Darn, I just logged in to post this and as soon as the page refreshed I saw this thread :/
If it is the PS4, hopefully it doesn't have a 600$ price tag and is released next year. Just feels too early for to come out yet due to all the games this year. I would expect it to be a bit more quiet once the system comes out.
Too many rumors floating around for this not to be the big moment we've all been waiting for. Where there's smoke, there's fire, right?
It's pretty much impossible to exaggerate how excited I am for the PS4. I don't expect it be as big of a leap as PS2 ---> PS3 was, but that's not a bad thing in my eyes. I really like a lot of what the PS3 does, so I expect its successor is going to offer a similar, but refined experience. The biggest change is probably going to be in the user interface department. I imagine you'll be able to run multiple apps simultaneously so jumping between activities will be much more seamless. And hopefully they'll find a way to cut out all the software updating they've gotten so much grief for.
Makes me wonder how they're going to support the PS3 after its successor is out in the wild.
Think we'll see another tiered release though, so I predict the standard model that everyone wants will be $399.
Oh man, I hope not. Just sounds waaaay too early to me, with some of the titles coming out this year. Maybe early/mid 2014, but this year. Yeah, just feels too rush.1) The next PlayStation home console launches November 2013 at $349 USD for the most basic model.
....Too poor for Next Gen. :P I am really excited but I hope it isn't out til 2014. Would suit me a lot more. And my PS3 is still kickin' .
