    8GB RAM bitches!

    8GB of RAM should allow for an incredible amount of future proofing, most PC games now wouldn't even consume that much.

    I just bloody hope devs don't sacrifice full 1080p for the sake of pushing the limits... Running at 720p is lame.

    Hopefully it's not all PR, and they actually have something easy to work on for developers.

    New controller looks good. Not sure about this new interface they were talking about.

    Anyone want to bet the final reveal for the physical console will be the size of a desktop computer.

    Not necessarily. Probably similar to a 1st Gen PS3 in size terms.

    Wish they'd show the damn console instead of going on about sharing.

    Good luck with your download caps if this downloads games in the background without you even asking it to.

    Sharing and asking your mates to play is cool, but there was a point where they said "sharing used to mean you had a friend with you on the couch" now apparently nobody socialises rofl

    Edit: oh and if they make "the last of us" ps4 exclusive.. hell to pay.

    'Emotional state of play'? sounds like they've been listening to too many qualcom keynotes

    A part of me is happy they changed the controller (to hopefully something more comfortable), the other part is sad to see the design go :upset:

    Going Outside may mean Agoraphobia for some.

    Unfortunately I dont see me getting fibre optic net with 500gb cap before the PS4 comes out :(

    It all looks and sounds great, but I don't think our internet is up to scratch.

    Instantly jump into any game while it downloads in the background? Live stream to anyone, have your friends jump in at any point remotely etc.

    Thats a lot of fast fast internets required right there!

    Controller doesn't look too bad now, got a few looks at different angles.

    Moving to Asia (South Korea/Japan/Hong Kong) right now for that to work.

    Do people still think a PS4 is a AMD based system?
