Games Late last night, Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 - sort of. It's got a custom 8-core AMD x86-64 processor, 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, and a custom Radeon-based graphics chip. It's also got additional chips to offload specific tasks like video (de)compression (livestreaming is built-in!), and there's a large focus on streaming games, but most of it is "an ultimate goal" instead of a definitive feature. It won't play PS3 discs (but will eventually stream many PS3 games), and, while there's some weaselwording involved, second hand games are safe. The biggest surprise? The console itself wasn't shown because it's not done yet. No joke. No price, no release date (other than somewhere before the holidays).

This just looks like more of the same. I didn't want to play Killzone on the PS3. I don't want to play it on the PS4 either. But I bet they'll have at least half a dozen military shooters out at launch, which should make the 'core' gamers happy. At least if the graphics are better, they'll forget about the fact that they're paying $60+ for the same fucking game they played last month.
