I don't usually post these rumors about a possible PS4 etc, but this one caught my eye somewhat so I thought I'd share.
Taken from the METRO, A daily London newspaper - here's the link: http://metro.co.uk/2012/12/11/playstation-4-out-sp
As a side note I found the following in response to the article:
The use of the name Thebes is very interesting. Thebes was the capital city of the fourth nome (administration) of Upper Egypt (implying the 4th generation of the console).
Thoughts anyone, don't care, another rumor, personally I'll wait & see until I hear something confirmed by Sony.
PlayStation 4 out spring 2014 claims new rumour
New rumours suggest that the next generation PlayStation will not be out next year, but that it could instead be as late as autumn 2014.
We have to admit we’ve never heard of tech website SemiAccurate before but they do seem to be party to some insider knowledge at least. According to them the codename for the PlayStation 4 is Thebes, not the previously reported Orbis.
More importantly they claim that it will definitely be out after the next generation Xbox, and ‘most likely’ spring of 2013 – but possibly as late as the autumn.
Previously this has been the default guess of many, who saw a release next year for the PlayStation 4 as extremely unlikely.
However, the announcement at the weekend that The Last Of Us would be out in May, which appears to leave a gap in Sony’s autumn 2013 schedule, has led many to reconsider the chances of a PlayStation 4 launch next year.
For what it’s worth SemiAccurate claims that the Xbox 720 (as it’s nicknamed by fans) is now codenamed Kryptos and its system chip is referred to as Oban. Microsoft’s plan was allegedly to begin mass production of silicon wafers this year, but this has hit technical problems and may delay the launch of the entire console.
Well, that’s what the rumours say anyway. But the specifics aren’t important so much as the number of stories. There have been so many leaks and rumours about the Xbox 720 this year that it really is hard to imagine it won’t be out in 2013.
By comparison there’s been virtually nothing on the PlayStation 4, which is why most people assumed it wouldn’t be out until 2014. It is true that Microsoft is the worst at keeping secrets in the entire industry though, so maybe Sony does have a genuine surprise in store next year…

I'm tired of Rumors..... E3 2013 can't get here fast enough
If they don't do something E3 2013 will be as lackluster as last years. They've been getting even more and more, how should I put this, stale as each year passes.

I know, I mentioned it because it sounded Egyptian. I also heard of the codename Omni for the PS4....
