That would be great if all those things were on the PS4 Ninja. I would be surprised at the backwards compatibility for both PS2 and PS3. It would have to be a software solution as a hardware fix would be very expensive. Is there a source for that jpeg ?The only problem I worry about with next gen PS console is making sure developers can code games for it more easily than the PS3. I always hear the PS3 hardware is superior to the Xbox (except for RAM) but that it is more difficult to develop games for it.

I think if people were worried about online-only, I think this will make them happy:

With the video game industry rapidly transitioning from a focus on retail game sales to a marketplace dominated by downloads, it's only a matter of time until a major home console decides to do without physical media at all. It seems that Sony thinks that time is not nigh, however. A report from the Wall Street Journal suggests the company briefly considered but ultimately rejected a plan to do away with an optical disc drive on the next PlayStation.

Citing "people familiar with the matter," the Journal said Sony did away with the idea of a disc-less system because "Internet connectivity is too inconsistent around the world." We can't say that's a bad call—even with a decent low-end broadband connection in the United States, downloading a Blu-ray's worth of data (or more) just to play the latest release could easily take more than a day. That effectively does away with all the convenience provided by downloading a game in the first place.

The decision is even less surprising given what Sony's Kaz Hirai said back in 2010; that the idea of a download-only gaming future in ten years time was "taking it a little bit to the extreme." The case of Sony's download-only PSP Go portable dying a quick death on most retail shelves might have also influenced the company's thinking.

Microsoft cited similar bandwidth concerns in confirming that it's next system would also have a disc drive, according to the Journal report. Both Microsoft and Sony have said they don't plan to officially unveil new hardware at E3 next week, but that doesn't rule out some brief mention of general future plans for either company.

They were moving to fast with the idea of pure online but it is too early for it.

There are other devices that do very well with only wifi I get it. But games still need to be bought as discs in many places where internets sux. To make web access a requirement would be a disaster.

Mark me as skeptical of the list just because I'm always skeptical of "leaks", but I really hope it's true.

Hell, in NZ internet aint cheap and some games like god of war 3 have a ridiculous file size so download only would be very annoying.

I hope I can turn off the rinky dink speaker on the controller. I prefer to have either a big speaker set up or my wireless headphones.

nobody - I was going to specify that, but figured it was a given at this point in time.

The PlayStation channel uploaded the following videos recently. The first one was uploaded yesterday, with the 2nd one being uploaded today. I figure tomorrow, we'll see one for the PSP. A PS3 one on Monday. A PS Vita one on Tuesday. And finally, on Wednesday the 20th, one for the PS4/Orbis.

Nothing made it must-have for me, so I'll be waiting.

I mean, yeah, I enjoyed inFamous 1, but that's not enough for me to buy a new console.

GG left a bad taste in my mouth after the changes they made in KZ3, so not too interested in any sequels.

Hopefully they have a good exclusive lineup at E3.
