Well we all know the PS4 and new XBox are coming sometime. The only question is the date.

They're gonna introduce the controller-less Move 2.

Or the return of the six-axis.

I have little doubt that Sony will show off the PS4 and this means Microsoft will be playing catch up but then again with how Sony advertised PSVita and priced it they could well screw up the launch of the PS4.

Yup, it seems about that time. Let's hope Sony learned their painful, multi-billion dollar lesson from the PS3 and refrains from releasing yet another overpriced supercomputer. Of course, given the Vita, that seems unlikely.

I've come to appreciate the PS3 with time. Blu-Ray, laptop HD upgrades, bluetooth, free internet services, etc. I bet over time people paid as much for that 360 as the PS3 though I understand the initial sticker shock. Mind you I bought a slim so my perspective probably isn't the same as those first buyers.

Timing is everything so it will be interesting to see. Sega made a big mistake dropping the Saturn early and then the really nice Dreamcast came out before the PS2 and X-Box. They need to be careful not to have a 360 successor release later with more horsepower and bury their lead.

The PS3's steep price was driven largely by two things: its exotic, proprietary architecture, and Sony's insistence on using it as a Trojan Horse for the Blu-ray standard. If they learned anything at all, the next system should use either a more standard architecture, or a minor iteration of the Cell architecture, and keep the BR drive (maybe go to a higher-capacity BR, if such is available.) That should help keep costs down and make the system easier to develop for--two problems that hobbled the PS3's launch.

Given that neither has been announced (as far as I know), any specification would be pure speculation.

If either the new Xbox or PS4 require online connections there isn't a snowball's chance in hell that I will ever buy them, I don't care how incredible the software is, nothing doin' PERIOD.

The consoles may not "require" it, but they may be practically useless without it. Sony and Microsoft do not care even a little that some people will forego the console on that basis. It's not enough people to matter.

Re: Is the Playstation 4 About to be announced??

It will be interesting to see what they pull out because I think it will be a nice evolution but maybe not the revolution seen from going to early 3D with PSX, mature 3D with the PS2/XBox, HD visuals/strong online with the 360/PS3. I'm not sure these new systems will be game changers so much as a necessary upgrade.

Re: Is the Playstation 4 About to be announced??

I think it's a virtual guarantee that this generation won't be a huge leap in terms of console specs. What you may see is more innovation with peripherals, much like Nintendo did with the Wii U (e.g. the touchscreen controller), and more in the way of online/social media integration.
