Playstation 4

Post  mrcrowley24 on Thu Feb 21, 2013 9:34 pm



So the PS4 was announced yesterday. What does everyone think? Although the console itself and pricing wasnt released, the controller was as well as details about the hardware. Im glad they are calling it the PS4 and not orbis and I like the look of the controller, it looks like a nice fit and continues the evolution of the PS controller. Hardware sounds impressive and the things that you can do with it. I dont like that there is no backwards compatibility and that they will probably charge for Gaikai (a streaming service), Ive spent thousands of dollars on PS3 games and my PS3 will not last forever (lets face it, Sony is no Nintendo!), so I will have these useless discs lying around. Sounds like its easier to develop for so hopefully we wont get the problems that faced the PS3 throughout most of its life. A new Killzone and infamous games were announced and although this is only early days and the first few years of a new consoles life is when developers get used to the new hardware, I thought that the graphics didnt look really "next gen". I remember when videos for PS3 games when it was announced and the graphics blew me away.

Anyways, what does everyone else think? It will be out before Christmas probably and shouldnt cost more than the PS3 did. I am generally happy with it and look forward to E3 where the actual console and pricing should be announced.

I read a little bit of it.
TBH though, I dont see the difference between 720p and 1080p movies either, so a PS4 with no backwards compatibility doesn't really do anything for me at this stage.
As with you, I have heaps of PS3 games already which I haven't nearly played through yet.. I'll be giving it a miss for a few years...unless there is a game that is exclusive to PS4 that I really really really want lol.

The actual reason I got a PS3 was because GTAIV was on it...which turned out to be disappointing haha.

It sure was (GTA4), I cant believe how dated the graphics became within a few months of release. All the reviewers loved it and gave it rave reviews too. GTA5 looks promising though!Smile

I think the biggest problem I had with GTA4, and this is very petty, is the characters were European lol. It didnt appeal to me at all.
I bought it again a year ago for about $15 and it still sucks haha.

GTAV does look good, it can't be any worse right? lol

Yeah even though I hated GTA4 I will get GTA5, I think it looks pretty good and I always have enjoyed the GTA universe.

I'll get one, not sold on everything with it yet.
I think I'll wait until 6 months in before purchasing it though.

I figure since I have a slim ps3 in the bedroom and an older fatty in the lounge, then maybe I can work a deal for a ps4 to replace my old one haha. I've heard my work may be stocking ps4's on release..just a wild rumour

You'll see I have that name on fb. I pretty much own that username on the Internet (except for twitter, some mod Angy has it!)
It's a word I made up and started using. I used it in all my YouTube videos as an intro when I was doing them.
Kinda just stuck around.
I don't work for westpac anymore so capnwpac can't stay haha.
Could do capnpac I guess....

Haha I wish. I often told stupid US peeps online that it was because I'm a captain in the western pacific division of the Australian army Corps.

But no.... I was school captain, and started work at westpac when I made my ebay name, so it's been that since.

They probably believed it because after seeing you fly they knew there was no way you were a captain in the airforce....

I'm doing plenty of overtime at work in preparation for the no doubt expensive December I'll have. I know I say I'll wait 6 months.... But no doubt I end up getting ps4 on release...

well E3 was today and ehre are the main points:

- Will cost $399 in USA, that will probably come to $500 (a clear $100 cheaper than xbox)
- It allows second hand gaming, no always online DRM.
- To play online games you have to be a PS+ member.
- Console was revealed, will let you google it, looks like an angled PS2.
- 500 gb HDD.
- A slew of games, both exclusive and across the board are indevelopment for it.

All the gaming sites are are sony won E3 due to its stance on second hand gaming and the fact that it will be cheaper than xbox.

What does everyone think?

Thanks Ryno!
Got my pre-order down. $549 the official price in Australia. That's $55 a fortnight between now and start of November, easy as.

EB are counting 50% extra trade in value towards anything traded in for a ps4 pre-order until Sunday, everyone get in on that!

As long as you keep your ps3 along with a downloaded copy of warhawk thats the main thing! Im getting really exicted abou the ps4 hey. Saw a trailer of Infamous 3 the other day and graphics look really good. In general, the first couple of years of a consoles's life give average graphic quality (play resistance to see what im talking about) as the developers are still testing their development skills, but PS4 graphics are looking real good indeed!
