Could it be true? A new playstation by winter '13.
Has anyone else seen or heard anything more.
www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/17561795

Games locked to account, not backwards compatible.


Or could it be some big joke released few days too early?

Although over at the Playstation forum

I've read loads of crap about it. I'm not even going to pay attention to it. If even some of the stuff is true Sony can say goodbye to alot of loyal customers.

I find it difficult to see how games can be locked to accounts. Boydie, Scotty & myself had a discussion about this a few weeks ago and without your console being hooked up to the ninja-net its hard to see how it would be possible. Besides that issue, i think that all of the console manufacturers need to have a look at just how big the pre-owned games market is to see that their customers are buying pre-owned games in their droves. Surely this shows that we are less happy to shell out £40-£50 for a game,especially when the vast majority of single player games can be rattled thru on their hardest setting in under 12hrs. That in itself is a farce.

I think this is already in place, or at least in part. Look at GT5s DLC packs. They are account locked, they were only released to other accounts on the same machine after people complained and Sony/PD released a 'key'.

Paul DLC's are totaly different DL codes can be account linked but it's near impossible to do that with Game discs. So expert say

I won't believe any of it until I hear it from the horses mouth. But if it does turn out to be true, I'll be happy with my lowly PS3 for a long time yet!

The rumours of an xbox 'lite' for Kinect, make a lot of sense though, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were true. I'd be very interested in one, Move has left a lot to be desired for me, and although I've never used Kinect, it looks like a far better option than Move.

Rumours about needing an online connection to play are daft as most users of xbox and ps3 dont have their consoles online Sony and M$ would be destroying most of the userbase
