    I thought I would start a thread for posting news and information about the PS4 as it becomes available.

    One of the first pieces of good news I came across is that Sony is not directly going to limit
    the use of "second hand" or "used' games on the PS4.

    Sony Worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida said the following in an interview.

    "It's a publisher decision. We are not talking about it sorry."

    Meaning the individual game publisher will make the choice to limit their game the PS4 hardware will not.

    The second interesting thing I found was a list of North American game publishers that have
    signed on with Sony developing games for the end of this year.

    Take note that Take Two Interactive who wholly owns Rockstar Games is on the list!
    Very interesting.

    I like the backlight on the controller and thats about it.

    i was really impressed with the graphics. especially with fallout. i was chatting with persht during the announcement and the first thing we said was "OMG graphics"

    and then i'm really excited for the streaming option. should be interesting to see a more detailed look at that

    Cloud streaming is reportedly going to allow the PS4 to access PS1,PS2 and Ps3 games.
    The system will use Gaikai's cloud tech for the streaming feature, and eventually they're looking into putting older PlayStation games on any device via streaming.

    Sony bought the cloud gaming service Gaikai last year.
    Last week someone from Gaikai registered the domains
    playstation-cloud.com and playstation-org among others.
    I am not as excited about streaming old games to my PS4 as I want new there, but I am excited about streaming PS3 games to my cell phone or PC!

    Sony's Chief Operating Officer Phil Molyneux confirmed this week that the PS4 will indeed support 4k movies.
    The term 4k refers to the movie format's horizontal resolution which is on the
    order of 4,000 pixels.
    So say hello to 100 GB movie downloads.
    Sure is a good thing my cable internet speed is going to 200 Mbps this summer!

    I wonder how big the hdds are going to be or if they're going to be purely reliant on the cloud *which would mean no DL time for you?*

    Yes, streaming is the only rational way to watch those big movies.

    Wow! Finally!
    The PS4 controller has a "share" button that will allow you to upload clips from your online game and share them with your friends.
    This is something that has been needed for a long time.
