I will say my PS3 was always on, but well ventilated, always cleaned and kept in a smoke free environment.

My original NES still works... Same with my PS2, PS1, Super NES and Nintendo 64... Why do my PS3s die?
Because you touch yourself at night.

My first 60b fat PS3 was a tank until I started playing MW2, then my blu ray laser died. I fixed/replaced it myself, but then it happened again and I said efffff it. Either way, tying a game to a console's serial number or whatever is retarded.

For the record, my NES, SNES, Genesis, SMS, N64, Gamecube, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, Atari Lynx and DS all still work. I'm sure if I found my coleco and atari stuff they would too.

Can someone tell me why I would consider dropping 400 bucks or more on this? I have been looking over forums and what people think the features are, and I dont see why I would stop using my PS3? Unless the games and graphics are night and day over the PS3, which I havent heard about, I dont see it. Am I missing something?

Yes, you are missing something. Eventually all video game consoles are going to be geared to not allow second-hand use of their video games. Also, the little that I have seen regarding game engines that are suggested to be for the PS4 have been absolutely mind blowing. If you can't afford to purchase the console for whatever reason or if you'd rather sink $400 into your car, it's not going to make a difference. You'd probably have the PS4 longer than you car though... Either way millions of units will be sold world wide and by the time everyone has one and you don't, you'll end up buying it when it's cheaper anyway.

Also, by the time the PS4 has been on the shelf for 6 months, you'll be twiddling your thumbs waiting for a decent PS3 release that will never come. The PS4 is the future and no one wants to stay behind in the past.

I don't think the game's graphics COULD be all that better.. I mean that is more the responsibility of the game designers... but the machine will certainly be more powerful, will probably allow for completely disc free use (I assume everything will be downloaded), and will ultimately serve as a gaming console, Apple TV, Tivo, etc... or at least that's my guess

Honestly there isn't.

Motion control? Meh. Sony didnt do a very good job with move.

Better graphics ? Meh. Still won't be near pc levels

4K Bluray player? Meh. Nobody owns 4k Tvs and bluray is still good enough.

If you look at the sales numbers video games are dying.

At the end of the day it's incremental.

Maybe you won't rush out and buy one like those idiots who camp out on launch day but eventually get one when you need a replacement.

Sponger would agree.

Id say stop playing video game all day & 6+hours and have fun outdoor.

That's why America have so much kids/teen/adult saying ; IM BORED!

Wanna do somenthing, you must spend money and if you don't have any money your basically a depressed fker in a way society makes it out to be.


I'm from Brazil; came to America 15 years old and video games has destroyed human society in a way we cant realize it, but me! cuz I came from a city/place where everyone would get together outdoor and make up a game where everyone could play together using a single ball other materials ' be creative ..

I knoe you can socialize easier on a video game online but nothing like it when its LIVE PERSON TO PERSON GAME OUTDOOR.

(If you disagree with me ' its okay, but that's because you never experienced that side of life) when whole neighborhood friends are together outside including females playing a game of hide and seek etc.

You guys think that they'd release a SONY 4k high def tv today to accompany their console, that would be super smart!



Looks like it would go with this info-piece.

I just can't believe that the playstation has been around 20 years... makes me feel OLD and reminds me that there is a massive chunk of people who have never known life WITHOUT a sony console (who else is with me remembering the days of sega, n64, and nintendo?

Checking in right here didn't the PS1 come out in 1995-1996? it's not quite 20 years yet.

Can we just go back to when Sega was around? No cell phones, my only trouble was the nuns.

The graphics could be a lot better with better tech. Most PS3 games only run at 720p just to keep frame rate up, and especially on cross platform games, the detailing is turned way down compared to what a $900 PC can handle.
