The specifications of PlayStation 4 developer kits from January 2013 have reportedly been revealed by official Sony documentation leaked to Kotaku.

In addition, the information - which is said to be provided by the same person who attempted to sell a pair of next gen Xbox development kits on eBay last year - supposedly reveals plans for a new controller and a fresh approach to user accounts.
The PS4 specs

System Memory: 8GB DDR3
Video Memory: 2.2 GB GDDR5
CPU: 4x Dual-Core AMD64 "Bulldozer" (so, 8x cores)
GPU: AMD R10xx Series
Ports: 4x USB 3.0, 2x Ethernet
Drive: Blu-Ray
HDD: 160GB
Audio Output: HDMI & Optical, 2.0, 5.1 & 7.1 channels

As we revealed last week, Sony is working on a new controller for PS4, although some developers are said to be working with - and dev kits support - existing Sixaxis and DualShock 3 pads, as well as PS Move.

The new controller is believed to retain the four traditional face buttons, two analogue sticks and shoulder triggers of older PlayStation pads, as well as vibration and improved motion-sensing. But it's also said to feature a capacitive touch pad, like that found on the back of Vita, capable of recognising two-point multi-touch.

In addition, the controller itself can reportedly be "clicked" to make an additional input button, and also features a new "Share" button. While this button's purpose is unclear, it may be linked to a new user account system.

According to Kotaku, PS4 will support "multi-user simultaneous logins", allowing multiple users to be signed into accounts simultaneously on a single console, meaning that they could all unlock Trophies while playing a co-op game.

I really hope these specs turn out to be true. DAT RAM.

I'm not that much into numbers, but ensure RAM is as much as for 720 and I think it'll be fine.

It's actually slightly more in total (10.2gb vs 8gb), however their VRAM will be limited to 2.2gb where Xbox's will be flexible and can be distributed freely.

keep in mind this is devkit. actual ps4 will be less powerful. most likely it won´t have 2 ethernet ports. and fewer usb 3 ports. a different hdd.

Devkits usually have more RAM as well

This is true. I don't need four USB ports or dual gigabit Ethernet and will be putting my own terabyte HDD in it.

Sadly, both the X720 and PS4 will probably have half the RAM reported.

Still, 4gb of System RAM is 16x what the PS3 has, so still a massive step up.

They might be able to use more but the ps4's is GDDR5 ram. Much more efficient.

What is the X720 using? I assumed it would be similar if not the same.
