I'm reserving judgment until I hear their DRM scheme.

If they remain true to their word and SCEE published titles remain DRM free I'll pick it up and those titles, and just build a PC to download cheap, discounted steam licenses for 3rd party publisher games.

I won't be paying full price to publishers thinking they can destroy the used game markets and charge full price for something with less a lot less utility and longevity.

If ps4 does well because of the price then shares of sony will rise before they plan to split up their company into two.

Same here, except for the pc gaming part. I may finally be able to catch up on my backlog of games, which goes all the way back to the SNES!

The legends are true! We’ll once again be livestreaming E3 worldwide over four gut-busting day during the videogame-iest time of the year. The live E3 broadcast (available in nine languages!) begins this Monday, June 10th at 5:30pm Pacific/8:30pm Eastern with the PlayStation E3 2013 Press Conference, the most exciting (and most Tweeted-about) event on the PlayStation calendar.

Then, starting Tuesday, June 11th at noon Pacific Time, we’ll kick off three days of our PlayStation LiveCast show featuring gameplay demos and developer interviews for zillions of upcoming PS4, PS3 and PS Vita games. Expect to see Beyond: Two Souls from Quantic Dream, Destiny from Bungie, DriveClub from Evolution Studios, The Evil Within from Tango GameWorks, Gran Turismo 6 from Polyphony Digital, inFAMOUS: Second Son from Sucker Punch Productions, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Killzone Mercenary from Guerrilla Games, The Last of Us from Naughty Dog, Tearaway from Media Molecule, Wolfenstein: The New Order from MachineGames and many, many more. All told, we’re planning to showcase more than 40 games across PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.

Looks like E3 will be a race to who can gamer moar. Pretty exciting after the last few lackluster E3's!

I wonder just how many will be Vita games?

Sony seems to have left the poor thing by the road hoping people would feel sorry for it...

Cardboard box with Free Vita's written on it. Come on you know you want to adopt one.

I still use my Vita for youtube and movie watching in bed. still works after all this time. Screen is looking good.

Needs to learn new tricks before it gets older.

Isn't the Vita due for an upgrade soon? I never saw a compelling reason to buy it with tablets out there but some cool integration might sway me.

Older? After all this time? It's just over a year and half old. I'm thinking we won't see a hardware revision anytime soon. If they offer remote play of the PS4 on Vita without needing to actually be near the PS4 I might just buy one.

I think we are all interested in the Vita for Wii U style off TV play with an eventual PS4 purchase. But Sony is selling the hardware at a 50% markup to retailers due to high digital sales, they will lose money off of those sales. Every Vita game I want, Sony has given me through Plus, and I don't even own a Vita, that is troublesome.

the vita screen is OLED right? That stuff isn't cheap yet.

Oh but wait, we're gamers and expect it all to be free.

Take a 3g-vita back to 1990 and it'd be worth millions with its insane tech ;-)

I don't mind the sony hackers, because if I was whacking my bag in front of the TV, the vita won't be pointed at me.

You forgot VS XIII. At least Naughty Dog brought us two bew IPs this gen... I can forgive the lack of a new Jak game for that one.

Well we did at least get HD Jak collection on the PS3. Uncharted was a fairly ok trade off. /s

That camera is easily nullified with electrical tape and no microphone that I know of. It also is not required to be on to play games. Nice try, thanks for playing, buh bye.

I would actually be happier if the shirt said "PS HEART Gamers". I agree on wanting to hear from Sony about how they are handling things next gen. A big concern for me is my Fanatec wheel and if that will work on the PS4.

I just want a damn great gaming machine. I won't get upset about the extras, even if they aren't meant for me. At the end of the day, I want to play fun games with my friends. Hopefully one of the two companies gives me that.

Sony, please don't do this ******** with the PS4. Nintendo didn't, so there is hope.

I want to be able to rent games, lend games out to friends and borrow games. I want to be able to sell games to other people aside from very specific retail partners of MS. I want to be able to play even if I'm not connected to the internet every 24 hours.

I don't sell or borrow or gift. But I rent. That's the only thing they said there's absolutely none of.

If they don't have some plan in place to get that going, Xbone is a "never going to buy" from me.

Goes the same for Sony, if they come with this same policy.

Sony has a huge leg up with me already, but they better not screw it up.

C'mon Sony! I'm hoping you take advantage of this and crush the XBone.
