Because people like you still wonder what it looks like, and the PS4 is therefore still on your mind. It's a way to build hype, and this article shows that it's working quite well.

That's my predictions.
The 184Gbps bandwidth for the GPU is already considered a bottleneck. Use of the cloud would restrict that bandwidth to about 10Mbps for the average household.
Microsoft likes shouting that the cloud is going to make their console more powerful, but it's nothing more than PR nonsense - it's spinning the truth in such a way that people believe games are actually going to look better because of the cloud.
"By your logic PC isn't a hardcore games machine"
It isn't. PC is a general purpose machine that can play games, but it's a far cry from a games machine.
"How dare Microsoft add even more functionality to an already great gaming system what the heck where they thinking! "
It's not about the functionality. Nintendo and Sony have similar amounts of non-gaming related functionality. It's the focus that's different. Sony...
I don't see how any of those companies are relevant to this argument, and VC-1 is a video codec used by -some- of the publishers, not all.
Haha Maddens, thanks for making me laugh uncontrollably! Bubbles for that one.
I'm loving the Xbox defense force here. The conference was crap - they announced a GAMES console and spent 45 minutes of the conference talking about TV.
I look forward to seeing more at E3 of this console, but to claim that the conference was good just because they showed the box is just silly.
Sony owns patents on the BluRay technology which means Microsoft has to pay royalties to them for every Xbox they sell.
I wouldn't go as far as saying that it really means much in terms of who's going to 'win' the next generation though.
lol @ 4.9 TFLOPS
Also lol @ the people attempting to use TFLOPS as a measure of power.
This article (and its comments) are amusing, but no more than an ignorant fantasy.
Sales numbers prove if a game is good or bad? Just Dance must be an incredible game then, and Psychonauts and Shenmue must be terrible games.
I bet Zero Punctuation and TotalBiscuit sold out to Capcom. In fact, I agree with you that Capcom spent millions to pay reviewers to give high scores. That's far more likely than, you know, it actually being a good game that you just happen to dislike.
You should really have another look at how statistics work Steve. 3000 people is representative of all gamers with an error margin of about 5%.
The other 99% of the book?
A survey over 3000 people is actually pretty representative of at least a very large segment of the population.
Secondly, it doesn't matter who put up the illegal version of the game. Software is sold by license, not by copy, and therefore anybody who downloads and uses the product without a license is effectively stea...
Lol the only reason it's coming to Microsoft's press conference is because Microsoft wants to give us the same press conference they've given us for the past 4 years.
The problem with this tech is logistics. They state in the video you need to put a projector on your coffee table. What does that mean?
1. You're going to have to buy a projector for this to work
2. You're going to have a projector on your table
3. You'll have cables running over your table and floor
Whilst I'm aware you could hang it on your sealing, or place it somewhere behind you, it would still imply a significant pain with...
They're going to announce "Final Fantasy 13-4: Lighting Returns. Again."
So I suppose I should also boycott Tomb Raider because they're running a campaign with Rustlers at the moment.
But the question is - was the problem actually solved? Do the hackers not have access to the service anymore, and was the loophole sealed? An hour seems like a terribly short time to do so.
and Battlefield, Medal of Honor, Need for Speed, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Command & Conquer, Crysis.
The company has countless franchises that perform exceptionally well in the market - like you said, EA isn't going anywhere, but it's not only because of their Sports branch.
