Wow, talk about moving quickly. Sony is said to unveil its Playstation 4 on February 20th, 2013 at one of their media events. With a launch date for Fall 2013. That's incredible, and pretty fast. My PS3 still feels like new. And the fact that they considered ditching a disk tray, if that turns out to be true, jeez. That doesn't bode well at all. If consoles ever go that way, sign me out. I won't pay unless I actually own it. No thank you greedy bastards.

Sony had considered ditching the disk drive and using game downloads but decided that video game file sizes would be too large and Internet connections may be too slow to handle the load. Which means we can still expect the ol' disk bay to be in the PS4. The announcement of the PS4 will beat Microsoft's Xbox 360 successor to the punch, it's unclear if the actual next generation system will too. Both are expected to launch by this holiday season.
