re: Playstation 4 Reveal Thread With Live Links (No Console Shown)


So why did they add the touch screen section to the controller?

I always thought it was kind of a way to quickly access the dashboard.

ETA: The PS button.

So without it popping up on the screen? You just have it in hand? Maybe it pulls up the start screen in game? IE, switching classes in the middle of a game without covering the game itself?

I'm good for more ?s if you want em

It's not a touch screen really, but a touch pad. Like the back of the Vita. I'm sure it could be used well in some applications. Gives developers something else to use.

That's awesome. As I said a little earlier, I still think them nailing the live streams of friends games would make me instantaneously pre-order when available.

I remember with the dreamcast controller, when playing football, you could pick your plays from it instead of doing it on the screen, which I guess helped if you were playing with someone in the same room.

Well you clearly have all the facts in order to make such an informed decision and gain credibility


OH wait, no, you dont. you think ps4 is going to dominate 720 due to 8 GB of gddr5? When we don't know 720 specs? Or anything really even about the ps4?

That's what it looked like to me. OK.

Using gestures on the touch pad (i.e. iPad/Win8) would be cool for multi-menu quick access. Think Skyrim (swipe up for skills, right for inventory).

Wow this thread got a little crazy


Anyway I will say this and this only for my argument on XBOX vs. PS

PS = Foreigners

XBOX = 'Merica


XBOX FTW

Honestly, I have no clue. That was just what I read a while back.

eh, I don't think so. I don't remember them saying it could bring the XMB menu up on it, but I think they said it's going to help with messages so there's probably going to be a keyboard that shows up.

It probably also shows the sleep button( ) which will be really easy to resume games.

A keyboard would be nice for sure.

Does the sleep button shut it off or just lock it kind of like a computer, but the PS3 is always on?

Sleep button puts it into a low power state much like the sleep button did on PSP and Vita,

It was obviously a joke. I had hoped the thread wouldn't turn into a Sony vs MS thread, but it did.

I can find links showing Xbox winning 2012 worldwide too like the one above


Either way, you only talked about MS dominating the last 3 years. Which is blatantly false.

Apparently the 8gigs of RAM was a last minute decision. Developers had known of only 4gigs of RAM. LINK
