    Will it be something you can just play or will it be like an X Box 360 where it won't let you even play a game till you choose a fucking avatar out of their selection of cutesy childish animations, feed your username in, mothers maiden name, first school, best pets name, favorite colour, blah blah blah.
    The control were this >< far off being launched across the room with all that bollocks.

    And I didn't even want to play on line anyway.

    Sony seem to be pushing the "media centre" concept all the more with the new console.

    As for the online gaming thing...it's the way things are going and isn't going away any time soon. Expect more games with micro transactions that will require you to include bank details in your account setup.

    While online gaming is used as a shiny selling point it seems to have replaced actual content on a lot of newer games which is a big reason I dont buy many games now.
    I also would be reluctant to buy anything that calls itself a 'media centre' , that just smacks of something that does lots of mediocre things, most of which you'll never use or need.

    I hear you on the "online" thing. To be honest the best games for single player content seem to be shifting back towards the PC again. Depends what kind of games you like really?

    Hah, that reminds me of this:

    Computer bug - Wikipedia
    Yet, credit for popularizing the term is generally accorded to computer pioneer Grace Hopper, who it is said, "...traced an error in the Mark II to a moth trapped in a relay. The bug was carefully removed and taped to a daily log book. Since then, whenever a computer has a problem, it's referred to as a bug."

    Have they? MS have never commented on rumour or speculation in the past.

    If they have, then I agree with you.

    By the way, it sounds like Sony might not have ruled it out either. LINKY

    Sony: Fear not, the PlayStation 4 will play used games | Tech Culture - CNET News

    Speaking to Eurogamer, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida attempted to lay to rest any concerns that the just-announced console would prevent people from playing second-hand games. Discussing the idea of restricting the play of used games, Yoshida touched upon the expectation of customers: that once you have bought a physical disc, you should be able to use it how and where you will.
    "That's the general expectation by consumers," said Yoshida. "They purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that's my expectation." The Sony executive continued: "So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?"

    "That is my expectation" and not "It will definately play used games"

    It still doesn't sound 100% certain.
