Looks like the time is nigh. Hug your PS3s and continue to neglect your Vitas.

Is the holiday 2013 release date a rumour or confirmed? And what does that mean..Thanksgiving or Xmas?
It's confirmed.

And yeah, it means either Thanksgiving or Christmas. I think technically, the window is from October to December.

Sorry I was about to respond to some quote notifications in the previous thread but I've lost them now.

Nice, will be interesting to see if they release at the same time. Hope the Euro version isn't delayed too much.

Didn't the Vita have similar issues where most people felt they were cheated out of money based on games they had for PSP that they couldn't play on the Vita?

Sorry if this is late to the party, but I just saw on Kotaku that the PS4 won't require an "always online" connection.

I would think not. Aren't console launches usually the same date worldwide? Though, I didn't pay attention to that when the Wii U launched, and it feels like a hundred years since the PS3 and 360 launched.

I could see Sony and Microsoft literally launching on the same date, since so much had been made about the leg up Microsoft had gotten this generation by being the first to strike.

Often. But PS3 was delayed in Europe. For someone who had been anticipating it every day for all those years it was horrendous news! It's that fact that led me to getting an XBox despite being 100% Sony since PS1. I still got a PS3 at launch but by that time I had made loads of XBox buddies who are still great friends today and it's my primary console for multiplats now.

That would be very interesting if it happened! First to strike (not being) was just one factor in Sony's poor start but it was definitely an important factor nonetheless.

Well I will be honest keep your PS3 if BC means so much. If you can't afford to get a PS4 with out selling your PS3 I guess that's more of your budget. I will agree it stinks. But like many others were saying, it truly is about the future games. And the PS4 will have tons of those. Especially exclusives, I don't see how it can be a deal breaker when it offers next gen games and lots of them. I buy Sony's stuff for their games, and they will have that. The PSN stuff is bull, because it's digital it has nothing to do with hardware. So hopefully that is something they will remedy. But all the big sites were pretty much right saying there is going to be no BC, and in reality it's not a big deal. Keep your PS3. And honestly I never get rid of my old consoles, I still have my NES and SNES, PSOne and PS2, and many others.

Yeah, I imagine my PS3 and PS4 will be hooked up to the same TV.

So I guess the purely digital format means no more renting games?

Also what are the prices for the PS4 models?

I'll probably buy my first PS3 to rent PS3 games and buy the PS4 much later when the price drops and they have a huge library.

What? The PS4 will have a disc drive and support both new and used games.

Really?

That would be beautiful.

Then I could buy a PS4 right away and rent plenty of PS3 games.

Nope. It will only support PS4 games and Dvd/Bluray Movies.

Also, this is exciting news to me:

The sound effects thing doesn't seem needed though.

I just read that the PS4 won't play used or second hand games, so no renting or borrowing PS4 games either.

Might as well download every PS4 game I buy. Hopefully they won't charge full price for older games.

Darn thread change I forgot to quote some peeps last night! I definitely plan on holding onto my PS3, there are plenty of titles I haven't played. No BC for PS4 is disappointing if true. I see myself getting a PS4 in 2014 or 2015 because of this, there are still plenty of games I have yet to play this generation that I'm eager to check out. E3 will probably be a major deciding factor.

I think that was confirmed yesterday by Sony that the PS4 WILL be in fact able to play used games.

Sucks now that we have to wait till E3 to finally see the PS4 I hope sony unveils it a bit earlier so by E3 they can showcase all the games that are coming out for the PS3 PS4 and Vita.

It'll probably be leaked before that just like the controller.

Everyone on the Internet What in the world was up with those four Bungie guys on Sony’s stage?

I know, right? We’ve been chasing the answer to the question from the moment we picked ourselves up off the floor and stopped laughing. Details are still murky, but from what we can gather Marty may have instructed our four friends to “keep their hands out of their pockets.” We also may or may not have a Men’s Warehouse directly below our studio.

You’re going to love the way we look into the void.

From their idle hands ushered forth an invitation to a new community of gamers. Though this foursome clearly didn’t appear enthusiastic – or capable of experiencing any human emotion – we are super stoked and incredibly fortunate to be able to welcome a whole new group of gamers into the Bungie fold.

I guess you have to upload your PS3 saves to their cloud service.
