PostSubject: Sony Just Had a Two Hour PS4 Event With No PS4   Thu Feb 21, 2013 8:51 pm

After showing us tons of awesome looking games, Sony straight up denied us the console. We have specs, we've seen the controller, but we haven't seen the box. Or triangle, or orb, or whatever this non-existant hardware for the PlayStation 4 might look like. Oh and no price or release date, either. We don't even know when Sony will tell us more. Sony stoked our excitement, and there's no way to be satisfied. What a bummer.

All night we heard about lofty ideas behind the development of the new console, but as the hours of demos and introductions dragged on, it became increasingly obvious that we weren't actually going to see the PlayStation 4. Not yet. All this talk about "the coming months" and "this year" is really depressing. Sony either isn't ready for primetime, or Sony thinks the best way to get us interested is to play hard to get. Oh well, more to come, means more to look forward to!

Reading some of the comments looks like maybe the PS4 isn't going to be a huge hit, here is some comments about the above story:

Quote :
Stoked our excitement? Seriously? More like ostracized a whole bunch of potential sales to people who aren't to thrilled about having to re-buy their entire game catalog to stream through the cloud. Screw your greed, Sony: the fact that you are killing the resale market will only entice more pirates to hack your system. Congrats.

Quote :
But will it run linux? The last PS-thing I bought promised to, then took away the possibility. Sony, can we believe anything you say now?

Quote :
The console does matter. yes they mentioned some of the hardware specs, but to me 2 important ones were left out. Will it have blu-ray or will all the games be downloads only? Will it have 802.11 ac wifi to help with all the cloud and streaming features, I think those bits of information are pretty critical. Also yes i want to see what the damn thing looks like.

That's just crazy having a presentation and not showing the console! And what's this about only being able to download games? That's just sucky!

Think its only download old games, so its backwards compatible but only if you re-buy the ps2/3 games.

Tell me about it, I think that is the biggest kick in the balls any console company could do to their loyal fans.

"Whats that? You've already bought these games when you owned a ps2 and 3, well we want you to buy them again because that disc you already own is now only good for a costar"

Screw you Sony!!!
