    Sony to unveil PS3 successor amidst video industry slump and concern about AMD chip compatibility

    ""The videogame industry is undergoing a sea change. While videogames used to be limited to dedicated game machines and personal computers, the proliferation of smartphones and other Internet connected devices is opening the floodgates to free or inexpensive games.""

    ""Complicating the design of the new device will be the likely inclusion of chips designed by Advanced Micro Devices Inc., AMD which people familiar with the matter said have been used in prototypes. The chip is separate from the technology Sony currently relies upon for its PlayStation 3, known as the Cell chip, which was developed jointly with International Business Machines Corp. IBM +0.96% and Toshiba Corp. The move would both introduce compatibility concerns with existing games, built to run on the Cell chip, while also ending a long-running partnership with Nvidia Corp. which supplies graphics chips for the current PlayStation.""
