These are quite possibly the most anticipated features that have to be included when designing the next gen Sony home console- Playstation 4.
lol fail list especially the tech specs 24GB RAM and DirectX 12 lol lololololololol no. And the boomerang looks uncomfortable and stupid there are good reasons it was scraped.
24 gigs of RAM is way too much. Isn't DirectX made by MS? How will Sony get it in the PS4? 1080p at 60fps seems about right though
They use OpenGL for ps3, but Microsoft won't be sad and won't let them use directx but then again its competition so its most likey that Sony wont use it (directx)
Well Blu-Ray is sony so maybe a trade off? You can use Blu but we can use DX.. People seem to forget that outside of gaming MS and Sony work together on quite a bit of things. Vaio anyone?? It's not that far out that they come to an agreement like that. And 24GB of ram lol
totally agree 24 gigs ram? what is this fool thinking? if we got 24 gigs of ram, we would be charged like $800 for the console. then bitches like him <the author> will whine on why the PS4 is way too expensive. then he will write articles on price drops. how sony messed up. can sony recover, PS4 is doomed articles.
My list: 1. Expanded bluray drive with 100+ GB discs. 2. Decent amount of RAM this time (LOL, not 24 GB, more like 2-4 GB of XDR2 since it's much more expensive than regular DDR3). 3. AMD Southern Islands based GPU. 4. Ditch XMB, implement more visually appealing menu system. 5. Integrate PS Store into the menu. 6. Complete redesign of PS Store, meaning better content classification, etc. 7. No more installing of downloaded content. It should be automatically done in the background. 8. Cross-game chat. 9. More ergonomic DualShock controller. For example, I have large hands so it doesn't feel comfortable (too cramped). Also L2/R2 should get a complete overhaul, fingers can never get a good grip on them. 10. Overall better marketing of all thing Playstation. Sony relies too much on word of mouth principle. They should aggresively push PS4 and exclusives on the market. 11. Include wireless headset in the box. 12. (much) Better browser, possibly integrate Chrome. 13. Better PSN stability, no more random disconnects.
@jaosobno Everything you say there are brilliant points, especially number 10. Sonys idea of marketing is to let the Playstation brand sell itself, unfortunately. They've done well with K.B adverts though, giving their product a personality.
apparently the features desired are needed but not the PS4 specially at this point of time when games like Killzone 3, Uncharted 3 are starting to show off the sheer power of PS3 console. i am personally craving for PS4 but i believe there should be conssiderable time for its launch. Fingers crossed.... >_>
Cross game chat,PS3 backward compatibility and an awesome list of AAA launch titles with a smart pricing might make Sony win the Next gen console war with release of PLAYSTATION 4.
Having mkv support encourages film piracy, It wouldn't be that logical if they did implement mkv support ,especially because Sony profit big time from blu-ray, digital video rentals & from their film studios
gives one less reason for hackers to hack the console legitimately. in fact, i'm pulling for them to include a better media center interface since it will be DLNA certified anyway...
There are too many wishlists out there. Everybody has an opinion, however do we really need 30 articles about different features people want to see in the next gen consoles?
My list: Graphics: cuz I enjoy most games.. I get a real high with games that have amazing visuals. Controller: WTF is with the L2 and R2? Also, make it more ergonomic and slightly bigger. Web Browser: A decent one please. Even w/o flash. Better youtube support "Arcade": throw in a free "kinect/move" in/with the main console. ("Casual" "movement" gaming is still a decent market) "DUH" List: better BD player. "DECENT GAMES" ASAP (pshh obviously they'll have em after seeing the games as of late) "Make it easier for the devs" kit. Im sold for 500 bucks.
You are right. Chrome or Firefox integrated web browser would be a very welcome addition.
1 TB SDD HDD WTF it will never happen. 1 TB SDD HDD $400 when ps4 comes out. lol
these articles are posted here a little too much...
What would be the point of having NEAR on a console?
Direct-X is a MS technology, it will never be on a non-MS platform. XBox is short for Direct-XBox, I don't see MS allowing another Direct-X console. Forget 60fps, next-gen needs to all be 1080p 120fps, since newer HDTVs have been supporting 120hz.
This guy is a idiot......... ''24GB RAM or 8Gb Ram Split(System 5Gb XDR2/Graphics 3Gb XDR or GDDR5)'' This would cost a lot and also would a waste of money you do not need more than 4gb in console because console simply don't have so much running in background like a PC. Not mention made specially for two or configs not millions and millions. DirectX-12 I don't even need to say how stupid this comment is not mention dx12 will not be about for a long time. ''Enhanced Cell 2(3 or 4 PPE’s & Upto 32 SPU’s)@4Ghz+'' Again the guy shows he is idiot. The cell was hard work for devs some mastered and made some best graphical console games out there but there is still many devs out that just can't get it. It was also big financial mistake so I don't see the cell having a future. ''At least 2 USB 3.0 slots'' Ah something that's not idiotic ''Blu-ray 100Gb+@ 10 X Speed'' Even with fast drives loading times could increased. There is only small amount of games ( aprox 4 ) that have used past 40gbs. ''1 TB SDD HDD'' Now I starting to wonder if this guy is from future. Think of it like SSD may drop price but not enough for Sony get one over a 1tb HDD for next to nothing even 2tb drive. The ps3 he designed after all modified bits manufacturing ram that's not even production (xddr2) making a new cell fit small slim console well I'm sure it would be first $999 console.
You are absolutely right dude. Not just future but Distant future...
They got the games right this gen.I just want a better free online experience.
