Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Wild Speculation time: I think the playstation 4 will be more of a concept
that is to say, there will be no single stand alone playstation 4. Rather, the playstation 4 will come in a variety of appliances, like already built into TVs, or inside other consumer electronics equipment. Of course there will be stand alone PS4s, but I think there will be multiple models, varying across price range.
In this sense, it'll be a realization of the old 3DO conept, where a console was simply a standard which could be built into a range of compatible devices. Although, surly, the playstation 4 would stay on sony devices.
I also believe Sony is gonna announce either a partnership with steam, or develop their own steam clone, with cloud saving for the PS4. Games you purchase will also be linked to your PSN account, and you'll be able to play them on any Playstation 4 system, with your saves simply following you via cloud.
These are just my own wild speculation as to what the ps4 will be. I offer no proof or guarantee.
