All of Your PlayStation 4 News Under One Roof

Well, the dust has settled on the PlayStation 4 announcement in New York, the news is out, and we’ve been tapping away furiously at our keyboards to keep up you up to speed.

So what do we know? We know the PlayStation 4 exists, we know that many of the tech specifications were pretty accurate, we know the controller rumours were bang on and we know a bunch of new and/or repurposed titles are on their way to the system

But we still don’t know what the console looks like, how much it will cost, nor exact release dates. We also had to deal with some silly, time-wasting announcements like the one for Final Fantasy. But then the PlayStation Meeting was just the start. Expect plenty more in the weeks to come.

In the meantime, here’s a collection of links for every scrap of news to be revealed during the event. It’s the dawn of a new age, people.

Please note: All of the stories have now been updated with trailers and vids where appropriate nd available.

"It's the most powerful platform ever," says Sony's Andrew House.

Bungie's title coming to Sony's next-gen platform.

PC title makes a move for consoles.

More amazing footage showcased.

No details though.

Flaming hot.

Sculpt and animate 3D models.

See into his soul!

Indie darling coming to PSN.

Eff the police.

It's beautiful.

Evolution's next-gen racer exposed.

Instant gaming.

It's a funny cartoony thing.

Sharing is caring.

@6 Nah most likely will still be called ps3trophies, if anything they'll rename it to pstrophies or something with trophy in the name, just like when xbox 720 comes out the site will be called or something.

That is to say if they even implement trophies at all (which they 99.9% most likely will). If not then this site will have a bigger problem on hand lol.

OT: My body wasn't ready.

So pumped for this. The first thing I thought when they were talking about a friend taking over your game and giving you a health pack or something like that was YEAH RIGHT! Just waiting for some creative developer to turn this into a game jacking system Demon Souls style. I don't want to be giving people health packs, I want to join in and make things a little more challenging.

@9 Didn't see that part, if they do carry over trophies that's good, wouldn't want to buy a ps4 and have all my hard work on here not carry over (still won't stop me from getting it though). I just hope they don't rename it and call it trinkets or cups or medals or something else.

You have earned a medal.
Buy PS4 on release date.

You have earned a cup
Play in nothing but your underwear for an hour.

You have earned a trinket
Buy our expensive accessories that we should of included in the box, but decided we like to milk you for all your money.

@15 If Sony was a human entity, it would have massive arms just from all the milking it has done to customers in the past.

I guess we wouldn't be hearing news of ps4 today if Sony haven't done that though. So Sony, your welcome.

Whats the point of trophies going to even be if someone else can take over your controller & do the hard shit for you?

Future Craigslist ad:

Do you suck at "xx" game? Cant get that elusive hard ass trophy for 100%? Email me at and ill meet you online, do the game takeover thing, and do it for you! For a nominal fee of course!

Sony...disable trophies when this option is used, or whats the f'n point! Please do not ruin trophy hunting like this!

@19 there's already plenty of ways to cheat at trophies. Not just hacking or file sharing. Unlocked save files that u can back up, deleting game data to erase patches, all types of exploits in games, shit, even using a collectibles guide could be considered cheating by some.
All that being said, this is a stupid and useless idea in my opinion.

@12: True, but they could still start with a clean slate, keeping no record of anything PS3 related in your PS4 profile. Meaning if you want to show off your PS3 trophies to new people you meet on PS4, you'll have to exchange details and tell them to boot up their PS3 to check them out.

I really hope I can both play PS3 games on PS4, and keep record of all my PS3 trophies. It would also be nice if I could view PS4 trophies on my PS3 like I can with Vita trophies (finally).

I doubt trophies won't carry over. When they talked about social networks and how you can use your name and picture, you can see the trophies section in the left and the profile there is at lv 17. I doubt Sony would make their example so high without hinting that trophies carry over.

I'm in. As long as the price is reasonable, I may get the PS4 not too long after it launches unlike the PS3. I still got me a launch 60GB but I waited till they did the $100 price drop before getting it :)

Wow, PS4 looks like a sure thing, I heard somewhere it'd have 3gb system ram and 1gb graphics, VERY happy to hear it'll have a combined total 8gb's made up of 4gb RAM each to System and graphics, this is firmly inside power PC territory, whilst you could find many PC's more powerful than this config, that would be extreeme high-end stuff, even a pc matching the PS4's specs would still be a very powerful and expensive machine today, SO glad to hear they didn't hold back on power, this is very important!

It's a sure thing, I'm preordering it ASAP!

@19 If you're that concerned with how others obtain trophies (whether it be legitimate, cheating, or asking for help from a friend) then you're already taking it way too seriously.

@29 Totally agree. If anybody thinks other gamers look at their trophy collection and drool they are deluded. Wake up people, nobody gives a shit what trophies you have. They only care what trophies THEY have. If somebody wants a hand getting a platinum what's it to you? It should be down to the gamer to decide how they go about getting trophies, no? Personally, I won't bother asking friends to pop trophies for me (unless it really is unavoidable) because if I do, the platinum won't feel special. Anybody who has platted a game that has taken weeks of perseverance and patience knows how wonderful it feels to get a plat so I doubt that "serious" gamers will want to deprive themselves of such a feeling of accomplishment. And, if they do, does it f*ckin' matter??

@31, totally agree. If I had to guess, I bet they let the ps3 account names carry over to ps4 like they are doing with Vita. The whole 1 account thing.. Maybe I don't know cuz that's with the memory card thing. Maybe similar to the vita system where you can look at just vita trophies, or just ps3, and then maybe another option for ps4? Who knows.

I can't be the only one that hopes they will finally give us some degree of customization for trophies? It would be really nice to be able to hide trophies for DLC that we don't intend to buy or to hide or delete trophy sets for games we have no interest in playing again. We trophy collecting types are a bit of an OCD bunch after all and we tend to want things to be just right :-P (Or am I alone in this?)

for the people wondering about trophies, im pretty sure i seen a pic that had trophies on a profile. it was when they were talking about the social aspects of the ps4, and then they showed a profile that included a profile pic like what you would have on facebook, then trophies, and so on.

As far as I'm concerned, Sony nailed the conference and got me super hyped for the PS4. If it can only deliver half of what7s shown off, I'll a happy gamer.

Especially happy with new interface and Facebook-like screen where you can see all your activities, trophies, photo, etc in one place.

Also I couldn't have imagined a better line-up to launch the console. Think I'll cancel my preorder for Destiny and get it on PS4 instead :D

Even though they already showed some content before @ watch dogs.
This gameplay that they showed us look promising.
Let's just hope they take they time they need to make it worth the wait.
And not release the game/games with alot of bugs and unfinished work that they finally fix it after a few weeks. In the time games get fixed these days i am already done with most of them.
Ofcourse i am not negative in it, but they promised something good, so i want to see something good :)

whether i buy it depends on whether the whole 'stream ps3 games to ps4' requires you to rebuy the ps3 game. i mean rebuying ps2 games on the ps3 only worked because people wanted to earn trophies on their old favorites. since both ps3 and ps4 have trophies there will be little if any appeal to rebuy games we already own.

I'm sure there will be PS3/PS4 versions of games in for the next few years. That's how it's been in the past, having last-gen/current-gen versions of the games.

#45 you can't be serious friend? You can't connect the dots? The ps4 is as powerful as a high-end pc... Think about that, were not talking "entry level 4 years ago" like the ps3/360 were when they were released, we're talking specs that would be considered very powerful and highly desirable if you were buying a PC with those specs today. That's what the PS4 is. So the watch dogs demo on PC, is totally relevent, given that it will perform even better on PS4.
