- May 15, 2013 - Industry Heavyweights Weigh In On The PlayStation 4
Welcome to your weekly dose of PlayStation 4 news from around the Web!
First off we have a new game announcement, hot off the presses! Bethesda has just announced Wolfenstein: The New Order for next generation consoles, expected by the end of 2013. Expect a full PS4 Experts look on this game in the coming days!
In hardware news, we've learned that Sony is giving developers power over the "Share" button, allowing them to enable and disable the feature at will. The reasoning behind this is that developers might not want players to spoil important plot or character information, like a game's final boss. Could Sony be making a mistake allowing developers to disable one of the main features that makes the PS4 stand out? Only time will tell.
On the subject of used games, analyst Michael Pachter has stated that despite Sony allowing developers to block used games, the developers won't go in that direction. Good news for GameStop and your wallet!
You already know the PS4 would be hard to get at launch but now Sony is apparently falling behind schedule on PS4 production, reports Nasdaq, which will lead to a shortage of the system in the US. Best lock in that preorder ASAP when the release date is announced!
That's all for this week! Check back every Tuesday for your look at the hottest gaming news from around the Web, only at PS4 Experts.
In an interview with Gamespot, Quantic Dream co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere had plenty of good things to say about the PlayStation 4. As you'll recall, Quantic Dream was a PlayStation 3 exclusive developer last generation, responsible for smash hit Heavy Rain, so they know a thing or two about PlayStation development. Here are the highlights of the interview:
- The PlayStation 4 is like "something that really is more like the PC of next year or two years."
- The Quantic Dream demo shown at the PS4 reveal conference is only the beginning of what the PS4 technology can do.
- Quantic Dream saw a major improvement with the PS4 when running tests comparing both the PS3 and PS4.
While we already know the PS4 was more powerful than its predecessor, Fondaumiere has confirmed that the PS4 is more powerful than any of us believed.
But that's not all that's going on with the PlayStation 4 this week!

April 26th, 2013 -- Next Xbox Revealed On May 21st
May 21st, 2013 will finally reveal the last major player in the next generation war, as Microsoft is set to reveal the new Xbox to the world on this date at 10:00 AM PST.
What does this mean for PS4 fanatics? Well, it means we may see a large amount of new game releases on the 21st, as rumors state that many companies were holding back on announcing their multiplatform next generation games until all the consoles were revealed. One game that keeps coming up in this regard is Battlefield 4 in addition to a new Call of Duty.
Even though you may not be interested in the next Xbox, it may be a good idea to check out the conference just to see what potential new multiplatform games the PS4 will receive. We'll have all the details of the conference at our sister site at Xbox-Experts as they happen!
April 22nd, 2013 -- Denny Talks PS4 Design
Further speaking with Edge, Sony Worldwide Studios vice president Michael Denny talked about the PlayStation 4 design and why Sony chose to show the DualShock 4 and not the actual PlayStation 4 console:
"I think it's [the PS4 controller] more relevant to what we were just talking about there, that the controller is a very important aspect of the physical design that influences the gameplay. So that's why it's more important for us to talk about the controller at that event because of course we wanted to talk about how we'd improved the DualShock 3..."
Since the February reveal was focused specifically on the gaming aspect of the system, it definitely makes sense for Sony to focus on the controller as that is what we'll be spending our time with. When asked about the look of the PlayStation 4, Denny, who must have a second career as a politician, skated around the issue with ease:
"I'm not sure it's instructive for me to start trying to describe or talk about what I've seen or haven't seen in terms of the actual look of the box. But yeah, you know it's going to be another fantastic design and we can't wait to reveal it."
It's expected that Sony will reveal the look of the console in June at E3 2013.
In an interview with Edge, Sony Worldwide Studios vice president Michael Denny had some choice quotes about not only the PlayStation 4's price but how Sony learns from past experiences:
