PlayStation 4 officially announced

Check out the stream of what they are showing here. So far no optical drive announced, couple of cool features like DDR5 RAM on board (for system and graphics, shared) 8GB which is enough for the current games. They showed the new Killzone, inFAMOUS and a few more. The system UI looks slick, you can stream games to your friends, record them on the fly and the new Dualshock 4 looks pretty good (touchpad and a redesign).

    From the Diablo III forums:

    Diablo 3 was setup to be a console game.

    The reason only 4 players are allowed into a game is for 4 controllers.

    The reason the quests make you walk in a linear closed circuit as opposed to big open worlds, is to keep your buds next to you on the same screen.

    The reason for no skill points or complicated number crunching? To make console players happy.

    The reason you have 4-5 skills on your bar at once? Very easy to use an Xbox/Ps3 controller to use skills.

    The reason no runes / complicated item mechanics exists. Simply wouldn’t be fun for console gamers.

    The reason you can’t host a named game? Auto join for console users.

    The reason for achievements in game? It’s popular among console / COD fans.

    The reason for passive skills? Perks like Call of Duty uses. Everyone unlocks perks and uses their favorite ones.

    PC gamers are just beta testing for the console release so it wont be full of bugs. That’s how ActiBlizz intends to make the real money.

    Also explains why the game doesn’t have VoIP for Pc gamer chat.

    Diablo 3 is the modern Call of Duty of ARPG’s.

      Well yeah, even before release AB said they wanted D3 on consoles. No surprises there.
