Ps4

I'm interested to see what this new Ps4 will have to offer and the price tag that will come with it. I would like to get one because they offer the Sunday ticket so that's a +

Re: Ps4

It appears to have a better memory and processor but as for the rest I am still not impressed yet. Social media and gaming??? Not what I'm looking for. Show me 4K movie streaming access and maybe I will consider. PS3 compatible, no....big negative.

I agree I'm not interested in the social media part

Just read $430/$530 offering two different platforms. Only rumor at this point though.

Re: Ps4

It looks to me like it will be very compatible with the previous playstations. It is just that you will have to use cloud services to do so. I am assuming Gaikai is going to be free, but I could be wrong. I was kind of hoping for a bigger increase in graphics, but I understand that it costs a lot of money to do that. I will probably wait for the system to drop into the 300-400 price range. I got my first playstation free with the tv I bought, and now I am hooked. I haven't played in quite some time because the games I play make you lose your life. It is sad when you are going to work all day and then play modern warfare at night when I should be sleeping.

Re: Ps4

I bought my PS3 last year, and I still have a ton of PS3 titles to play through, before I migrate over to a PS4 that is not compatible with the PS3. Or if they do offer backwards compatibility, it will probably have an expiration date like the PS3 did with the PS2 titles.

RIPOFF! But I'm sure the next Xbox will do the same thing.

From their cloud service yes but the physical disc no. That's what I read anyway.
