:) I work for something bigger than Sony, but I do have investor relations with this company you make 4k as giant tech for which humans aren’t ready and shall not touch makes me smile in reality it was created by humans not aliens yet. you say we can’t handle it with what we have right now it’s so big we have to change everything…. it’s not an atomic bomb, every innovation comes from what we already have nothing less or more. in reality it’s a lot simple than you say it is

Everything you just posted made little, if any sense at all.
It’s just gibberish.
“Something bigger than Sony”.
Your command of sentence structure
tells me otherwise.

I would say grammar is the least of the above’s problem. It is completely incoherent.
Talking about aliens and atomic bombs, and something about us not being able to handle it.
This is not a grammar issue. LOL

In my opinion, it’s a teaser for the announcement of the PS4.
I don’t think we will see the PS4 released this year, though. 2014 for sure.
I see it going down like this….
They announce the PS4 this month.
Show the PS4 off at E3 in June.
Then they make people’s heads explode when they reveal that “next-gen” titles were already shown at E3 last year, without anyone even realizing it. (Beyond Two Souls, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, Watch_Dogs, Star Wars 1313, etc.)

PS3 sucked really bad compared to the PS and PS2. PS3 only has a handfull of excellent JRPGs. Not a fan of modern casual QTE linear watered down games that are catered to the Angry Birds crowd (Ass Creed, CoD, Uncharted, DmC, modern Resident Evil, NG3, etc.). Games this gen have just sucked. No memorable Sony character mascots, and Nintendo continue to pwn your company, and they always will.
Sony, you have disappointed me and ashamed the Playstation brand.
Not going to buy your ShooterStation 4 / PewpewStation 4.

perhaps you must grow up a little before you’ll understand me 4k not gonna blow up and/or shoot at you with few chips and transistors on board and 200 GB bluray is more than good for it if its bigger it not cost effective dont you think?

This is it! This is it! Good call Sony! It’s happening!

Okay, the last thing I knew was that there was a conversation contemplating the continuance of blu-ray and the possible impact of 4K on the form factor of a “PS4″.
In an instant, I find myself in an alternate universe where a UN Atomic Oversight agent (IAEA) is telling me about aliens and atomic bombs.
This is where we are at. LOL

Ok WAR0979, I think you should research these things before you start talking about them. You don’t have to upgrade to a new disc format to release a new console. There are many other factors involved. Like processing power, ram, and hdd space. And the consoles are WAY behind the PC in basically every respect. That is why a new console would really be a good thing. And I think that if it is reasonably priced it would be successful.

Are you telling me the IAEA has weaponized the 4K HD ULTRA display for cost effectiveness?

This will either be an incredible, breath-taking reveal…or it could be ball busting teaser for E3 or any other convention sony could make or visit.

What do you think about this theory:
The PS4/ORBIS will be similar to the steam box dynamic, but 4K cloud gaming & media streaming. With less emphasis on a physical media drive, greater emphasis on CPU/GPU/RAM performance?
+ igorrocks2 on January 31st, 2013 at 11:13 pm said:
4K doesn’t require new type of media just upgraded existing media so did VITA and many others
+ Aeryn_James on January 31st, 2013 at 11:18 pm said:
A blu-ray drive cannot handle a non-compressed 4k file stream. This has been established. A compressed 4K stream is not a 4K stream.
4K upconvert ≠ 4K HD ULTRA
What is so hard for you to understand about this equation?
+ Aeryn_James on January 31st, 2013 at 11:19 pm said:
The Vita is not 4K

+ Aeryn_James on January 31st, 2013 at 11:22 pm said:
Do you know why Sony shipped it’s newest 80″ 4K displays with external hardrives containing 4K media files?
Answer: True 4K does not fit on a current physical media source (even with increased layers) without compression.

Don’t be shocked if the next gen ships without a disc drive.
+ neuropunk on January 31st, 2013 at 11:37 pm said:
Already upgraded to current gen with WiiU and 3DS.
I have no need for SuckStation 4 / CasualStation 4 / Pewpew ShooterStation 4. Instead I’m going with the company that keeps on providing the best funnest games, unlike Sony does these days. WTF happened to Sony? The PS3 library is so inferior to PS, PS2 and Nintendo systems.
PS3 = sucky QTEs, sucky linear games, sucky QTEs, sucky setpieces, sucky generic pewpew crap, sucky games that are trying to be movies (keep games games, keep games separate from movies. games are not movies, so stop trying)

People quit being idiots! It’s not PS4…. They already said there gonna let the other game console go first… And that has not happened yet… So it has nothing to do with PS4!
I’ve heard Rumors that they are going to a PAY-To-Play Online service to play games for PS4 so they might be releaseing it now on PS3 to make sure it’s set up and ready for when it arrives… So are ya Ready For Pay-To-Play Online?
Not me… I pay enough for the Internet service i use… I’m not paying extra to PLAY onLine!
So if this happens… The End Is Nigh!

The SXS is not 4k. It is HD,

That is what I was referring to. Cloud gaming.

Let us hope… No, let us pray… That it is PS4 with 8gb of GDR5 ram and one helluva graphics chip — And NOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo stupid tablet controller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if this really is a ps4/next gen console announcement ill be beyond disappointed.. i feel like the ps3 has only shown the tip of the ice berg… GUYS AND GALS LISTEN PEASE I BEG YOU… dont buy it day 1.. i bought a ps3 day 1, 60gb, 4 usb ports, memory card slots, and backwrd compatibility… $650 flushed down the toilet,, services and capabilities were removed and my ps3 got the YLOD in less then two years… which im sure sony designed it like that purpose.. the same exact happened to 2 of my friends and uncle.. 2 years and poof… i would wait for the ps4 *slim* ive had my slim for twice as long as my 1st ps3… PS4 SLIM!

I’m sorry but if it’s PS4 I won’t be buying, I just bought my PS3 3 years ago and it has much life still in it and many games to yet to be played. I don’t see how a new console is going to help out Sony when they are failing in the business of making money?!?! You need to work on software not hardware, the PS3 is a very powerful machine and I believe there is still much more that can be done with it and it would be very said to see a company give up and move on to another console, what happened to the 10 year life cycle? I don’t know I just think my PS3 is still brand new but hey maybe I’m wrong, I just know I won’t be forking out hundreds of dollars on another new console and starting all over once again. It’s really lame that you would simply give up on this wonderful machine and give us something we really don’t need. That’s just my opinion though…

It is not an equivalent. An HD camera is not comparable to a gaming console. To try to attempt a comparison is a stretch.

I prefer physical media. I am not advocating for a digital transition. 95% of my game purchases have been physical media, save for a rare few indie developers I want to support that can not afford physical publishing.
But the consumer base has been consistently endorsing the download format. Sony customers, Microsoft customers, Steam customers. It is happening whether we want it or not.
And with Sony buying GAIKAI and unveiling the 4K format, it is inevitable.
PC & NIntendo will probably be the last hold-outs. And they may hold onto a sizable market share if they do.
