    Yeah, watching it right now! Totally worth it! Now just tell us about the GPU and Processor! It probably is more powerful than most modern computers!

    • Asdfjuma

      Probably not. It may have more cores than usual as many AMD CPUs do. But those cores may not necessarily pack that much of a punch if they are much like other AMD CPUs which for gaming at least all seem to be blown out of the water by Intel’a quad core line up.

    going to be way to expensive though… I will wait for the price to drop

    Well, I missed all but the last 5 minutes, but I can’t believe Bungie is releasing something for the PS4.
    Think it will be better than the original Halo?

      They never showed it. I assume they must be still working on it.

      • hgoel0974

        I think so as well, none of the games are ‘complete’ I think, most are still WIPs, they probably still have to take care of some loose ends.

        I don’t like the touchscreen though, it is like the rear touchpad, so how do you know where the game expects you to touch, if it’s for gestures then fine.

        I really liked the design of the ‘motion sensor’, instead of transmitting more data wirelessly by using gyroscopes, they used the PS3’s system, tracking the light, but I don’t understand how that could be so accurate, do the PS3 remotes also have some infrared waves as well?

    And so it begins…

  8. JC200X

    Two hours later, and no console unveiling…

  9. Lawthugg

  10. Cosmin2310

    PS4 is for E3

  11. youngoz

    Kinda disappointed with presentation… wanted to see more…

  12. Evil_Dooms

    Watch dogs looks mint, i hope its a ps4 launch title.
    Shame they didnt show the console but maybe at e3 they will show us a nice sexy design.

  13. Yojimbo

    Why a touch pad? I hope it’s not gonna be one of those things I never use, like the 3DS’s 3D, the Vita’s back touchpad, and the Xbox’s Kinect.

  14. artmaze7

    Nice article. Rumors say it will have 2 models. One of which will cost about $429 and the second $529. Also, it will be released in November.

  16. Show

    “The cloud tech is advanced Sony could put PS1, PS2, PS3, and PlayStation Mobile games on any device”

    That’s all I heard.

    • gunblade

      bumers jus there mobile game well sum r prety alright any on there classic psx game them on mobiles would be cool tough n sony can make money light nintendo with the old games going mobile..

  17. FoxSevent

    So no Backward compatibility, maybe possibly via streaming like “On-live” service.
    I can already see this just like PSN PS3 games or PSP games for
    PS VITA about 5% of games of will be available.

    As for the games im disappointed, really port of “Diablo 3” for PS3 and PS4 and a new “Final Fantasy”.

    Out of Ubisoft i was hoping for “Beyond Good and Evil 2” and from Square-Enix you guessed “Final Fantasy VII Remake” cause seriously latest “Final Fantasy” are rally disappointing.

    • gunblade

      wy after final fantasy eight i went everquest and final fantasy vanadeil the ps2 derg was good did not like a lot of the ps3 tittle cuz there lack large battles n the battle system was a bit shity n the load beofre battele is a shity thing now days they need to be more instens into a battle then instenly picking up item n forigin..oooh final fantasy remake of eight and nine…hope the next gen consle has more sapport for online rpg games like warcraft n games like star wars repulic online think yulll be able to cloud warcraft but wont u jus have like a video stream from the gaming server hosting the game buffering was always a shity thing playing concles games online welll that n the power of the system to handle the game

    • hgoel0974

      The PS4 could emulate every console ever made so far at full speed but as usual, Sony likes to under-use their hardware.

    • Darth Agnon

      Heh… two years on, and we now have trailers for the legendary FFVII remake.

    Don’t buy into hype. If a feature sounds good, don’t just buy it because of that. Most new features have bugs and don’t work as well as they’re hyped up to.

    A system is a system, it doesn’t matter the brand, specs or price. What matters above all else is the games. Don’t fall into the branding.

    Think before you invest any amount of money into anything. If you’re spending 400-600$ on something that has only one thing you want, find something else you want for less that will hold you over until more reasons to buy come along. -Very rarely- is it worth it to be an early buyer, and often times it’s better to be a late buyer, as was the case of the last generation. Early PS3’s YLOD’d, Early 360’s RROD’d, and the early PSP had a RAM upgrade. Don’t buy until you’re sure.

    • gunblade

      same with vita got new model coming but there concles modification were mostly due to the softmod sceen n hard mode seen so i heard welll the 360 hard a problem with overheathing wy ps3 came more populer but hard ware wise i would think i would prefer an xbox but game wise a ps3 n for werd crazy games a nintendo wii more hands on motion games was prety interesthing… but after they made the jasper in the elite xbox 360 xbox was jus a good as ps3…

  20. gunblade

    i guessing the start n select buttons or the long retacle button on by the r1 n r2 then there the thouch pad with the two input button on the side of it looks like the a stero or sumthing or is that for airflow intake herd sposed to get cool or sumthing the remote well neve mind look at the picture n the two botttun on the side of the touch pad r the start n select button looks like use mini usb to charge.. the blue light or blue part on the fron side of the controlers kinduf stows it off n makes it look werdly shity looks like the xbox 360 controlers a bit welll the underneath of the controllers looks a bit bulky….

      Gunblade – deciphering your text makes my head hurt

      • wololo

        Same here… I’d be interested to know more about gunblade’s background. Is he a native English speaker with a massive writing disability, or a foreign engineer who designed a weird version of google translate? It’s sad because when you do spend the time to decipher what he says, there is *some* interesting points in there

    This probably means that you’ll have to buy the PS3 games from the store again, despite having the discs. Sony doesn’t seem to learn from it’s mistakes, huh?

    • hgoel0974

      I think it does, apparently to them, the PSP and Vita trick worked out quite well, for us as well as them 😉

      Our exploits, their sales 😉

    • StepS

      well, at the very least they could have added a disk check… the drive should be supporting old disks. then the system can verify if it’s genuine and then offer to play the game using their service… the only problem could be a re-use, but if there’s any writable place on the disk, or an identification number, there would be no problem

    • StepS

      if every disk has its own unique ID, there would be no problem for Sony to only allow one account to play the game with this disk ID… simple because you must go online anyway.

    since theres an apu, can I assume all 8 gigs is available for the cpu and gpu? how will the x86 cpu address all 8? seems like there is going to have to be 3, at max, for cpu side and 5 for the gpu side, but then there is probably going to be 1 or 2 reserved for the system/the standby mode. I wish they elaborated more…
