    How's that bs? Used games are necessary, and internet connections go out, and when it does that's when single player games come in handy.

    As for the PC, the DRM and other hoops you have to go through to get them running is annoying, consoles work immediately generally. And upgrading parts is annoying when things don't cooperate like they should, or are DOA.

    Really? They're above anything we see now (on consoles).

    Nothing on browser and you can use a bluetooth keyboard on the PS3 so I doubt it will be removed from the PS4.

    Streaming and that I would say would be possible.

    It's been confirmed that you can turn all the social stuff off on the PS4.

    But the leap seems more insignificant.

    I've had top of the line graphical PCs for a long time and Sega/Genesis/PS1/PS2/PS3.

    The jump up seemed way less than normal for me.

    Hmm I suppose. There was a lot going on aside from graphics. Perhaps they've hit the ceiling for the moment in the graphics department.

    You can't expect a leap like the one seen from PS1 to PS3 anymore. I doubt that will ever happen again. The new gen will be more about details... better textures, AI, animations, drawing distances, etc.

    With that said, it's still too early to tell how improved the visuals will be compared to the current gen. As I recall, Gears was the first game that truly looked visually impressive and it was released a year after the 360 launch.

    Sony needs to hit a home run with PS4. They have been losing ground to Xbox ever since Kinect came out. Additionally as console games have gotten more complicated and smart phones and tablets have gotten more popular simple games like angry birds are cutting into the console market share.

    Sony is in trouble elsewhere. The change in music technology has killed them. Additionally they have lost ground in the TV market to companies like Sharp and Samsung (It must drive Japanese execs at Sony to be losing to a Korean company). They need to hit a home run with the PS4 basically to save the company.
