[Rumor] PS4 is codenamed Orbis and it also hates used games
The codename for the next PS4 is Orbis and it looks like we might be playing one 18 months from now. Rumored to be coming during the 2013 holiday season, the CPU is an AMD x64 chipset, and matches previous things we have heard about the system. There is also talk about the GPU being AMD’s new “Southern Islands” line of high-end cards, capable of displaying games in a resolution of 4096x2160.
Some developers began receiving dev kits as early as this January and a more improved version was shipped out after GDC. This should be enough lead time for companies to build some launch titles for holiday 2013. Here is the thing though; they had better have some launch titles as this system is forgoing any sort of backwards compatibility. And like the rumored Durango, Sony is aiming at the used game market in an attempt to remove it completely. The source claims that
There would be some sort of system that would let you unlock a game from a piece of hardware, but the source was unclear as to how it would be implemented. That seems like it would hurt big box retailers and potentially destroy GameStop in the long-run. Call me reluctant, but the premise that used games might begin to disappear in the next 2-3 years seems pretty dicey. What do you guys think?

I never liked Sony, and this only reinforces that idea.
This is so fake. There's no way that it would be like this...
I love the smell of bullshit in the morning...
A console with DRM. THIS COULDN'T POSSIBLY GO WRONG. Also, no backwards compatability is a rubbish.
People will be complaining now and say they won't buy it, but let's be honest here: people will buy it anyway. Actions speak louder than words, and companies like Sony know they can continue butt-fucking you because they know you'll keep buying their products. That's just the reality of things. I haven't touched anything related to consoles in the past 5 years and it doesn't look like I'll be involved with them in the next generation.
If this actually happens with both the PS4 and the Xbox 720, I will simply quit console gaming. It'll be all PC for me, thank you.
Interesting. Gamers wont have a say in regards to the console having backwards compatibility. The industry seems to be trying to evolve and maximize profits. From a moneyhungry exec standpoint, this seems like the best solution. After all, millions are lost in profits from used games It can also pander to the eco-friendly crowd. The prices of games may also not suffer from inflation if the publishers get to see more revenue for their games and a reduction on piracy. Like the olden days of the 8/16bit consoles.....
If Ms, sony and nintendo all decide to adapt this model, then gamers really wont have a choice...
IM NOT SAYING THIS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO, IM JUST LOOKING AT IT FROM ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE (in case you wanted to go all apeshit on me)
fail. BC is a must
As another thing to run off of your comment with, they now make disc games seem pointless by the wording in their comment to make disc pointless in buying, cause you can just download it.
Last time I checked, we got discs so we could have a physical copy we could share with others.
No backwards compatability? Well, I am not buying one then. The only reason why I got my PS3 despite there being nothing really out for it that I would want to play, was because I could still play my PS2 games on it just fine.
This is a major reason why I may never get a PSV either; all the games I liked for my PSP are on UMD disks, and the Vita is not backwards compatable with them. Good going Sony; you have lost another customer.
Says the man who thinks the guys who invented twin analog stick control, the single most influential design innovation in the last 25 years, didn't know what they were doing.
What part of that doesn't make you an idiot?
fuck off dude. I don't attack your opinions and it's just as easy for me to call you an idiot.
once again, fuck off and post your own comments instead of shitting on other peoples'.
Yes, your opinion may be baseless, stupid, and can easliy be disproven by anyone who knows anything at all about what they're talking about, but you'll stick by it.
Thats what being a complete idiot is all about - being unwilling to admit you're wrong.
Well this is why people crack video games. I personally have not done this on my console's even though it's within my technical ability because, after I am done with a game I can sell it and I do on some level want to support the developers being a developer myself. But, Your telling me if I want to take a game that I purchased legally and bring to a friends to play there instead, Sony won't allow this? Fair enough, then I'm cracking all your games then because your business ethics are so screwed up I will not support your product any further then I am physically able to.
no I meant what I said thank you. you can try to bully other people with your opinions but mine stands as stated.
