Sony PlayStation 4
Blogs around the world are packed with rumours, overheard conversations and anonymous comments regarding what the new games console will bring when it is launched (2nd half of 2013?). 3D gaming at 1080p resolution is a given as much as anything can be a given before launch, the name of the unit will apparently be “Orbis” meaning circle or ring – again, unconfirmed.
What is really interesting (at least in my world) is that Sony apparently intends to build in an “anti-used game restriction”. Not only will you not be able to play PS3 games on your new box, but you will not be able to play your mates games when he has completed them and/or got bored. According to several blogs, new games will be available either on a BluRay disk or as download through your Play Station Network (PSN) account. Disks must be registered to a PSN account before the game can be played, saved or downloaded.
