Well that's not very necessary.

Haha if that is true, Sony will have successfully stolen Kinect and Wii controls. I guess the real question is, why?

Kinect is just a more advanced PSEye. Sony also was working on wii/move like controllers with the PSEye before the Wii was released.

I have zero interest in the wii/kinect/eye stuff. I'll be sticking with my ps3 for a while.

Yup. The PS3 always had motion controls, but rarely used them.

It's nice to have for the system to get casual user sales. Kinda like the BluRay player helped the PS3 early on (as high a price tag as the system carried, it was still the cheapest and best BR player).

For regular gamers like ourselves, we have nothing to worry about because Sony has always been consistent with the way they lean towards the hardcore crowd.

I don't feel like they've even touched the potential of the PS3 yet, so I really don't understand rushing the PS4 out already...

Yeah I like that it means more money for the video game industry and couldn't care less if it exists as long as it doesn't deter from the hardcore industry.

PS3 is really coming into its own right now and it's a shame this didn't happen earlier in its life cycle.

We definitely don't need a new one so soon. I think sony is just trying to revenge microsoft since the 360 came out before ps3 and a lot of people waited in line and bought that.

Given the fact that Microsoft already started getting a team together for the next console it doesn't surprise me Sony is preparing too. They need to launch at a similar time and it can't help to prepare.

Sony learned their lesson with the PS3. I think they're anxious to get to the next gen to prove that they are superior. Devs just figured out how to program for the system efficiently, but it's probably too little too late.

Yeah they get owned 2:1 on multi-platform titles which is not good at all given the fact that so many 3rd party games are doing so well lately. I still don't buy a PS4-2012 release. Seems way to early to me. Nintendo I get because the Wii is absolute trash now, but Microsoft and Sony really don't need to rush things.

Personally, I don't think any of that makes a whole ton of sense. The PS3 JUST started hitting it's stride this year. Going into making another console at this point just doesn't seem like a good idea. They should obviously be piecing together the tech and all that good stuff, but an aggressive release of substantially better hardware(I'm assuming and hoping that's the case) is just going to lead to another 599 US DOLLARS! thing. Major potential to alienate consumers early on and put them in a position where they have to win them back yet again.

2012 is just too soon. 2013 would be the better spot with a reveal at next years e3 IMO.

It's relevant enough, especially for a forum. You said they stole the ideas, I was just providing the info to enlighten you that they weren't.

If Sony treats the PS4 release anything like the PS3 release, the PS3 will still get some love. God of War 2 didn't come out on the PS2 until after the PS3 was released. They still supported the PS2 very well. I can't imagine them not doing the same for the PS3. We could see some of the best PS3 games after the PS4 is already out.

I'd still argue against that but it's really not worth it. The kinect is similar to the eye toy, but substantially different at the same time.

The point is Sony didn't steal it. They had similar technology before Microsoft. Kinect is more advanced as I said, but just watch videos of people playing both. They essentially work the same.
