Report: Sony has been developing the PS4 for two years According to the LinkedIn resume of SCEA's ex-R&D director, the PS4 has been in development since 2010.
Attila Vass, who was director from 1998 until earlier this year, has in his resume that that he began developing the graphics library and security on the "Next Generation PlayStation" in August 2010.

The PlayStation Vita is listed separately, so that implies that Vass is speaking about the PS4 and not anything else.

Reads the profile (via Videogamer): "In 1998 I started as the first engineer in the Playstation US R&D. I worked on graphics ( COLLADA, PSGL ) and a lot of network related technologies ( advertising, telemetry, PVRs ) for the Playstation2-x, PSP, Vita and Next Generation platforms. Platform security was occupying most of my time at the last years... "

The PS4 is expected to launch for the holidays next year.

"Developing" is a relative term. They've been planning it since 2008, but there may not have been any near final design specs until 2010 or so.
