My slim PS3 is silent. I didn't even realise there was a fan in it. The only noise it makes is the disc drive when it spins up.

By most accounts the later PS4s are quiet (and some of the early ones too) so it shouldn't be too hard for them to make a new one at least as quiet.

Because they should have learnt from the PS3 losing out to the Xbox 360 that you can't rest on your laurels.

Playing the Doom beta made my PS4 very loud, I imagine U4 will too.

Does kinda make sense - as the speed technology expires nowadays people are used to shorter upgrade cycles.

Plus they are architecturally identical just with faster clocks, bus speeds and more compute units on the graphics card. So it’s not massively different than an iOS device upgrade where everything you had before still works, just a bit quicker – but those who don’t upgrade can run the same software.
They seem to have made not splitting the user base the primary requirement and as the discs, downloads, peripherals, psn friends and store remain the same. Putting anything other than the

performance uplift behind the 4.5 seems wise, as the New 3DS having exclusive software became really confusing for consumers.

No doubt it will cause contention within the community as there is an expectation of a 5 year life-cycle on consoles. Especially for those who’ve recently purchased a console. Not overly sure I like the precedent it sets, but that said I’d probably upgrade as I’ve had really good use out of my launch day PS4.

Digital Foundry are confirming Giant Bomb's story. I'm quite excited, these are the specs this generation should have had at launch. They should be able to pull off 1080p60 gaming pretty easily.

You'll get 6-9 months fun out of it easily before the new one is out.

No mention of 4K Blu-ray support, why would they leave it out ?

I don't suppose the people making games for the machine need to know about that.

I think both Sony and Microsoft would have liked to have been off 28 nm by then, but it wasn't to be.

As long as there doesn't end up with a two tier release of games to confuse matters I'm fine with the new machine.

Most folks arn't bothered about 60fps or 4K so it'll be strictly for the tech heads and to make VR more stable.

I suspect they'll market it in a similar way to the retina iPad/iPhone, that it's a visual upgrade there if you want it - but it won't stop you doing anything by not having one.

I suspect as people move to 4K they'll want something to deliver content, many people I know bought a PS3 as a Blu Ray player when they made the jump to HD. Although most of the ones I know connected it via SCART and then said "I can't see the difference."

I bought my PS3 because of its Blu-ray drive. I'll buy the PS4k if it has a 4k Blu-ray drive, if it doesn't ? then I'll wait to see what Microsoft offers.

Bit surprised by a better spec ps4, if the leak is to be believed Sony state all games will work on both machines but the new one will be just better frame rate - which is better than "you can't play this game"

Microsoft actually very seriously considered the same idea with the 360 but obviously decided against it. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony did at the time as well. I'm pretty sure that if it works you'll head to a future where there's no new 'Generation', just a console that has new iterations.

If it has all 4k streaming options and Bluray 4k at $400 then it'll definitely sell as a 4k box.

Microsoft are going to have to respond surely as they're already way behind PS4 in terms of sales?
