I'm glad you said that and not me.

(Totally agree though).

Well, it's not as if such video can be fairly represented on a 480p stream. I thought it looked good enough and I'm probably more excited for the possibility of increased customization, larger maps, increased amount of limit for player-numbers in multiplayer games so on. The only thing I am really worried about is all this social stuff. I did however hear them say that anonymous player IDs would remain and that player anonymity was important to them also so I'm gonna cautiously await further details before I pass my judgment.

But overall I'm really excited! :lol:

"Everything everywhere" sounds quite ambitious - I'd be happy with "just" everything on the PS4, as much of the PS1 / PS2 / PS3 catalogue as possible. And thanks to Dave Perry and Gaikai, looks like that's what PS4 gamers may be getting :D

The "instant demo" idea sounds really good. Although it could be seen as part of the (still just a rumour) pre-owned lock out option. If every game is available for demo then there would be less worry of buying a rubbish game and not being able to trade it.

They're an incredible step up actually. There'll be no signs of screen tearing or jerkiness from now on, I guess it's more about refinement than advancement at this stage, but what I have seen looks very promising. And besides it was hardly going to be the leap that PS2 to PS3 was, was it?

Still looks a million miles ahead of the Wii U, but in saying that the crayon drawing my 5 month old daughter attempted to do looks better

I think the same, the only way people will accept pre owned games being blocked is to be able to try the game out before purchase, should be already the case but the developers are too scared to allow this as most games are crap and sales would plummet.

I hope MS also does this for the next Xbox as well, if not then Sony might get my money this time around.

You haven't seen them in 1080p yet!?!? Look at the screen shots on Guerillas Facebook page then imagine that moving, looks sweet.

I'm concerned with how all this connectivity will actually be delivered to the consumer. Does anyone remember OnLive? I tried that on a standard broadband connection and it was tragically poor quality.

These things will appeal more to countries that can actually handle streaming at high quality. Sorry continuous streaming at a high quality.

As it stands I could barely stream the conference last night at 240p

I'm also a bit worried but I think the fact that half a million people won't be trying to stream from my console will help a lot.
