Wall Street Journal: "New PlayStation arriving this year", PS4 vs. Wii U soon

#81LoregiverPosted 2/1/2013 6:22:22 AM
In an update, the Journal adds that Sony is planning to "incorporate more social gaming aspects into the new machine," and that the company is generally focused more on "changes in how users interact with the machine" rather than spec improvements. Reportedly, it will still have an optical drive, though the publication's anonymous sources say that Sony had considered removing it. As rumored in April, the Journal says that the console will likely use AMD processors for both CPU and GPU, which could make backwards compatibility with PS3 games — developed for the Cell processor architecture — difficult.

Interesting.

Stopping nintendrones from lying is not trolling. If you understood the truth you wouldn't be butthurt.

And the Wii U will lead in sales as long as the PS4 is $200+ more which it wil probably be. If Sony somehow manages to release this at $400 or lower then they will have a winner. Anyone other than the hardcore gamers are not going to shell out $400+ in addition to a $60 game + possibly a second $60+ controller. Sony's problem is their pricing strategy. Look at the Vita. Priced out the ass so no one buys it which in turn prevents developers from making games on it.

Upgrading from a HD console to another HD console is going to be a hard sell for a lot of the more casual gamers out there which is what makes up most sales after the initial couple months. I have not seen very many people at all complaining about the graphics on the Xbox 360 or PS3.

And their whole "social" expansion may kick them in the balls. Those kind of gamers are probably playing facebook games or gaming on their iPhone/iPad more than they would be on a console.

If Sony really is rushing the PS4 that could turn out very badly for them. It's not like their last two major launches (PS3 and Vita) went smoothly. The again, they (Sony) don't really seem to learn from their mistakes, and their most delusional fanboys don't even acknowledge they make any mistakes, so I'm not surprised to see the premature declarations of victory.

their launches will more then likely be like the wii u in the launch window so only the die hards will get one at launch and then on their forums it will like the wii u forums.

WiiU competition is not just PS4,some people really live in 2005.Back then you had 3 consoles,PC and nothing else.

These days you have iOS,Android,Internet,PC,tablets,smartphones and who knows what else grouped together with consoles and each of them are taking gaming money away from consoles.
