did you play max payne 3 lol that game too fugkin hard lol i failed the helicopter stage so many times...lol

Nah, I think it was the first one ever because it was the original XBox, I think right after they came out. I was just amazed with the Matrix effect of putting it in slow motion while you were shooting... But, it wore off pretty quick.

The thing I don't like is it won't be backwards compatible with PS3 games. I hate that crap. Have to wait and see, maybe in a few years if the price comes down.

I just saw one of the PS4 games on pre-sale I guess on amazon and it is listed at $100. WOW. That may be where they are gonna make up the difference in money from the console price.

That's just a holder price tag, they did the same thing with quite a few games for the Wii U last year.


The Backwards Compatibility thing doesn't bother me. I never used it on the original PS3 models when they came out with it included.

Also Knack looked crazy with all the pieces of knack being actually displayed, especially when he explodes.

I still play PS2 and PS1 games on my PS3. Guess I just won't be getting rid of my PS3 if I get a PS4.

It's on the spec sheet, unified memory for video, and processing so the console can push however much it needs to whatever side and not be as limited as previous consoles. That's what's making the PS4 have the ability to actually play a game while you're downloading it, or suspend a game and power on the console and be brought right back to where you left off....Xbox "720" is rumored to also have 8GB of memory, but it's GDDR3 I believe.....

It's been confirmed by Sony, I think it was mentioned during the conference. Here it is for those that haven't seen it.

Sony: DualShock 4 light bar can change your mood when gaming in the dark


Everyone is focused so much on the DualShock 4′s light bar being used simply as a built-in Move controller working in tandem with the new camera peripheral for PS4. Scott Rohde, Senior VP Sony World Wide Studios, jumped onto the PlayStation Blog this past week and talked about a new way that games might use the light bar and a dark room to influence the player’s mood while gaming.

Playing games in the dark versus a well lit room depends heavily on the game being played. With Move and Kinect gaming, well lit areas are ideal for the cameras. What playing in the dark does for other games is allow it to immerse the player into the game by blacking out the real world around the tv. Who would have thought that the light bar on the new DualShock 4 could be used to color that dark space in front of the player to influence things like their mood while gaming. Rohde paints this picture pretty well:


A lot of gamers, myself included, like to play in some dimly lit rooms. And when you’re playing a game and the whole area around you changes color slightly based on what that light bar is doing, it’s not something you’re staring at and your expecting, but it changes your mood and it changes the way you feel when, whatever it is, when you fire a button, when you step into an area where you are in a cold blue area – think about Journey. You’re in a cold blue area, and then you move into more of an orangey earth tone – a warm area. And that controller is coming with you.
When the whole room around you is sort of suddenly changing from the blues and greens into the oranges and yellows, you might not really even know what’s happening, but your whole sense of immersion is definitely greater. It’s a really good thing. I get really excited about that color bar.


I help but imagine a character like Nathan Drake traversing an underwater level while the controller is illuminating the space in front of me with a fluctuating blue ambient light effect. Then coming out of the water and engaging in all sorts of explosions and gun play while the light bar flashes and pops all sorts of reds and oranges, effectively surrounding me in the warm light of the in-game explosions.

In addition to this light show experience, the new speaker in the DualShock 4 will bring near field audio to the player (a la Wii Remote). Those gunshots from Drake’s own pistol popping off, the shells hitting the floor around the feet of your Killzone character, or the zombie bite from behind will all be something new to PlayStation gamers and developers will quite literally have their hands full.
