    Haven't seen much since I'm at work. They've shown the new Dual Shock 4 which I think has Move sensor bar along the top. They showed it working, looked cool but I didn't hear any of it to know what they were demonstrating with it.

    Showed off Unreal Engine 4.

    Then they were talking about social integration. I think you can watch others what they are doing.

    Now they're talking about Gaikai.
    Gaikai sounds pretty awesome, integrating it with instant gaming on the Ps4 and Vita. Won't work here since our network sucks.

    PS3 games won't work on the PS4 but Gaikai are working on something that will make it work with a Cloud Service.

    Man I'm concerned about all the time they are putting into this ...

    “We created the first social network dedicated to gaming”


    “With one button from your controller you can broadcast live to your friends.”

    “Friends can post comments on your screen”

    “You can ask a friend to virtually take over your game to help you beat a level”

    Sorta like the Wii U… you can transfer a PS4 game from the TV screen to the Vita screen

    “Long term goal is to make all games playable on the PS Vita”

    I just want superior system technology and capability. I don't care if my friend knows every moment I'm playing a game. And I don't give a damn about having a Vita.

    The controller looks sweet though.

    A lot of the feedback is not all that great from what I'm reading. Everyone is underwhelmed.

    The specs are not all that great. I'll wait on Microsoft.

    I HATE all of the social crap. I just want to play the games. I don't want to post about it on Facebook, tweet my victory on Madden, I don't want to watch my friends play online, hell most of the time I don't want to play anyone online.

    The rumour is Microsoft will be always online.
