PS4 and Xbox One suppliers latest earnings call suggest news products are on the way this year

The rumours won't stop about new versions of consoles, with Chip manufacturer AMD saying that its Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom Business group, which supplies parts for PS4 and Xbox One, is preparing for the launch of new products in 2016.

“In our EESC segment, we had record shipments of our semi-custom SoCs powering the Playstation 4 and Xbox One game consoles,” the company said in an earnings call, via Go Nintendo/MCV.

“Demand for game consoles looks strong for 2016 and we remain on track to generate additional revenue from new semi-custom business in the second half of 2016.

“Game consoles – we see units going up 2016 to 2015. We've also said in the enterprise embedded and semi-custom segment that we will be ramping some new design revenue in the second half of 2016. We have new products being introduced in both the businesses with the new design wins in the second half on the semi-custom side.”

It's not clear what this could refer to, whether it is the PS4K, a new Xbox or even the Nintendo NX. Or perhaps even something unrelated to these products.

E3 is going to be interesting this year.
