This hasn't been as divisive as I expected.

Wow, I can't believe that this will help business more than it will hurt it. I don't know why Sony and Microsoft don't put a lot more promotion/emphasis on Games-On-Demand stuff. It's more convenient (if you have a decent hard drive), they can't be re-sold or borrowed, and the devs/pubs/console companies get all the $$$.

Yeah, that's the type of stuff I'd be interested in. I like being able to use Netflix and NHL Gamecenter and all that stuff, but I want them to focus on games, not apps.

I don't really care too much about the PS4 or the 720 until they come out/get reviewed.

According to Edge, the system “will ship with a redesigned controller which is the same size as an existing DualShock but features a small touchpad in place of the existing Select, Start and PS buttons. The tech is based on Vita’s rear touchpad, and is similarly responsive in use.”


I thought the touchscreen was going to compete with the Wii U

I'm okay with this.

Sony doesn't really have a track record of disappointing me, so I'll definitely be getting one.

Imagine if the big reveal is just some new games for the Vita. Or now you can buy even more games from the PSN.

Please no. Developers are doing good job getting as much as they can out of the old consoles, but they really do need to be upgraded. Battlefield 3 for console sucked somewhat due to limitations from the consoles themselves. I have it for 360 and PC and while I prefer playing on the 360 it's just too limited in comparison.

Think I'd rather just spend $400 on a nice graphics card.

The very IGN page you mention says that the PS4 is rumored to be more powerful than the new Xbox, so with all the directly contradictory information floating around it's probably useless to speculate the details at this moment.

Either way, I'll wait a couple years until the prices drop and get whichever console has better exclusives. I much prefer my PS3 to my 360 this generation, but the specs are less important to me than the games I can play them on.

O. Well I guess it's time to drop $800 on a new PSU, CPU, and GFX card so I can again feel ultra-superior.

Edit: If the PS4 is as more powerful compared to the Xbox 720 as the PS3 is compared to the 360, I don't think it will really matter. It would have to extremely outsell Xbox for Devs to really want to take advantage of that.

Also, if they go the VITA route and have no physical media, I don't think they're going to outsell anyone.

ps3 is not superior graphically to xbox 360. Halo 4 and Gears 3 looks better than anything on ps3 unless your are blind.

Xbox360 can't even touch PS3 character models. Dressing someone up in space marine gear is cheap character modelling.
