The one big downside has been announced, The console will NOT be backwards compatible meaning all that dlc etc people have purchased is money lost. However GAIKAI are looking into offering PS3 games as a streaming service

Never really been fussed with backwards compatibility. Got old games to play then keep the old console,simples.

With M$ still banking on Kinect and Sony including Move/eye thingy i think whoever has the cheapest online service will swing it for me.

I have noticed you can preorder the PS4 already on a few websites.

I must admit the other thing I took away from this is that the Vita will really come into its own as an indespensible accesory with the PS4 as long as Gaikai get the streaming right I mean who wouldn't like to have a quick pop at their current game during the lunch hour at work?

On the whole I thought the info from the stream was good, and although socially focused it still seems like Sony are still concentrating on games.

I was a little disappointed that we didn't see the console or get any idea on price point and release date (other than holiday season)

We shall wait and see but I'm not sure I will adopt early yet. Some of the games looked decent but none of them are system sellers yet.

I agree on not seeing the console mate, Would certainly have got me more excited. I quite liked the social focus mostly due to the fact that its all centered around socially sharing your games rather than trying to mimic Facebook etc.

Games wise your right very little in the way of flagship titles although Watch Dogs and Destiny are ridiculously ambitious and could well become poster titles for the console....

So will this mean GTA5 gets put back for next gen? Whose gonna buy it then get a PS4 and find they cant play it? Seems odd to release a major game so close to next gen releases.

Some interesting stuff going on here and it definitely looks like Sony have paid attention to what was good/bad about the PS3 and PSN and have improved in every single way. At least it looks like Sony have taken opinion on board and used it - I have reservations MS will do the same as American business practice is completely different to Japanese....

The ball is definitely in Microsoft's court though as all the leaked spec of Durango and Orbis suggested the Sony machine would have more graphical power but less RAM and that deficit has been properly smashed! I have a sinking feeling that MS are going to come up short this time around.

This was a clever piece of PR by Sony - get the console announced and tease footage to quash rumours and speculation and then they can use E3 to show off a lot more of what the games will really look like - all while some suit from MS is jibbering on about Kinect to an emptying conference hall lol

So glad Watch Dogs is next gen though as early footage of that looked so ambitious that it was highly unlikely the current gen could do it justice.
