We dont need the Ps4 just yet. IMO the Ps3 is still running strong. So why release another console and possibly being in the same situation as with the Ps3, taking years to even start making a profit.

I don't understand this flawed logic, and people keep saying this. Why would you wait until the PS3 is completely obsolete to release the PS4? It usually takes around two years for a console to get to a reasonable price, to have a decent selection of games, and for all the hardware and/or software bugs to get worked out. You need a transition time. The Playstation 2 was released six years after the PS One. The PS3 was released six years after the PS2. It's now been seven years since the PS3 was released and we haven't even heard an official announcement of the PS4 yet. History would suggest that we are overdue for the release of Sony's next console, the PS4.

the devs are just now getting their hands on developer units and you think a game collection is going to happen that quick so if it was to come out this year you will have a console with 2 or 3 games that suck in every aspect wondering why you wasted your money so early when you could have waited for some real games and the price to drop a little on the console...

 

i still think there will be no PS4 this year as it just wouldn't make any sense since the developer units are just now going out and that reason alone is enough to justify the reason so surely Sony knows this..LMAO


um if i remember reading articles correctly, the devs have had the kits since sometime last year


There you go with those pesky facts again.

Come on dude. I found an article from early 2012 talking about PS4 developer kits that were sent out earlier that year by doing a five second Google search. Just because you live under a rock doesn't mean stuff doesn't happen.

from your article you posted..

PS4 development kits "were said" to have been sent out to select studios earlier this year, with a wider developer rollout expected towards the end of 2012. A full release in time for Christmas 2013 is apparently on the cards.

 

COMPREHENSION SKILLS ARE YOUR FRIEND...a full release has been out for maybe what? 2 months tops..

also make sure you understand it says not a full release of the dev kits until the end of this year...it don't mention we will have the release of public units...but most of those articles are just speculation anyway..

Excellent find! I don't think anyone can refute the WSJ as a reputable source.

 

Seeing that this "announcement" is plastered on the PlayStation.com homepage, this has to be a huge annoucement, not just a software annoucement...

I think this is what happened.

 

1. Sony told its developers last year what the target specs were for the PS4, and developers could start making games based on those specs. Since the PS4 is basically using modified off-the-shelf AMD CPU & GPU, developers could just use those.

 

2. Sony later send out video cards based on the target specs for the PS4, for developers to fine tune their games.

 

3. Sony is sending out development PC which is even more complete it terms of its target specs for developers to further fine tune the games.

It is time for the next gen to come out. If the PS4 comes out late this year, it would have been 7 years, much longer than it has in the past, where the average was 5 years.

 

Just because the PS4 comes out doesn't mean that the PS3 is going to come to an end, it is going strong and will remain supported pretty strongly for at least the next 3 years.

 

The PS4 is likely to be much less costly for Sony to make than the PS3 was first starting out. The main components have already been developed by AMD, and didn't have to be developed from the ground-up like the CELL. I would be surprised if the PS4 sold for more than $400...
