Too much to just copy and paste here but a very good read, never before has a console been revealed in so much detail.

Can't wait for next gen.

That was a really great read, When he said "We did not want to create some kind of puzzle that the development community would have to solve in order to create their games". Does that mean we could see alot more indie games on the PS4?

They are going to allow people to self publish games on PSN, if Microsoft don't do the same you can bet on PS4 being the place for the best indie games.

considering that the PS4 hardware is so closely related to consumer pc parts in a slight context -> could we possibly see more PS4 title ports and better quality ports? Just asking this from a pc gaming perspective, because there are so many good games that I would like to play on the pc if that trend possibly is going to pick up :)

Good read. I do like the direction that Sony is taking with the PS4. It does seem to have better potential than the PS3. Well, by "better" I mean "more attainable", which is good news for everyone.

I'm really looking forward to the indie scene in the next generation, and the PS4 seems to in a great position for it.

Unified memory is so freaking cool; this will be the first time a console is actually easier to program for than a PC.

Indie ports, yes. First party? No.

Never say never, it says in the article that developers can port games to the PC in weeks rather than months, this generation because the architecture is the same as a PC we might see more console games making the jump.

Outside of maybe some SOE games, you're really not likely to see Naughty Dog or Media Molecule or Guerrilla or SCEA Santa Monica games on Steam.

Now, second-party games, like Journey or even games by Quantic Dream -- sure I could see that.

Third option is for yet another ****ing PC middleware (Steam/Origin/GFWL) that Sony can control and implement cross-platform gameplay.

As soniq said, I could never see Sony allow their first parties to release their games on the PC platform as you're then losing the main reason that people are going to be buying your hardware. Sure you may sell a bit more software but at the expense of selling more hardware and expanding your install base, it just would never happen anytime soon (at least as long as Sony is producing console hardware).

Yeah. The likelihood of Sony releasing its first party games on PC is about as likely as Nintendo releasing theirs. As long as you're in the console business it would never happen.

Yeah I never meant first party developers but because of the architecture I wouldn't be surprised if third party devs port games to PC with minimal effort.

I'd imagine Sony would make agreements with studios about exclusives. They'd probably make the game exclusive on the PS4 for a certain amount of time before allowing any porting. Kind of like some XBLA games are exclusive to XBLA before devs can port to PC.

I don't bother buying XBLA exclusives because they always end up on steam. I am kicking myself I bought Trials Evolution on XBLA. I bought Mark of the Ninja and I am waiting for Fez in May on Steam.
