I dunno how I feel about this…
Specs sound cool though: Newly revealed controller for Sony’s just announced Playstation4 - includes touchpad, share button, microphone jack, and a light bar (to be integrated as a Move function, picked up by eyetoy camera).
What do you think?

Despite being shut down by Sony reps previously, Kotaru reports the new console, apparently called Orbis (codename or title, unknown) is still in the works, predicted release in late 2013.
According to Kotaru’s ‘reliable’ source (so say they all), the PS4 unit will not support PS3 games or used/pre-owned titles (or, pre-owned/used titles will require a separate fee in order to gain full access). This is not surprising considering the controversy over used games and the profits the retailer stores gain, where game developers lose.

MCV must have got it wrong, because according to Game Informer at least one of the big consoles will not be announced at this coming E3!
The Wall Street Journal reports that at CES, Sony bigwig (and rumored future president of the company) Kaz Hirai denied speculation that they would be revealing a next-generation console at E3 in June.
“I’ve always said a 10-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that,” Hirai explained.
Looks like Sony fans will be disappointed this coming E3, I wonder what that means for Microsoft? If a 10 year cycle is what the PS3 is in for, and it’s just had their 5th birthday, why is the PS4 available for pre-order? Who were MCV’s sources to confirm the rumours in the first place? Is he bluffing?
Questions dear followers… so many questions….

According to Kotaku & MCVUK, both are expected to be announced at 2012s E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo).
Both consoles have been listed for a time as ‘pre-order’ available in many game retailers systems, however this seems to be the first of a definite announcement of details for both sources (the WiiU has not been a secret for quite a while).
Suspected to be prompted by Nintendos intention to announce specs about their new WiiU console, Microsoft partners have confirmed to MCV the announcement (though rumoured for some time) will go ahead, and Sony execs have made it clear ‘they won’t be left behind this time’.
With such strong competition between the three console developers, who will come out on top?

When I went into work this weekend, I was shocked (and excited!) to see that we have a new option in our pre-ordering screen…

The PS4 has been rumoured since… well, for years and years! But if anyone has noticed, there was a major price drop in the PS3 earlier this month, by about a hundred bucks!
This is different to the 3DS’s price drop (apparently due to a lack of sales, resulting in a 50% salary cut from Nintendo President Satoru Iwata)
[Read more about this here if you already haven’t]
Rumours have it that the PS3 price drop is due to the impending release of the PS4, and though it is rumoured to be as early as late next year, many sources don’t believe it will be happening any time soon.
