Over the past months have speculated that Sony later the launch of a new generation of its PlayStation console. The company has repeatedly denied but what is taken for granted is already working on that device. Sony did not disclose any details of that development, but a trusted source portal Kotaku, usually hit with leaks, has revealed some details about the console.
The first is the name of the development project. According to the anonymous source, Sony has called the project Orbis, which could be the name that accompany of the PlayStation name.

Next to this outpouring of graphic quality, the alleged PlayStation Orbis also allow 3D games run at 1080p. Sony has opted for 3D games and PlayStation 3, so this idea, if not safe, it is very logical. Such games may have 3D quality that has not yet had a chance to enjoy.
