    Sony hasn't destroyed anything. Their reputation is still marred by their hacked fiasco. I will never trust Sony again, and if they are 'rushing' to release ahead of the new Xbox and the WiiU, it shows they are scared at the competition. Just my two pieces-o-eight.

    ... Oh wait, it's Valwin posting.... Inb4DERP didn't read who posted.

    I won't be buying Sony or Microsoft this time around if they want to make games unable to be resold.

    If it doesn't have all of that always-online DRM bullshit and its under 500$ I might get it.
    But if it does, it looks like Nintendo will be the only company I will be supporting next-gen.

    If the official statement from Microsoft is worth anything, then yeah. If Sony does release a PS4 this year, it will be ahead of the next Xbox, since there won't be a new Xbox this year.

    Edit: Also, Sega really needs to get back in the console business. Just sayin.

    Umm, did Sony/Microsoft troll?

    They said the PS4/720 would not be in this year's E3. (or was that just microsoft...?)

    This I find hard to believe, but it's in line with wanting to rush out a new console as soon as possible. They wouldn't have time to design/manufacture a custom processor, and would have to make do with what's available.

    Although reading the rest it seems Sony/Microsoft haven't confirmed yet.

    If the rumours are true about the 24-core processor I don't want to see the launch price tag for the PS4. (although with the 720 it's 'probably' going to be similar, being a next-gen console)

    Sony has learned their lesson on pricing. The PS3 would probably be in a much higher standing than it is now if it didn't launch at $600. People thought the Vita was going to be atrociously overpriced but at $250, it was a steal. Even if it means they make little profit off console sales or even lose cash on console sales, they'll make the next PS3 affordable. I'd say under $500 is a reasonable assumption.

    I see Sony did in fact "learn" their lesson after seeing the PS Vita Passport Program; Pay for what you already paid for. :lol:

    *In my best valley girl impression* Uh, AMD...Ewwwww!

    But seriously guys, it looks like it's just going to be a consolized PC. I didn't look outside of Nintendo this generation and I don't see myself doing so next generation either. If I want to play PC games I've got a PC for that already.

    Oh no, is Sony planning to pull a Wii U with PS4-Vita connectivity?

    It won't work. The secret to a successful gimmick is not making it sold separately. Developers don't want to build their games around a function that only a small fraction of the market can take advantage of.

    So what RchUncleSkeleton?

    Either the CEO of Sony France is wrong, or these rumours are. Conflicting sources.

    I highly doubt it, everyone is starting to copy from each other.

    Creativity is dying.

    Seriously, this is just a rumor. I'm taking this with a grain of salt. E3 will provide some facts. Something that this thread lacks.

    Gotta love them rumors. Do people honestly take all these as fact? For example the processor talk is just pure speculation: "We think we have a CELL CPU, oh wait no we don't. We have an AMD CPU. No we don't. We have an Inter CPU. No we don't. Wait what do we have again?"

    I'll just wait for at least some kind of dev units or announcements (officialer the better).

    It'll probably just be an optional feature, like they've always done in the past. It's not exactly going to be like the Wii-U is doing.
