I was impressed by this event. I don't know if I'll be able to Watch Dogs out of my head for a day. It just looks so awesome. Better start putting some pennies away for the Holidays.

No matter what price they put, Sony is gonna take it in the shorts... so they might as well be agressive about it and go for market saturation. Get in, get entrenched, and let MS and Nintendo fight it out for 2nd place...

 

BUUUUUUUUUUUUUT.... knowing Sony, they will over-value it by $100 or $200 and languish on shelves for a year, before FINALLY cutting prices after already losing billions, that's if they follow the Vita and PS3 launch models...

 

$450 is the absolute highest they can push...  Bluray isn't gonna bail them out this time... When Bluray won the HD war, that was when PS3 started moving, since it was (at the time) the most affordable bluray player... now bluray players are given away at 7-11 with the purchase of a Big Gulp, so PS4 REALLY has to convince the masses it's a value... So far, they've only proven that they are a much more expensive version of the WiiU ($450+ for PS4 plus $200+ for the Vita vs $349 for the WiiU)

None right away but they were talking about it being possible with the cloud. I'm not clear how that would work but they said all media. Not sure if you'd have to pay again for games you already own. they weren't very specific.

No actual date. "Holiday 2013" is what it said. That should be in time for Black Friday.


Pretty early, better start saving money then. Did they say if Ps4 will still use our PSN accounts that we made already?


They didn't say. Didn't mention Home either. I suspect your PSN account will be fine. Home.......?

theres Gaikai. cloud gaming, it will have pretty much every PS3 game.

question is just as you said, if we will have to buy the game again or if there will be some feature that we can play the game if we already own it.


Would be nice if you could just put the game in your PS3, have it verify it for your PSN account and just from there, stream it on the PS4 but there would have to be a way to differentiate between owned and rentals/borrowed =\

Backward compatible PS1, PS2, PS3 via cloud gaming (remember Gaikai?).  No idea if you'll have to re-buy your already owned games, but it doesn't sound like you will.  

Gaikai also hinted that PSP and PSVita games will be playable on the PS4.

Sad that HOme isnt mentioned, Im an avid user for it. But if my PSN account will be used on the PS4, then Im ok with it. I would hate to create a new account again DX

Nothing unexpected and we didn't even get to see the console hmh. ( New InFamous of course, but I'm no really stoked about that EDIT: Based on the 2 earlier infamous games. This one could be something else. )

E3 can't come soon enough.

That's what I'm hoping for. Like you said though how would it know you didn't borrow it or get it from Redbox? They'll think of something.
