Thanks, put the link in op.

It has to be PS4, there really isn't anything else they can announce (unless it has to do with PSN). They know that they have to let the cat out of the bag soon, they can't delay the announcement anymore. Everyone expects new consoles to be announced this E3 so MS and Sony have to deliver.

Speaking of E3, they seriously need to show at least some The Last Guardian footage on there. I mean come on, at least show us what you're doing. They act like it doesn't even exist anymore.

"Regarding consoles, people say that Sony will make announcements this year and that would be working on the new PlayStation. Are we going to see a new model in some months?


It's still a big secret, but our Sony PlayStation friends are getting ready. I only can say that we're focused on the games related E3 event, booked for June.The announcement can take place there or even before, in May."

How is the PS4bis a secret when he all but confirms it 2 sentences later? lolzers.

Infamous 3

Cheleman

I wish man, I wish. There's so much more they can do with Infamous, it better make a next gen comeback. There are no superhero games out right now that actually make you feel powerful. Even Prototype. There's a lot they can do with the genre if they just put more effort into it!

Hmm, probably should sneak in the announcment before Microsoft. Dont let Xbox get a huge boost of momentum like they did last time.

Prototype 2 makes you feel super powerful. It's just poor other than that. A sense of power is about the only thing it does right

That's what I'm thinking, they won't risk coming second for so long again. They have to get out and running quickly, at least with an announcement

Hmmm...it's difficult to explain. I mean sure you can run fast and have some interesting powers, but they never really pull it off well. I see what I can do in the game, but I never actuallyfeel like I'm really powerful. Like, you should be able to string moves together seamlessly, but you can't really do that in Prototype. In Infamous I actually feel powerful, but in Prototype it feels like I'm playing a generic open world game with the speed value set really high.

Sony already said it getting a price cut in 2013 so it won't be that.

I'm hoping the new console will be something innovative rather than being the traditional console upgrade.

PS2/PS3 weren't just traditional console upgrades.

They follow the same general improvement over the years, increasing hardware power. That's fine and dandy but the significance of consoles has diminished over the years. First party titles can only do so much, there has to be some competitive differentiator. If Microsoft and Sony have that and it looks impressive, I'll be on board. If not, I'm going to build my own PC since in the long run it pays off as a better investment, with Steam sales being as great as they are.

Media Molecule released LittleBigPlanet 2 in January 2011. They are known to be working on Tearaway right now Guerilla Games released Killzone 3 in February 2011. They expanded and have a new team based somewhere else working on the new Killzone Vita game, but it should have little, if any, impact on their next console release. Evolution Studios released Motorstorm: Apocalypse in May 2011. Motorostorm RC came out in January 2012, but that was a small PSN title. Insomniac released Infamous 2 in June 2011. They also had Infamous: Festival of Blood in October 2011, but that was a small PSN title. Naughty Dog's B Team released Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception in November 2011. The Last of Us is supposed to release in May 2013, but what's the rest of Naughty Dog doing? Usually waiting two years will at least yield an announcement. With not much to hear from these developers other than smaller projects, I think they may be gearing up for the next generation. If not, well, at least we'll get some cool new games from them soon, anyway.

PS3 and 360 are all purpose media devices. They have downloadable titles, Netflix, Hulu Plus, apps and other services from their store, an intuitive network system, online browsers, first party wireless controllers, increased number of players in the case of the PS3, can play Blu Rays in the case of the PS3, etc.

Oh, and PS3 can register seven different blu tooth devices. You needed a multitap to play just the few four player games on the PS1 and PS2. Most PS3 games don't go over four players, but there are some with six, namely sports titles.

They will be more or less just upgrades I think, geared more towards home entertainment and motion controls than they are now.

It has to be PS4. Sony wouldn't cram 3 huge games into the first half of 2013 for no reason. I wonder if MGS GZ will come out before November.

I'm hoping/expecting PS4 annoucment. That way the E3 show can focus on showing off the new games, and just what the new system can do.

That stuff is neat but not really important for video games in general. It's great if you want an all-in-one multimedia device, but I'm more concerned about how they'll bring about innovative changes to the gaming space.

We're looking at two options here: either Sony will announce the PS4 on May 8, 2013 or the startup screen for TLoU will announce the PS4. :cool:
