1 person only?

It's like a helmet... so 1 person per helmet... if you need buy more.

PS. There is no way the new PlayStation is to named anything else than PS4.

well, in Japan they wont have that name, unless they want a console to be named "PlayStation Death".

There is  a Resident Evil 4 in Japan, and it sold well so.....there's also a Yakuza 4..etc.
Whatever this supersition was, Japan seems to have gotten over it.

You have a really good point there.  I forgot games with a 4 existed in Japan XD

They should make this upcoming console their final console.. so they should pack in some good technology..

but launch at $399


Why on earth would this be anybody's final console?? That won't happen for some time. We'll need more power again 8 years from now when we all have 4k tv's in the home and don't have internet connections that can stream uncompressed 4k streaming games.



The headset is interesting but just from that description I don't see it being the next Kinect or Wii. Heck, it's optional.
Also, Sony still things 3D is going to move systems?

The game in the cloud is a great proposition but then, couldn't I play any Omni game on a PS3? Why buy Omni at all then? The cloud would handle the processing so the graphics would look the same even on Vita (or at least as good as Vita's screen can show).

At any rate, if this is true then Sony does have a little more up there sleeve than just a straight up PS4 but I'm still not seeing a winning strategy here. It's better though and they shouldn't be losing a ton of money on every unit sold again (I hope).

Well those are simple games. And Resident Evil games could be very well be applied to "death". It's just a bad omen, kinda like the number 13 in the west.

Not everyone has a fast enough connection to handle streaming.

Yeah I don't mind at all if Sony is less powerfull than nextbox but to be 2 or 3 times behind would kind of suck. They need to be atleast within 50% or so in terms of power and these machines need to quadrouple the wiiu. I'm rooting for Sony on this one. If these rumors are true they have the coolest "gimmick" with the omni glasses..  much  more interesting then kinect and slighly more interesting than wiiu tablet.

You do realise that if the Nextbox was 2 times as powerful - PSOmni Would be within %50?

I don't think it'd be a dealbreaker in any case. Maybe to some cores, but not to the majority of the market.



Omni? In line with the rumors about ads in PS4.

The PS names in Japan use english numbers however... but still I think they are going to skip "4" for this reason all the same. 


So...  PS5 confirmed? 2020!  They need to just call it playstation 4, and move on.  Either way you look at it, it's still the fourth home console.  I'd much rather they call it PS4, and not confuse everyone..



Hope that PS3 b/c dongle is true. It would mean I could trade in my Super Slim for an Omni.
