Sony is working on the PlayStation 4, which it calls "Orbis," and plans to release the device in time for the holiday season in 2013, according to a recent report. The console can reportedly play 3D games at 1080p resolution, as compared to the PS3's 720p. It apparently won't be backward-compatible with games for the PS3 and will reportedly seek to bar owners from playing used games. Some developers say they've already received development kits for the Orbis.
I agree. Used games are a big part of a gamers library. You can tell a lot about a game the your local game stop has x amount of copies 3 weeks after release. Next question is what will the price point be and who will be the first to release?
Not going to fly. First, it kills the people that can afford the system, but not to "buy" the latest game. It also kills rentals. This is a stupid move on their part, and makes absolutely no damn sense. But, then, its one of the few companies that actually believes DRM isn't hurting business, so, hardly a surprise...
