PS4 Officially Announced today.

Post by mythus on Thu Feb 21, 2013 2:41 am

Well boys and girls, Sony went and announced the new PS4 to be on sale this holiday season 2013. Guess it's time to start saving all those nickels and dimes. New Killzone also announced as a launch title as well as Diablo 3. New dualshock4 controllers that have mini touch pads on them as well as the system coming with the playstation.

I don't need another ps, I already have 2 x ps3's and a ps2 too Very Happy

Not sure why anyone rushes out to buy a new one, especially at launch prices. The only reason I can think of to get one is if your old ps3 breaks.

I got my PS3 when HMV knocked about £80 off which wasn't long after it came out.

I'm with Jess on this one. I'm not going to rush out get one. I just want to play games and watch movies on the thing. The gadgetry and other apps aren't that important to me.

As expected, Sony officially announced the PlayStation 4 during tonight’s PlayStation event in NYC.

PS4 Lead system architect Mark Cerny took the stage and shed some truth-light on PS4′s guts. It has an x86 CPU, enhanced PC GPU and 8 GB of onboard GDDR5 memory, and a local hard drive. A secondary chip will handle all downloading, allowing downloads to run in the background and be played while still downloading.

As rumored, the DualShock 4 sports a touchscreen and “light bar” that interacts with the stereo camera peripheral. This allows the camera to track the motion of the DualShock 4 (creating an evolution of the Sixaxis). As seen in the leaked PS4 prototype controller images, the DualShock 4 sports a headphone jack and “share” button. The share button allows players to broadcast what they’re playing to PSN friends in real time.

Gaikai co-founder and CEO Dave Perry revealed that his company’s technology would allow players broadcast and share gameplay over social networks. The Gaikai technology will also bolster connectivity between the PS4 and PS Vita, including the ability to stream console games from the PS4 to the PS Vita.

Several games were teased during the event, including Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall, inFamous: Second Son, Watch_Dogs, Bungie’s Destiny, Drive Club, The Witness, Diablo III, a new Final Fantasy to be revealed during E3, and a new IP with the working title “Deep Down.”

The fourth PlayStation console is slated for release later this year, during the holiday season.

Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida just told our friends at Engadget current-gen PSN purchases won't transfer across to the PS4.

In last night's PS4 announcement, Sony revealed the new console won't have backwards compatibility for PS1, PS2, or PS3 discs, although the company aims to use the PS Cloud service to stream previous-gen games as a workaround.

Not to pee on Sony's parade because I'm sure they want all PS3 users to dump them and buy the new one, I think they are going to find that PS4 users (read Guinea pigs) are going to be the minority for a while. As far as I know most of our machines are working fine right now so why change them if nobody else is or can. Who would you be playing with? Next up, once the PS4 comes out the trade in value of your PS3 is going to be nill because they aren't going to want to resell the things, they will only be good for parts so you might as well keep it for as long as you can.

Going to my car analogy, why do I have to buy a new one when the one I have works just fine and shows every sign of continuing to do so?

Even more awkward is that Battlefield 4 is yet to be 'announced'.

Yes what Shane said is very true and well stated. I'm just saying that all of the companies that where around at the time of the move from ps2 to ps3, and that are still around, will remember the transitional stage of that time and may do different this time around.

at some point every one will get a ps4. remember when all we had was the ps2? the ps3 opened up so many avenues for gaming and entertainment. i wont get one yet, i may even see about one as a free gift with my next phone lol. and nobody wants to be left driving their old motor around while everyone else is in a new motor, (albeit for me "as new".) at some stage you have to go with the flow or get left behind

I never do whe it comes to expensive technology Smile I may rush into buying a game from time to time, but not with a new console. I honestly think it will be at least a year before I get one of the new consoles.
I've heard some rumours that Valve is making a console. That sounds interesting. Anyone know anything about that?

Sony studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that every PlayStation 4 release will be available as a digital download as the company shifts its focus to digital media.

“We’re shifting our platform more and more to the digital side – PS4 will be similar to PS Vita in that every game will be available as a digital download, and some will also be available as a disc. The Witness will be a digital release and because of the flexibility of the digital distribution scheme, we can have more small games that might be free or available for a couple of dollars, or different services like free-to-play or subscription models,” he told The Guardian.

Yoshida also discussed subscription services, claiming that Sony may opt for a tiered model, “As more and more services and contents become available digitally, we’ll have more of an option to create attractive packages. So hypothetically we can look at different models – like a cable TV company. We could have gold, silver or platinum levels of membership, something like that.”
