Playstation 4 Developer Unit Leaks Out
An early developer unit for the Playstation 4 leaked out today showing the system as well as the prototype for the new controller – Don’t worry, it’s not a boomerang. The system is supposed to have very similar specs to the new Xbox system, which also had a dev unit leak out earlier this week.
I’ve included the specs for the new system below. Interesting that the initial leak shows the system using 8GB instead of 16GB, which the new Xbox system is purported to use.
One interesting thing to note is on the prototype controller, there appears to be a touch-sensitive strip, similar to that found on the back of the Playstation Vita. I’m not sure what to take with that, but there have been talks about using the Vita as an extended capacity controller for the next system. Maybe this will have some of the features found in the Vita.
- System Memory: 8GB

Specs according to Kotaku
What are you looking forward to with the Playstation 4? Would you consider using a PS Vita as one of the controllers?
