Sony will make an announcement tomorrow regarding its new console. I’ll go out on a limb and I will just call it the PS4….. since you know, the last one was called PS3.
The rumor price right now is $400. That might be too good to be true. When the PS3 first came out in 2006, it was a whopping $600 (cost Sony $300 to make at the time). That was also the start of the blu-ray so that hardware added to the hefty manufacturing cost. With the less powerful Nintendo Wii-U retailing at $350, I’ll say the next Sony game system will be $500.
The controller looks pretty cool. The leaked pics below are supposed to be the real deal. If those are real, I like it. The thumbsticks further apart means easier control. There seems to be a small screen that can be used for maps & inventory. It’s safe to say that Sony isn’t going gimmicky with this console. It’ll be traditional but with bad ass graphics.
It’s rumored that the PS4 will also output 400k resolution for the uhmmm….new 400k tvs. This is clearer than blu-ray but my question is how much better can it get? DVD to HD was a huge step for picture quality but do we need it a higher resolution?
The release date is supposedly planned for Nov 2013, just in time for the Holidays. Makes sense to me.
Now where is the xbox 720 controller at? I have to decide which one I’m getting…all based on the controller design of course!
