PS4: 7 Things We Hope To See In Sony's Next-Gen Console

GR: As we near the inevitable announcement of the next PlayStation gaming machine, excitement for new hardware is at an all-time high. While the Wii U helped to scratch that itch ever so slightly, nothing will truly satiate the tech-hungry nerd within like a shiny new console from Sony or Microsoft. Since a couple of us here at GR are of the opinion that Sony will be first to pull back the curtain, we're going to kick things off with a wishlist for the PlayStation 4. (Next-Gen, Sony)

More USB ports!

16-player splitscreen, right?
alexcosborn  +   545d ago
16-player simul-view is more like it!
kma2k  +   545d ago
just as importantly REAR USB ports!
Foolsjoker  +   545d ago
Really, some people are either happy with 2 USB ports, or they want less...
BitbyDeath  +   545d ago
Or no USB ports and everything wireless.
Wireless charging would be pretty cool ^_^

"Backwards Compatibility... Via Cloud Streaming........

And why stop with just PlayStation 4 support? Who says this service can't carry over to the PlayStation Vita as well?"

I can see it happening. It would make sense to have that replace remote play. The only thing this may do is make Vita software harder to sell but on the flip side how many people will buys Vita if they can play their PS4 games away from home. I say the positive outways the negative so lets hope Sony sees it that way

Gaikai job listings show that they want it to come to everything - console, tv, handheld, mobile, tablet. PS Everywhere.
TrendyGamers  +   545d ago
They'll stop at nothing.
dbjj12088  +   545d ago
It would be an amazing feature.
T3mpr1x  +   545d ago
Yeah, I hope Sony's purchase of Gaikai pays off in the form of cloud gaming...

More hard drive slots

A good, level-headed wishlist. It's not some absurd over the top WE WANT A COFFEE MAKER AND PORN wishlist, but rather states the very basics that are actually worth talking and speculating about.
doctorstrange  +   545d ago
Coffee and porn maker? Can someone put this on KickStarter already?!
Foolsjoker  +   545d ago
Can we mix the two?
kma2k  +   545d ago
8. The ability to play second hand games! This should actually be #1 or #2
Gamer39  +   545d ago
One things very important.
Many AAA exklusive games.
alexcosborn  +   545d ago
Well that's a given, no? :P

Hardware Backwards Compatibility. Gaikai is the future, but we're not all there yet. With Comcast's 250Gb/mo limit, it's hard enough to be a household of 2-3 and use Netflix.

Also, if there's a feature you wanna remove, DON'T INCLUDE IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. *looking at you, Sony*
PS3 got downgraded a little each year, but it's still Ok.
XIIIWARRIOR41  +   545d ago
Backwards compatibility & 500 GB & I'm one happy camper.

POWAHH!!!

1) Redesigned Controller
2) Vastly improved OS (including but not limited to changing system setting from within game)
3) Better online functionality (one-two button presses to accept game invites, reply to messages, check newly unlocked trophies, etc.)
4) Bluetooth or headset included in every box
5) Standard HD
6) Spend all the money they would spend on BC on more RAM (keep your PS3 people for the odd time you feel like playing last-gen games)
7) Ability to instal games onto the HD
alexcosborn  +   545d ago
Great list. I can get behind all of these.

Online at all times. I want a console with built in 5G.
