Very promising machine. We will see how it pans out with more details in the future. I will wait a till the following year to buy one, but it is nice to finally see these new consoles being introduced.

All I want to know is price. Is it gonna be $300 or are they going to rape us?

I'm not sure if I'm gonna more on to the next generation or not. I barely have time for all the games I have piled up unopened already. I guess it all depends on what comes out.

I watched the video from the unveiling conference Wednesday. It definitely looks promising. If they keep they're promises on what it will be able to do, then I think it has a real potential to be a winner.

My major concern is security over Sony's Cloud Service that it will be connecting to and hopefully the cost isn't going to be as high as the PS3 was when it first came out.

Now we just need to hear from Microsoft and what their plan is for the next generation.

i'm really excited about the PS4 :D
so I know its going to be a day 1 purchase

PsychoRS 02-22-2013 03:13 PM

I'm thinking about making it a day 1 purchase as well. I'll decide once more info becomes available and what launch titles will be coming out. If Watch Dogs is among that list, then it will definitely be a day 1 purchase! :D

Hopefully they aren't junk like the rest of the PS's. I made a very comfortable side business repairing the PS3.

Several Japanese rumor sites say that there will be 2 different models available at launch. One is rumored to range between $450-$499 and the other is rumored to range between $550-$599. They got the rumors right on the PS3 so I wouldn't be surprised if they are right this time.

I love this part of that link.

The hardware and services of the PS4 and Xbox 720 will likely continue to compete neck to neck, distinguishing themselves only through minor differences.
A few months ago, a couple developers leaked out some specs of both the PS4 and the Xbox 720. At first they was just taken as rumors but after the press conference by Sony it was shown that these "rumors" about the PS4 hardware was actually true. If these same sources are also correct about the hardware of the Xbox 720, then the hardware of the Xbox will be quite inferior to the PS4 and the performance differences between the two systems will be quite noticeable. Especially if Microsoft continues with their plan on installing Windows 8 on the Xbox and allocating half of the consoles ram to only being able to be used by the operating system. This would only allow the Xbox to have 4 gigs of DDR3 ram for games vs PS4's 8 gigs of GDDR5 (which is superior type of ram to start with).

sasquash1984 02-23-2013 03:10 PM

I just hope Microsoft gets away from the DVD laser they are using .....hopefully blu or something better , I own both a ps3 and Xbox 360, but really interested to see the new consoles

It's already been confirmed. Microsoft already made a deal with Sony to pay them a set amount per console so the Xbox can use Sony's Blu-Ray tech.

BloodRain 02-25-2013 06:10 AM

I just hope they stop holding back gaming.
Judging from the specs, looks to be another bleak 8 years of mediocre PC games. x86 only makes ports easier. Hardly touches a medium spec rig. And to be honest I haven't even touched my ps3 (Other than blu ray duty) since the huge disappointing mess of Final Fantasy 13. All that really interests me out of sony is the PSone classics on my PSPgo because of the way they try to make everything so 'accessible' and easy for everyone.

I miss the days when games where made by hobbiests for fun, to have fun. Now its all about the money, and how broad of an audience your game sells to. Look how many usless PR and Media people these companies have now compared to 10-15 years ago. Its as fake as Bollywood now. Without the amusement.

Silverlsinva 02-26-2013 05:57 PM

Ill be buying it day one for sure no matter the price!! I did it when the original Ps3s came out.

Figured that would be the case, but interesting none-the-less. The PS4 announcement for me was pretty dull. I'm primarily a PC gamer, though I own both the 360 and PS3 right now. I think if Playstation can improve the PSN enough to compete with Xbox live they'll be doing better. If not I just don't see game devs jumping on the PS4 wagon when it looks like a lot of the next gen console games are going to be depending on constant internet connections. :iono:

until games are designed to use more than a max of 2GB RAM (in other words, moving from 32-bit games to 64-bit), the RAM is kind of a moot point on the games themselves. Any PC gamer will tell you that having too much RAM is overkill. 8 is the norm on most gamer rigs because of the other aspects of the system, i.e. running an OS and having a ton of programs open. This is why the PS3 and Xbox360 had less than 1GB of RAM... it wasn't necessary to put more. As for the 720... Even if you're running 2GB of RAM on Windows 8, you still have the 2GB open for the games.

PsychoRS 02-27-2013 08:53 AM

Honestly, I'm not going to worry about what system to get. In the end it doesn't matter to me because I know I will end up with both the PS4 and the Xbox 720 eventually anyway; I will still have my sweet gaming PC as well. :D

Win - Win - Win

depending on the size you got when the ps3 first came out, it was $500-600.

I would suspect the new system to be about the same, if not a little more, when it launches.

GbrilliantQ 02-27-2013 09:08 AM

Price will be around 299-399. Its using generic parts and even blu-ray burners can be had for 50 bucks.

Bank on it.

I think $400, but I agree with you on the fact that this is why they are switching to a more standard PC x86-64 configuration (easy standard parts).

Lgndryhr 02-27-2013 11:52 AM

Sony switched to off the shelf parts in order to make this console cheaper as well as easier to develop for. I am suspecting two models priced in the $350 - $450 range. I would be shocked to see a console priced at $300 this upcoming gen. I do not count the Wii U as next gen. It's a few years too late. The only way we might see a cheaper next gen console is if Microsoft does the contract thing again with the 720.
