Agree on the games. Part of the reason that PS was so great was the quality of games that they offered.

I think you just became my favorite poster. KH3 and FF7&10 remakes, since they can't make any new FF any good.

A share button on the controller? Whatever. I just hope it's not something I hit by accident and then have to exit out of 50 screens to get back to the game..

This is a pretty dead accurate portrayal of the conference for those of you who missed it. Square Enix can also go suck one. No one wants your damn KH prequels or ****** sequels to FF13.

Well didn't XBox do it with the 360 first anyway? At least with the PS3 they initially made it backwards compatable.

Really though, I understand why they wouldn't in the long run. But if you do it and just not make any new games for PS3, it won't really hurt sales or anything of PS4 and consumers feel all warm and fuzzy knowing we can play Uncharted any time we want without hooking up the PS3.

That said, I'm really meh so far on the info that's come out. I'll probably wait a year before I got another system like I did when PS3 came out.

I'm in no hurry, either. I have a hardware backwards compatible PS3. So I'm fairly spoiled, I guess.

Yeah for me to buy a new system on release day, it has to ship with a game that I need to play right away. Nothing they showed last night gave me that impression (although that could very well change).

Being basically a PC is a pretty bold move from Sony, but a necessary one as the gaming console market is no longer in a position to be peddling proprietary hardware like it once could. It's a very safe measure to go x86 as it's a platform the PC obviously lives with and the next Xbox will likely go with as well (unless Microsoft go all ARM on us - pro tip, Windows 8 can support ARM natively. Hrmm.).

It is a little funny though how much of a PC it is. Even though the architecture of the hardware was always pretty much transparent to the end user, there's something a little odd about a Sony Playstation being almost entirely defined by everything except its unique hardware. The difference between a PS4 and, say, Dell deciding one day to build a standard PC and call it a snazzy name and somehow get a whole bunch of developers to commit to is basically down to branding and aesthetics. Somehow, that makes the PS4 seem trivial and unstable - that it could be replaced very quickly by a competitor with a good marketing strategy and a lot of pull - but in reality it was the best approach.

And of course, Sony's efforts now will go towards arbitrarily obfuscating the OS and firmware that the hardware runs so it is locked down and "unique" enough that a competitor can't just roll out a superior bit of kit 6 months afterwards that runs PS4 games, so it will obviously differ from PC in that regard.

That's why there's no BC for the PS4. The architecture is too different from the PS3. It would take a lot more power and money.

It'd be great if either would just roll out a software package for PC so we could run a Virtual PS4/720 on our machines.

I'm interested in seeing how Steambox changes things.

So I was just reading about PS4 and they mention the cloud storage company that Sony recently bought, and that rather than building in backwards compatability to the actual system, they could use that as a means for playing older games. Not sure how that would work, but an interesting idea if possible.

They also mentioned that you could play any game on your handheld device too. Nice try Sony but I still won't buy one of your handheld devices.

"Gaming as a Service" has been toyed with for a while now. OnLive being the most notable name. In this case the plan seems to be to deliver PS3 backwards compatibility as a service, meaning the processing is done at their end.

Personally I can't fathom how the latency between controller action and screen result going from nanoseconds on a purely local machine to at least 50ms or so over the Internet could be tolerable, but there is a lot of weight behind this concept as the future of gaming. Nvidia seem keen on it.

I'm interested in seeing how Steambox changes things.
Yeah, I'm very interested in the Steam Box. Best part about it is that you'll be ale to upgrade it like a PC rather than waiting another 7+ years for a new console to come out. PC Gaming is coming back!

I took a dump like half an hour ago. It was pretty nice. Felt relieved afterward. If my toilet had social media integration, I wouldn't have had to type all of this out, saving me valuable time that could be better spent fiddling with my naughty bits. Can't argue against that.

They will never stop pushing Vita. I don't know anyone that has one and have never seen one outside of the display case.
