” – that’s about $428.

Take all this with a pinch of salt until we get official confirmation from Sony, which will hopefully happen on February 20 at the PlayStation Meeting in NYC.

Stay tuned.
