Awesome Sony. You did without a doubt have the best and most appealing presentation on E3 this year.

My question is… is it true you have to pay for online?

yerT87 said:

June 11th, 1:25 pm


Yes and no. To use Netflix and the other apps no, to play multiplayer yes. But if you pay you will be a plus member and get all of the IGC games and it also carries over from PS3 so get it now if you can and start reaping the rewards!

LOVE the matte finish on the console & controller. It’ll look perfect next to my entertainment center. sleek sexy & powerful.

patsfan2007 said:

I already pre-ordered it.

PS_man1984 said:

June 11th, 2:42 pm

I like how slim it is compared to the Xbox One, but that angled design will make it hard to access the ports in the back.

probably this isn’t address at e3 but is playstation home going to be on the ps4?

Carlosmorataya said:

it is awsome it also looks kinda like the ps2

sounds crazy but will it have A/V jacks? im still living in a pre-hd tv world

PS4 still has time to implement retrocompatibility with PS3 games, PS2 games and PSX digital games and decline Plus being mandatory to play online maintaining online playing free for everyone. If they don’t, I will give the thumbs down to PS4, use my PS Plus account to “buy” free PS4 games and only buy it after it has dropped it’s price dramatically or they add compatibility with PS3 in any way they want to. I encourage everyone that bought over 190 digital PS3 games supporting this company to do the same. RESPECT TO MY PS3 GAMES COLLECTION!

It looks cool! I already pre-ordered mine! I’m so excited! :) The only thing that disappoints me about the PS4 is that it is not backwards compatible. It would be nice if the PS4 lets us play our PS1, PS2 and PS3 discs and digital downloads through Gaikai. I would also love to see a new Jak and Daxter game.

I look forward to Knack, inFamous: Second Son, Final Fantasy XV, Metal Gear Solid V, etc. Keep up the good work, Sony! :)

Look amazing, But WHY is it SO BIG like the damn XBOX ONE. I was hoping it would be slim and easy to carry around but am still gonna buy it.. <3 PS forever!

Amazon is sold out in Canada and the US

I didn’t see that coming at all!

NorthernLitez said:

June 11th, 5:21 pm

Finally, you guys did everything right. A couple things I’d still like know are

1) will we get to stream the games we already have on PSN to the new PS4

2) Can we still plug in an external drive to play music or movies

3) How will the new PlayStation Eye work

4) Damn, you answered so many questions I think that’s it.

BTW, I’ve already pre-ordered the PS4 and I’m assuming most people on this forum have done the same. You did an absolutely perfect job at E3.

5) Little Big Planet 3 and Uncharted 4? Ah…I guess they are for the next E3 :-(

NorthernLitez said:

June 11th, 5:23 pm

Oh…and to the people that are complaining about paying for online….get over it! The Playstation + is $50 a year and offers $100 of dollars in AAA type games. It is by far the best video game deal going and your current membership will carry over to the PS4 wooooot.

Okay I have been a play station fan since the early 90’s and yesterday you have made me an even bigger fan with the way you wiped xbox off the floor and under the carpet its amazingly beautiful its even better than i had imagined for every xbox fan im sorry but this is the end of xbox playstation will always be the better system so again GOOD JOB SONY!!

jose213jose said:

June 11th, 6:21 pm

Sony you guys did 200% grand job on designing the PS4 console way better then when the first PS3 came out, PS4 Eye is great as well, and i love controller design so much. I can’t wait to own this hardware really soon so i can stop gaming on it as quickly. I hope for early release date maybe by November 1st.

PS: What type of HDD will the PS4 support? 2.5 inch 7-9mm type laptop hard drives or 3.5 inch hard drives found in the Desktop’s?

Plus will SDD work with PS4 as well? I have 1TB SDD set on the side for PS4.

derb said:

June 11th, 6:39 pm

Found a place :)

Pre-ordered with Watch Dogs! :)

Date shows 12/31 but I know it will be out November… Even if it isn’t, it would take months to get your hands on the PS4 without a pre-order.

Have not been this excited about a gaming console since I pre-ordered PS1 back in 1995 for $550

Online play has never been free. The cost of your wear-and-tear on the network has always been included in the cost of the products you paid for. It has always been one of those “hidden fees”. You paid for it without realizing it. You honestly believed it was just… FREE?

Sony is just being more transparent about the reality of this expense this time around. Which is good, and long overdue in my opinion.

And don’t forget everything else that you’ll get for the cost of your subscription. PlayStation Plus is not simply an online play activation code… it will be so much more on the PS4.

MickeyWard09 said:

Looks okay, a little like the Xbox One and PS2 combined. Better looking than the competition anyway.

Hoy tempranito hice la precompra del PS4 y también Killzone Shadow Fall. Early in the morning I preordered the PS4 and Killzone Shadow Fall. Yesss PS4 the Future of PLAY.

BrianPace said:

The only thing that bothers me about the design is that the drive tray is too close to the USB ports. If it is in fact a tray load system it seems possible that a plugged in USB cable may interfere.

navneeet said:

June 11th, 8:50 pm

looks like a functional futuristic design, could have been more radical as it is a video game console afterall…Im still a playstation fan tho….. Cant wait for the techspecs, release date and price. also cant wait for gta4….:*

TRED- said:

June 11th, 9:06 pm

FAIL : Sony major fail on subscription and the usual alienate your European player base by pricing euro as dolar its bad enough we have only half the content of the US store and still pay the same . I preferred when PSN plus was a choice , what next plus gold ?

x_Wyntir_x said:

Could i use my ps3 account on the ps4? i ask bcuz I made this account just for the ps4. My actual ps3 account is Vontir_Vamp

Pre ordered at best buy. does it come with a headset? ready for cod ghosts!!

wolfomega said:

June 11th, 9:58 pm

i’m sorry sony, While i’ll stick with ps3 for a long time, i’ll never get the PS4 for one thing, Subscription required. PS3 actually helped me find my best friend and we play online every chance we can sense i moved away. I don’t have a stable income so i won’t be playing with him. I don’t see a reason why you HAVE to go this way. I’m sorry, but you’ll not have my money this time which is a shame because i was rooting for you.

The smooth upper right side contrasts well with the grainy 3/4’s of the machine. . .but good lord the back looks like a mess. I suppose that’s where the venting is taking place but sheesh. It definitely looks more inspired than the XB1 (which seems to be aping the black instead of sticking within it’s own color schema), but man.

lyfestory said:

June 11th, 11:14 pm

Job well done, Sony… thanks for answering the fans and bringing us the details.. I don’t normally pre-order anything, but i did so for the PS4…
I do hope there will be some form of extended warranty for the system though, whether offered by Sony or stock vendors… I do want assurances the system will be stable considering the money im spending on it, as we all know, the early PS3 had issues, including my own 60gb, which is still sitting unusable in its original box…

derb said:

June 12th, 12:23 am

I still got my 60 as well. Bought it for BD & it has seen over 1,000 Blu-ray Discs since 2006. Not a single one glitched. I’ve kept it mainly because of the backward compatibility & it’s ever growing value on EBay lol


Well I guess stand by your statement than & don’t get a PS4. I was on the fence for other reasons like all my digital downloads not being compatible. To think $50/Year is stopping you and others from spending $400 to get the system seems like a weak excuse. How many games do you and your friends $buy$ a year? Is it less than $50? If so, I apologize.

Q8yty said:

June 12th, 12:36 am

So Mind blowing
i already pre- order it

TRED- said:

June 12th, 12:52 am

I dont think its a weak argument , the fact that in Europe if you live outside a major town city you rely on wireless isps or slower connections , ie copper or 3g which comes with data charges and data limits. And the fact that in Europe we will pay 399 euro for the ps4 and the US will pay 399 usd , the exchange rate means we should only pay 300 euro. but it seems sony could not give a rats ass about Europe. PSN+GOLD comming soon !

Cant wait to see it in my living room this holiday season. This looks revolutionary. The design that represents next generation and the power it holds inside. Nicely Done. I’m in love @ first sight. Thank you Sony Computer Entertainment.

derb said:

June 12th, 2:08 am


I see your argument clearer now.

You make good points. I didn’t know Euroland charged Wireless for home use. How do people play their 360’s with friends without being a gold member? I guess they just don’t. Never mind that..

How do people pay their wireless ISP for PSN? Just because the PSN is free wouldn’t neglect the service charge of the source, IE a wireless provider.

300 euro seems fair & 250 pounds. With that exchange rate I’d be paying,

$407.31 CDN
$398.61 CDN

Have to ask yourself if $50 is worth having a next gen console for a whole year with 4 PS4 games free?

looking great


June 12th, 6:34 am

Dude soo many X-box players r piss off and finally see the light an coming over to the Playstation side. Can’t believe that they did that to the players. Take, take, take and don’t give back. and a all n 1 system that was sony idea at first with the original playstation release in Japan. I just can see it now cooling problems, wear n tear, life of the product reduce. Now we gave the blue-ray so they can experience excellent resolution. having a system that u can not use Netflix,game it online or search the net. when ur system yearly or monthly fee is not paid that worthless. not to mention gaming it online. that we I cant see my self coming over to that side.

TRED- said:

June 12th, 7:48 am


“in Europe we will pay 399 euro for the ps4 and the US will pay 399 usd” i dont think you understand me. in Europe we pay €399 for the ps4 which is equal to $530usd ……….WhyTF id love to know.

Outside town and cities in Europe there are very little fiber optic lines so no really high speed internet ,what we have is like satellite connections for high speed access which has data limits and is quite expensive , a data limit restricts your usage ie download limit. so if you download 2 or 3 games in a month you hit your limit and get cut off , slowed down or pay a much higher rate on the extra data you use . This was my main reason for choosing sony it was simply due to the choice pay or dont pay for plus . I fear like many Europeans i may move to pc next gen since sony dont seem to care about us.

I got a question about PS Plus and online multiplayer:

If I have multiple account on my PS4, I have to pay more than one PS Plus for my family and friends to play online?

derb said:

June 12th, 11:12 am


Actually I was agreeing with you on what the price of the console should be in Euro.

Still have not answered me on how much you already pay for PSN? Don’t tell me it’s free. PSN eats up enough data alone to give you a bill regardless of downloads if your data restricted.


If you have multiple accounts, that’s good for you and anyone you share your accounts with at home. Outside of your accounts, yes they will have to buy their own PS+ accounts.
