According to reports, Sony’s next PlayStation console will be launching next year, with a shipment of at least 20 million units during 2012. The console will apparently feature Kinect-like motion control, and production is due to start by the end of this year.

Sony America’s Jack Tretton recently commented, suggesting that there wouldn’t be a new Sony console for quite some time, although perhaps he just wanted to retain people’s interest in their current console. Then again, maybe there isn’t a grain of truth to this report.

Next year will see the release of Nintendo’s Wii U console, while Microsoft are apparently readying a new console for release in 2012.
