New rumors about PS4

#1jacobfilyaw22Posted 11/17/2012 10:05:03 PM
PSM3 magazine had these rumors about the PS4....

The next console will not be called PlayStation 4, the number 4 in Japan is pronounced "shi", meaning death. Many buildings in Japan have no 4th floor and room number 4 due to the same reason
The codename for the console is Orbis, which could perhaps be part of the final name
PS4 titles will look like high-end PC demos you found in Watchdogs, Star Wars 1313 or Square Enix's Luminous tech demo
PS4 demos will be shown by Sony at E3 2013
PS4 games will not run in 4K or Ultra HD resolution, it will probably be used only for videos
The default resolution will be 1080p at 60fps
PS4 will not support used games, games need to be registered to PSN account
There will be a protection scheme in the system, in the form of online pass or something similar
PS4 will have around 4GB to 8GB memory - if the next Xbox system has 8GB memory, Sony would be put under pressure to have 8GB
PS4 will have 16GB flash memory
PS4 will not be backward compatible with PS3 games
PlayStation Plus will be an important pillar of the PS4
PS4 will be shipped with PS Move controller and camera
Classic games will be available via Cloud gaming, powered by Gaikai
PS4 will run on quad-core AMD processor code name Liverpool, produced in a 28nm process
The price will be around 400 - 500

My main concerns are the ones about the used games, flash storage, and the price. 500 to 600 dollars. I thought Sony learned from what happened with the PS3! No HDD? 16 GB flash memory? My HDD stays full. That's not enough

Any thoughts?

So that's even more of a reason for them to call it Playstation 4. Vita means "Life" in Latin so I'm sure Sony will use this to make a "Life & Death" ad about hooking the Vita up to the PS4 and such.

There is no way -- In HELL -- That the ps4 will have 16gb of memory. None. Zero. Unless they're giving you cloud storage and that isn't going to happen, either... One game and its install and you're done.

I say 500gb and 1tb skus will be put out at launch... 400 and 500 bucks respectively. I hope to god Ps4 games look better than Watch Dogs, though. That's disappointing to say the least.

Sophistication is buying ALL of your games digitally, but it's more than that. It's a way of life. it's having the best games and telling the world about them

I deal in facts, not rumors. Some rumors come true. Some don't. No point in taking them for more than what they are.

There is fun to be had in speculation though.

Not around these parts. Only pessimism and hate.
