I'm going to be disappointed but unsurprised if PS4 retails $599 base. We know essentially nothing about the console itself, but nothing they could pack into it is worth that to me, honestly. I just want something sturdy and streamlined with a lot of great games.

It's amusing to me that I'm being labeled a Sony fanboy when I never even bought a PS2. I was a Nintendo fanboy for years until the games started to slip with GCN. The PS3 library is much more well-rounded and creative than the other systems (though that could change with the PS4, who knows) but I still own a 360 because third party games are 9 times out of 10 better on the 360 than the PS3. The Cell really fucked with developers.

Star Wars: Battlefront Teaser Trailer - YouTube

Good golly, Battlefield 4 multiplayer looks so good. If they do nothing other than take the exact same engine and port a Star Wars game into it, I'll be crazily happy.

EA should have announced Battlefront last because it dominated everything else in their press conference. Looks totally awesome.

Hahaha 20 second long standing ovation for the "yes, we allow used games" announcement.

EDIT: And it keeps going. Sony has dedicated at least 3 minutes to a "we aren't Microsoft" section. A little cheap, but I appreciate the clarity.

Yet they really glossed over the "multiplayer costs money now, so we are absolutely Microsoft" section. I wonder how many people weren't paying attention and didn't even notice what they'd announced.

I preordered both systems today.

That was "announced" in February. You get so much free shit with a PSN membership that it doesn't really matter (and $10 cheaper than Xbox Live Gold) and if it means the servers are more stable, I'll take it. Microsoft's multiplayer setup was way better, maybe now they'll have an impetus to clean it up.

Let me check here, though, it's still $50 a year for PS+ right?

Sony took a big ole poop on Microsoft.

Official PlayStation Used Game Instructional Video - YouTube

Whatever, in exchange for being patient and waiting for digital distribution, Sony will avoid all the negative PR of Microsoft but ultimately end up at the same point in ~5 years. Saving $5 on used games is kind of a shitty choice anyways so either option didn't bug me too much. And I don't mind the P+ being mandatory for multiplayer since I feel it has a connection to providing the service; it was things like Microsoft double-dipping and making me pay twice for Netflix that annoyed me.
