    I know theres a gaming thread but this is about a console.

    So, Sony have dished out invites to the press and people that matter to one their shows next month. When they do this its when they want to announce something so everyone in the gaming world have been finger bum wanking since with over the top speculation.

    If the spec of the supposed PS4 is to be believed then its not even future proofed and using tech that is already in circulation.

    The PS3 isnt even used to its full capabilities yet.

    I cant even think of any new tech or gizmos that would make you wanna ditch the PS3 for a PS4.

    Where did you get that from?
    It is true that you could squeeze more out of the console by optimizing rendering and 3d models but that is an endless process, its pretty much at its limit mate.
    Saying that it isn't at its full capabilities is a bold statement.

    Without a gay console war breaking out both have things the other doesn't. Ps3 has bluray. Nuff said.

    I read it somewhere not long ago ps3 is no where near pushed to its full capability so a ps4 is unlikely but an add on for the ps3 more than likely

    they have put RFID chips on all the games apparently (or at least patented the idea) so that once you play a game in a certain machine it will only be able to be played on that... no lending or reselling games. What a fucking ludicrous decision. What happens if your PS4 breaks? Have to buy all the games again hahaha

    I wouldn't buy one anyway... but if was going to and that was true that would put me straight off.

    Why do you think they keep putting back GTA 5 can anyone remember when the PS2 was released GTA3 got a release then when the PS3 was released GTA4 was relesed. When the PS4 gets released GTA5 will be released

    anyone else think, for this day and age.. the graphics on alot of the games on xbox and ps3 is wank.. just abit blocky and rigid.. i rekon there will be a massive step up.. some of my games on the 360 arent tons better than the ps2 .. im prepared to be shot down by this sweeping statement

    I think if you played xbox360 or ps3 then go play on a playstion 1 or an xbox standard you would notice a difference but its not changed loads

    yes i know, what i mean tho... in terms of technology advancing.. it seems dated... they dont seem that revolutionary for what we are producing these days..

    for example ... playstation 1 released in 1995 ... here is a mobile phone from around the same time -

    [​IMG]

    and then the ps3 launched in 2007 - and here is a mobile from the same brand from around the same time - [​IMG]

    id say there needs to be a big leap for the ps4 or xbox 720 .. if there isnt im gunna shit my pants on purpose

    The xbox in my mind will be better. I prefer the online experience anyway - The 720 is due for release at the end of the year with the ps4 set for early next year. Valve are also making something called the steam box. this is for pc players to have a console or console players to have a pc spec sitting room gaming device.

    They have talked about locking games to a console for ages as the games companies dont make any money from the trade or re-sale of games, instead the game will be full price at launch and then be made cheaper alittle later on.

    GTA5 is set for release in march/april time.

    i buy consoles based on what my mates have... they all do the same fucking thing. I dont get wrapped up in the gay arse console bashing wars.

    Yeah i heard as well games can only be played on that one machine meaning 2nd hand game and rental places will lose custom, lose money and close with the loss of jobs. Shite idea
