Just farting out of my mouth here, but you know what I'd love to see in a console?

- Officially sanctioned homebrew software and games
- No paid license required to run your own code on your console
- Inbuilt media center with support for pirate-friendly formats, and easy integreation with network file shares/external HDD's
- Easily swappable HDD bay
- Less cocking around with profiles and such - if only I had like a card or some widget with an RFID chip or something which I could plug into the controller and it would have my saves/profile on it.
- Free online multiplayer service (cost is quite prohibitive in Australia, although I believe it has gone down recently)
- TV, and TV recording

Of course, there's just too much greed involved so nothing like that will ever happen.

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.

gingerjet: J. Frank Parnell: 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.

The very same PC that is dying off?


Oh Jeebus, can we PLEASE not do this?

5 star chef of tv dinners: 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 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.

WhyteRaven74: Mentat: 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, 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'll probably get one. I skipped out on the PS1-3 in favor of Microsoft and Nintendo, so nows the time to get in on the Sony exclusives, and being able to stream all the old games I missed will be nice, plus all the new titles. And it will give me more uses for my PS Vita, which I actually enjoy despite the lack of games.

Now it's Microsoft's turn to impress me

Beerguy: The Steam Box will conquer all!

That's cute that Steam thinks selling a console is going to replace the millions of installs on PCs. Why the hell would I spend more money to do something I can already do?

What's interesting is that homebrew stuff was a big deal in Japan for ages in part because developer decks were sold like regular consoles in Japan. Though with the advent of Android consoles, there's two on the way, get something where not only do you get homebrew those games have the means to sell a ton of copies if they're good.

I don't see what's so unrealistic about it.

I was hoping we could divorce console gaming and facebook.  I honestly don't know what I care about the least, requests for facebook games, or friends who post their console game accomplishments on facebook for all to see.

Count me in as one who is concerned about the ability to play used games on the PS4.  As for the comment someone made above about games not remaining forever on physical media, PS3 game disks are 50 gb.  First, I don't want to have to download an entire library of 50 gb plus games.  Secondly, I hate the idea of spending $60 for a non-physical game that I have to download first and could lose if something happened to my PS4.  The death of used games on the next gen game consoles would kill Gamestop as they would lose the only thing keeping them competitive with Walmart and other retail chains, and the reasoning that software companies are using, saying that Gamestop is making billions reselling used games and not cutting the software companies in on those profits is retarded.  That's no different than saying that all pawn shops owe movie companies money each time someone buys a pre-owned movie, or saying that when I bought my car from the used car dealership that the dealership owed Nissan a cut of the money.

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?

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.
