take a look at this news!

So how many of you out there have a PlayStation 3? Nobody? A few? Okay, we have a few hands up in the back row there. Hey, it's cool; the fact is that not many people have a PlayStation 3. Why? Oh, the reasons are many. It's expensive, there aren't many games for it, and it represents one of Sony's greatest collective PR blunders. In all, I think it's safe to say that the PlayStation 3 has just been a big, fat, expensive failure from day one. Know why I think it's safe to say so? Because SCEA President Kaz Hirai said so, that's why:

"...the PlayStation 3 has been nothing but a big, fat, expensive failure from day one. It was a novel idea, and I suppose we have to at least credit our late President Ken Kutaragi for his... ah... hubris, shall we say, but the fact of the matter is that it just didn't resonate with the public, and it's particularly pathetic when measured against the success of our last-generation console, the PlayStation 2.
Ouch... not pulling any punches, eh? Hey, if the President of SCEA tells you that the PS3 is a failure, who are we to argue? It seems that, for all intents and purposes, he's abandoning ship:

The PlayStation 3 is a sinking boat. It's been leaky from day one, we've tried our best to plug up the holes, but for every hole we repair, three more pop up. We're under attack from all sides, and it's all we can do to keep our heads above water. Well, no more. As of today, we're changing ships. PlayStation 3 is in the past, locked away in our darkest, most tragic memories. Now is the time to embrace the future: PlayStation 4.
I'll admit, the news came as a bit of a shock to me, and I think it's safe to say, to ALL of us here at RPGamer. I know the PlayStation 3 was sailing some rough waters, but I thought they had been calming of late? I guess I was wrong. I mean, damn... this has to set some kind of record, as far as short console life spans go. But enough soliloquizing; what is this PlayStation 4 he speaks of?

In yet another surprise, Hirai told us that the PlayStation 4 will be released in November of 2008. That's right folks; Sony's next-gen system will be here in time for Christmas. When asked what kind of specs it will pack, Hirai gave a shocking response:

PlayStation 4 will represent a significant step backwards in terms of horsepower. We learned our lesson with PlayStation 3: people honestly don't care about owning the cutting-edge of technology. What they want is cheap goods. They want to spend as little money as they possibly can, and upon its release, PlayStation 4 will be the cheapest console on market. I can't really give a solid price point right now, but I will say this: it's going to be cheap.
Speaking further about the system's capabilities, Rai revealed that PlayStation 4 will play PS1 and PS2 games, but will not be backwards-compatible with PlayStation 3. When asked why this decision was made, he simply responded "Is there honestly anything from that library that you would want to play? No? Exactly." When asked what unique features the PlayStation 4 will bring to the table, Rai smiled and proudly held up a prototype of the PlayStation 4's controller, which looked somewhat like a Wii-mote. "Rather than just focus on how they look," he said "PlayStation 4 is going to revolutionize the way games are played. I can't reveal too much now, but I promise you that it will be made very clear in the coming weeks."

Well, there you have it. The saga of the PlayStation 3 is officially over folks, although I think it's safe to say that it ended quite a bit sooner than we expected. But then, I have to respect Sony for admitting their blunder and wiping the slate clean, rather than continuing down this vicious cycle that the PS3 continually feeds. To be honest, I can't wait to hear more about the PlayStation 4 - in particular, I want to know more about that controller. Shown below is an EXCLUSIVE image of an early prototype build of both the console AND its unique controller. Feast your eyes, and then get ready to count down for August!



Sorry to be rude but is that even true?it looks just like PS2 and the remote thing is somewhat came from Wii...just curious,that's all...thank you!^_^

What a douche. Wait till the end of this year; the tables will definatly turn.

As for your big fat failing lie, you've wasted around 5 minutes of my life.

I'm going to assume that picture was a big, fat sarcasm, unless you are truly retarded.

Here, use this:


It's a big, fat PS5.
