So... PS4 announcement today?
Video games are a fond memory for me. I don't even play them anymore, but I can't help but check whats new in the gaming world. Is Sony going to announce the PS4 today? Maybe... Will it outperform my computer? Probably not...

Why do I care? Don't know, but I am excite!

PS4 and Xbox whatever it's going to be called, will be out later this year.

The birth of a new console generation and the death of the second hand games market.

RE: So... PS4 announcement today?
Used game market is bullshit anyway... in Canada,

1. Newer used games are $55, while brand new games are $60.
2. Older used games are $20-25, while older brand new games are $20-30.
3. Digital downloads on time-limited sales can see 50-80% off (ex. steam)

The only downside remaining is that once you play the game, you can't sell it. If we see major discounts on digital sales, and cheaper pricing on hard copy sales, this shouldn't be an issue. Everybody still wins. The developers don't lose money through sale of used games, and we see lower initial prices for games.

I watched it, I think all this social media integration shit is so dumb. It had a few cool things but I wasn't really impressed.

Share button? Why Sony?!

I guess it doesn't matter, the known specs are less impressive than my current desktop, and its already aging. I just wish PC games had better support. By the time GTA4 was released for PC, there was no online community. I had to play it on console.

RE: So... PS4 announcement today?
The new playstation is quite exciting with its cloud based services. I think this is the heralding of the future which will be cloud computing. Im gonna hazard a guess that the playstation 5 wont have an optical disc drive, maybe sold as a peripheral but not inbuilt.

Sony have said that their games will be able to be played across many platforms via the cloud... so you can play your bought PS4 games on a smartphone or tablet (hence removing the need for the actual console in some regards allready)

I dont think specs will play a big part in the far future, not in the home as much anyway. As long as you have a receiver and a half decent internet connection then your whole desktop/games console will be virtualized on a cloud server.

So much for reaction time... I still use a wired mouse because the lag in wireless is noticable. I can't imagine that cloud gaming is going to be very good. At least not yet.
