Rumour: PlayStation 4 with Kinect-Style Controls Due in 2012

We're just going to come out and say it: this rumour is almost certainly complete and utter nonsense. Still, it's interesting nonsense, so let's go with it.
According to DigiTimes, Sony's PlayStation 4 will feature body movement controls, with production starting late this year ready for a 2012 release. Current PS3 assemblers Pegatron Technology and Foxconn will once again handle production duties, with 20 million consoles ready for launch, according to the rumour.
Of course, considering Sony's iconic DualShock controller is now in its third version it's highly unlikely the company will ditch it and go total body control — particularly considering the sizeable investment into PlayStation Move — but it's an interesting rumour all the same. Let us know what you make of it below.
