Lol, no used games. No backwards compatibility. $500-$600.

The PlayStation brand is officially dead.

Kinda early for the d00med to start going. Let's just wait until we see some official word before we start with the "dead" speak.

If true it makes me believe that they will not be the only console to do that, that would be signing your own death sentence as far as the no "used games"

And who is pushing that anyway I dont see how no used games really affects Sony or MS except for maybe their exclusive games possibly

If Microsoft and Sony go the registering your disc based games to your account route, the Wii U starts looking a lot better despite its flaws.

PC has done it for years.

Consoles are just finally catching up to PCs from half a decade ago, for good and bad.

I agree that if PS4 won't let you play used games but the Xbox 720 will, then the PS4 will lose the battle... I hate the idea as I've bought a lot of used games over the years, but I also like the idea of supporting developers/publishers. Really by the time you can get a used game at a decent price, you can get the same game new for just a little more. I very rarely buy a game right when it's released at $60. It has to be something really special.

At that point keeping my PS3 or 360 sounds better

Which is relevant to my post how?

I don't game on the PC.

Why so vexed friend?

So does this mean that gamefly and gamestop go out of business?

Console crowd is whining about used games. PC games used to offer that luxury as well. Well, you wanted to move closer to PC gaming with better graphics, smoother gameplay, more online access, you also get no used games, digital media, and ads.

You've already got the digital media and ads.

WiiU will never look better than PS4 or Xbox720. Ever. I imagine they've thought about doing it and are putting it out there to test the waters a little and see what kind of backlash (or lack of) they get from it. Of the two things mentioned in the OP, I'd be more disappointed with lack of backwards compatibility then not being able to play used games. It hurts retailers like Gamestop and Hastings more than anything. Even shops like eBay will lose a ton of revenue eventually.

I don't really care. I prefer my money goes to the devs who make the games as opposed to GameStop.

Now if they go all digitall I'll have problems.

How so? PC gaming didn't die when they removed the used game market.

EDIT - Hey I thought we had an understanding - you don't fix your posts with edits (like changing dreams to details good sir) so I don't look silly with my replies.

"Posted by numerous publications," huh? Interestingly enough, you were only able to site one. Oh yeah, and that one citation has the source (the German PS Mag) admitting that Sony hasn't verified the info.

Admit it; you're just trying to get your foot back in the door after Holly took your trolling crown. Holly's the new king of the Xbots and M.'s old news.

Does that make your micro soft?

Googling it shows a bunch of rumors from March.

March. You do know how long ago March is, right?
