I like how sony has been open about they're fanbases and what they want to achieve with the Playstation family. Thse qutes from Mark Cerny spring to mind.

On Knack

"One audience was core gamers," said Cerny. "I wanted to tap into the nostalgia for game experiences of the past, that feeling you had when you played Crash Bandicoot or Sonic the Hedgehog for the first time. Crash was actually a brutally difficult game despite its very simple two-button control scheme. That meant on a hard difficulty setting our game really needed to challenge the core gamer.

"The other audience was light or beginner gamers. I chose this because I have some very specific and personal beliefs about consoles and their position within the world of gaming. Console games can be pretty complex."

This is, according to Cerny, the "origin of Knack." As a result of these tests, he believes that when played on easy difficulty, "it can be someone's first console game."

On getting back to the PSone feel

During his keynote presentation at the Develop Conference in Brighton this morning, PS4 chief architect Mark Cerny predicted a "renaissance of gaming", fuelled by indie titles, that will echo the early years of PlayStation.

"With PSone there was no way to make an indie title," he said. "The hardware didn't support digital downloads and all games were distributed on CD-ROMS. There was no way for creators to directly reach their audience.

...

"With the release of PlayStation 4, we understand we have an opportunity to fundamentally alter the landscape of gaming," Cerny continued.

"On PS4, I believe the indie paradigm will have the hardware as enabler, not as the central player, which is to say that Octodad isn't about the triangle count, it's about keeping your cephalopod nature a secret from your human family."

"On the business side, we've had a bit of an epiphany," Cerny said. "Since Adam Boyes joined SCE, pretty much the whole process has been overturned. He wanted us to look at the day in the life of an indie developer, and challenged us to explain whether our processes were helping or hindering the creation of the diverse titles we were looking for.

"We ended up radically simplifying concept approval. We fully support self-publishing across all platforms, so it's now possible for developers to maintain complete creative and financial control. We now pretty much support any business model, whether it be buy-to-play, free-to-play, episodic or micro-transactions. And we're doing what we can to support indie development financially as well, whether that be through loaner dev kits or our incubation program or direct support from the Pub Fund.

"We also understand that accessibility is paramount. So we've gone from putting our process out front to putting people out front, which is to say your indie journey on PS4 as a developer begins by tweeting Shahid Ahmad, not by filling out a form.'

Also Worldwide studios have 30 games in development with 20 in the first year 12 of which are new IP. I guess we should start a list to feel in the blanks.

I realized something today. The PS4 is most likely going to have a good web browser that can play most videos (unlike Wii U's). So the PS4 will probably be a good way to watch shows from websites where your stream the video on your TV instead of your monitor. If this happens as I think it will the PS4 might be fantastic for watching anime. :)

I'm gonna try again.

It really depends on how they use flash in their browser. I almost guarantee that a youtube app or whatever will be released on PS4 just like it is on PS3 and Vita (with the vita one working amazingly well.)

If it's another youtube app for PS4, it better be legit, because the current one is frankly, garbage.

there should be a link at the bottom of the page under PS4News

Please show me where it says that we are only allowed to discuss Nintendo stuff here.

i'm not i just thought that there might be a bigger PS4 community over there than there is here as it is a PlayStation specific site

Following the August 20th Gamescom reveal, Sony will also be at TGS on September 19th with a keynote entitled the world PS4 creates. I'm guessing thats when e see alot of the Japanese related games as well as the Launch date in Japan.

It depends. The Wii U technically has a pretty future proof browser. HTML5 will be the core plug-in for most plug-ins after a while, because it will be standard.

HTML5 is an advancement that no one has really taken advantage of. It's forward compatible and backwards compatible, but it hasn't been programmed or applied to much of anything. If PS4 plans on being future proof with HTML5, you can expect older internet applications(versions of Javascript) to be supported by Wii U AND PS4 around the same time.

What do you means no one has taken advantage of HTML5? Its the only thing you here about at web based websites and tech summits.

Rumor that Sony will have a PS4/Vita Bundle for $500.
http://www.videogamer.com/news/ps4_and_ps_vita_bundle_coming_...

Sony may introduce a hardware bundle containing a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita when the next-gen console goes on sale later this year, according to a new report.

Inside Gaming Daily claims to have been told by a "well-placed anonymous source" that a bundle containing the two consoles will release at "the end of the year" for "around $500" (~ £325).

I'd be down for this as I planned to get both anyway.

If the bundle is true, it could be a very good value propistion compared to the Xbox One since you could get two consoles instead of "One" for the same price, plus you would get remote play. I could see it really boosting Vita sales.

I'm gonna try again.

@Sony_70
I mean plug-ins. No one really cares what formats a browser runs at long as it works, so that's why people are complaining. HTML5 can do things other formats can't, and it just so happens it's not compatible sometimes. That's why I don't get why people gave Wii U crap. It's technically one of the top browsers anywhere, but HTML5 by itself won't run stuff until there's more programming on the internet that supports it as native.

HTML5 is BC and FC. So PS4 will be in the same boat unless Sony plans to pay more for plug-ins that may go obsolete in an HTML5 future, just for customers to be satisfied for an extra year before more features are widespread.

Did anyone watch the Gamescom conference?

Rime looks amazing, almost like a spiritual successor to Ico! Every game to feature remote play via Vita confirmed too. Now if only those rumours of the Vita XL are true..

Not sure how to embed video...

I did! Game junkie, here, lol. Rime was one of the new games that were announced, that I really loved. The shot of him running in the fields, in the golden fields of wheat. Breathtaking! Oddly enough, at the other end of the spectrum, War Thunder, the online WW2 MMO really has me pumped. Love that era of history. Overall, PS4 looks amazing!

Deadlight blows on PC though, very glitchy

Glad we have a release date but I was very disappointed in Sony's show. I love indie games as much as the next guy but for God knows what reason Sony seems to think that's all it needs, who cares about AAA games like Dead Rising 3 or Quantum Break? I'm sorry but indie games don't help make your platform a success, look no further than Vita to see that. I'm a big fan of the Vita and the indie games have definitely made it worth owning, but the vast majority of consumers don't care and what you're left with is a powerful system that gets wasted because quality third parties don't want to make games for it. Even Ubisoft has pulled its support and that company tries to support everything. Sony is taking the wrong approach here. The indie initiative is good but it should also be trying to counteract what MS is doing. They get Dead Rising 3, ok, well PS4 owners get the next Resident Evil first, or go back to Konami and sign a deal to make Metal Gear Solid at least a one-year timed exclusive. MS tries to reach all of Europe with that great Fifa 14 deal, Sony should be striking back in North America with a deal on NBA 2K or Madden. Not saying, oh here's an old school shump from some indie company that the mass consumer can give two craps about. All Sony's show was the PS4 reveal event and E3 rolled into one and the total lack of first party content has me worried as well. Whoever decided it was a good idea to make GT 6 a PS3 game rather than a PS4 launch game is a complete imbecile.

Have you seen what MS announced for Xbox One's launch? If you haven't, I guarantee PS4 will seem a lot less amazing once you do and this is from somebody who has a PS4 pre-ordered. It seems I bet on the wrong horse this time but I'm going to ride it out and hope Sony proves me wrong. It'd be too late to get in on a first shipment of the X1 anyway even if I did switch my pre-order over.
