- Just bought a PlayStation 3 console when I read the rumors of a PlayStation 4
coming out soon and all the mind blowing possibilities of the theoretically new console.
I could barely afford the PS3 much less worry about what its going to cost for a PS4. But, based on what Paul Holman
(Sony Vice President of Technology) told TechEBlog
in 2006, the PS4 will not be out until at least 2010.
Then there's the rumor that the future PS4 will use the same existing cell processor that the current PS3 uses, according to a Japanese tech news site PC Watch
. I'm not sure about that because if this rumor does prove to be true, I'd be sorely disappointed.
For the most part, why invest in all these upgrades for the PS3 coming out soon only to purchase a PS4 which as we experienced with the PS3, having limited to no backwards playability again?
They just came out with a PS3 Bluetooth headset for the console, not to mention a possible controller that will function like the controllers of a Wii.
Sony is still upgrading the PS3, and making it more backwards compatible for those of us still clinging to our PS2 to play our favorites.
