Sony has officially announced the launch of the PlayStation 4 (PS4) -- the next generation console from the Japanese company.

Sony's Andrew House revealed the console at a launch event in New York and it marks the next major step for PlayStation gaming.

Hardware
The new console features an eight-core CPU, eight gigabytes of RAM, a graphics processor capable of nearly two teraflops of processing power, and storage will be hard disk based.

It will feature a redesigned controller, called the DualShock 4. This controller includes a front-facing touch panel and an integrated headphone port, but still features the classic dual analogue sticks and digital controls.

Same here, except in the end I prefered the Xbox 360. Just overall the Xbox 360 was better than the PS3 in my opinion. It depends what you wanted from the console. I'm looking forward to seeing these next gen side by side though. The fact the 2 last consoles where kinda close with their tech and peripherals is a good thing, as hopefully they will try their best to out do each other, which is better for us gamers. lol

I like Playstation but I dont think Sony should be releasing number 4 yet.

Technology hasnt moved on enough to warrent a new console. Number 3 is still better than most PCs out there.

Oh yeah, we should forget updating technology, to be honest it is a bit disappointing we are not all using 386s and Ataris still.

with unreal engine 4 debuting and frostbite 2 being tweaked were going to see some impressive things coming out of both the xbox and ps4 will it be a dramatic step up from what we saw with the ps2 to ps3? No but theres going to be far more attention to detail, lighting, and the cinematic experience in gaming, not to say we wont see anything groundbreaking but i wouldn't expect developers to push a console to the limit till a few years in. Check out the watchdogs demo its still being worked on but the level of detail in the buildings, the draw distance and skybox, it looks very nice. lets face it when the ps3 and xbox 360 came out they were given a ten year life span by the time the next consoles release it will be about 8 years which isnt really that bad, and still to this day developers hate working on the ps3 architecture. sony seems to have learned from their mistakes and made the ps4 much more pc friendly.

also i have no idea what you meant by the ps3 is better than most pcs out there. thats just... crazy. any half decent gaming pc can outperform the ps3 and xbox with ease.

my biggest gripe is they better have corrected the problem with install times, patch download/intall times and transfer rates because the ps3 was atrocious for that.

I was wondering when it was coming out.  Were I work, we are selling the PS3 package really low priced.  That is always a sign in retail that a new version is coming out, gotta make way for the new product!

I heard the PS 4 is not going to be backwards compatible? Any confirmation? This will be a big determing factor for many and if this is true, will probably put the ball in Microsoft's court.

I prolly wont buy this console, it is sure to be too expensive.

Not to move offtopic, any word when the XBOX 720 is going to be released?

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

they have said it will be able to stream both ps1 and ps2 games on a type of cloud service so yes you can play your entire back catalog of games on the ps4... now keep in mind this is just now they also said the ps3 would be backwards compatable and that ended up being on one model that only lasted for 5 months lol.

it will be 500$ and under pretty much gauranteed to be a similar pricing point to the ps3 althouuuugh there are rumours of it being 400$ and under, tough to say although its quite possible as the parts produced and used in the ps4 seem to be less expensive than what they put into the ps3

i imagine both consoles will be available by the end of the year for christmas barring any delays.

nothings final just yet though, theres still plenty of speculation however infamous just dropped a new trailer for its next game on the ps4 unreal just announced it has ue4 ready for developers its moving along much faster than expected it seems.


edit: http://www.digitalsp...take-place.html

because of the different architecture of the cpu it will nto be able to play ps3 dics however the plan is to have a cloud service for playstation 1 2 and 3 games to be streamed to your console... however this makes me worry what does that mean about the hard copies i already own, do i now have to repurchase the game again... i do enjoy when new consoles release its exciting so many questions :)

I also heard they would be making it impossible to buy used PS4 games. Either the disc will come with a one-time activation code or the games will all be purchased through the PSN.
