    I just finished watching the live stream and it was just meh. They didn't even show the console or price or release date which makes me believe this was just a rushed presentation to showcase the potential of the console ahead of the new XBOX announcement next month.

    What's new :

    - Lots of social interaction. You can let your friends watch your game play while you are playing, they can even help you out if you so desire.

    - Sharing. You can record your gameplay and share it with all your friends.

    - Better game speed. Booting times will be virtually unnoticeable, game progression will always remain on RAM. You can download a game and start playing before it finishes while it continues downloading.

    - Native integration with PSVita. You can continue playing on your Vita just like on the Wii U but unlike the Wii U you I highly doubt the PS4 will come with a Vita.

    - New graphic interface on the OS that looks more like a rip off of the XBOX's UI.

    - Over 30 000 polygons per character with high detailed graphics and physics. Honestly the graphics were pretty damn good but this is not 1999 anymore, you get over those fairly quickly nowadays.

    - The remote looks exactly the same with a little tiny screen in the center...nough said.

    - It won't be backwards compatible so you can only play PS1, PS2 and PS3 games if you download them from PSN. No word on whether or not the PS4 will support hard media at all.

    All things considered, you're better off waiting for the new XBOX

    I really do not see the point. I have a PS3 it seems fine. I guess we just need to keep moving to make better money for the economy.

    I was mad, just mad. Guess we will have to wait till June

    BTW you forgot to mention one of the new features that PS4 owners will be able to share their gameplay stream with friends, even giving their peers the ability remotely take control of the game to help them get through a tough spot.

    Pass and for all the usual reasons. Don't care about online social interaction. Games are too expensive. I like my PS3 just fine; it's a decent blu ray player. And when is a new Kingdom Hearts ever going to come out?

    It's about time new consoles are coming out. The current ageing consoles are the reason why the video game industry is sinking.

    Honestly, the biggest mistake was the fact that you cannot play old PS games for free. That would probably hurt companies like Gamestop but we'll wait and see what happens. They might protest and refuse to sell PS4 or their games icon_evil.gif

    I love my PS3 slim! I wouldn't trade it for the world! I just can't see paying $400-$500 on a brand new system that probably won't even let us playing our old PS3 games on it. And I like to buy the actual game from BB not online.

    I'm really excited about this.

    The hardware specs alone get me hard but I like the little innovations Sony has baked into the system.

    I think the share feature is going to be a big deal, especially if it's extended to other devices. Plus the fact that you can play games as you download them sounds awesome.

    The controller looks a tad 80's to me for some reason but other than that I have no complaints !

    I'm a Sony fan, but I was underwhelmed. Facebook-access, sharing of game videos, and cloud gaming don't excite me for this console. I liked that they announced 'Infamous: Second Son', but that was about it. Not showing the actual console was the icon_mad.gif

    I remember creating a 3d character for Half life the limit was about 1500 or you'd lag!

    That's really detailed.. Looks even more human than human icon_smile.gif

    Sony spent more time congratulating them on their process for getting to the PS4 then telling us about the features. Sony needs to take a lesson from Apple's new product announcements.

    That being said, I'll wait to see what XB has before deciding.

    They didn't show the console? That's... standard. Took nintendo ages to show the actual Nintendo Wii U console. And the graphics doesn't really seem that amazing I bet the PS3 could produce something similar.

    Seems pretty cool actually. Though, I'm still waiting for Xbox announcement.

    Also, never be ashamed of a Final Fantasy boner!

    I believe it is the first time ever a game company books a conference to announce their next gen console and it does not show what the console looks like.

    Not really feeling the PS4 yet. Looking at the things going into it make me fear a price tag of $700. All I see is a PS3 with more power and that will cost more cash. The graphics look impressive but honestly how much do I care for looks over game play. Not saying the games will not be fun but they could do the same games with less powerful graphics for less cash. The PS3 has awesome graphics already and is still not cheap. I am wondering if the Wii U might bridge the divide more this round then before. The Wii didnt sold really well and the Wii U is basically a much better powered Wii with a tablet. Just seems like a better deal at a better price.

    Third party platforms will decide a lot and the nextbox. All depends on if third parties invest money into developing games that will be highly powered enough that conversions for the Wii U are drastically different. I the nextbox chooses the middle road then that could cause the Wii U to pick up more third party games.
