Forums - Sony Discussion - PSM3 Magazine post information on the PS4 (according to their sources)

RUMOR: PSM3 magazine has posted a list of information for Sony's next console system, after speaking with various developers and sources. First the console will not be called PlayStation 4, due to number 4 in Japan is pronounced "Shi", which means death....

  • The next console will not be called PlayStation 4, the number 4 in Japan is pronounced "shi", meaning death. Many buildings in Japan have no 4th floor and room number 4 due to the same reason
  • The codename for the console is Orbis, which could perhaps be part of the final name
  • PS4 titles will look like high-end PC demos you found in Watchdogs, Star Wars 1313 or Square Enix's Luminous tech demo
  • PS4 demos will be shown by Sony at E3 2013
  • PS4 games will not run in 4K or Ultra HD resolution, it will probably be used only for videos
  • The default resolution will be 1080p at 60fps
  • PS4 will not support used games, games need to be registered to PSN account
  • There will be a protection scheme in the system, in the form of online pass or something similar
  • PS4 will have around 4GB to 8GB memory - if the next Xbox system has 8GB memory, Sony would be put under pressure to have 8GB
  • PS4 will have 16GB flash memory
  • PS4 will not be backward compatible with PS3 games
  • PlayStation Plus will be an important pillar of the PS4
  • PS4 will be shipped with PS Move controller and camera
  • Classic games will be available via Cloud gaming, powered by Gaikai
  • PS4 will run on quad-core AMD processor code name Liverpool, produced in a 28nm process
  • The price will be around €400 - 500

Ah ok, it somehow escaped my view.

This thread is more informative as i posted all the points though. The other thread starter only quoted what was convienient for him,



I really hope they don't call it Playstation Orbis. That would be a huge mistake.
They need to call it PS4. I just can't see myself telling someone "OMG did you get your Playstation Orbis!?". Sounds silly doesn't it?



If that is true they should call it Playstation 4, cause it will be the death of the Playstation-brand.

I was avoiding giving my opinion, but the block on used games seems very alarming.

Most unbelievable part for me is not supporting used games. That most definatly would be the death of PS. I know I wouldn't get it and I almost always buy new but then sell my games to friends who have yet played it.
