As for Sony, some game developers have already started game developing for the Playstation 4 console.

Few in the games business expect a new PlayStation to launch before 2014 – the next few Christmases will likely see Sony marketing software for PS3, Move and its new Vita handheld. – http://www.develop-online.net

Just like Microsoft’s “Xbox Next”, we believe the Playstation 4 will be mentioned at E3 2013, at to be “said to release” by holiday season of 2013. Delays and push-backs are expected from Sony’s console, and not Microsoft’s console.
