So no more Cell processor, instead a consumer grade x86 processor. Bright move Sony.

Well, the developers biatched up a storm about having to program on the Cell.

That's because Sony didn't bother offering much in the way of guidance and basically said they weren't going to tell them how to do stuff when it launched.

No backwards compatibility, no care.

I visited a couple of various liveblogs about it and got halfw... Zzzzzzzzz. sorry, drifted off.

Hey! isn't Archer on tonight?

I love how they made it seem like using standard PC parts in a console was a revolutionary concept. Wasn't that the whole point behind the original X-Box?
 
2013-02-20 08:57:57 PM  
I saw some things that were a little interesting but nothing that blew my socks off.  Still concerned about the used games element though.  Also, the price is still pending.  Overall, I will give it  a wait and see approach for now.

Final score: C

I played all of three games on the PS3 and two of those were versions of Rock Band.  It's a hell of a blu-ray player, though.

Doesn't "revealed" imply people actually saw one?

This just in: Sony reinvents the mini-ITX PC architecture.  Just with a restrictive BIOS and OS.
 
2013-02-20 10:24:20 PM  
The only even remotely interesting aspect to this thing is its use of DDR5, which means a huge channel for data transfers between the APU (graphics) and CPU cores. Standard PCs will have that in another year or two anyway, and beyond that the proposed AMD processor is decidedly modest by current standards.

All of that means that PC gaming is looking at at least another five or six years of being retarded (in its actual, literal definition) by console hardware.
 
2013-02-20 10:27:03 PM  
Surprised by the amount of hate in this thread. I'm actually pretty excited to see where they go from here. Being able to stream games to your Vita (or hopefully other mobile devices since, well, who owns a Vita) is interesting. The whole 'Share' aspect is appealing to me, but I also have friends I can pass clips back and forth with. Demoing the first hour of any game is awesome.

The presentation was an E3 quality show. Lots of details, lots of info, and a surprisingly large amount of gameplay footage.

The most interesting thing about this is that it heralds the death of the console as we've known it and cements the future dominance of the glorious PC master race.

No, it's because programming for the Cell was akin to competing against an asian autistic kid in accurately reproducing Mozart on the piano. Pointless, confusing and at the end of the day, you gained very little in the process.

I think its cute you believe that games will continue to be delivered via physical media.  That Gamestop you love so much?  In a year or two that space will be full of halloween costumes or christmas trees.

And nothing revealed really appeals to me.

Sorry, I play games for my enjoyment, not for sharing videos of my gameplay with anyone/everyone. I could care less about the sharability of myself or my gameplay. I care about the quality of the game I play, and my ability to at least recoup some of the cost for a game that I am either done with or found lackluster compared to reviews or expectations (aliens: colonial marines, anyone?).

Lack of release date, pricing, or more detailed specs makes having your own press conference kind of pointless.
 
2013-02-20 10:41:49 PM  
Would have been nice to have a comments thread during the well publicized press conference. The sports tab get wrestling and champions league and we geeks can't get a comments thread for major console releases?

This. Messages popping up on screen? Sharing? Automatically gets friends lists? I hope you can turn all that shiat off with one option, because I don't want anything to do with it.

Want Second Son, iffy on Witness, most of the other stuff I don't care about one whit.

I see no future in streaming games, which seems to be a big part of the backwards compatibility. Watching the damn live conference was horrible and I can't imagine having a ton of users on Sony's servers. Not to mention there just isn't enough bandwidth (yet) for this to be worth while. Graphics on streaming games = no good.

I can't wait until Nintendo's offerings at e3. New 1st party titles that will be worth while.

Hoping that Valve actually creates and releases the steam box, as well. That will be awesome not only for console gamers, but huge for PC gamers as well.

It has wireless (b/g/n), and the didn't announce storage space.

Have any more bright comments you'd like to make?
 
2013-02-20 10:49:50 PM  
A lot of the social networking aspects were lame, but I did like some of the game reveals.   I'm most curious about this one:

Deep Down (working title)

Thought it was a pre-rendered cinematic at first, but you can see the HUD.  I can't figure out if it's an action adventure game or what.  I thought that maybe it was Dragon's Dogma 2 (Deep Down / Dragon's Dogma), but the email thing at the end threw me off.

Kind of like the sports threads...

But beyond that I'm sure there would be done interesting talk. There was some interesting technical quirks to talk about as well as the game trailers. The Blizzard time would have been awesome reaction post time. I think it would have been entertaining to reactively respond and talk about the event while it was live.

And honestly is this thread much better than what you'd expect during the event?

I don't think I'm going to get the next Sony system.

Graphically, this is going to be similar to the new Xbox and I like the controller and the few exclusives that MS has in their pocket.
So I think I'm going to go with 1 system next gen and that's going to be the Xbox (whatever).

Plus, the kids have fun with the Kinect (thanks to Double Fine). So an improved system with Kinect 2 built in and those better MS designed Controllers are the win for me.

Sure, but no game really uses more than that yet, even with Windows eating up some.

meh.  I do my share of downloading games but physical media is still king right now.  I do rather enjoy just occasionally sweeping gamestop for a lower price random game.  I found some true gems doing that.  It would be nice if they didn't ban used games but it's coming and there isn't anything I can (or anyone else) can do about it.  I honestly don't get the gamestop hate on fark.  Sure, some people have bad experiences but I have a really nice store near me I go to.
