The Latest Playstation 4 Rumors

It’s hard to believe that we’re on the cusp of what could be another major round of console releases already. After all, it seems as if we were just introduced to the PS3 and developers are pumping out great, high-quality games for it at a record pace. Having said that, the prospect of better hardware and more advanced capabilities is extremely electrifying to say the least. Then there’s the reality that with a new plateau of possibilities comes a new series of more advanced software; certainly some of you are also dreaming of the graphical capabilities which are almost within our grasp. This is a very exciting time for gamers to say the least.

Currently, there are 3 big rumors surrounding the Playstation 4, each one of them dealing with different production aspects and capabilities. First off, there’s the rumor which has been spread by NVIDIA of all groups, which purports that this upcoming generation might actually be the last official batch of “gaming consoles” that we’ll ever see. Yes, you read that right. It seems that most companies are pushing for alternatives which make use of cloud technology, which virtually eliminates the need for individuals to purchase self-contained systems. This might very well also change the relationship which gamers have with software ownership as well.

Then there’s the rumor that the PS4 is actually going to support 4k resolution, which is a pretty amazing prospect. What does this mean for gamers, exactly? Well, imagine being able to increase your HD resolution by a factor of 4. In short, if this rumor is true, it will herald a new age of ultra-realistic graphics of the likes the world has been anticipating for quite some time. This of course sparks the long-held debate surrounding the supposed “graphical wall” in gaming, where everything becomes so realistic looking that it’s basically impossible to improve upon it from a graphical standpoint (as the onscreen action is virtually identical to real life). Once this is a reality, the need for additional consoles will no longer be required.

Finally, we have some official statements from Sony regarding the continued support for PS3, which is slated to continue on for at least 3 more years (perhaps more). Their mindset is to simply keep up with the current development pace for the PS3 until it begins to run out of steam; this is more-or-less the same exact strategy they applied with the PS2 after the PS3 was released. Why is this important, you ask? If Sony is anticipating that developers are going to continue to focus on the PS3, it is highly likely that we might not see as many truly groundbreaking titles for the PS4 emerge for quite some time.

That’s all we’ve got for you right now, people. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with any additional juicy bits of Intel we are able to recover.

  1. the people saying next gen will be the last gen of console have no clue what they are talking about. no one wants to be in the position where internet goes out, not more gaming.
    besides most internet users couldn’t stream a game smoothly

  2. Nobody cares anymore. Sony and PlayStation will be dead before they have the chance to release it. Overhype and underdeliver don’t give you a shot at the next generation. Serves Sony right with their BS lies. Credit rating down the drain even more. More losses to be expected and the Yen expected to strenghten even more. It’s byebye Sony time!

    Hmm. Maybe if we are no longer CPU bounded, ever, by that time.

  4. It’s funny to think how many haters are out there when it comes to Sony. The fact is Sony is and always will be a powerhouse electronics company. They have been innovative in so many things over the years. Its seems because they haver been so successful that many people can’t wait for them to fail. When it comes to gaming people ignore the fact that they are the lead console outside North America. I am not saying that Sony is not without failure but you may think because of down year they are down and out. Sony is poised to be around for the long haul and not in any rush to be the first to the finish line and put out a product that has 33% failure rate….Like some other gaming company!!!

  5. Seriously, fuck 4K res. What the ratio of games that actually display full 720p to full 1080p. Lets first get a standard of games running in a 60fps at a full 1080p then we can talk about greater resolutions.

  6. Once that wall is has been reached… RAM should be a focus. I would rather games be able to have deeper gameplay than graphics anyway. Current-gen graphics are just fine.

  7. I can imagine payilng a Move fighting FPS with it xD Srsly, if you guys add a back part so it STAYS on the head without the need to hold it(hell you can put more stuff in the back part as well, and improve the performance), and work a bit on some tracking software so when you play a game you can move around and the camera will follow You have yourself the most epic gaming accessory.
