Gamers all over the world are waiting in anticipation after Sony’s recent teaser about the future of PlayStation. New rumours are flooding in, the most prevalent of them being that Sony will officially announce the PlayStation 4 on February 20. According to Bloomberg, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Prachter says that Sony “is 100 percent certain to announce the PlayStation 4” during the event.Citing sources in the game development industry, Prachter says that the next-gen PlayStation will be a considerable upgrade from the PlayStation 3. “They’ll be able to put a lot more characters on the screen and allow for hyper-realistic games,” he said.While it is already known thanks to the devkit that the PS4 will run on AMD's chips, speculations say that the console will be able to render games at 240 frames a second. This would be an extreme upgrade, as the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 can only run games at 30 or 60 fps. While it is possible for a high-end PC to run games at 240 fps, it is only possible in many cases if the graphics settings of the games are stripped down to their lowest. Even many PC games these days are locked at 30 or 60 fps.
