Maybe one of those old game-share people that caused the rest of us honest folk to get limited to 2 activated PS3 for games, and just 1 for video?

I have a couple extra accounts just because I wanted to reserve gamertags that I thought were funny, but never use them. I do have another account name, for my EU account, though. But all us trophy ‘hos can only use one main account. Need to keep that count increasing.

I love how I have 3 PS3s, a PS Vita, PSP, been a PSN Plus member since day 1 with no lapse in my account ever and on auto-renew, and I got no loyalty voucher. How does that happen?

Am I the only one who isn’t really expecting PS4?
I mean… I’m ready for the announcement, but I just belive it won’t be here this year. I see PS3 doing too good like to launch it this year. I’m probably wrong though.

If they are to say the PS4 is coming, I highly doubt they would release the specs.

They didn’t say anything about specs when they announced the Vita.
So I think it’ll be the same here.

For the processor of the PS4.

Some rumours claims it’s going to have a AMD based processor. I don’t know which 1 it will be, but I would recommend going with an Intel core processor instead.

Intel core processor and fast, efficient and they last long.
Why do you think Apple uses them for their MACs? Because it works.
So does Sony Viao Laptops, they use Intel core processors. And they usually last a long time.

We don’t want to have something that will bug constantly or that will break too often.

I would recommend going with an intel based processor, they are much smoother and they last longer.

Alternatively, you could also go with the PowerXCell i8, which is an enhanced version of the PS3′s Cell broadband engine. Of course, that processor is a beast,
Of course, that depends of the production cost/price.

I don’t like the new report today by 1up.com stating that the new PS console will have a price tag of $429 for the basic and $529 for the premium this is way too high. Sorry but I will not be picking it up if this is the case. I felt like when I dropped $600 on the 60GB back in 06 it was too high but I got it since I never had a new console when it was first released. Hopefully 1up.com has there information wrong. Also it stated that the next console will have a online service where you have to pay to play online that’s ok with me as long as it is included for plus members. Lets wait until tonight and see what unfolds.

who knows what the criteria was to get the $10 code … I got one, & with my 2 Vitas / 2 PSPs & PS3, I’m glad to have this nice touch … I also have a lot on the HDD – both digital & retail, as well as a number of preorder bonus items … not sure how the loyalty program works though … really looking fwd. to the conference !

My predictions for the PS4…

Front and back touch pad on the DS4 controller (like the Vita).

The system will be backwards compatible will all PS1, PS2, & PS3 software via Gaikai service which will be included with your PSN Plus membership.

It will utilize both BR discs (up to 100GB) and “Day 1″ digital releases.

And it will have 2 retail packages at launch, a “basic” 120GB solid state drive for $299 and a 1TB hdd ver for $349.

Demos being show:
Short clips of Gran Turismo Code Orbis (name to change), Grand Theft Auto V (PS4 edt.), Uncharted 4, inFAMOUS 3, and a teaser for a new Crash Bandicoot game made by original developers Naughty Dog.

Oh, and a new improved Sony Move which is improved through software algorithm and uses existing Move hardware, though a new HD Sony “Ocule” camera is required. The game being shown off to demo this features Parappa the rapper… You gotta believe!

That’s all I got ;)

Same, i have owned ps,ps2,ps3 at least four of each system. And I have never received a loyalty voucher.
But I’m ready to play my ps3 games on the ps4 in hope that it will lag/glitch/freeze less.
Mostly that it is not released faulty/premature.But at the same time in a reasonably timely matter since the hype has been built on SONY’s side.

Nevertheless love my PS1,2,3′s , and I’m wishful for more DURABLE controllers.

Oh great, another crappy shooter console full of crappy PAAGGs (Play As A Gun Game). Not buying another piece of crap PlayStation, if it’s going to continue to be full of mediocre games like the PS3.

I remember how fantastic both the PS and PS2 were. The PS3 is a POS though. Full of casual crappy shooters. I really miss great JRPGs and WRPGs.

I HAVE BEEN WAITING 6+ YEARS FOR NEW JRPGS WITH TURN BASED COMBAT THAT ARE LIKE FF7-FF10 AND XENOGEARS. PS3 HAS ZERO NEW PROPER TURN BASED GAMES. 6+ years and there are no PS3 games like that. I bought a PS3 for those types of games and there aren’t even any. You fooled me once Sony, you will not fool me again. I already bought a 3DS and WiiU and I’m not buying your new garbage console.

#186 – I refuse to believe that Sony didn’t have anything to do with the mediocre Resistance and Killzone series. Or Starhawk, or Twisted Metal or Little Big Planet Kart or Modnation Racers or that awful PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale. Sony should have made deals for JRPG exclusives, but Sony were so arrogant that they felt that they did not need to pay for exclusives, and look where that got them – 3rd place, the Playstation is now behind the Xbox “No Games” 360, that only has Failo and Gears of Bore. It is very pathetic. What happens when you don’t keep your system sellers is that nobody buys your system.

PS3 was a year late and let all the JRPGs like Lost Odyssey slip through their fingers, since Microsoft was paying for JRPGs, but Sony pig headedly thought they were too good to pay for business. What happened is that Xbros don’t play JRPGs, nobody bought those turn based JRPGs for the 360, so Japanese devs thought that people no longer like turn based. The thing is that Xbros only buy garbage shooters. JRPGs like Final Fantasy VII put the PlayStation brand on the map in the first place and Sony severely let me down with the PlayStation 3. Not only have Sony let me down, but they have let themselves down.

Plus why are you all so excited for a PlayStation 4? Does your memory fail you so much that you do not remember the PlayStation 3 launch?

Remember back when people called the PS3 the “DelayStation”, and for good reason? The PlayStation 3 didn’t even have any good games for about 3 years. I remember the memes with “PS3 has no games”. So remember, if you buy a PS4 at launch, odds are that it’s going to only have mediocre games for a very long time.

KidCommando, your opinion doesn’t count since you’re a biased fanboy. LMFAO, you own a PlayStation “NO GAMES” Vita! LOL! Why did you buy a sucky handheld with no games? I wouldn’t be caught dead with a Vita, plus the name is horrible.
