Yes, after a decade of life span, Sony’s PS3 may have a big brother coming soon.

Kotaku, a video games-focused blog, reports that the Japanese company is considering a multi-core CPU design to power its next-gen PlayStation 4 consoles.

Kotaku, citing the Japanese website PC Watch, notes that some developers found it challenging to find alternatives for the PS3’s Cell architecture.

“One early alternative include Cell and Intel’s Larrabee. Wanting a bit more horsepower, Sony has apparently abandoned this plan. Sony was also apparently considering a modified version of the Synergistic Processor Unit, but is now supposedly working on designs that include a mulit-core CPU.”
