79w ago - In a recent interview with CNBC (linked above), Sony CEO Jack Tretton has confirmed PS4 / PlayStation 4 video game pricing as ranging from $0.99 to $60 with demos available as well.

Below are the details, to quote: "On pricing, Tretton said that the PS4 is "designed with the game developer in mind and the consumer in mind," and will offer games with prices ranging from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 range with the ability for players to sample games before they buy.

"I think people are willing to pay if they see the value there," he said. "The heat for the true gamer is on the console."

He said that games on mobile devices are "additive experiences" and that gamers won't "migrate down the food chain" for their primary gaming experience."

To quote: Today during a roundtable discussion with the president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, news about the role of PlayStation 3’s two controllers – DualShock 3 and PlayStation Move – were revealed in terms of their functionality with PlayStation 4.

In short: DualShock 3 won’t work with PlayStation 4, but PlayStation Move will. “No, [PS4] doesn’t support DualShock 3,” noted Yoshida, “but it does support PS Move.”

You mean like releasing a new system as the old one has no hope of ever being re-secured? Yeah, I have no doubt the PS4 is their way, at least in part, of getting users to willingly upgrade their old compromised systems for a new secure system.

Does anyone else feel like Sony isn't really making new things but just re-vamping their old stuff in new ways?

With the PS4 basically containing PC hardware, I wonder how long until we see homemade clones? Maybe build-your-own Dev/Test units?

Is it not having old CD compatibility really that bad? You can pretty much buy some antique to rip'em for like 10 bucks, why would someone spend 300+ on a CONSOLE to rip cds?...
because you pay a lot of money on a crappy locked console where sony decides what will be unlocked and what will be locked out, i would like everything unlocked, come on get real, of course it can.

just wait till it gets hacked.
