the only main difference (which is in Sony's favor btw) is the PS4 is using GDDR5 ram vs nextbox just using DDR3

I'm sure 99% of your post is FUD and hate for Sony, but if the above is not part of that 99% then I'll be seriously disappointed. I hate FaceBook and refuse to use it despite all the odd looks I get from people for not being on there and a console will not be the reason I sign up.

So here's the hoping you misquoted or took something out of context when you wrote that.

don't worry, it's pure FUD
i don't believe they even mentioned Facebook at the conference

You're not going to be forced to use FB or Twitter or anything else.

You'll be able to sign into facebook and share stuff but it isn't going to be mandatory.

Where in that photo does it say "Facebook" is required? All that pictures says is they support facebook and ustream on the playstation network.

Do you even own a PS3? The ability to post stuff to Facebook is already a feature. Any mention of it for PS4 is nothing new and has nothing to do with how you sign into PSN.

No they're not. If the rumored xbox 3 specs end up true, then the ps4 has a 50% advantage in gpu power. That's not minor in the least.

Actually the reason they didn't show it is because after adding 4 more gigs of ram, they need to redesign the whole motherboard and thus the whole console.

Such a late game redesign is very risky to start with since they now have very limited time to test and QnA the new design, and refit and test the production lines before production.

Basically they're setting it up for a potential 1 year failure ala RRoD.

I love competition to bring us great things, but is it bad that I want the PS4 to blow the next Xbox out of the water even, if only for the fact that it'd make my decision that much easier? I don't want to pay for multiplayer, I don't have time for another added expense for something I may or may not use that often. I just want it to work. Don't get me wrong, I think the 360 has the greatest controller ever, and I like the software layout too. I'm not a hater by any means, I'm just being realistic here in terms of my money, especially considering the recent discovery of all the benefits one would get out of Playstation Plus, if I decided to subscribe to such a thing. I say this also as someone who receives discounts on 360 games and various Microsoft products as it stands too.

Well to answer the first part of your question, as a consumer, not really, I think it's a good idea, healthy competition forces manufacturers to make sure the consumer, or end user if you prefer, gets the most bang for their buck, so long as they're not cutting corners on quality, for now it would seem as we're all in for a treat with these new consoles. :)

Yeah, I'm with you on that. I'm just being the worst kind of consumer by wanting a simpler choice, instead of many great choices. :p

Oh please. First understand that a GPUs "power" does not translate to graphics output, just don't even try... Even if the PS4's GPU manages to have 4 times as much "power" you can rest assure the new xbox will drive a better picture quality.

Anyway let's just wait and see!

PS. Didn't learn much from the press release but still looks promising. Can't wait for them to show the device and give us a run down on all the features! Will also be interesting to see if Sony markets this as a hardcore gaming or muli-entertainment device!
