The Vita is The Playstation 4

As we approach the end of the Playstation 3’s life cycle and with the launch of the Vita, it looks like the Vita is a little preview of what we can expect from the Playstation 4. Here is a list of Vita features that I believe will be on the next console.

Fascinating theory- I suspect you're right, on several counts, except perhaps for passes. You'll probably have to buy a pass to play offline, too.

Afirmitive1740d ago

STFU, both of you have no idea what you're saying.

ddurand11740d ago (Edited 1740d ago )

if you read the article and knew how the real world and business worked youd know that this article is probably balls on.

nothing he said seems outlandish at all. its a natural progression.

Jourdy2881740d ago

...Can nobody here take a joke? I was kidding about buying a pass to play offline... Mostly.
I wouldn't put it past a company that knowing planted computer viruses on music CDs to do something like that.

Sony doesnt want to take anymore losses, so yes it is possible that the Vita is the PS4. Investing in a home game console is very risky these days and Sony already has had themselves burnt very badly this gen, i doubt they want to take that risk anymore.

TBH i think it is ok because the PS3 was marketed to last 10 years. Sure the hardware is old but its not like console gamers care about graphics or performance.

darthv721739d ago

the vita were representative of the direction sony is considering taking then their next variant would more than likely offer dual roles.

Portability for obvious reasons but also the ability to dock with a tv and use a traditional controller to play games on the big screen.

Many made fun of the GO for its downloadable only model but it had many great qualities too. such as the ability to dock with a tv and use a bluetooth controller.

The vita lacks those features but that isnt to say their next version would as well. A system that can do both offers choice to the consumer. People can choose to only play on the move or they can choose to only play when docked or they can choose to use it for both.

Big question would be price but then again if it is marketed right then it could practically sell itself. Technology is getting better and smaller/cheaper too so the idea isnt really that far off from reality.

I think that the Vita is part of the PS4, it's pretty obvious that the Vita was designed to go along with the Ps3 but what it will/can do with the Ps4 will probably be one of the biggest selling points for both.

It seems that the rumour doing the rounds right now is that the PS4 is real and this is the specsheet:

Just to let you know that whole sheet is a load of BS.

DOMination-1739d ago

I posted that 9 hours ago when it was fresh. I also said it was a rumour!

Downloading PlayStation 4 games? Oh god I can only imagine how much space they'll take up.

Also time it would take. I just tried to download a full game trial of Battlefield 3 the other day (13GB). I swear it took a few hours. Now imagine day one downloading.

MySwordIsHeavenly1740d ago

They could preload it and unlock it at midnight. That's what Steam does. :)

SAE1739d ago

It takes me a day or even more to download 1 gb > .<

IRetrouk1739d ago

Damn, where you live?, feel sad for you

ieatbabies1740d ago

This is a joke right? A PS4? In my opinion the Vita is crap. An expensive miss managed handheld device with hardly any advertisement.

If this was the so called PS4 it would have already lost the race, due to the fact it would be underpowered compared too the competitors and the PS4 is a console not a handheld device, so I don't know what the author is going on about with these wild theories.

mushroomwig1740d ago

Clearly you didn't even read the article. It's basically saying how the features of the Vita will be taken and implemented into the next console (cross-game chat for example).

It's not meant to be taken literally.

ddurand11740d ago

the title is misleading.

but reading the article is always more helpful than reading headlines.

GuruStarr781740d ago

I hate people who comment without even reading the story....

I think they're called 'trolls'/

M83_1740d ago

@ddurand1
Read an article!?!

Haha
Who the fuck 'reads' nowadays anyway? ;)

GraveLord1740d ago

You're taking it too literally.
Basically he means that Vita is "the next Playstation".

The headline is basically an attention-grabber for people like you who fail to read any more.

bobshi1739d ago

Hardly any advertisement? I dunno where you live but its been advertised to death in this country.

izumo_lee1740d ago

do not think that is the case. however the blueprint that sony is taking with the vita may very well be ideas for the ps4.

the option of disc base media or digital downloads. easier to program but still maintaining high level graphics & functionality. the ps suite program may get expanded to include the ps4. free online with subscriptions for expanding more content. there are more idas that sony has yet to reveal with the vita so who knows what else is in future plans.

sony has learned the hard way that success is earned every gen & they can not rest on their laurels. the ps4 is probably the most important piece of hardware they will release cause it will determine their role in the game industry. i think they want to be leading rather than playing catch up.

ieatbabies1740d ago

Let's hope the revert back too their PS2 strategies, otherwise they're going to lose much more than just money.

Regent_of_the_Mask1740d ago

Vita is not the PS4 at all. It will obviously connect to the PS4 and even have witty advertising behind it.

Playstation "4"

The number four is considered inauspicious because it is pronounced the same as the word for death (shi). Therefore, one should not make presents that consist of four pieces, etc. In some hotels and hospitals the room number four is skipped.

Playstation "Vita"

Vita is Latin for "Life". Expect the marketing to be about Life (Vita) & Death (PS4).

dark-hollow1740d ago

"Expect the marketing to be about Life (Vita) & Death (PS4)."

No.

Hicken1740d ago

And you show your ignorance yet again.

The numbers at the end of Playstation consoles has always been pronounced in English. Well, since they've had numbers, anyway. The PS3 is NOT the PSSan. It's the PSThree. The same with the PS2. It's the PSTwo, not the PSNi. The PS4 will not be the PSYon or PSShi/Shin, but the PSFour. In English. There is no dread with the number FOUR in Japanese.
