Well that story was badly written and edited it was sad to read. Only interesting thing is the production halt on PS2. Perhaps freeing up production lines/space? I know for our industry tooling for new lines takes about 2 months.

Just for the record, we are happy to have separate chats for each console type as this thread got very convoluted previously.

Yeh perhaps a Sony / MS / Nintendo / other thread would be good. You are right about the old thread being a bit all over the place. Especially since the next gen consoles will be generating a fair bit of news soon

Interesting read

As it relates to both Sony and Microsoft, I thought I would put it here

THQ has been sold - or should I say split up.

Quote
The proposed sales of multiple assets is as follows:
 - Sega agreed to purchase Relic
 - Koch Media agreed to purchase Volition and Metro
 - Crytek agreed to purchase Homefront
 - Take 2 agreed purchase Evolve and
 - Ubisoft agreed to purchase Montreal and South Park

They look interesting but I think they need to make the GPU's swappable so the machines can last the expected life cycle, my favourite quote from that clip.... "But not that guy....he's stupid" LMAO.

Can't watch the video at work but still not convinced there will be anything compelling in the next generation.  Think my next "console" will be a home grown HTPC.

Actually Ant they are not looking too shabby but as with all consoles they will age quickly if you can't swap parts out. Admittedly having consoles as well as PC's to upgrade could become expensive :)

And, to me, a console with swappable parts is just a PC with a custom OS.

I guess one of the benefits of consoles is that it is a stable, known, platform for a very long time so developers are willing to invest in them.  Although this doesn't seem to be holding back PC developers anymore.

You are right but there are still exclusives that will keep us in the console game.

I doubt swappable parts other than HDD are on the cards. I don't expect much more than what's out now. Just a bigger number on the current components.

I'm going to have to look up Koch Media as they bought Saints Row.

I must say that game was dumb and fun :P

yeah if I had my way the PS4 would be $3000 and control GPS satellites for fun but I get the feeling Sony and M$ have realistic ideas in store for us.
