    Its going to be useless for a few months after it comes out if there is no backwards compatibility.

    Yeah the first rumour from Kotaku was that Sony wouldn't be using a Cell iteration for the next Playstation:
    http://kotaku.com/5889410/playstatio...-wild-theories

    Then Kotaku said it would be called Orbis, and feature an AMD x86 CPU and Southern Islands GPU:
    http://kotaku.com/5896996/the-next-p...re-the-details

    SemiAccurate (yes, that's their name, and they've been around for a while) also reported the AMD CPU/GPU, and went on to talk about stacked dies too:
    http://semiaccurate.com/2012/03/02/s...th-an-amd-gpu/

    It was pointed out that this is a real web site:
    http://orbis.scedev.net/

    Then there was a company called The Velvet Owl Design Studio who had a page up (since taken down) talking about the design work they'd undertaken for Sony on a product called Orbis, with these pics:








    There isn't much concrete stuff at the moment. Orbis could just be a Playstation product (much like Move was on the PS3). The only source of the AMD CPU/GPU story is Kotaku (SA probably got it from there).

    If Sony don't use an iteration of the Cell for the next Playstation, there won't be backwards compatibility. I don't think Sony are too worried about that though, because this generation has shown that they can just make a new upscaled/up-res'd/upgraded version of an old game and sell it as a new game (e.g. all of the 'HD collections' which have sold really well this gen).

    My main concern is that the popularity of the Wii and Kinect will mean that Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft will all put out shithouse consoles next gen which focus on casuals rather than the hardcore market. At this stage though we have absolutely no concrete info so it's all just speculation.

    I am not looking forward to PS4. I still feel that my PS3 has may more hours of love to give me.

    Still, even upon release I wont purchase for at least 12 months, so there isn't too much for me to worry about.

    I imaging a new console will make things interesting here at AUF, there will be a definite divide between those with PS3 and those with PS4, especially if there is no backward capability.

    Yes it will be interesting, AUFs never had to deal with the release of a next gen console.

    I for one don't care about backwards compatibility. Didn't worry me with PS3 (just used my PS2 for PS2 games) and I'll just use my PS3 for PS3 games.

    Well no-one I know has heard about this, but that isn't a real suprise. That picture however has been doing the rounds for 4 years, so I wouldn't take much from that.

    And I also kinda agree with Stiffy. By the looks of that Velvet Owl thing, Orbis could just be a PS3 accessory to compete with KINECT. Would make sense because they have wanted to do that since KINECT's release. They have resolutely said that a PS3 replacement is not in the works, If they pull a replacement out of the hat next year I would be extrememly suprised.

    Yeah I've seen the pic before, too. TBH it's fucking ugly, and there is no way they will release something that is ugly. Plus imagine how uncomfortable that controller would be.

    Yeah that's a design by a fan. There are heaps of them floating around. They usually look really cool but are completely impractical when you think about PCB design, cooling, etc. Some other ones that get brought out a lot (including the one you're talking about):

    They all look pretty cool to me. When you take away the requirement of actually having to build something (i.e. don't need to worry about actually putting electronics inside) and can just focus on aesthetics you can come up with some very nifty looking things.

    This is all good and all.

    But why would everyone be making so many games for all types of consoles and OS's when these things are "Around he corner." To me it is a bit strange.

    Because the Xbox 360 and PS3 will still make a shit load of money even after the next gen are released.

    Spot on. In fact I'm sure I read that they make more money after the new gen of console is released, because the low prices entice people to buy, publishers still support old platforms, and each unit get cheaper and cheaper to manufacture as the cost of technology lowers.

    I hope that's true. Im not 100% as Sony hasn't said anything on the contrary but who knows, they may be keeping it secret.

    Sony Corp. considered but ultimately rejected a download-only plan for its next videogame console, people familiar with the matter said, opting to include an optical disk drive rather than break with decades-old industry practice.

    Sony is planning a 2013 release for the successor to its PlayStation 3 console, people familiar with the matter said.

    ....Sony decided against a download-only model largely because Internet connections are too inconsistent around the world, one of the people familiar with Sony's thinking said. Because game files are large, customers in countries where Internet connections are relatively slow would be hobbled by a requirement to download games, the person said. A Sony spokesman declined to comment.

    They should do both, release a hard copy and also put a copy on the PSN (they kind of do it now, but only with a few games)

    They're doing that exact same thing for wii U.

    They'll have hard copies and digital versions of Nintendo games coming out.

    But yeah, like u said they're already doing that now with the Ps3 but not with all the games.

    I dont really want a PS4. I only got my PS3 at christmas and I want to be able to play that, without knowing that nobody else's playing the same console. Backwards compadibility is something they should have. This locking a game to a PSN is ridiculous. Out of the 5 games i have hard copys for, only one isnt pre owned, and only because i got BF3 at christmas, and its rather hard to get a pre owned BF3 2 months after it comes out. Pre owned games are great. Cheap, and if they dont work, just bring it in and get a replacement. And the name Orbis is stupid. Why?? why name it orbis??
