I have just read the GT6 will be announced next week but for PS3/Vita only. I find this a very strange move by Sony

What with that and Beyond Two Souls and GTA5 coming out at the end of the year.

What is going to motivate people to buy the PS4?

Yes they have new Creed and COD, but you can get them on PS3.

Surely it would make sense for the PS4 to get a massive exclusive, otherwise not many players are going to upgrade.

Why not wait until E3 when more games will be announced?

There's also Gamescom and the Tokyo Game Show to come afterwards with a few smaller events happening in between those which will have new game announcements.

Will do. I just hope Turismo 6 get's released for PS4. That alone would push me towards buying one.

Why did you buy your HD TV? You could have just watched the same stuff on SD channels.

Improved experience.

Let us compare to the PS3 launch line-up and see which games were cross-gen and which were PS3 only. I'm using USA here because of the delayed EU launch messing with games and what would have been launch titles and what would have been launch window titles.

Cross-gen
Blazing Angels
COD 3
Madden NFL 07
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
NBA 2K7
NHL 2K7
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07
Tony Hawk's Project 8

Exclusive
Genji: Days of the Blade
Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire
Resistance: Fall of Man
Ridge Racer 7

So as you can see you always get lots of cross-gen games.

They've promised us the strongest launch line-up for a PlayStation yet.

Having just read the new Gran Turismo is PS3 i'm absolutely baffled. Why on earth aren't these big gaming titles being developed for PS4?

Because they cost tens of millions of dollars and they won't make a return on their investment.

Because they take a long time to make and the PS3 hardware hasn't been finalised for long enough.

The launch line up will be full of games that take less time to develop such as CoD and so forth or PC ports.

The PS3 still is expensive and not under 100 yet!
With a 70 million install base I am glad AAA content is still coming out this year. But after that Sony titles will all be made for the PS4/Vita.

Speaking of Vita, this will be my next gaming hardware purchase, as I 've only starting to finish my PSP habits and want to play all the Vita games I've acquired though PS+.

I am not really an early adopter myself.

If it used SD cards I would have bought one but the price of Vita cards are a joke.

32GB Vita Card - 60
32GB Class 10 SD Card - 15

yeah, well it comes with a 4GB card. I'd just have to settle with playing 2 or 3 games at a time!

There are going to be crap loads of PS4 games announced at E3! Its going to be a very entertaining week indeed.

All launch titles for the PS4 have to be at E3 so there should be lots to see

That's 4GB unformated so it will be less and games such as Uncharted are 2.7GB.

It's like a step backwards from my PSP Go... I will wait for them to see sense with their second edition.

yeah...Sony seems to be on fire at the moment on all their Playstation fronts.

Out of interest, which is likely to fall faster. The PS Vita or the Vita memory card. I can wait for a Vita price drop, I don't think the PS+ games are going anywhere soon!

'Have to' as in mandated or have to as in it would be foolish not to show up?

I would like to see a revision that either adds an SD card slot or internal storage like the Go. I'm in no rush, all my pennies are saved for a PS4

Hmm, wonder if GT6 on the PS3 will be a revised version of GT5? What else can they do with the PS3 other than add new cars and tracks? Can the visuals be pushed forward on the PS3?

I have no incentive to buy a PS4 at the moment other than liking things that are shiny and new. I have a feeling this will change once games and features start being announced.

Wasn't there only 1 GT on PS3, which came out 3-4 years ago? So plenty they could do to it.

2 and a half years ago, and I guess you could count Prologue as being 2 games on the PS3?
