Using a pair of wide-angle cameras with 720p resolution, the so-called Dual Camera will allegedly feature advanced facial recognition technology and will be able to identify the user when they power up the console.

It will also feature a four-microphone array working at 48khz for improved video chat and be able to track head and hand movements with great accuracy.

Recent reports suggest that Sony's next console will feature 4K resolution support in line with a rumoured new range of Sony TVs.

Additional hardware details were leaked last year, while EA's Frank Gibeau revealed that he had seen both the PS4 and new Xbox, and suggested that the consoles would introduce gaming to a further billion people.

Potential next-generation games include Star Wars 1313, Watch Dogs and Killzone 4.

Sony is expected to announce its next home console at a media event on February 20 with a rumoured price tag of around £270 in the UK.
