PS(4) Announcement Later This Month!

The Wall Street Journal, of all of the publications they get first call?, has postulated that Sony plans to announce the release of the next PlayStation system on February 20th during a live-streaming event. They have reported that people “familiar with the matter” have told their reporters that the next PlayStation system will be showcased at said event. It will also be released later this year just in time for the holidays.

And that’s it. That’s all they have. No sources or links to tie it back to. Just that. Enjoy!

I’m still wary of a new console release. I think a lot of it is that the PS3 still feels like a massively powerful beast and it still hasn’t really taken off here in the U.S. like its predecessor. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 6 years since it was first sold. I still feel like my baby is brand new!

Sony, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL SANITY MAKE THE PS4 BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE. You know where you messed up? Having different systems do different things. At least the 360 allowed you to continue playing Xbox games and models have been consistent. Arcade = No hard drive. Elite = hard drive. That’s what we want. To keep playing the things we paid for. So don’t do this “oh well you have the 40 and 60 that are backwards, and the 80 that isn’t. But we no longer make the 40 or 60, but now we have a 20 and a new 40 that isn’t backwards. And now we no longer make those, so now there’s 80 and 120.” I mean argh! It’s a pain. Keep it simple and straight forward. All backwards compatible and don’t change up the system models every year.
