I think this confirms that the PS4 will be the last console to enter the 8th gen. Lately, Sony has been making really stubborn comments about the PS4.
    I agree. People who don't believe this needs to play any ps3 or xbox game on pc and see the difference. The pace new and faster hardware gets pumped out makes older computer parts (ps3) out dated quick.

    I'd like to see them have some type of teir ps3 system. For example, if you don't worry about pc like graphic accelerators then have a $300 base. And for people that would like the bells and whistles for pc like graphics, make a $600-$800 system capable of doing so. It still won't match a brand new unlocked i7 extreme for example but gives marginal increase to the current visuals.

    Sony- "PS4 Will Arive When Devs Max Out PS3"



    Sony is in a bit of a stalemate when it comes to next-generation talks. They've probably been in the news more than Microsoft or Nintendo when it comes to next-gen talks, mainly because everyone is looking at whether Sony will stick with a core design or will pull a Nintendo and try to go after the casual crowd. Well, recently Sony finally came forward about their true intentions for the PS4 and it basically revolves around the development life cycle of the PS3, with the company saying that the next-gen console will arrive when developers can't get anything else out of the PS3.

    In an interview with EuroGamer, Sony Computer Entertainment's director of global operations, Shuhei Yoshida, stated that…

    "Looking at the platform cycle, when the platform becomes something game developers are not able to improve their creations with, that's the time we have to really seriously consider shifting to the next generation," … "Gamers always need something new and more exciting. If they're seeing just similar types of games coming year after year, they will quickly lose their interest. "

    Actually, we have been seeing the same kind of games year-after-year. I can think of L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect, LittleBigPlanet, GTA IV, Heavy Rain and Mirror's Edge off the top of my head that are big budget games that weren't standard-fare shooters or rail-like action/RPG games.

    For some odd reason a lot of other games this generation were kind of visually impressive retreads of the same stuff we've been playing from the previous generations, which has been kind of disappointing. Heck, even Razer recently wrote an open letter to Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo addressing this very problem.

    However, Yoshida seems to feel the opposite -- he tends to think that the games industry is thriving with new and creative experiences, saying…

    "...when you see games coming out on PS3, both the traditional type of games as well as new kind of games using PS Move, there is a lot more we can do from the game development standpoint.
    "So as long as we and our developers can create new experiences that are more exciting to consumers, I see no need to transition into newer generation."

    Good deal, chief. Except, where are all these innovative PS Move games he's talking about? A year after release and so far I haven't really seen the PS Move incorporated into a game that makes it anymore innovative than Microsoft force-feeding Kinect into a game like Forza Motorsport, Mass Effect orF able. Don't get me wrong, the technology is definitely cool, but "innovative" is not a word I use to describe the software that these new hardware peripherals have been attached to. Maybe that will change with stuff like Crytek's Ryse or Dust 514.

    As it stands, though, a lot of developers and publishers, such as Ubisoft, have come forward about wanting newer consoles for bigger games and more expansive game ideas. The number one complaint within the industry right now (when developing for home consoles) is RAM, and some readers pointed out that a RAM expansion pak could greatly increase the longevitity of both consoles, considering that the processors and GPUs still seem to have a fair amount of life left in them.

    Alternatively, Nintendo has been nearly a generation behind in the hardware department with the Wii but have managed to publish some of the most innovative first-party titles out there and pushing the limits of innovation within specific genres, with games such as Super Mario Galaxy nd Metroid Other M. Unfortunately, the Wii has become bogged down with a ton of shovelware, too.

    It's a tough situation because the Xbox 360 and PS3 are capable of great games that push boundaries but such boundary-pushing games would have to come at the expense of graphics, which a lot ofpublishers are not willing to back.

    I'm just curious how long Sony will continue to hold out given that the Wii U is scheduled to launch next year and the next Xbox console is rumored to arrive a year after that. But with a recent price cut on the PS3anda few more exclusives in the works, and big budget titles like Starhaw kon the horizon, maybe they just might be able to hang on longer than expected.

    T3--PS4 concept design

    Sony PlayStation 4 concept design hints at PS4 form

    Posted by Luke Johnson on Mon 18 Jul 2011


    Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4 has made an early appearance in concept form as a new PS4 concept design is revealed

    With the PlayStation 4 release date recently rumoured as an E3 2012 possibility, a new concept design of the mooted console has been revealed outing the device’s possible form factor.



    The brainchild of designer Joseph Dumary the new PS4 design concept features an appealing aesthetic that is a natural progression from the former PS2 and current PS3 console with new features including a 1.5TB HDD and Full 3D 4K2K compatibility.






    Ensuring the console ticks all the eco boxes the PS4 concept design is crafted from 60 per cent recyclable materials with further green points given achieved by using 0 watts of power in standby mode with an ECO Restart feature meaning gamers can resume games at the point they turned the console off at without requiring large amounts of power.

    Further features touted on the concept Sony PlayStation 4 include a 3D Blu-ray player, HDMI connection ports and USB 3.0 connections whilst Qriocity, Sony Ericsson sync PlayStation widgets are also tipped for inclusion.
    Sony hasn't commented on anything about this, but the only part I find really hard to believe is the 3D 4K2K support. This kind of reminds me of the the article I reported about the 720 having visuals like Avatar.

    Yeah that sounds a little fishy to me. I don't really buy it at all. It'll be 2013 most likely before another Play Station comes out.

    This whole motion control thing that these companies are obsessed with is so dumb, and I can't wait for this fad to die off. I hate gimmicks. Although, I don't believe this rumor anyways.
    I was going to post that earlier, but then I realised how dumb of a rumor it was... There's absolutely no chance Sony goes that route with the PS4.

    Report: PS4 in 2012 With Built-In Motion Control
    Rumour emerges from Taiwan.
    UK, July 4, 2011

    As reported by Digitimes, a Taiwanese manufacturer has claimed that a PlayStation 4 is on track for release in 2012, and that it will feature "body movement-based control like Kinect".

    The source indicated that manufacturing duties will fall to Foxconn and Pegatron Technology, the company that made the PS3, with a minimum of 20 million units planned to ship in 2012.

    The report comes after weeks of speculation that the next Xbox will also be released next year, after being unveiled at E3 2012.

    We're not remotely convinced by this, partly because it flies right in the face of Sony's much-publicised ten-year strategy for the PlayStation 3, and partly because Sony execs like Jack Tretton have been so very vocal about how un-bothered they are by Kinect and Wii U. A 2012 PS3 successor would be more than a little premature.

    It wouldn't be the first time that Sony contradicted itself, though, would it?

    Whenever PS4 is launched out it truly will be a amazing system no doubt.

    I think the comment about not being able to advance past the PS3 is a load of crap.. If you guys can't get more advanced than 2006 technology then we have a huge problem.
    Its good, they should wait because I really dont want to fork out a lot of money for a new system for at least 3 years.

    “PlayStation 3 is really just hitting its stride,” he claimed. “And technologically, I don’t think it’s possible to provide any advancement beyond what we have. What we’ve seen from the competition is trying to add features that already exist in PlayStation 3. We invested heavily in that, we rolled a very heavy rock up a steep hill, through the launch period. But now I think that all pays off, and we’ve got a long run way behind it. So, I wouldn’t look for any discussion of a next generation PlayStation for quite some time.”

    Ok well... seeing as the U is getting all kinds of third party support like crazy, Arkham City, Tekken, Ghost Recon, BF, Assassin's Creed, all on the U.

    I'll call it and guarantee it right now, mark my words, Sony will be releasing the PS4 in 2013 holiday season, just watch.

    To anyone still worrying about the PS4 price-tag, Sony has apparently stated that it will be less than the $600 launch price of the PS3. As I said earlier in the thread, Sony learned their lesson with this one, I believe $450 would be a great launching price.

    Oh goodness. They need to worry more about the ease of use of these things and not just ramping up the max processing power. Nobody can figure out how the hell to take full advantage of the current cell processor, so if they're using a newer one, it'd better be more developer friendly as well.
