Playstation 4 The Facts and The Unconfirmed

For anyone that has spent the last few days under a rock and have just surfaced: Hello, the PS4 was announced. After a dazzling event, Sony have laid to rest a few rumors and sparked a whole new array of questions, so after the dust has settled and the hype has mellowed, what is fact and what is fiction? (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

We know about 4K, it's supported for videos and photos, but not for games.

I was kind of hoping all those terrible things I'd heard would be in the "unconfirmed" section.

Oh well.

I have $800 worth of digital PSN content. I don't see myself ever upgrading to a PS4 unless I can play the greater portion of that content on it.

Otherwise I'll stick to my PS3, and when it inevitably breaks, odds are I'll look for a replacement via PC emulation before Sony.

I was upset as well about the digital content. This will turn away alot of gamers sony better listen and hopefully change this. Most people bought the digital content thinking they could keep it for life and frankly its a slap in the face to psn users who have alot invested in digital content.

I don't know. Sony has a long history of ignoring consumers. That's why they've had so much trouble with their hardware since, well, the PS2 era.

I think the inevitable result is that myself, and gamers in my position, won't buy the PS3 at launch--are part of the same demographic of "early adopters" game companies rely on to get that early install base they need. We're the ones who bought PSPs and PS3s and Vitas at launch, and if we don't support the PS4, odds are it will lose developer support, too.

We saw this with the Vita. The lack of UMD support alienated many PSP owners, who refused to upgrade to Vita... the smaller install base resulted in diminished developer support, which resulted in diminishing sales.

It's a self-perpetuating cycle. And one that's very difficult to get out of once you're in it.
