    I'd laugh if this would be way similar to Nintendo! This is probably a rumor, but be sure to check the source out! If this is true, then I hope they don't make this expensive! The next generation of consoles, are getting really expensive. Rich gamers would be able to afford this, and average gamers.. 2-4 years later.

    the wii u is about 300$, which, for a next gen console, is hardly a terrible thing.
    However, sony is notorious for TERRIBLE launch day prices, so I'm interested to see launch price.
    As for the so called touch screen controller... no comment...

    What was the last innovative thing Sony did for their consoles, besides copying Nintendo controllers...? Unless you count copying controllers, but adding two of everything (two sticks, two sets of LR, two memory card slots to be original D:

    I thing the PSP connectivity with PS...3 was it? was the only original thing I can think of.

    Nintendo did that with the N64 and Gameboy and after that you had the GBA and Gamecube.

    Wasn't that for playing handheld stuff on the big screen? I thought the PS3-PSP was stuff was playing PS3 stuff via the PSP? Nintendo hasn't gone that far yet. But I haven't bought a Sony system or game since the PS1, so I only overhear from news headings.

    Probably?

    People can spin all the rumors they want to boost their traffic with little to no accountability. The console is most likely going to be announced sometime soon; it's not so hard to ignore the wild claims and wait until then.

    I don't really know that Sony can afford to release anything but a well-priced, traditional console, honestly. I'd love to see innovation, sure, but I don't think they've been posting the kind of numbers that encourage that; they tried to be innovative with the Vita and that wasn't a success by any means (although I will say the Vita was one of about three gaming devices I've grabbed during the year of its US release, the other two being the Wii and the Game Boy Color).

    • Da fuq is this shit?! They have a struggling portable and instead of being smart and putting the Vita in a bundle with the Quatro, they decide to rip Nintendo and make a tablet controller?! #DumbAsses

    Poor Sony. I don't foresee them making much money from PS4.... but that's only due to how bad Vita is doing.

    I doubt this is true, it's too terrible a business move by Sony. Can they really afford to create this controller? Does the estimated profit outweigh the cost? Sony should make a relatively cheap to produce, well priced console if they want to stay afloat. A tablet controller is too much risk for them in my eyes.

    It may be true, it may not. Either way I'm glad to see Sony trying something new but I do hate that the Wii U is called a "gimmick" and if Sony makes a similar controller somehow it is innovative for them but not Nintendo.

    What? PS3 games on PSP? I remember that feature went to the Vita, so it's PS3 --> Vita.

    Ah, that's it then. Still, I don't think Nintendo's gone that way. Closest you can call that would be the WiiU I guess :o
