PS4: Playstation 4 launch

Adam Jacques reports live on Sony's new console

  • what no specs and price?
    2/21/2013 1:03:07 AM
  • Come on SONY!
    2/21/2013 1:03:14 AM
  • "thanks for your time and goodnight"
    2/21/2013 1:03:42 AM
  • Okay we feel a bit short changed
    2/21/2013 1:04:01 AM
  • but we have some photos to upload
    2/21/2013 1:04:07 AM
  • WHat you guys think of the promise of this platform?
    2/21/2013 1:04:42 AM
  • 2/21/2013 1:05:10 AM
  • "Coming holiday 2013"
    2/21/2013 1:05:21 AM
  • Sounds good but no pics and no pricing
    2/21/2013 1:05:51 AM
  • Apologies folks we were also hoping for some glossy console shots
    2/21/2013 1:06:27 AM
  • instead we have a few game shots here to upload coming up
    2/21/2013 1:06:46 AM
  • So, immediate reaction:
    2/21/2013 1:07:39 AM
  • Social element of this platform really opens it up
    2/21/2013 1:08:05 AM
  • Game video sharing and controlling one another's games will be huge amoungst the hardcore gamers. But will it attract the casual gamers too?

  • With speculation on how little the PS4 console will cost and how the games are being approached I wouldn't be surprised if PS4 games could start to exceed the £40-50 mark. The exclusion of the used gaming market in this instance could be its downfall. However the next gen technology, interconnectivity and revitalisation of the console format is most certainly exiting.

  • Impressive vehicle modelling here

    2/21/2013 1:12:34 AM
  • 2/21/2013 1:13:52 AM
  • Vita remote play is amazing
    2/21/2013 1:14:33 AM
  • take your Vitas out the bin folks
    2/21/2013 1:14:57 AM
  • if theres no used market, and stupidly high game prices, then games will go back to pc. i think sony and microsoft are making a huge mistake if rumors are true and theres no 2nd hand market, the pc market could be in for a huge revival.
    2/21/2013 1:15:12 AM
  • will it block used games?
    2/21/2013 1:15:19 AM
  • So you guys were most impressed with the graphics - I have to say i was too
    2/21/2013 1:16:08 AM
  • As for Second hand games: well we wouldn't expect Sony to trumpet that little gem!
    2/21/2013 1:16:38 AM
  • but likely that this mark will be killed
    2/21/2013 1:16:49 AM
  • PRICE: we estimate it to be about £300 for the base version
    2/21/2013 1:17:03 AM
  • Excited about the prospect, disappointed where they have left it!
    2/21/2013 1:17:36 AM
  • Was the console ready? We think final device body was possibly not finished
    2/21/2013 1:18:15 AM
  • So here's what we know:
    - always-on system allows for constant downloading updates and games in background: play games while updates download. 
    - Gamer video sharing using one button on new joypad. Sweet. You can even let a friend take control to get past a difficult part


    2/21/2013 1:21:29 AM
  •  - PS cloud technology to play PS3 titles on any gaming/mobile  device. We're talking iphone/Android devices.. this streaming portable gaming solution will kill off any other competitors surely?

    2/21/2013 1:23:54 AM
  • - Instant bootup is handy too

    2/21/2013 1:25:02 AM
  • And of course a living-room media hub to trump anything that's come before it

    2/21/2013 1:25:44 AM
  • Vita as a controller - we love that but if you don't own one maybe now is the right time to consider: well thats what Sony want you to do.
    2/21/2013 1:28:02 AM
  • Rumours of 3D GRAPHICS. Any sign?
    2/21/2013 1:28:36 AM
  • bye bye xbox
    2/21/2013 1:28:38 AM
  • They will show ps4 at e3
    2/21/2013 1:28:41 AM
  • Probably best news was Diablo 3 on ps3
    2/21/2013 1:28:53 AM
  • 2/21/2013 1:29:41 AM
  • 2/21/2013 1:32:00 AM
  • Also no console unveiling has ever revealed price at first press conference
    2/21/2013 1:32:19 AM
  • Sounds amazing!!!! :)
    2/21/2013 1:33:14 AM
  • How much would it be, what does it look like, when is it out
    2/21/2013 1:33:19 AM
  • Hope the new cloud is better than the server they are using for the live stream!!!!!
