Predicting The Future Of The PlayStation 4

Game Informer - Sony's reveal of the PlayStation 4 excited the industry with its visions of next-gen games, the ability to play legacy PlayStation titles, the power of cloud gaming, and more. But will we see all of these features as stated, or are they just empty promises?

Here are a list of some of the PlayStation 4's features as we currently know them, and given the info at hand, I assess how likely it is we'll see them come to fruition as planned. (PS4)

The future seems very bright for Sony and the PS4

Agreed. I predict another console gen domination and Sony's 3rd console gen win. Looks like Sony will have the hardcore all to themselves.


Yes, 90% of the games will be the same but the PS4 is easy to develop for so those 90% of games will be identical and one console will allow you to play online for free and one console have already reassured what we know in that they will not lose focus on core gaming and they will deliver on core exclusives. Nothing wrong with expanding console features but when it's at the expense of the core gamers then it's a problem. Both Sony and MS introduced casual gaming options but Sony didn't put all their eggs in that basket and forgot about the core. Sony is STILL delivering new IPs like The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls. When was the last MS funded core new IP? Alan Wake back in 2010? It's 2013. But look at all of the new casual Kinect new IPs like Disneyland Kinect, Sesame Street Kinect, Disney Pixar Kinect game, and many others. Go to any site and any forum and you will see displeased and concerned Xbox owners. I know you think EVERYONE who owns an Xbox is 100% happy with it and those who are not are PS3 fanboys who don't own an Xbox but that couldn't be further from the truth. I know you are MS's greatest defender across the entire internet but there are just some things even you can't defend. It just makes you look foolish for trying. Yet you call other fanboys, lol.

Didn't Sony break out the Move at their event? I think I saw a glowing controller, mention of a Kinect like camera, and a social network for a "share" button......

I think you are kidding yourself if you think any one company will dominate, we are probably past that stage of consoles and gaming, especially since the next Xbox and PlayStation will both offer 90+% of the same games!

So that begs the question, if 90+% of the games are the exact same, who's abandoning what now?

Once again you weren't banned forever, but I'll continue to send in those reports and screen shots of you trolling!

So we are agreed 90+% of the games will be the same, which means 90+% are going to be core games yes?

Also, we haven't heard any details on Sony's online pricing, it might not be free, you don't really know, but I suspect Xbox Live Gold isn't holding back gamer's who game as a hobby.

So you blame Microsoft for having a successful casual device, where as Sony's was almost a direct copy of the Wii mote and flopped? The games you listed weren't developed by Microsoft first party studios, and I was too busy playing things like Forza, Gears, Witcher 2 and Halo to notice.

Imagine a gamer who enjoys a bit of everything, they'd probably be pretty happy with their Xbox 360, you don't have one, remember the fact Gamertag you gave me that doesn't exist? Ya, go sniff Kaz's underwear some more kiddo.

Jek, you call him a troll when you do the exact same thing.

Personally, I think the future is very bright for the PS4. Sony's playing the right cards.

The future is bright for PS4 but that was a nonsensical article.
miyamoto  +   923d ago
Everytime there is a new PlayStation to be launched Sony rocks the gaming industry.
PSOne PS2 PSP PS3 PSV PS4 wow!

I dont see any negatives at this point. Of course we will not know the full intent of Sony (and Microsoft) until the consoles are released.

I know its a pipe dream, but I just want console games to support other formats, ala 16:10 and 21:9.

But I will be purchasing the ps4 and I wish it the best.

PS4 is the Future

i predict ps4 will fail miserably because of the backlash from angry gamers that they cant play there psn purchases on ps4 that they thought they would have access to for life or at least another generation.
DivineAssault  +   923d ago
thats an easy prediction.. It will be a huge win for all core gamers.. The must have nx gen console & the others are secondary.. If rumors about nx box are true & wii u doesnt fix the mess they made of things..
