To quote from ReijiAsakura's Tweet (via twitter.com/ReijiAsakura/status/304699622717267968):

"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.

I have to agree with PS3GAMER, PC will always be superior graphics wise. PS4 wasn't needed, It's very expensive ($530?) and only a bit better (graphic wise) then PS3 and of course, some gimmicks to justify a new console and allow Sony so say they're innovating. Sure, It has way more graphic potential, but how long did It take to use all of PS3 potential? 6~7 years?

By the time we get to see PS4 at It's best we'll already have PS5. Consoles should be cheap or else It just won't sell much. People who are willing to afford A LOT to have amazing graphics spend that money on powerful PCs.

i'm a console gamer FYI, but i can't afford to be a mad console fanboy like you are and one more thing that PC will be always better than consoles in the matter of graphics and frame rates, but gameplay and exclusives are best on consoles.

Since when has EB not ripped off customers? This week I was lucky enough to return a 2nd hand game for $39 where JB had the exact same game new for $39. I got it 2nd hand from JB for $29.

And with game pricing look at WiiU games. They really need to be dropped too. Aliens CM for PS3 was priced at $59 where the WiiU version was $99. You get more on the PS3 version so why is the WiiU version so much more?

I only buy from EB when they price match. They have even called them a few times as they never believe the prices I quote them but I always get the cheaper price.

And by the specs and BC and just about everything else I'm not impressed with the PS4 at all. No BC so NO SALE for me. I already need have a PS2 and PS3 connected when I want to play PS2 or PS3 games instead of having 1 console thats able to play both. I'm not going to have 3 consoles connected as where will the Xbox720 go? I'm guessing the Xbox720 will be BC with all 3 consoles, the way it should be.

NOPE, I think PS4 is not using HDD anymore, back to basic like PS1 and PS2.

because I read inside specification PS4, it wrote HARD DISK DRIVE: BUILT IN... here is the pdf PS4 specification
