Stolen from CE (__Cam__), which was stolen from somewhere else

Console:
* Uses a 4-core AMD CPU, and an AMD GPU performing similarly to the Radeon HD 7XXX series of GPU's. Is the "most open" console Sony's ever developed.
* The hardware makes sure that there will be 1080p, 60FPS, anti-alised "standard" for games. The console supports 4K displays, and future games will reflect that.
* Uses a proprietary Blu Ray laser + drive that reads/loads content up to 2.5x as fast as the PS3.
* Can interact with smartphones/tablets and vice versa. The PS4 can mirror full games directly to a tablet, while (theoretically) someone else can browse the PSN Store or watch a movie.
* Can be used as a STB/DVR for certain cable providers.
* Will launch in Q4 2013.

Controller:
* Resembles a more ergonomical DualShock 3, but with updated motifs like glassy buttons, concave thumbsticks, a larger D-Pad, and larger handles.
* Has a small, Vita-like touchpad on the front of the controller, though it isn't "in the way", so to speak. The touchpad itself also acts as a clickable (tactile) button.
* Features a gyroscope and an IR-sensitive bar to improve upon the Sixaxis' motion controls.

System Software:
* Sony's retiring the XMB in favor of a new, customizable 3D UI.
* PlayStation Cloud - Game saves, PSN info, trophy data, etc. saved to a single profile in the cloud. Certain PSN games can be streamed directly to the PS4 at a cheaper price than a full purchase.
* PS Home will be replaced with a social network-like platform where PSN users can post in discussion boards about games, talk in chat rooms, or meet new friends.
* Developers can use their own graphics and sounds for PSN notifications, trophy unlocking, and other parts of the System Software's UI such as keyboards.

PS Vita Slim:
* Slightly smaller than the existing Vita, resulting in higher pixel density.
* Improved battery life by 1-2 hours.
* Added HDMI + USB ports.
* Price dropped to $189 and $229 for the WiFi and 3G versions.
* Releasing in May.

Sounds like the PS4 dev kit controller.

"PS Home will be replaced with a social network-like platform where PSN users can post in discussion boards about games, talk in chat rooms, or meet new friends.."

That sounds a lot like certain feature on the other system. This, and that tablet connectivity...

Shame on you, Sony!

If Sony released a PSVita Slim (which I doubt they will), I would be pretty livid. How about some new games instead of throwing early adopters under the bus?

As long as they don't make the physical Vita games obsolete, I'm happy with my current purchase. That HDMI out would be nice, but I plan on finally getting a PS3 soon so it wouldn't be all that useful.
Currently Playing: League of Legends, Persona 4, King of Fighters XIII

Playstation Home being replaced makes me sad. I wish they'd make it accessible for Vita.

If those are the differences with a new Vita, there's a good chance I'll stick with my current system.
I'm clever, vaguely feminine, a vampire, and I wield Dice. PH33R.
The 3DS and PSVita are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.
