    My hypothesis is that they will keep the online gaming free as well as access to paid apps like Netflix/Hulu/whatever. They will bundle nicer features like cross game chat, Gaikai B/C and perhaps make the interface ad-free if you upgrade to the premium service.

    They won't make basic/mandatory functionality a part of the premium service so much as they will make it just plain dumb not to have it. It would be a win/win for them. Sony knows they will never sell 100 million consoles if they start nickel and diming out basic functions and alienate the fanbase they have built up to this point.

    Then again, they could prove me wrong. In which case, I just budgeted $500 towards a graphics card upgrade later this year. Sony, use the carrot, not the stick!

    My take on Tyrone's tweet? He's hinting that the next Playstation will not be called the PS4. Or he could just be playing dumb to avoid leaking the inevitable.


    Next Gen top picks:
    PS4: Infamous SS, DriveClub
    One: Project spark, Forza 5
    Multi: Watchdogs, The crew, FFXV, KHIII

    I agree that it would be smart to keep the online play free. However, they might still do it for the sole reason that where else are those people going to go? Switching to xbox means they still pay, switching to nintendo isn't really an option since the Wii U won't be on par with PS4. The only option is PC, which some hardcore gamers might do, but that is not something the vast majority of the general public (and the majority of console owners) would even consider.

    That being said, I doubt they'll charge for online play. It's something that helps differentiate them from Xbox and could be a major factor considering how much the industry is moving towards multiplatform.

    Looks like there will be a lot of big players there for the event. Sucker Punch, SE, Santa Monica, and I'm sure GG. Shaping up well.

    With AC 4 now(somewhat)announced I would not doubt Ubisoft will show. Though they may save it until their press event next week.

    I just got done playing that game last night. Ever since it released, I always find my way back to that game every now and then. I still wish they made a sequel.

    Sony is smart to hold PS4 unveiling instead of waiting for E3. Even Xbox owners will pay attention to the event later today.

    Exactly, I was thinking about that too.

    Instead of waiting, they can get people into it now...it's definitely an advantage when people have been wanting something for a while now.

    If they had come out with it at E3, which would've been obvious, it wouldn't have had the impact that it may now...because everyone is excited and wants to see...even if they hate Sony...because this is about being a gamer rather than having sides.

    I would've been "almost" as excited if MS was revealing something, I just wanna see what these consoles can do.

    Off-topic-semi-on-topic: I dig the new PS4 logo, if it's not fake...very 80s and Sony should go with it...surprised that they may be choosing "4" as it is seen as a bad omen there...if the news is accurate.

    Are you referring to this?
