Rumor: Sony Preparing New PS4 SKU with 1TB of Storage This Fall

300°
6w ago - With PS4 releases continuing to eat up PlayStation 4 hard drive space, today according to reports Sony is preparing a new PS4 SKU featuring 1TB of storage slated to arrive this Fall.

Below are the details, to quote: "A leaked PlayStation 4 model number suggests that Sony is gearing up to release a new PlayStation 4 model with 1 TB of diskspace this Fall.

The new reveal comes from a retailer source that PS4Daily spoke to, the same source who tipped us off on the upcoming Max Payne 3 PS4 remake, and the same source who first leaked the existence of the original Killzone Shadow Fall bundle back in 2013.

The retailer says that the only information they’ve received is the model number - called CUH-1001X - the “PLAYSTATION 4″ name, and a Q4 2014 release date. Further inquiries revealed that the big difference is the harddrive, which will double in capacity and likely be part of a new bundle.

The current US model number is CUH-1001A, the new model is called CUH-1001X, with the “X” signifying a change in the harddrive capacity. The last symbol in the model number stands for HDD capacity, which is currently “A”,...
 

Rumor: PS4 Getting Friend Notifications in Firmware Update 1.80, Details

250°
20w ago - Not long after the release of PS4 Firmware Update v1.70 comes rumors of what is likely to be included in PlayStation 4 System Software Update v1.80 with details below!

To quote: "Sony released the 1.7 firmware update for the PS4 today, and it was a quite big one, featuring a lot of generally requested features, but there are a few that still didn't appear: one of them is a notification when friends connect to the PSN.

According to Twitter user bjexbob (twitter.com/bjexan) friend notifications are finally going to appear with firmware update 1.8. The message was relayed by industry insider Tidux (twitter.com/Tidux), who has a very solid track record of knowing what's happening at Sony. I personally reached out to Tidux inquiring about Bjexbob's identity, and he confirmed that he indeed works in a position that gives him plenty insight on the issue (we won't disclose said position to respect his privacy).

Interestingly enough Tidux also added that Friend notifications have been working internally since update 1.6, but hasn't been implemented yet for general users.

Finally, he mentioned that some of the features that were to be implemented in the firmware "slipped...
 

Rumor: PS1 / PS2 Games Heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via Emulation

400°
33w ago - Today Eurogamer (linked above) reports on rumors of PS1 / PS2 games heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via emulation with details below.

To quote: Backwards compatibility is coming to PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Now is only part of the story. A well-placed source working with Sony's streaming service reveals that only PlayStation 3 titles are currently scheduled to use the "gameplay over IP" cloud service. PS1 and PS2 titles are set to follow the more conventional route of running locally under emulation on Sony's latest console - but with the possibility of HD visual enhancements.

While Sony effectively phased out hardware emulation of previous platforms during the early stages of the PS3 era, it has worked consistently on opening up the PlayStation back catalogue to publishers via software emulation and PSN downloads.

Internally, PlayStation 3's firmware contains emulators for PS1, PS2 and even the handheld PSP, while Vita is capable of running PS1 and Vita titles virtually flawlessly using the same technology. In short, there's a proven codebase that can only get better for the vastly more powerful PS4.

Our information suggests that the same internal emulator strategy is planned for PlayStation 4, and we understand that Sony is actively pursuing the ability for older titles to...
 

Rumor: PS Vita Slim Set for Release in Europe and North America?

50°
34w ago - IGN reports that Sony has invited press to an exclusive breakfast briefing with PlayStation next Thursday, January 30th, where it is rumored that they will unveil a PS Vita Slim (or perhaps a PS Vita TV international release) for Europe and North American regions.

The invitation (below) reads, to quote: "You are invited to an exclusive breakfast briefing with PlayStation.

Following the biggest launch in PlayStation history, join us for an introduction to the slimmest.

When: Thursday 30th January 2014 | 09:00-11:00"

The PS Vita Slim is already available in Japan, and is 20 percent thinner than the existing model, as well as being 15 percent lighter.

It does away with the OLED screen for a 5-inch LCD display, which helps the battery to supposedly last up to an hour longer. The Japanese one is available in six different colors too, though we've yet to see if that's replicated in the west.

Of course the announcement could be about something else entirely, but the Vita Slim seems to be the sensible option, especially given the new appeal the handheld has thanks to the PS4's remote play functionality.

Having only just launched the PS4, it's exceedingly unlikely that Sony would announced a slim version of the console right now as they traditionally...
