Rumour: New PS4 development kits shipping now
New rumours strongly point to developers receiving new versions of the PS4 development kits.
Numerous sources have confirmed that developers will be receiving the new hardware soon housed inside a standard PC case.
According to the sources this will be the second of four versions of the PS4 devkits with a third version shipping in January that will be closer to the new machine's final release specifications.
At this stage the machine is apparently codenamed Orbis and is powered by an AMD A10 APU (Accelerated Processing Unit which combines a CPU and a GPU in one unit) and either 8GB or 16GB of RAM.
Sony's main aim is to get games to run in 1080p at 60fps in 3D, a feat that the PS3 could not manage.
The final machine is said to include a BluRay drive and a 256GB HDD as standard.
