What the hell...

Not that I would use the PS for that, but still, the people that will want to, that blows.

Mock all you'd like but I use my PS3 for wayyyy more than just games. I'd prefer purchasing one device to handle all my needs. Why take out simple CD function and music playback features? Does it cost that much extra?

Will PS3 support Bluetooth phone connection so that I can use my non-Sony Unlimited Music (which I test drove and it sucked vs Spotify and MOG) to listen to my music?

My PS3 is used by both me and my wife.

We watch Netflix, Hulu, MLB and Blu-Rays

We listen to Pandora and several bookmarked internet radio stations.

We also have it hooked up to our media server for music/movies/tv/photos etc.

And yes, games are played too. But as you can see, the PS3 does a great job being a well-rounded machine.

Why cripple the PS4? I'm probably not going to buy one now, I have no reason to

I had it working at some point, then it broke (I didn't change anything) - and I would try fixing it periodically, but would usually end up frustrated and play music some other way.

at this point, I don't give two sh*ts that it's not working properly.

I broke my old PS3 trying to watch Breaking Bad with either TVersity or the other PS3 streaming app. Insert whatever Breaking and Bad puns you'd like

Thx for the tip about Pandora, Ken. No idea that it would work via the browser. Plus Tune In Radio started working on it so sports talk radio for me.

Yep, just make a browser bookmark and you're good to go!

Not playing CD's or MP3's is just plain dumb.

Why omit something so simple, yet so many people can and do use?

PlayStation 4 preorders 'much higher' than its predecessor

October 31, 2013 | By Kris Ligman

In an investor call this morning, Sony Computer Entertainment said that it expected to ship 5 million PlayStation 4s by the end of March 2014, a figure it said it drew from the record number of preorders being placed worldwide.

"Compared to past platforms, the preorders that we have received for this new platform [the PlayStation 4] is much, much higher," said Sony chief financial officer Masaru Kato, as transcribed on Seeking Alpha (free subscription required).

As recently as August, SCE said that global preorders for the PS4 had exceeded 1 million. Global figures for PlayStation 3 are not ready to hand, although it is quite true that the overall market for consoles continues to be on an upward trend.

Kato said that in addition to the high number of preorders, the platform's launch lineup prompted a vote of confidence.

"Sometimes, when we launch a new platform, the software catalog is not sufficient," said Kato. "This year, on a comparative basis, I think we have a much more stronger (sic) lineup of software coming."

Sony's PlayStation 4 is scheduled to launch November 15th in North America and November 29th in Europe and Australia.

While not something I do often, I will listen to an old CD via the PS every now and then. Definitely lame.

Cool vids showing PS3 vs. PS4. Very noticeable difference.

I found the differences marginal.

However I think there will be larger differences a year from now, and when applied to games that are platform exclusive, that's when the PS4 will shine.

I use it heavily as a media server. Though lately i have been getting "Corrupt Data" while trying to watch movies stored on my computer

You should be able to use the same email but I doubt you'll be able to have friends on different platforms.

I guess that's the difference...none of the launch games look that appealing to me at all since I do not play any FPS on the consoles.

And as for platformers, I have never really played Assassin's Creed. So, don't know much about it.



I'll be way more hyped if Gran Turismo was coming...
