    I think it's more like "anyone can get 85% of the power right away, but over time they'll be able to reach 100%" for the PS4, while the PS3 was "it will take anyone over a year to get 50% of the power, but man 100% is going to be great...in 5 years."

    Damn, I wish I could go to this con at least once, but I can't get time off. Even if I could, passes are all sold out. It sounds like it is impossible to get into the thing.

    Sony has been rolling out videos and pictures from games the last few weeks.

    This development blog.. with game clips, shows a look at how the new controller and gameplay will work in Infamous: Second Son
    I loved the Infamous series, so eager for this one.

    I really hoped that the October 21st rumor was true because its only a week after my birthday, but mid November is fine. Should give me something to miss while I'm at Thanksgiving dinner. I'm surprised there's no PS Vita bundle but I could see Sony or retailers selling one.

    More like sharing "rules." I think this is actually less restrictive and more open than the PS3 was.

    Nice to see Sony following Apple's lead and seriously reducing the packaging that systems ship in:

    It's pre-day1, they made a mistake on not supporting non streaming media better, it will be rectified.If you are in their shoes do you support the things that are going to lead to more games and services being paid for or do you fix the stuff that adds no value to you? If it's me I fix that stuff long term but it's not a priority. You can afford to blow off the cinephiles, you don't piss off the gamers. MS and Sony have somehow crossed into bizarro worlds and have switched their positions from previous generation launch, Sony can add on more media support, I'm not sure MS will be able to connect with the crazy media things they are doing long term, we'll see.

    Also, while the breakdown removes the hard disk after the seals are broken I am told it is actually much easier to do it, same as on PS3. Remove a cover and it's exposed for easy replacement.
