THE NEXT PLAYSTATION, AT A GLANCE
Is called, or at least carries the working codename, "Orbis".
Is scheduled for a Holiday 2013 release.
Won't be backwards compatible with PS3 games.
Will lock new games to a PSN account as an anti-used games measure.
New games can be bought either on Blu-Ray or downloaded.
Current specs are an AMD x64 CPU and AMD Southern Islands GPU
fu*k Sony. This is why I was iffy about buying my PS3. How the fu*k can PS3 play PS1 games but not PS2? well I know which of the three next-gen consoles I'm gonna pass on first. Dont' really want that Wii U sh*t either but at least that still lets me play my Wii games. so Microsoft what's good with the new Xbox tho?

btw why don't they let these consoles ride out a bit longer? like damn i just bought my PS3 a month ago (mad late i know, but a n*gga is broke n can't afford sh*t on release) and now a new one's coming out next year? fu*k it tho I knew we were heading towards the next gen of consoles but they do this sh*t too fast for me.

Sony probably has a good marketing strat. for the name. Can't bash it flat out because of that.

To everyone crying about possibly not having Backwards Compatibility, just keep your PS3. BC is going to be a thing of the past. Even MS gave up on it.



You kidding me? Take a look at Battlefield 3 on the PC in 1080p 60fps then look at the console versions. You WILL see a difference.

I understand where you coming from but I don't play fps games or games on the computer. What I am talking about is from one console to another pulse my TV has 1080p 3D 120hz and looks great. I know everything can always get better. Even if I had the best computer on the market in 6 months it will be old news. Until there is a huge change my PS3 is top of the line to me.


I think the next big thing is 4k right if they include this in the orbis that will mean I will have to buy a new tv to use that option. The orbis pulse the tv is going to cost so doe. How much better of a picture will I get ? Correct me if I am wrong from my understanding you have to have a movie screen to notice the difference 4k will bring to the table?

IF this is true...you guys aren't reading it fully... You can still trade in games with this method...just if someone bought that game since it is used they would be locked out of all the content EXCEPT for the single player cmapaigns... (everything else will be unlocked with the purchase of an Online pass)
thats pretty much what EA does with their games right now. for example, madden 2012.

i doubt sony wouldnt make it BCC. that would just mean less PS3 games sold also.

Too early to listen to these B.S. roomers. Most of it sound like sh*t. Aint none of that sh*t sticking to the next PS3. They would lose too much money and especially that garbage a.ss 2013 release date that's definitely not happening.

Why are so many people saying fu*k Sony over rumors that are probably not true? There are other reasons to say fu*k sony, but not this. Just like the rumors for the 360, don't listen to them, because all of it is probably bullsh*t.

Just read this on Tomshardware

The source also provided some specs, but we've heard these before: an AMD x64 CPU and an AMD Southern Islands GPU. Now let's point out one other small detail that may have not cropped up in the PlayStation 4 rumor mill before: AMD's support for BlueStacks. For the uninitiated, BlueStacks is an Android emulator for Windows 7 that allows the user to purchase and use Android apps from four markets, or import installed apps from their smartphone.

That said, given Sony's familiarity to Android, it's possible the company may be working with BlueStacks for a PlayStation version so that developers aren't required to create a PS4-specific version. This is speculation of course, but there's an underlying circle going on that may not be coincidental: Sony producing Android phones, AMD supporting an Android emulator, Sony using an AMD CPU and GPU in its console.

Being a PC head, what are your thoughts on the highlighted specs for a console? How much of a jump wouldnt be from the current ps3?

I think the CPU/GPU specs are great. Southern islands is the latest GPU from AMD that's being used in their new 7900 series cards so Sony is giving us the newest hardware. If the rumors for MS using the GPU (forgot name of it) then Sony is beating them in that department. Ontop of that the PS4 GPU will support DX11 & 11.1 while the Xbox GPU if I recall can only support DX10. Then again I think Sony will just continue to use OpenGL so I don't think that point matters but I'm throwing it out there anyway.

As for the CPU, I'd like to know if its 4 or more cores CPU. This is the only part thats a little "weaker" if your compare the rumored specs for both systems. I'm using AMD in my PC but even I know the Intels perform better, but at a hefty price tag.

Graphically we WILL see a leap. It might not be a gigantic one in the beginning but it will impress people, especially people who don't game on a PC. Also I believe since the hardware for both consoles will be virtually identical we won't be seeing many problems with Multi-Plat games like we have this gen.


DIO if you read my post you would see nothing about Sony & Android connection is in the OP.
