Sony‘s global chief executive, Kaz Hirai, has suggested that the next generation PlayStation will go on sale after Microsoft’s Xbox 360 successor. Speaking to The Times about console release windows, he said: “why go first when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better?”
Of course, you could always just look at the supposed specs that are doing the rounds at the moment. Such as these, via VGLeaks. The site is claiming is has the exclusive details of the next Xbox codenamed Durango. We aren’t going to pretend we understand any of it, but the important stuff (we’ve been told) is that the next-gen console will come with “8 CPU cores running at 1.6 gigahertz (GHz)”, a “custom D3D11.1 class 800-MHz graphics processor”, “8 gigabyte (GB) of RAM DDR3 (68 GB/s)”, “32 MB of fast embedded SRAM (ESRAM) (102 GB/s)”, and always present HDD, “50 GB 6x Blu-ray Disc drive” and all sorts of other stuff that one probably is expecting the console to come with.

Embattled retailer HMV has found that silver lining. Or at least, it’s a silver lining for their customers. Administrator Deloitte has decided that as from today, gift cards will once again be accepted and honoured at HMV stores. Hooray. There has also been some interest to buy the retailer, with over “50 potential suitors circling HMV.” Hooray.
Listings on Amazon – both the UK and French sites – have listed GTA V for release on the PC. The listings state the yet-to-be-confirmed PC edition of the game will be compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Surely, they know something that even Rockstar doesn’t appear to know…
Another Amazon outing is special Limited Edition of The Last of Us. Seemingly an EU exclusive, the listing gives a price €89.99 (approx. £75) and comes with a metal water bottle, a 30-day subscription to PlayStation Plus, and a sticker skin for the PS3 and Dualshock featuring artwork of main protagonists Ellie and Joel, as well as the ‘Sights and Sounds Pack’ DLC.
