I'm not saying it's going to put people off buying it, I'm just saying that doesn't sounds as good as PS4. Depending on the hardware and price I will probably buy one even if it is going to be called the Orbis.

I heard 4K is the same resolution our eyes see in...so it should be the limit for current TV tech or so, I'd say.

I was shocked when I found out that blu-ray rips are under 8GB ( and you see disks with the entire movie on there four or five times just for language settings and bonus features.

A dual layer blu-ray disk could easily hold a 4K movie file and your 1080 file on top for good measure.
(Edit: A little searching reveals, no movies under 14Gigs. Which is why they're working on Quad layer blu-rays!) I've heard people say that the codec doesn't support the required bandwidth for some reason, but the players read fast enough (8X and up) and HDMI 1.4 outputs fast enough, so a tweak in the codec can't be that big a deal (they released blu-ray as an un-finished standard for a reason, right?).

PC hardware has been perfectly capable of running 4Kx2K resolutions for over a generation now, and probably more if people would actually try to run games at anything other than "high" or "ultra" settings. Not to mention that when you're ordering somewhere between 50-100 million units of something, they can afford to tweak it so that it will run smoothly on your given application. Had there been demand for it the PC industry could have made the switch to 4K at any point in the last five years.

Again, trade-offs -> games do have worse graphics and slower framerates then a modern PC. I'm PC all the way. I'd rather spend more and get more than spend less and get less. Just how I prefer it.

*PS3 isn't even 5 1/2 years old yet...
Buuuut still, I have to agree =P

no support for the games i already bought for previous sony systems & gimped support for preowned games? no sale from me. im not going to spend 300-700 on a system to play only one game; not to mention that i have limited shelf space and am not going constantly swap out my ps3 and orbis(stupid name BTW). sony doesnt realize it but 2 things will happen with this system as is
1. places like gamestop and bestbuy will raise game prices to supplant the loss from not being able to sell fully working used games
2. people wont buy it if they cant play the games they already have as new games might cost over 80 a piece

i dont know about the rest of you but, if the system costs 500 and games cost 80 im not paying almost 700(assuming it comes with only one controller) to play one game.
