    Always online would be a huge disappoint for me if that rumour is at all true.

    As I already said for PS4: I hope to see this compatible with G27 steering wheel. I don't know if I'm wrong, but I think that DirectInput means more compatibility with third party gear than XInput.

    Why? What you want to see and think that will not come to Xbox?

    The PS4 announcement had some pretty nice implementation of features the console will have and I must admit that it got me very interested in revisiting the home consoles again (haven't owned one since PS2) so this announcement will need to be very very impressive to sway me from the sony bandwagon.

    If you skipped the whole 360/PS3/Wii generation and used a powerful PC, you lost about about 30 really good games (that you can play in near future) and saved tons of money. I can say that was a wise decision.

    IDK but the place doesn't look too convincing. I mean too tiny/small IMO

    I'm actually really looking forward to this, not so much for the console itself, but more because I'm damn tired about all the rumors and speculation surrounding the console. At least we'll actually know what to expect after this.

    They can fit a lot of press in that building.
    Remember this is a press event not public (attendance wise).

    I think it will be all hardware focused today with 1 or 2 games then the rest will be shown at E3.

    Personally I'm really excited even though I'm pretty dead set on getting a PS4. This only happens once or twice a decade and I remember exactly where I was watching the 360 reveal and then picking it up at 6am on launch day!

    I probably will do that tbh, when the PS4 comes out I prolly will get a cheap PS3 because most of the games I've been interested to play have been on that (LBP2, MGS4 in particular) but that's another reason the new xbox could sway me here if it has backwards compatibility. Nintendo have always done this and its always been amazing to me to be able to play my DS games on 3DS but I didn't wanna get the Wii-u for that reason is because it looks awful.

    Yeah but I don't think the stage in-there will be too big. Also don't think there's space for big screens in there.

    I mean is the reveal of a "New Generation"

    Because the size of a building determines how the reveal will be done?
