The lights are on
Next-generation console rumors continue to surface. This time there's new details on the next PlayStation console.
Reliable sources told Kotaku the console's current working name is Orbis and is set for release in holiday 2013. The console won't support backward compatibility for PlayStation 3 games, either.
Following reported rumors about the next Xbox not supporting used titles, the next PlayStation could link games to your PSN account and implement some sort of "online pass" feature, making used games buyers to be restricted on accessing full game content unless they pay a fee.
Keep in mind these are just rumors. Nothing is confirmed. Sony said it does not comment on rumors or speculation.
Earlier this month, retailer GameStop said it was unlikely that next-generation consoles would lock out used games completely. “We think it’s unlikely that there would be that next-gen console because the model simply hasn’t been proven to work," said CEO Paul Raines.
not a bad name.
Durango and Orbis...these names are not making me excited for the next generation.
Interesting. I still don't believe in the next generation yet, honestly.
even if this is the case,we all know it will be dubbed PS4.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I need backwards compatibility!!! I hope this is wrong!!!!
I think Sony wants the PS4 to work with the 2160p HDTV. I wouldn't mind, but I'm not on the market for a new HDTV any time soon
its great news and all but, sony is going to have sever profit loss if its pridicting on 2013 its still too soon for a sony consle its just too soon sony not yet !, not just yet , i think there should be backwards compatibility that featuer is what made the playstation 2 so great
I hope they make these new consoles more affordable or else I'm sticking with my current gen consoles a while longer. That might not be a bad idea actually. (Hence the disaster with Xbox 360 releasing faulty consoles and Ps3 release causing riots) In fact, I didn't get my first xbox 360 until holiday 2006. After going through 3 of those, I bought a Ps3 in 2010. The slim, of course (after hearing about Ps3 fat models having problems). It took both Microsoft and Sony about 5 years to release a reliable slim model; so that seems like a good reason to wait awhile for the next consoles.
