"ソニー・コンピュータ・エンターテンイメントのアンドリュー・ハウス氏、インタビュー終わり。まずプレイステーション4ではSACD、CDはサポー トしません。

Andrew House said PS4 does not support CD and SACD in interview.

So no CD music ripping."

Those seeking to rip disc audio tracks will have to use Sony's Music Unlimited service.

Is there anything the PS4 will support?
Everything anti piracy and commercials while playing games.

You know the prices aren't announced right?
Correct, they aren't officially announced yet. For what it's worth though, my local GameStop is taking pre-pre-orders (they put you on a list, then call when the real pre-orders begin and you come in with a $50 deposit which goes towards the cost of the PS4) and I was told there will be two models, one for $429 and one for $529 so perhaps this is where the rumors are coming from.

Graphics look Great, Sound is Awesome. So what if you can't use it to steal music or play your PS1 game off old style discs... Thieves suck and I'm sure the PS1 games will be there one way or another. Old discs can't hold the amount of memory you need for this type of media anyway. Atleast they aren't sticking us with cartridges. Looks like a great platform. I do hope it won't be as lame as the Iphone5 as far as nothing new... It is lame that it will be very spendy in the beginning.

My biggest worry is The Programs for these Consoles take up soooooo much memory that download limits with ISPs as well as charges can choke users in many areas I.E. if you go over 10gigs download they rape your wallet in penalties. Overall I think Graphics are a big draw and if it makes my games look that much better and faster then thats what I want...

Wicked Graphics, Speed of processor and no VISTA BS running a ton of useless crap I don't need. I want to be drawn into the games as far as I can. I have a list of a million things I would like it to do but To the point, Ease of Use, and Amazing fast paced Graphics as well as interaction with others.

EverQuest raids with 100 people, you could barely make heads or tails of what was going on. Game machines like this are actually really cheap if you think of it compared to building a wicked PC for gaming. I do wish they would make it very durable so you can drag it everywhere without worry.

As far as game prices go, Craigslist is a great place to trade game discs or you can wait a few months and every game prices drops pretty fast.

Anyway, you all know better than I so post some useful info as it comes so I don't run out and waste my money if I am wrong.

Eh. Not supporting PS3 games really disappointed me, but not supporting CDs isn't surprising. I absolutely hate disks, they're seriously being phased out. I've thrown away about all my burned DVDs and CDs as I just use flash drives and portable hard drives now; muchhhhh more convenient.

You know the prices aren't announced right? I extremely doubt $530 is true based on the prices of the components inside.
