So maybe The Last Guardian will be a PS4 launch title?

reading all of what the article says and not just the bits c&vg cherry picked two things strike me.

1) miiverse and a touchscreen controller.

2) this could be an absolute masterstroke by sony shooting them back to the dominance they once had, think about it, they troll ms with leaks of some beast of a machine forcing ms to develop something to compete then release something very close to the wii u, not only would ms be left with a very expensive console they couldnt afford to sell cheaply enough to compete but multi platform devs would aim to release games on the cheaper to develop for wiiu and ps4 doing lazy ports to the 720 thus further reducing its value to buyers, in the meantime if ps4 was priced to compete with wii u or within $50 / £50 sony could rely on people buying far more of their system than nintendos "kiddy" system, it could effectively end ms in the console market pushing them to move to some kind of living room media center next time around, it could rebuild sonys gutter reputation (assuming they learned from ps3 / vita) and lets face it, sony must believe that they can beat nintendo in a straight head to head race in gen 9 in a market further constricted by the 99cent app cancer.

it would take balls to risk it but the rewards could be massive with a much lower risk than trying to sell another $600+ console in what is still a very price conscious market.

I call bullshit to the article and to Billys post. If Sony release a under powered piece of s**t console I won't be buying it.

I am quite confused where you got any idea that Sony would be releasing a s**t tier console like the Wii U...

They'd better focus on hardware and performance, without those aspects games are of lower quality and as such not as popular which means less sales. Plus everyone has an iphone or galaxy etc for socialising. Gaming consoles are built for gaming. That why they're called gaming consoles. To betray those fundamentals is to betray what consoles are about. Also it appears PS4 are out to beat MS in the launch. Be interesting to see the outcome and what MS will counter with.
Gaming is not only food for being content but a managing tool to manage and stem the tide of daily and work style stresses. Don't underestimate it...

well to quote from the article
The new system will incorporate “more social gaming aspects” and be more focused on “changes in how users interact with the machine” versus “hardware improvements,”


to me that reads very much as i wrote, something the c&vg article missed on so is it really so silly?

Yeah but in many ways that would give nintendo a serious leg up. But truth be told i think there's not going to be a huge graphical leap next gen. For a start, the industry can't afford it. game production is already incredibly expensive and if its goes up much more many devs will just be priced out the market. Which is why in many ways the WiiU is a godsend as many talented devs that cant afford to develope for the 720 and PS4 can still make good games for tha. kid of how the wii had an awesome array of unique titles this gen i'm sure the wiiU will do the same in the next.

Relax folks! Focus on interface and features rather than "hardware improvement" doesn't necessarily mean it's gonna be "underpowered". Sony doesn't do "underpowered", never did. Just rumors and interpretations for now.

Besides, what does "underpowered" mean? The 360 is underpowered compared to the PS3, but it never proved to be significant except for a handful of titles like MGS4.

Anyway, I cannot express how incredibly pumped I am for their next-gen plans. Between Gaikai, the PS+, the PS4/Vita connectivity, the new management by the likes of Kaz Hirai and Shuhei Yoshida, the sheer number of first party studios and IPs they own and their newly found status as the humble outsider after so many years of dominance and arrogance... If they play their cards right they could deliver something big.

This ^ and perhaps GTA V being delayed isn't a coincidence? It probably is but that would be nuts!

Sony would have approached their 1st party studios for feedback on the minimum specification they require. There will be a balance, it won't be under or over-powered, it'll be whatever its required to be.

I wouldn't call Bulldozer 8 core cpu,4GB GDDR5-2-3GB Vram year old GPU(for a console)underpowered,infact spec can increase before release.

Where do you put a deposit when stores are closing everywhere.
Valve Steam Box please make it happen.Maybe not?
