It's been a big 24 hours for PlayStation news, with Edge Magazine now claiming to have some inside information on the PS4. According to sources close to the project, the next PlayStation will feature a somewhat redesigned controller.

PlayStation 4 rumored to ditch DualShock controller design

Sony has been rocking its DualShock controller design ever since the original PlayStation was out in full force, but while the console launched in the US in 1995, the DualShock technology didn't make its way to the market until 1998.

Why Motion Gaming Should Be Left Out of the PlayStation 4

Why Motion Gaming Should Be Left Out of the PlayStation 4

At the end of February, Sony will be holding a special PlayStation event that, industry experts believe, will be used to show off its next console. Likely dubbed the PlayStation 4, the console is expected to come with an improved online experience, better graphics, and Blu-ray. And since the PlayStation 3 comes with the Move motion-gaming accessory, it’s believed that the console will also integrate a similar function in some way.

An announcement of the next-generation PlayStation gaming console would fit with the scheduling of a release to the public in 2014 given past release trends from Sony.

Is 2014 too late for the PlayStation 4?

Much has been made about Nintendo’s decision to launch a new Wii this year. The Wii U, which allows for gaming both on the television and the controller, is reportedly ready to hit store shelves in November, just in time for the busy holiday season.

Sony PlayStation 4 tipped for 2013

With games such as Doom 3: BFG Edition still making waves in the industry of what some would call a fading wave for console gaming, Sony's PlayStation 4's release in 2013 is sure to be a hit. That's what "sources close to the matter" speaking with the Wall Street Jounral are saying in hopes that the news this week that an ultra-slick disk-less cloud-based PlayStation was being released was bashed by early critics. This situation reflects essentially what happened when the PSP Go was released, failure that it was with downloadable content only, ditching physical game units altogether.
