what about microsoft
Eh, I guess?
PSN games also won't be playable on PS4. I imagine PS 1 "classic" games might, nothing else.
I don't give a damn about Microsoft, so I don't know/care.
After Looking It Up, Microsoft is suffering the Same Way Nintendo is, by posting their first ever Financial Loss as of July 20th, 2012 (Before that, they were making a Profit). Their Online Service Department has always posted losses since 2006. Unlike Sony, however, their Credit Rating is AAA, which is a very good Credit Rating, so they are not in as much trouble as Sony is.

i wonder what the xbox next is going to be since ps4 was announced
The next Xbox console will have a used games filter, only playable through the Kinect, has a kill switch that can be activated by Microsoft, ads will tun every five minutes, and Clippy will assist you in everything.

The Xbox 720 is going to be focusing on an enhanced, built-in Kinect. Which means all three next-gen consoles are going to have annoying gimmicks that interfere with traditional play.
You know, the elephant in the living room here is going to be the price. The controller has a bunch of random crap stuck into it, it's going to have a bunch of crazy streaming capabilities and extra chips installed into it to handle it, they didn't announce the pricepoint at the conference, there's the whole graphics ceiling and Sony might not have the capability to sell at a loss as much as it once did.
Are gamers going to be willing to get a comparatively slight bump up in graphics and some extra features if they have to pay FIVE HUNDRED AND NINETY NINE US DOLLARS again?
The PS 4 is the size of a small fridge and costs 60,000 dollars
The PS 4 is the size of a large fridge and costs 59,999 US dollars.

PS 4 fridge would go well with PS3 BBQ◊
Sony's not so stupid as to put 599$ as the price tag for their new console again.

So, buy another PS 3 while they are still available and forget about the Playstation 4 because there is two ways I am paying twice for games I already own. One is "no" and the other is too rude.
But does it have a toasted-sandwich machine?
NO BUT IT HAS A WAFFLE FRIER
this means my soon 1080p ledtv wont have to be in 720p mode anymore. :V
the odd design for 360 on some website back in 2005 was a gas-cooker.

isn't looking at 1080p seriously unhealthy?
About as unhealthy as watching something at 60 frames per second.
What about 1080p at 60 frames a second?
I was kidding.
There's nothing wrong with playing something at 60FPS. Some people won't play a game unless it's 60FPS.
I haven't heard anything about 1080p being suddenly unhealthy either. Probably pointless scaremongering.

I recall reading something on this forum about it. Probably won't kill you or make you blind but honestly graphics really shouldn't be a main priority.
"On November 22nd, 2012, Sony's stock was downgraded to junk status. Given the fact that not a single company has ever recovered from it, and Sony's long line of financial troubles, it's looking unlikely that the Orbis will ever see the light of day. However, against all odds, Sony announced the Play Station 4, dropping the Orbis monicker and laughing in the face of the Four is Death trope, on 20 February 2013, with hopes that it do for them what Final Fantasy did for Square Enix."
yep, Sony is dead
there are game's that can do both.
100hz mode on tv's made my 480p/i ps2 games look very smooth.
so this is sony's final fantasy. :V

you know how the work pages love to use metaphors
I love them too actually so I'm not complaining
Sony is junk though, literally
I don't think the pricing is going to be that bad. I see it launching at around $400-$450. Sony, this time around, went the Microsoft route and designed their console to be like a PC.
And frankly, I'm on board for the social media aspect of the console. Everyone loves to do Let's Play and show their gameplay videos. I think this was a smart move on Sony's part to capitalize on it.
