The wait is killing me!!!

But i'm glad i still have a backlog of games to complete to keep me busy.

I'm downloading the GOW:A single player demo as we speak. Looking forward to the full game along with TLOU.

All in all great times head for gamers.

The only thing that bothers me
Is why they are being so coy on pre-owned software. I don't mind the lack of other details, and it is absolutely wonderful they are giving developers the hardware specs they have always wanted. However, while he states they are focused on pleasing STUDIOS, pleasing - not PUNISHING - the end user is just as, if not more important. Some of my friends who aren't serious gamers or who are constrained financially have had some awesome moments in their lives fulfilled via used software purchases.

I understand where you are coming from. I just wish Sony would just come out and publicly address these issues that most people have, especially regarding the blockage of used games. Then again we still have GDC, E3 and TGS ahead of us. Everything will most likely be addressed during either events.

But i just think, if Sony really wanted to block used games they could have made it so with their past consoles, so why start now?

From a dev perspective that would seem great but Sony has proven to cater to the gamers so i doubt they will include this feature. Just my opinion anyway.

It amazes me seeing the retardation when it comes to the BC and current PSN titles not working on PS4. Its real simple.

The PS4 is not compatible with PS3 software. Hence, even if you bought said software on PSN and not disc based, IT IS STILL PS3 SOFTWARE! This does not mean that your purchase is not present on your account, its there, you just can't download it onto your PS4 and play it. Now notice how this is only being said for PS3 software. I have a feeling that PSOne Classics, PS2 Classics, Minis, will eventually be playable on the PS4 if not from the onset.

This sensationalist garbage is just astounding.

I don't have a problem keeping my PS3 to play PS3 games. My problem is not knowing how much longer I will be able to play those games. If a game becomes corrupted, will I be able to download it again in five years? Ten years? I want my kids to be able to experience my PS3 games some day...just like any other system. I have too many digital PS3 games to go buy them all on disc...

Any thoughts?

"Where do Sony's studios stand in terms of moving to PS4 development and possibly continuing to support the PS3? The company of course has a strong track record of supporting its older systems...

The first thing to say is you're right - when you look at PlayStation 3, the line-ups this year such as Beyond, The Last of Us and third-party games such as new Grand Theft Auto and Assassin's Creed games... PlayStation 3 is still getting some awesome games on it"

did he just confirm a new assassins creed game

We are pretty much guaranteed a new A/C game. There's a story here:

Thats strange, this interview was on another article on N4G yesterday. Except that quote was:

Denny :“Look at the games coming out on the PlayStation 3 like The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, and then on the third-party side of things another fantastic Assassin’s Creed, GTA,”

Link: http://n4g.com/news/1181604...

Was that a typo by that author or did Denny also let slip GT6 for the PS3?

Hmmm...what concerns me about used games is this interview with Eurogamer Yoshida is asked about used games and answers (after speaking to his PR advisor) is "Used games will work on PS4".

So why the sudden coyness over the issue?
