What the PS4 Needs to Do


In a little over a week, Sony is expected to announce their own entry into the Eighth Generation. Regardless to whether or not we actually need a new Playstation (we don’t), Sony knows as well as I do that people are more willing to pay for something new and shiny than something older, cheaper and just as good. Ain’t novelty just grand? Anyway, the new console is coming whether I like it or not, and I wouldn’t be a good game blogger if I didn’t slap my keyboard for a couple hours until the internet knows my opinion on it. I have to admit, a new console would give them the opportunity to make some improvements. So what would I give the next Playstation? (Industry, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Sony)

I'd like to see a different controller.
Keep the design, just separate it like Wii and keep the second analogue stick and triggers, and throw in a small, detachable LCD screen, infrared sensor, and a camera and you can't lose.

Of course Sony could release the system with the Vita fully compatible, but I don't see that happening.

I'm not worried about backwards compatibility much. Just play Ps3 games and we're good.

Let's have a few less network problems.

What else could you ask for?

Everything you said is just a terrible idea.

The PS4 just needs proper triggers on the pad. So they should offer two versions classic dualshock and one with actual triggers everything else with the pad can remain the same. The analogs can do with some tweaking for better aiming for shooters they don't feel as sturdy as the 360 controller. But I'm done with Xbox next gen I won't be gettin it an not paying for live no longer. PS4 is the only console ill get next gen.

I'm 100% sure the PS4 will play PS3 games cause they use blu ray discs unlike the ps2 games which most likely won't be supported but playable through ps store an gaikai.

Yeah you're right
full compatibility with Vita

go ahead and keep the super nintendo controller, because that's what it is

Make a bigger, adult sized controller and im happy. Im not interested in motion this or that, nor a gimic controller screen.

So sick of these articles

These articles are getting tedious.

More on point all I want is for Sony to focus on making games,but with more variety(as in Rpg's,action games and such).

One thing Sony really Needs to do is start advertising.

" what authors that write these type of articles need to do"



*article end*

I think it's safe to say that sony needs to make more of a forward push to better advertise. its really getting ridiculous...its almost as if i feel like i could do a better job just slapping something together for a playstation product than sony can.

Kevin Butler was definitely a sign sony was getting back on track with it. and now? i honestly havent seen a single vita commercial in months.

PS4 will be awesome and it will have awesome games. That's all I need to know.

Latin titles
He makes a good point about the name I suppose although I would just go with 4 to avoid the 3DS and WiiU problems with their predecessors. Playstation Magnum (the great) sounds kind cool I suppose.
