  • New PS4

    An image published by Destructoid on Thursday supposedly revealed a prototype of the controller for Sony’s (SNE) upcoming PlayStation 4 gaming console. The device pictured looks like a traditional PlayStation controller with a directional pad, two analog sticks and four buttons, but it also includes a small touchpad and a blue light that resembles Sony’s PlayStation Move motion device. The controller was said to be one of the prototypes that Sony tested for its next-generation console. The story was later confirmed by sources speaking to Kotaku who said “the photo is the real deal,” but it “may not represent the final form of the controller.”

    Sony unveils latest PlayStation
    Updated: 17:05, Thursday February 21, 2013

    Sony unveiled a new-generation PlayStation 4 system on Wednesday and laid out its vision for the 'future of gaming' in a world rich with mobile gadgets and play streamed from the internet cloud.

    PS4 was designed to get to know players, ideally to the point of being able to predict which games people will buy and have them pre-loaded and ready to go.
    It also allows live streaming of gameplay in real-time, letting friends virtually peer over one another's shoulders and even letting game makers to act as 'directors' guiding players along.

    Sony has also given a 'green light' to building 'the most powerful network for gaming in the world,' according to David Perry, chief of Gaikai cloud gaming company purchased last year by Sony.

    Gaikai specialises in letting people play videogames streamed from the internet 'cloud' instead of buying titles on disks popped into consoles or computers.
    'By combining PlayStation 4, PlayStation Network, and social platforms our vision is to create the first social network with meaning dedicated to games,' Perry said during the event.
    A button on the PS4 controller will let players instantly stream in-game action to friends in real time, and even allow someone to transfer control to more capable allies when stuck, according to Perry.
    He expressed a vision of letting people access and play videogames old or new on the internet using PS4, smartphones, tablets or PS Vita handheld devices.

      If this is truly the controller, i like it, it seems like a lot of people didn't like the Dualshock 3 only because of the fact that it was not thick enough, it looks like they went for a little bit of a stockier look like an XBOX. I just hope that PS4 in general can match the price point of the supposedly much cheaper Xbox.

        The controller has a share button, which seems pretty silly to me. I won't be getting a PS4, unless they drop in price at some point in the dim and distant. I brought my PS3 just after launch and it lasted until last week, (Just shy of six years) when the PS4 comes out, PS3 prices should drop, allowing me to replace Barbara Ann more cheaply, so roll on PS4!

          I currently have an Xbox 360 and am definitely going to switch to the PS4 when it comes out.

            If what is being said about the XBoxOne (have to have internet connection to play, no sharing of games, no using used games, etc. ) is true. I will be buying a PS4 instead of upgrading from my 360 to the new XBoxOne. I almost exclusively buy used games to play (except for games like COD and Left4Dead series). I don't mind waiting a few months to save 30.00 bucks per game.

            I have talked with many of my friends and family and they say the same thing. I think Microsoft has really screwed the pooch on this new console.

                You're absolutely right, they did. As a matter of fact, today they've announced that they're dumping the once-a-24 hour connection ping, the used game restrictions, the used game resale restrictions, regional stuff restrictions, downloaded games will run even if the box is disconnected. You'll only need the web connection during the initial setup.

                So they finally heard everyone screaming; I swear they are so deaf and dumb over there. Their marketing and planning guys must be noodleheads locked in an office 24/7 with no real world knowledge or experience. And must have been rolling over taking in the rear with the publishers and liking it. At least, for now, they've rolled everything back to almost 360 operability. But, it may have really effed up their plans since everyone is in a snit. For a while, they were claiming the Amazon and other pre-sellers were logging XB1 pre-orders just as good as PS4 but I'm thinking pre-orders aren't the same as real orders, especially since people can cancel and redirect their pre-order dollars somewhere else.

                I have a relative over there at MS and I was getting the 'you have to buy it' routine but I'm not that easily swayed. The box is actually ok without all the bs as it's finally gotten the BluRay which will be very nice. The opinion he got from me was that MS didn't go far enough in providing something that people just have to have. The BluRay is important but with the restrictions, there was no way everyone had to have it. Plus, they really should've designed it to replace cableboxes (standard and satellite) entirely which would've been a totally easy sale for the general public (would've killed the 3rd party cablebox manufacturers but IMHO, they have it coming). And really it doesn't go far enough as a media center; it should have a standard internal SATAIII port for the user to plug in his own junk LAN streaming stuff.

                We'll see how things go now they've backtracked but since everyone sees them as being weasily greedy idiots, MS has some serious public asskissing to do.
