July 8, 2010 // 10:40 pm - Recently SCE boss Shuhei Yoshida revealed that PS3 Devs will help build Sony's PlayStation 4 console, and today in an interview with Develop-Online.net he expanded stating that the PS4 is likely to arrive after the next-generation XBox and Nintendo consoles.

From the interview, to quote: "Looking from the outside, it was Microsoft that released the first of this generation of consoles. Naturally, in my opinion, Microsoft will make the first move.

Or, because Nintendo's approach was not to upgrade much on its basic hardware - Wii doesn't even support HD resolution - so they might be the first to move.

Probably the watch should be on these companies, in my opinion. Because PS3 was later than Xbox, and is more powerful, so it has a longer lifespan."

In the meantime a Sony patent has revealed that they will use external processors to increase the power of the PS3 so there will be no need for a PS4. I think it's a good thing because I won't need to buy a new console, only a processor and that will be cheaper. But Sony will definitely release a PS4 because of the money they'd earn. But there is still plenty of time to that event. So I'm waiting

I think as much as the involment of devs is a good idea, I really can see some type of info or tech getting leak to others :S

Ah well we shall see.

The developers being involed will make it much easier and especially quicker to create and release games won't it?

From what I see going on, the PS4 life will be much different than that of the PS3. Since the creation will greatly influenced by the Devs, the system will be more prepared than the PS3 was. It is a great system, and the whole RROD issue was a mess, but being released a year prior to the PS3, and being a much easier platform to program for, the 360 has had more success IMO.

However, including the Devs into the next gen console will allow them to have an understanding of the procedure involved in creating content, which will then allow them to strategize for the release of said content.

This could greatly influence the future consecutive console war that will erupt, and might even favor a much more understood and developed, powerful platform if the PS3 is any indicator.

I remember reading somewhere something about Sony developing with Toshiba a 1TB SSD. maybe it's a far fetched guess. but, why not. maybe Sony will use it for it's next gen.

Although I love the round shape of storage media. but the reading speed of SSD and ONE TERA BYTE!!!.

oh i just found this: http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/02/11/toshiba.keio.u.show.tiny.1tb.ssd.prototype/

Thanks Croft! I do also have a fascination with physical copies of stuff, love collecting CD's, Games, DVD's, Blu Reay's etc.
I just love having the official cover booklet and everything that comes with it, it's stupid releasing a game case with a voucher only :S

While some people may like their games being a digital download, I HIGHLY PREFER my game being a disc ANY DAY. There are a couple of games that I wish were disc-based games that were sold in store in a game case only holding a voucher code inside for downloading (Marvel vs Capcom 2). I like the idea of my game purchase being a physical disc when I walk out the store with no strings attached. I agree with danzorezno about Sony supporting both digital download & disc on PS4.

Anyways. the PS3 still has a huge lifespan and is much more future-proof than any other console!


i remeber hearing rumors the ps3 would act as a router. possibly what the other ethernets were for.

I would expect nintendo to release something first to address the lack of HD support. I'm just wondering if the next playstation will even have disc support. PSN seems to be the way of the future and far cheaper.

Yeah, that's why the "original" (first hardware) had 2 HDMI outputs. Maybe the ethernet ports were more for OtherOS clustering. Cool, but who has two HD TV's or any HDMI screen hanging around in their house? Lol, playing with two screens alone would look extremely geeky. I still think it's useless for end users, but they could've made some of those models for electronic shops, like a demonstration mode.

Maybe the RSX wasn't capable enough of outputting 2 1080p signals.
