PlayStation 4 allegedly codenamed Orbis; System to use AMD GPU and CPU combo
The next generation PlayStation console is internally codenamed Orbis and will utilise technologies that will curb the damaging effects of pre-owned game sales, according to a new report.
An anonymous Kotaku source says the system will also pack an AMD x64 CPU and AMD Southern Islands GPU – the latter being a new line of graphics cards used for high-end PCs.
The information is not verified. Sony has declined to comment on the matter.
It is said that games will be shipped either on Blu-ray or downloaded; the same distribution model that the PS3 operates with.
Yet Kotaku claims to have heard “from multiple sources” that the PS4 will implement anti-pre-owned technologies. The theory is that games will be registered to a single PSN account, meaning that Sony can detect the same game being played on other systems and, in turn, lock out certain features.
