Playstation 4 to be sold worldwide this year.

Don’t know why it’s a different colour? Did you not read my other article ?!?!!?!?!*mad face*

Sony have done a great job with the PS4 this year, and I am very impressed with them, they have made a very clever move announcing it reasonably early in the year. Doing this allowed them to snatch up a few more indie games at GDC as Hgoel0974 reported on a previous article, Limbo is coming to Vita! YAY! I mean…… I’m a blogger, and must stay formal so I sound intelligent (snigger).

I am very glad Limbo is coming to the PlayStation Vita.

A GameStop exec. decided to tell the media that the console will be released worldwide, this year (2013 if you’re Doctor Who). He’s now been fired. (he hasn’t really)  Knowing the ridiculous demand for the PS4, it will be likely that they will sell out the console and then many people will be out of luck.

There are many video game shops that are taking pre-orders for the console, if you want to pre-order is, you can do with a quick search up on google, I would post a link, but I didn’t want to risk certain links not working in different countries (and then getting moaned at).

 

If you missed the PlayStation conference, PlayStation’s youtube channel compiled a 10 minute video of the highlights:

I decided to watch the IGN pre- show, where they talked about what they expect to see, and interviewing games developers. So I wasted 4 hours of my life, now if you don’t want to watch the full 2 hour presentation, the above video sums it up. I can do it aswell in 1 sentence. Here it goes:

The PS4 was announced.

 

Also, a few weeks ago when the /talk forums were updated to include PS4 – News & Rumours and also a Games section, Wololo opened a topic on if you will be getting it or not, being as the news that it will be released this year what’s your opinion on it, and vote here.

I have also created a poll about which PS4 title you will be most excited about, me? Infamous : Second Son :)

Here is a few more games that are on the PS4 to make you think about it;

 

 

The Doctor: A Time Lord from Gallifrey

It’s a pain to think that shops stock the PS4 weeks before release!

Did you watch the presentation? What’s you’re favourite feature about it?

Also, the theme song of the PlayStation 4 ad at the beginning of the presentation, was  Metric – Monster Hospital (MSTRKRFT remix)

Also, I have decided to create a poll on who you think its awesome. Here

Why do people have to be trolls can’t it be a simple answer. I’ve been on the scene a long time and this is the reason I never went on forums

    As much as I like Sony, their PS4 controller looks ugly… PS1 controller looked alright. PS2, was better. PS3 looked quite awesome with the jet plane triggers and usb cable (can connect it to pc too). PS4….meh..

    Not in the least bit excited. Sony are making a social network orientated console. If I wanted to socialize I would go out.

    I really do worry that the gaming scene is going down a very steep hill nowadays. I don’t know if facebook is to blame or if it’s the complacent younger generations.
    Regardless I miss the PS1 and 2, consoles that were made purely for playing games.

    1. Dockotis’s avatar

      Pururun, I agree with you on this. I don’t care to socialize on a console, or gaming in general =EXCEPT= if playing a multiplayer online game. I do agree that the PS1, and PS2 were completely game-centric. The Gamecube, and XBOX Original were as well… Old consoles didn’t care about anything but multiplayer and gaming, THAT is on of the many reasons why the games were unique and good, and with that, it’s also another reason why people enjoy emulators. They let us venture back into good games of yesterday for nostalgia, and for fun…

      XBOX720/PS4… Not caring too much…

        Well if you look at it this way, the jump from the PS1 to the PS2 was huge. The jump from the PS2 to the PS3 was huge. What’s so big about the transition from the PS3 to the PS4? Slightly better graphics, a ‘share’ button and the ability to ‘socialize’? Pffft, please. It’s all bullshit.

          Hardware wise:
          It has 16 times the RAM, an extra core CPU that is also easier to develop for, and some awesome little things that make a big difference (like downloading content and charging controllers while the system is powered off). There’s also the awesome feature where games are downloaded in sections so that they can be played while it’s still downloading, That definitely seems like a huge jump from the PS3 to the PS4.

          Software wise:
          Probably one of the most prominent software features, in my opinion, is that feature where you can sculpt your own models and do things with them. This not only demonstrates the power that the PS4 holds as a creative tool, it also shows us just how much more advanced the ‘gimmick’ of Playstation Move has gotten with the hardware jump. They took this ‘gimmick’ that people complained about and added an artistic and/or creative use to it so now the only ones left to call it a gimmick are those who are artistically and creatively illiterate (and not bragging or anything as I am not a great artist). Also, the app for iOS and Android devices that allows you to purchase something off the PSN and then download it straight to your PS4, whenever and wherever you are, that seems like a pretty big step from one system to the other and it doesn’t seem like something that the PS3 could be capable of unless you either go home and turn on your PS3 and use Remote Play with your Vita and start the system from a remote location, in which you would have to own both a smart phone and the Vita separately or have the Vita with that app installed using a 3G connection (or 4G if that rumor about the Vita Slim is true).

          As for QUALITY of graphics compared to the PS3, I’ll wait for a side by side comparison of, say Watch Dogs on the PS3 & PS4 to really make a decision there. I’d just go by user submitted 1080p gameplay videos, that way there isn’t as much of a chance that the setup is rigged to be biased between one or the other and if they do, it’d be much easier to tell. The quality is obviously much greater, but the main thing I can tell that’s improved are lighting, movement, and smoothness of edges. Also, I wouldn’t accept any excuses for games in 720p unless there’s possibly a 720p choice for the download counterparts as to save time and space.

          As for the socialize aspects, I can see potential in being able to give live feeds or message boards to actual game publishers about their games, things that are wrong, and what needs to be fixed. The fact that it’s easier to communicate with friends is just a plus. Having a direct link between the consumer and the developer could really open the eyes of some pretty blind companies *coughcoughsquareenixcough*… Not only could better patches be released for game destroying glitches, things like better DLC or even creative ideas for prequels and sequels for game titles could be dramatically improved. I would LOVE to have something on the PS3 where I could bring up a live feed or message board that would go directly towards the people behind games like Amy and the second Naughty Bear, both of them have some pretty terrible game breaking glitches that STILL need fixed. Amy came out with a patch that fixed some glitches, but then caused an even worse one. Amazing!

          So, there’s nothing astonishingly great between the PS3 and the PS4? This is just from a collection og information that was released and speculation on possibility based on that information given, so who knows what else they have for us to hear about it.

            That’s not enough for a next-gen console. Most of it was already invented. I expect a lot from a multi-billion dollar corporation. Invent some new features that no one else has. “Socialize”, no thanks, I have a Facebook account. “Share”, I have a YouTube account. “Ice-cream cone dildo controller”, I hate that… I’m pretty sure everyone else does too. Background download is already on the 360. So is the ‘download games from app’ thing. It’s all copy/paste.

            I want to see new and innovative things. Look at Illumi-room for example. Where have you seen something like that?

      That’s like saying PS Vita is no different than psp. In reality, if you actually researched, the features on the controller alone, outshine what we have already. If your point was valid we would all be on 10 year old compaq’s.

    I think I want the drugs this writer is using. The PS4 announcement involved showing a bunch of multiplatform games, a bunch of old people heads, trailers from previous shows and a controller. Not even the console was shown.

    So, how is this a great job?
    I’ll probably get an xbox next gen, or just stick to a PC, since that is what these consoles are.

    I’m on the fence about the PS4 myself.

    On the one hand, the hardware is disappointing. Yes, I know it is 2,465x more flops than the PS3, but it is still significantly less powerful than a high end PC (the vid card is last year’s tech, and the CPU is made for netbooks). The memory is ample and DDR5, but that is only when used by the GPU. When used by the CPU, it runs at DDR3 speeds. All of this has been borne out by the UE4 demo “Elemental,” which looked downright ugly at times when running on a PS4.

    On the other hand, we are reaching a point of diminishing returns with graphics. Looks at the FOX Engine which runs on PS3/ 360. Imagine what they could do with better hardware. If I weren’t comparing the PS4 to a PC running a GTX 680 with a tech demo designed to push the envelope, would I notice? I’m not sure.

    As far as the controller, camera, social media integration, and software downloading go, I couldn’t care less. A controller is a controller. As long as I don’t have to waggle it at my TV, I just don’t care. The rest of the “features” just sound like PS Home: neat sounding crap for a feature sheet that I will never use.

      the ps home share video playback thing dont thinki would be using to much my self doesnt make to much sense driving a car n triing to recored a video in real life so guess wy wont be to smart for racing and recodering in a video game but i guess after the race or sum thing like that but not to much live game video edithing..yea the ram was nice but i guess the cpu was to save since the thing was like on all the time in hibernation mode wen turned off..i would have jus had a tree core board basicly a ps3 and two pc probly xenon.. and around 32 ram cost a lot but still nice..the ps3 would be basicly the fat so it can still run ps2 an outher os but then u got like the outher two cores one beffing up the ps3 hardware an the outher that is basicly the ps4 guess the cores would have to be like a i5 and an xenon…

        Is English a second language? Judas Priest, man!

        What is “32 ram?” In the hard sciences, we have this thing called “units of measurement.” I’m going to assume you meant 32 GB of RAM. That would be an absurd amount of RAM. My PC has 8 GB of RAM and 2 GB of vRAM, and it runs flawlessly. The PS4 OS will have a smaller footprint than Windows, so it makes even less sense in this context. 8 GB of unified RAM is plenty.

        Your discussion of CPUs is so mind boggling as to be nearly impossible to decipher. From what I can tell, you want a three core CPU, where one is a PS2 Emotion Engine, one is a Cell broadband engine, and one is either an i5 or a Xenon (Microsoft’s proprietary XBox 360 CPU). I don’t even know where to begin with this.

        You are not making a strong case for including headsets in every PS4.

    Since better hardware, better graphics, and social network were mentioned on the new PS4, Then I hope a monster hunter frontier version for this console be release. If that happened I wish to see all the monsters available in all the mh series with some additional features/gimmick that other mh series doesn’t have and more interactive concept just like on MMORPG. If that happens maybe I would consider buying this console… What do you think?…
